WiFi - Issues & Resolution
We are specialists in resolving WiFi issues in either homes or small businesses.
For example, we have completed a number of recent Garden Room projects where clients have needed to extend their existing WiFi into an outbuilding and everything they have tried has been unsuccessful. We have a number of solutions that have been proven to work reliably and are cost effective so feel free to get in touch to discuss your options.
Starlink Installations for rural locations
Do you live in a rural location where your existing internet service is either slow or unreliable or both?
We have successfully completed Starlink installations in rural locations that included the Starlink install and also any associated cabling and network equipment.
Our clients have gone from slow and unreliable internet to having a reliable connection allowing the whole household to use the internet at the same time and with multiple streaming services working (e.g. Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube etc.)
Consulting & Implementing
Want a Smart Home or Smart Business but don't know where to start?
Not sure what products you should use and those you should avoid?
Not sure how to “future proof” yourself so when your requirements grow or change you don’t have to start from scratch?
Want to be able to control your lights or other devices even if there’s an internet outage?
Let us help to plan out your project and determine the right products are used from the beginning to avoid costly mistakes.
Whether it’s just a simple voice assistant, a security camera or a whole home/business solution, making the right choices at the beginning of your "Smart" journey are critical. Many people think they only want the basics and then realise the power of having a smart home/business only to find that when they want to expand it, the systems won’t “talk” to each other. We can mitigate any issues with this.
Let us come and discuss your requirements and plans beforehand. A cost-effective initial consultation could save you from making costly mistakes.
Smart Home Control Tablets
Having any Smart controls, especially lighting, easily accessible is vital in any Smart Home or Business.
Let us design & build your own bespoke Smart Home tablet using widely available inexpensive technology – either wall mounted or on a stand.
Fully customisable by either you or us as required.
Bespoke lighting designs using commercially available and/or configurable options (Hue, WLED, LightWave, Govee etc.)
We can advise on all types of lighting, whether it's indoor smart bulbs, replacement smart wall switches, outside garden lights or outbuildings, LED lighting for the kitchen or smart lighting for a Business etc.
Today’s lives are busy and keeping track of everyone’s schedules can be tricky.
We can help to design and build family or business based dashboards showing pertinent information for each of your family or business members:
