Our primary aim when installing is to get it right from the start, ensuring a quality service is provided from the inception of any project undertaken by the team. The key criteria when installing reliable and structured cabling for a solution, lies in the systems backbone. Systems integration, subsystems and wireless networking are also important factors to consider when beginning the installation process. Every dwelling and building requires appropriate infrastructure to incorporate various technology. Networks and structure need to be carefully assessed from the project start. The correct set up ensures that any proposed solutions we offer are flexible to future changes and upgrades in technology. Proper application of industry standards, design and planning are essential for our team to assure minimal down time to our Clients.

VOIP Telephony

Voice Over IP (VOIP) is the leading technology in digital switchboard solutions. Telephones operate over a network where all data technology runs via populated card servers and through selected custom software. Handsets, including a switchboard console, are deployed throughout an office on a LAN that can be interfaced with the outside world using the internet, analogue or ISDN lines. These are connected to the office server via on-board interface cards allowing the VOIP solution to only run over the LAN that has been installed. A multi-party call can be initiated through telephone number restrictions that are made available to the systems external lines. Voice recordings are saved onto the office server with enough storage space for a period of 6-12 months (depending on the number of calls and recordings made). Archived recordings can be copied to a backup disc or stored directly onto a network server, which can be retrieved through browser interface using a set username and password. Recordings can be searched using various methods including extension number selection, specified user or a stipulated date. Several options are available including multiple user preferences, providing individual access to certain recordings. There are various additions and adaptations that can be incorporated into a VOIP solution to best suit your business.

 

Services_0008_Green-blockVideo and Audio conferencing

Video Conferencing (VC) has traditionally been the standard practice for remote business communications. VC uses telecommunications from audio and video to bring people together locally, nationally and even globally in real time. This can include a private conversation between two people (point-to-point) or several members (multi-point) all at different sites. VC offers a wide range of possibilities to corporate companies, educational institutions, hotels, restaurants, bars, conference venues and training centres. The alternative, which in our experience is generally used for smaller businesses, is Audio Conferencing (AC). This solution offers the user(s), from any location or destination , an audio-only meeting operated via a telephone system. These meetings are either scheduled and co-ordinated by a call centre service or a user with a designated phone number and/or code. However, as technology continues to advance Collaboration is becoming more and more popular in this space.

 

Services_0008_Green-blockCollaboration

Collaboration is the evolution from the previously standardised VC boardroom for video conferencing. Each service has its own merits and supports multiple approaches to communication, learning and research. VC is expected to be the preferred communication platform worldwide within the next two years. Selecting a service is dependent upon the task at hand. Features can include slide show presentations, interactive whiteboards and application sharing. Virtual Meeting Rooms (VMR) are an additional package option that can be included. These meetings are hosted in a ‘virtual environment’ allowing you to connect through the cloud and participate using a variety of technology devices such as an iPhone, iPad, android or laptop. Collaboration is fast becoming a popular choice for corporates worldwide in an effort to decrease expenditure on travel and accommodation costs for business meetings and presentations.

Integrated Control & Automation

Integration control & automation

We often hear industry terminology such as “integrated solutions”, “home automation” and “control systems”. In our experience these solutions are often misinterpreted when specifying the purpose and functionality for a system, home or office environment. Each element has been designed for a specific purpose and although they are often linked and work collectively, their functionality is unique and definitive.

 

Integration is the design element that enables systems to work together, in a symbiotic relationship, where the sum of combined systems has greater flexibility than when used individually i.e. lighting, electric blinds and air-conditioning or alarm systems and CCTV cameras.

 

Control is when the user needs to interface with a physical device that the allows them to send a command setting in motion an event or chain of events, a “macro command” in their integrated system. The physical device could be anything from a wall mounted keypad to a hand held Smartphone or Tablet. Quite simply, when a person is required to push a button to achieve a desired result, we call this control.

 

Automation on the other hand is virtually the opposite of Control. In a fully automated solution the human element is removed and a system is developed that runs according to various parameters set in the design and programming of the system.

To achieve optimum integrated control and automation these three elements are encoded and utilised to work together, providing you with state of the art technology that will simplify and enhance your lifestyle.

Integrated Building Technology

Integrated-Building-Technology

Building requirements and demands can vary drastically. In the fast paced and dynamic world we live in, ground breaking technology is becoming the standard, set by society, to enhance the environments around us. Integrated building technology (IBT) adds value to the space around you providing increased comfort, flexibility and cost saving solutions. Meeting the stipulated energy efficiency requirements and complying to health & safety regulations both cover a wide range of disciplines that can be programmed and automated into any modern building or development. A total building solution can be tailored to numerous specific needs and requirements, from access control to intelligent lighting and pre-programmed room scheduling. The list of possibilities and savings that IBT presents are impressive. We have learnt that it is imperative to be involved from the start on these projects, ensuring open lines of communication are initiated between our team and the developers to reach optimum efficiency and project success.

Audio, Video & Distribution

Audio, Video & Distribution

The distribution of audio and video have many components that can function together or separately, depending on the desired outcome. There are numerous elements that can be used to achieve the specific requirements that best suit you and your lifestyle. Our team prefers to focus on providing Clients with superior quality, high-end electronics. Due to the capability and complexity of these products they are often not made available to the public in countrywide stores or online shopping sites. The most sought after solutions are:

 

    • High Fidelity (Hi-Fi) is a high-end stereo system for the discerning listener looking to reproduce their favourite bands, singers and music in a selected environment. The product choices and matching the right electronics, cables and speakers are key to achieving the best possible recreation to a live event. Our team work together in creating systems that musically project a sound stage that is high, deep and wide. Holographic imaging is the term commonly used to describe the effect when a system has been set up correctly. The end goal is to be able to close your eyes and the sound projected makes you feel that the artist and their band members are playing in the room with you.

 

    • Multi-Room systems are designed to enable numerous audio and video sources to be distributed throughout a home or office environment at the same time. Each source has the ability to play independently or throughout the equipped rooms, allowing different volumes in each zone. This allows everyone’s needs to be met, keeping any number of people under one roof, happy and able to watch or listen to their own choice of music, movies or television. We will discuss all options available and design a bespoke package to meet your specifications.

 

  • Surround Sound was originally developed and used for Disney studios. It is therefore fit to say that the enriching quality of immersive audio, provided by the right installation of a surround sound system, will bring any movie experience right into your lounge or living area. If you are looking to emulate the experience of a movie in the comfort of your home then this solution is for you.

Home Theatres

Home Theatre

A home theatre takes the surround sound ‘movie experience’ solution to the next level. A customised home theatre is for movie enthusiasts wanting to bring the cinema experience into their home. There are so many elements that can be included when designing a home theatre room such as, acoustic treatments, theatre chairs, a projector and screen, interior decor, lighting, hi-end audio and just about anything that brings the full cinematic experience into your home.
