Rob Milstead, Technical Operations Director


After 16 years serving for the British Military in the Royal Engineers the company was established in 2005 by Robert Milstead, initially concentrating on IT networks, datacenter and IT communications management for the financial sector.

Home automation goes beyond mere audio distribution offered by hi-fi installers and relies on a well designed, reliable network design to provide a bespoke solution for your audio visual, IT, security and home control requirements. With a background in IT and Cedia certification in AV you can be sure you’re getting the right skills required to provide the design that works for you.

Approaching projects with military precision and standards for design and implementation ensures you get the right solution, on time and within budget with a quality of service second to none to create your vision.

Whether your vision is for your home, office, or yacht, we believe the solution should fulfil your lifestyle aspirations not just technology requirements.

We employ an expert team of qualified installation engineers who are trustworthy, friendly and dedicated to providing the high level of service that our customers deserve. All of our engineers have the internationally recognised CEDIA qualification as well as specific installation qualifications relating to the home automation systems we install.
