Having just renovated our home, we wanted to make sure the technology was also up to scratch. The Electronic Living team helped us design a system to do just that. Everything from the selection of equipment to the installation ran so smoothly. The whole team were always on the same page and everyone did what they had to do in a very polite, efficient manner. We haven’t even had to call them back in as we haven’t had any problems which is rare when setting up such a big system. I could not recommend Damian and his team highly enough!

Working with Electronic Living team was amazing! They worked with us to create a system that is reliable, runs seamlessly and has added value to our property. It is so nice living in a home where all the technology is so easy to use. We travelled overseas last year and had my sister housesitting for us. She picked up the iPad and knew how to control everything without having to ask us. I highly recommend Electronic Living to everyone.

Just had my apartment done at Peppers Soul. Everything absolutely perfect and seamless. The team know what they are doing. It’s all first class!
Don’t let technology scare you. This team makes it fool proof - And Gary their technician... He’s a genius and can sort anything out.

The ‘V House’ represents one of our best examples of successful collaboration with design and services integration. The house was wholly conceived as a singular idea that needed to be executed in a very precise way, given the unforgiving nature of the architecture and materials. Working with Electronic Living on many projects previously gave us the confidence and insight into what they were capable of adding to the V House – their involvement, from the concept stage through to completion, afforded us the opportunity to achieve the most seamless possible and reliable automated outcome for our clients. The results speak for themselves, with the house enjoying unparalleled functionality and faultless technology integration, all perfectly executed and simply delivered. The contribution that Electronic Living provide continues to be a wonderful value-add for our clients and it is always a pleasure to work alongside them in every aspect of the projects – from design and documentation to construction and delivery. Their professionalism, generosity and client-focus aligns very much with our own value system and we look forward to offering our clients the benefits of smart home integration through Electronic Living in the future.

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.

Our first visit to Electronic Living opened our eyes to the possibility of having a smart home. Everything was explained very clearly so we understood all the options available to us, and were able to make decisions and choices that suited our needs, lifestyle and budget. It is wonderful to live in a home where all the thinking has already been done, and everything is integrated and operates seamlessly and reliably.
Working with the Electronic Living team was a great experience, they collaborated with us and our team and created a design that has added such value to our home and lifestyle. The ongoing support has also been brilliant. Whenever we have any minor issues, or want anything changed or updated, it is done quickly and efficiently.
We would highly recommend their services and products to anyone wanting to enhance their home.

I do not normally write reviews, though I felt these guys deserved it.
Having just built a new home, we were keen to make our entertainment as easy as possible to use. Damian and the team went above and beyond to ensure our every need was met. Damian spent the time with us to ensure we had the right equipment supplied and most importantly the right configuration. The installation process was an absolute dream, with that high level of customer service following right through to the end of the job.
I could not recommend the guys highly enough. Thank you so much guys! (And Gary sorry about having the Rack location in the most difficult position, and thank you for not complaining once about it!....to me anyway)
Ben Steel, Albion
We built a new home which is purpose built for our disabled daughter, in doing so we decided to future proof & smart wire the home as well as add some family entertainment.
We had Electronic Living do the fit out for us.
Right from the get go with the initial consultation with Damian to discuss ideas, he put forth a wish list which was then tailored to needs & budget. A lot of chopping & changing on our behalf which was never a problem or hassle for him.
The installation process with the project manager & technicians was seamless, they are all very friendly, polite, very helpful no matter the hour, always cleaned up after themselves & produced extremely high quality & visually neat work.
The whole team for that matter from Damian through to the admin team, project manager & technicians always friendly, polite & hassle free.
These guys are second to none, not only do they provide extremely high quality workmanship & products which simplify & make things easy to use, but the customer satisfaction & interests are at the forefront of everything they do. Nothing but accommodating & always on hand to help no matter the request, even after the job is complete!
We can’t thank or recommend them enough for their professionalism, effort, generosity (especially with our daughter) & time put into the house project & fit out. We are over the moon with the outcome & finished product!
Tyrone Byrnes, Murrumba Downs
Hi Damian, I want to let you know how appreciative we are, once again, for the friendly professionalism of your team. Neil undertook the installation with a minimum of fuss, the job is neat and clean and everything works as promised. Thank you!
Please send me a few business cards as I have had enquiries as to how to get an operator that actually knows what they are doing – and does it!
Rod Pilbeam, Clayfield
We engaged Damian and the Electronic Living team to help us design, procure and install our home entertainment system and to connect it with our wireless network, gaming and music systems. The team came up with an elegant, affordable design and implemented the solution quickly and professionally. Polite, knowledgeable and great post-sales support.
Damian and the team at Electronic LIving assisted me with both my residential and commercial AV requirements. The results are nothing short of suberb. Professional staff, expert installation and design and generally great to deal with. Highly recommended, I use no one else.
Damian and his team at Electronic Living have been sorting out and setting up our very complicated technical issues in a number of our apartments. They have been fabulous to deal with, very reliable, efficient and thorough. A great team.

Best thing I have ever done about my house is making it a smart home by Electronic Living. I will recommend them to everyone not only because they are good at what they do but also for their amazing service...
Shamsul Muqarrabin, Fig Tree Pocket
We first had the pleasure of dealing with Electronic Living back in 2006 when we installed a home theatre room , which also included some lighting and smart home control. The installation and after sales services was faultless and the entire team were always a pleasure to deal with. Six years later we designed our dream home and sought quotations for a fully automated smart home with all the bells & whistles.
Being way over budget already on the new house build, due to price we unfortunately decided to award the project to another company who offered a cheaper solution in an attempt to save some money. That decision proved to be a huge mistake !!!
After moving into our new home, we had technicians visit at least 2-3 days per week for nearly six months trying to sort out the systems and get it working the way it should have been in the first place. Not satisfied at all with the outcome, we approached Electronic Living with our tails between our legs and humbly asked for their intervention.
The team at Electronic Living were amazing, they could have refused to get involved given the circumstances but thankfully to their credit they didn’t & genuinely were only interested in resolving the matter for us promptly. All of our ongoing problems caused by the other company were resolved by Electronic Living in a very short period of time, and what was a very unreliable system from the beginning has now since their involvement been operating flawlessly.
Overall costs in rectifying the systems installed by the other contractor has well exceeded the original quotation from Electronic Living, and we should have saved the time, stress & cost by using them in the first place. Furthermore since their intervention we have discovered that what we initially thought we were getting as an “apples for apples” solution was indeed not the case hence the reason it initially presented as a cheaper alternative in the beginning.
Thank you to Damian & the entire team at Electronic Living. As a fellow business owner I really appreciate the exceptional level of service provided & your honest & ethical approach to assisting our family. Hindsight has provided us the opportunity to reveal the real value in your services. Given the circumstances you could have either not intervened at all or could have easily spoke poorly of your competitor but to your credit you didn’t & it was clear to us from the outset that you were only focused on solving our situation promptly & professionally. We would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending you & your team for any size project, and look forward to continuing to refer your services wherever we possibly can in the future.

My husband and I were fortunate to meet Damian Cavanagh in 1998 at a Home Show in Brisbane. We were renovating and needed to fix some issues with our existing audio-visual equipment that we had purchased elsewhere. Damian and his team, both utilizing the equipment we had, and upgrading things we needed gave us the most fabulous system that was efficient, user-friendly and cost efficient.
Damian was always friendly and available in the event of any trouble-shooting so it was without reservation that we consulted him when we built our new home in 2003. Damian coordinated our entire audio-visual, telephone and computer network requirements always advising the best possible and cost effective solution for our needs. Since 1998 Damian and his team have unfailingly provided support and backup whenever it was needed. I have no hesitation in recommending Damian and his team to anyone.
When we bought our new home last year my husband and I were very keen to install a plasma TV. We were novices in this field having never owned one before and with so many ways to go about this (buy and install yourselves, big chain stores who install, smaller companies) we were unsure as to which would be the best way to go. We had friends who had used the service of Damian and the crew at Electronic Living and they recommended them wholeheartedly and without hesitation. Particularly they recommended the “people” not just the “product”.
So we rang Damian and from the very beginning found him to be accommodating to our every request – not only was he happy to come late afternoon so that my husband was home but he was happy to come back and go through things again when we had areas we were unclear on. Although I was still unsure of a few things I went with Damian’s suggestions as he is the expert and certainly this was the right decision. We now have the system installed and working wonderfully. Damian’s suggestion of a SONOS audio system (which we had never heard of) was fantastic and has been the source of much enjoyment when we entertain. The children enjoy having the Wii games linked within the system seamlessly and available easily (when Mum allows!) We have a number of wall mounted TVs and a large amount of cabling that was done to accommodate the system and the men who installed it worked quietly and with minimal disruption to the house. They always tidied up at the end of the day and they were so very pleasant to have about the house. In fact the children were so fond of them that they often ask “When will …. come back?” and when we see the Electronic Living truck out and about they say “Look there is …’s truck!” Such was the caliber of Damian’s staff that they would make the time to listen and answer the inquisitive questions that came their way.
Finally I must make comment on the after-service of Damian and his team. They have a 24 hour on-call member of staff who we have had to use on occasion when… we had our first blackout after the system was installed and needed to reboot, we had a memory blank in how to run something etc…. They are available, pleasant and were able to solve the problem on the spot. I cannot recommend them highly enough and would not hesitate in suggesting you use Electronic Living for your entertainment needs.
We used Electronic Living in connection with a major home extension project. In addition to providing advice on the myriad of options available for the delivery of TV, sound and IT throughout our home culminating in a design spec which suited our requirements, EL also sourced and installed all hardware and components at a competitive price. Dealing on a day to day basis with tradesmen can be challenging but never with EL. All members of EL's team are courteous, considerate and thoroughly professional. And when they say they stand behind their workmanship and the products they recommend - believe them. Queries are responded to promptly (often within minutes) regardless of the time of day (including nights and weekends). I would have no hesitation in recommending Electronic Living to anyone.

This will serve to confirm that I have known and used the services of Damian Cavanagh, presently trading as “Electronic Living”, for the past seven years.
During this time Damian has completed three major installations for me together with other ancillary work and, I am pleased to confirm that on every occasion the work was completed on time and on budget.
The advice provided was professional and factual and the installations were to my entire satisfaction.
It is without hesitation that I thoroughly recommend Damian and Electronic Living to anyone wanting to achieve an outstanding outcome in visual / audio presentation.
We had battled over the years with the ever changing technology in Sound, TV, DVD, Recorders etc and always sensed our systems were dysfunctional. We could never be sure they were working to optimum performance, when items had to be replaced, how to install/choose them, and how to match them. Then we met Damian at Electronic Living.
They knew which new products were reputable, which were obsolete and how they would interact with each other (old with new) and their crowning achievement, after hiding the clutter of ugly boxes and wires so that our room only housed the speakers and screen (on the wall), was to dispense with six remotes and replace them with one, which includes Foxtel IQ2.
We could then all effortlessly use this intelligent Remote, after two minutes of instruction, from anywhere in the house ie especially good for sound level control for the surround sound equipment.
If you can relate to this, we could not recommend Electronic Living and their friendly and competent staff more highly.
