New Year, New Plans..

With most businesses and people back to work this week, we all find ourselves with a blank canvas to begin the year with. A whole new set of resolutions and aspirations for the New Year ahead.

Some folks are out pounding the pavements, having purged the fridge and cupboards of all edible temptations, in the hope of shedding a little poundage gained over the festive season!

Some of us are planning our summer holidays – something to look forward to and work towards. Others are making plans for a new job in 2017. Or maybe even a new car?!


A lot of the people we are talking to this week are full of anticipation as they finalise their plans for their dream home. With this in mind I thought it would be a good time to reflect on smart home technology and to give you a gentle reminder of how important it is while drafting, and crafting, those plans with your architect, not to forget to future-proof your new home.

Maybe you have completed a first draft plan and have yet to finalise the specifications for plumbing, heating and electrics? Forward planning and detailed specification from the infancy of your plan is key to achieving a home that you will live in and enjoy for many years to come.

Make sure your architect has incorporated an integrated control system that will give you all the comfort, convenience and energy saving you will require into the future.

Whether you’re building a new home, or even remodelling your existing home, proper wiring is an essential first phase to installing a home automation system, so that all of your devices can communicate with each other seamlessly. Home automation systems generally function best with structured wiring, which delivers the best network speed, configuration, ability to troubleshoot and consistent signal quality. All very important to ensure the performance and stability of any automation system.

Working from a set of your plans, TechFit can custom design an affordable control system to suit your every need. Whether it is controlling lighting, audio, video, blinds, heating or access control, either independently or through an all in one solution such as Control4, we have the experience to bring your design to completion.

We take pride in everything we do, in keeping our staff fully trained, setting strict standards whilst also developing their skill levels in one of the fastest growing and exciting industries today. We have both the in-house experience and full manufacturer support to enable us to present practical solutions and sound working advice at every stage of our customer’s building project, both now and into the future.
