The homeowner sought a smart lighting control solution to span the entirety of the property and the rear garden area. The lighting also needed to be programmable for when the family is away on holiday.
Although the preferred method of control was via an app due to its flexibility, touchscreen controllers and remote controllers were also essential for the younger members of the household.
Building contractor, Robert’s 21st Century Design Ltd. suggested Hamilton’s Smart Lighting Control System, which not only met the brief but offered the homeowner the option of matching the finish of the smart controllers with all other wiring accessories throughout the property for a seamless, coordinated look.
Hamilton’s Area Sales Manager, Peter Bonnington, finalised the system spec and local wholesaler, Welham Electrical supplied the Smart Controls and wiring accessories.
The final install was undertaken by Robert’s 21st Century Design Ltd., and the Company owner Robert Ciuraru said: “The client was looking for a simple and cost-effective way of automating the lighting scheme and we recommended the Hamilton system after previously installing it at a smaller scale with fantastic results. Having installed it in this much larger project, we found more advantages in using Hamilton and even easier ways to wire the system – taking our three-man team of electricians two days to install. We will keep recommending the Hamilton system as it’s simple to install and ticks all the boxes for our clients.”
It took one of Hamilton’s Smart Control Engineers just a few hours to fully commission the system, and ensure it met the exact requirements in all areas of the home, inside and out.
Smart control touchscreen plates and matching push-button wiring accessories were chosen in the Hartland CFX design with a satin stainless-steel finish. Wall-mounted touchscreens were installed in the hall area, ground floor corridor, kitchen/diner and first floor landing, with push-button controllers fitted in each room with four pre-programmed lighting scenes and up to three dimming settings. All accessible via The Hamilton App for easy programming.
Located in the basement with virtually no natural light, the cinema room was transformed into an atmospheric relaxation area with multi-scene mood lighting. With a mechanical button control plate, all members of the household could select the most appropriate lighting setting for their viewing habits.
The installation provided an impressive yet functional lighting control solution throughout the property and garden. The coordinated accessories provide a slick look that blends into the contemporary décor and suits the look and feel of the home. Ticking the client’s final requirement, the holiday mode system offers peace of mind when the family is away from home.
“I’m thrilled with the system – it does everything I wanted it to do, seamlessly and effortlessly. The children love the lighting control, and the app and controllers are so easy to use that it’s completely accessible to them,” said the homeowner. “For me, style is also extremely important and the ability to match all the switches and sockets has given a cohesive feel that shows the level of attention to detail we’ve taken in all areas and aspects of the home. It was a smooth and pleasant experience working with Hamilton and Welham Electrical on the project and I couldn’t be happier with the result.”
Gavin Williams, Marketing Manager at Hamilton, said: “Hearing feedback like this makes all our efforts worthwhile. We invest heavily to ensure our products are designed and developed with the utmost quality and easy-to-use functionality, both for the end user and the installer. I’m delighted that the homeowner and his family are enjoying the performance and aesthetics of our smart lighting control system and that through excellent customer service we have gained another advocate for the Hamilton brand.”
