A property connected with smart technology.
The owners of this house in Essex were looking for a smart home solution to provide a sense of convenience and luxury that would flow through each room of their home. The Clarke team were called in to assess the house and create a bespoke solution to extend throughout the property and elevate the family’s enjoyment of their home to new heights. As movie enthusiasts, implementing a high-level home entertainment experience within the design was a priority for the family, and plans would include a custom home cinema repurposing the existing garage space.
Smart home solution
A unique home requires a unique solution
Having assessed the property and discussed the owners’ specific needs, the Clarke Infinity experts would carefully consider the right kit and software to seamlessly connect lighting, blinds, security and AV from central control points – giving a sense of ease and efficiency to all facets of the home without generating unnecessary clutter to achieve the desired minimalistic aesthetic of the property. The luxurious, hassle-free feel would extend into the new cinema room to deliver an immersive experience of a night at the movies with the added comforts of home.
Home life is more relaxing with our whole property connected as a smart home. Having control of simple things like lights and blinds, as well as being able to toggle to security cameras or fill the room with music just tapping the control panels, gives us more space to really enjoy our time together at home. Plus we’re loving rewatching our BluRay collection in the cinema room. Thank you to the Clarke Infinity team!

The experience to create the perfect environment
For an interconnected, bespoke approach to smart control throughout the property, the team recommended Control4, connecting lighting, AV capabilities, CCTV view and blinds via discreet central touchscreen control panels in the walls. Fully compatible QMotion blinds were installed in each room providing privacy from neighbouring properties, insulation in colder months, and protecting furnishing and screens from from sunlight glare with one smooth, silent adjustment.
The living area comprises a sleek Samsung ATC screen installed alongside a pair of Monitor Audio speakers discreetly hidden within fabric walls, as a perfect everyday entertainment solution for fantastic audio with a sleek minimalist look. Beneath, a Sony LED TV behind Wolf Cinema glass, the Clarke Infinity team programmed a roaring fire display, which adds an extra touch of unique design magic and cosy sense of home all year round.
The garage was transformed, into a film-lover’s haven, with acoustic wall treatments providing a 0.4 second reverb time for incredible sound alongside stunning visuals from the new Sony 4K SXRD projector. Portable touch screen controls from Control4 allow a switch between TV, BluRay and gaming, adjusting the audio and more with just a swipe of a finger from sumptuous, cushioned seating. Luxury, comfort, convenience and entertainment combined at the highest level.
