Skopik provided an all-in-one Smart Home solution for this Ponsonby home, where pre-wiring, hardware installation and future-proofing was key. Our client had requested a simple-to-use, yet comprehensive system, including Audio-Visual, CCTV, Access Control, Security and Wireless.

Working in collaboration with our client, Skopik designed and implemented a complete Smart Home solution that took into account the current home setup, as well as allowing flexibility for future AV requirements.

A 2-stage approached was conceived during the planning process of the project. Stage 1 was focussed on pre-wiring existing and yet to be installed systems for IT, AV and Security. Stage 2 focussed on the hardware installation.

This 2-stage approach resulted in a comprehensive solution that allows our client to control all aspects of their home via one of the in-wall touchscreens, or mobile devices while out and about.
