Impressive Family Home—Surrey

During a significant extension and refurbishment of this impressive home, Cyberhomes designed and installed a substantial automation and entertainment system including whole house lighting control (interior and exterior), multi-room audio and video, heating control, security and CCTV systems and a stunning home cinema.

Our involvement

  • Initial design and specification
  • Total system design
  • Cable run out schedules and CAD designs
  • Managing and overseeing the first fix works
  • Second fix installation and equipment supply
  • System programming and commissioning
  • Supply of Cyberhomes operating system manuals
  • After-sales training and support

Key elements

  • Multi-room music system
  • Audio and Video distribution
  • Home Cinema Room
  • Surveillance monitoring
  • Hardwired and wireless networks
  • Lighting and Blinds control
  • Intercom and access control


The complete refurbishment and extension of this impressive property gave the opportunity to totally integrate a range of automation and entertainment systems. A Lutron lighting control system with 157 circuits allows control of every light in the property (both internal and external) from the multiple control devices. Ceiling speakers provide music and audio to be directed to all the rooms and every family member has a dedicated Sonos server of their own music.

There are nine televisions around the house to which can be sent any video stream for the array of sources, including multiple Sky boxes, Blu-Ray discs and a Kaleidescape movie server. The main lounge has a 65” Samsung TV for day-to-day viewing, but at the touch of a button a projector descends from the ceiling, a 250 cm x 140 cm screen gently lowers in front of the Samsung TV, the lights dim and the blinds close…ready for the ultimate home cinema experience. Even the laundry room has a fully connected TV so the family can continue to watch their favourite programmes whatever they are doing.

Secondary rack for network, wifi and CCTV

The dedicated rack room accommodates two full-height Middle Atlantic racks to house all the AV sources, amplifiers, control systems and CCTV recorders; whilst two further low-height racks provide all the network switching, wifi network management and patching for all the cabling throughout the property. Cyberhomes meticulous attention to detail in the design, build and installation of these racks earned us a finalist at the CEDIA 2014 awards for ‘Best Dressed Rack’.

The outdoor space isn’t neglected either, with lighting to enhance the landscaped gardens and swimming pool as well as exterior sound systems to which any of the music sources can be sent to suit the mood of the entertaining. Discrete CCTV cameras ensure every angle of the property can be seen, and a video door entry at the driveway allows advance notice of visitors. All CCTV cameras can be viewed from any of the touch screen control panels throughout the house; as well as on smartphones when away from home.

“Cyberhomes took time to understand how we lived and what we wanted as a family, and came up with ideal suggestions. Our daughters have been elevated to celebrity status among their friends, for having a cinema room and sound system round the pool!

The after-sales service has been outstanding. Cyberhomes monitor our system remotely, and arrive promptly if there’s an issue. They knew there was a problem with the air conditioning in the rack room before we did—even though they hadn’t installed it. We’d definitely recommend Cyberhomes.”
