From the beginning the team at Electronic Living and their capabilities were impressive. We remember preparing for our initial meeting only being interested in home network and security, however, after spending time at the showroom we were blown away. We had no idea before seeing the showroom in person how well the technology could make life easier, while being almost entirely concealed. After our initial meeting, we walked away wanting the full experience.

In a new build we had the opportunity to involve the Electronic Living team throughout the planning and the build. The team were extremely well organised, worked well with both our architect and builder, and have been a pleasure to deal with throughout our experience. The quality of work, right down to the degree of painstaking documentation and systematic organisation of even the wiring behind the electronic equipment rack has been impressive.

The after-sales service has been exceptional, with the team being available whenever we’ve needed to contact them. Over time as we’ve lived in the house, we’ve been able to add to the customisation, incorporating extra efficiencies or new features as we’ve gone along. Despite the large amount of technology in the home, it is extremely intuitive and easy to use – guests and others in our home have not had any difficulty in operating any of the systems. After now having lived in our home for almost a year, we continue to enjoy and appreciate the smart home functions every day.
