Creative Family Abode Kent

We were tasked with providing a smart home solution to a new ground floor extension at this fun-filled family home in Kent.

Please note. Some images have been changed to protect the anonymity of the property owners and their family. Occasionally stock imagery has been used to do this. Full project photos, including before and after photos are always available on request and with the owners permission.


The owner of this family home in Kent was adding a large extension during refurbishment of the ground floor and wanted to add some smart home systems for without disturbing the rest of the house.

We added a partial Rako-based smart lighting system to provide the family with custom controls in their new extension area. We also added automated shading to their large glass facade.

Crestron Home Automation works hand in hand with the Rako lighting system to provide robust control over the various smart components of the extension, encompassing media control, lighting, shading, HVAC, access and security. A myriad of handheld remotes and top-line touchscreens work throughout the extension as the go-to point of control.

Media is distributed to several screens in 4K via a conventional Matrix and audio distributed to four independently controllable zones.

We also installed a central data network backbone with faultless wired and wireless access. This was located within the new extension, but powerful wireless solutions provided full coverage across the home.

We installed five top of the range 4K Axis security cameras with light storage to provide overwatch of the property.

This project successfully delivered a pseudo smart home installation with very minimal impact on the areas not being refurbished.
