We use lighting and shade technology to give you the perfect ambience in your home day or night. We have been controlling light technology since the advent of the dimmer switch; the next progression is harnessing the power of natural light. Daylight has a quality that we respond to emotionally.

Colours read true, finishes reveal their texture, and an uplifting quality pervades any room bathed in daylight. As we become more conscious of our footprint on this planet, we realise that making the most of daylight in our homes simply makes sense.

Utilising daylight reduces our need for electric light, and saves energy. Shading systems provide precision control of daylight.

From opening the blinds and softly lighting the bedroom when you wake to lighting the way to the garage and on through to the kitchen when you arrive home after a long day, integrated lighting and shade technology can enhance your home life in so many ways.

No more arriving back to a dark house or drawing all the curtains every evening, our systems make your life easier and your home work harder.

We pre-program your system so you can set the scene for whatever you are doing with ease. Transform your room to the perfect lighting for a party by pressing a single button engraved ‘entertaining’ or dim the lights and close out the world for a warm and cosy night in.

Save energy and time by ensuring every light is put out with one touch.


Shading systems diffuse light and prevent glare from distorting a computer or television screen. They are also key to protecting furniture, fine art, rugs, and even wood surfaces from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

Stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter by using shading systems to deflect or harness solar heat.


Managing daylight is not restricted to a single wall station in your home. Shading systems can be controlled using your choice of keypads, remote controls, smart phones, tablets and voice commands, not to mention setting an astronomic time clock for automatic adjustment of shades.

Utilise a whole-home shading system for simultaneous control of all shades.

By setting a predetermined scene for ‘away’, simply select this option when leaving to close all shades and restrict the view inside your home.

A ‘mockupancy’ system can have lights turning on and off, blinds raising and lowering and music playing at intervals to create the illusion of occupancy.


Through considered design, specification and installation, lighting and intelligent shading can bring so much to any home.
