Ponsonby Smart Home

An all-in-one Solution

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.

New technologies and artificial intelligence may soon be making their way to your own home. These upgrades are not just for the rich, but for anyone who wants them.
