Smart home control concept. Room interior with sofa, table and l

A smart home provides a way to interact with devices within the home. It can provide information about and control over those devices.

It doesn’t all have to be installed from the outset but can be added to as time and your requirements change. This allows you to add security systems, heating and lighting systems and control over audio visual equipment as you require by changing appliances and accessories with ‘smart’ versions of the same.

We can help with choosing these devices and integrating them to help you get the most from your investment.

There are currently four major smart ecosystems:

  1. Google Home
  2. Amazon Alexa
  3. Apple HomeKit
  4. Works with Nest

So how do you choose which is going to work best for you ?

New Installations

You’ve chosen and ordered the equipment you want – and now it has arrived. What next?

We provide an installation service to ensure that your systems are properly set up and functioning as they should.

Installing printers, scanners, digital cameras, speaker systems, and just about anything that can be connected to a computer, including a TV, game station or DVD player. These ‘peripherals’ depend on software drivers that can be tricky to install and configure. Troubleshooting an install can be difficult, as can understanding how to interact with the device once you’ve attached it. Manuals are not always as easy to follow as their authors would have you believe!

We can visit you, sort out any problems you may have and provide the training necessary for you to be able to use your new device with confidence and ease.


Some infections are just annoying – but others can be potentially ruinous. It is vital that you protect yourself against them. There are many anti-virus and anti-spyware programmes on the market. We can assist in selecting the right one for you, as well as installing it properly and making sure that your protection is regularly updated.

The hackers, of course, are constantly dreaming up new ways to get round anti-virus programmes. If you do find you’ve been infected, you should shut down your computer to prevent the virus spreading and only turn it back on again when you are ready to perform a virus cleaning operation.

Hackers operate by scanning the Internet for connected PCs with open ‘ports’ through which they can enter your computer. To stop them, you need a personal firewall. This monitors all your open ports and warns you when a programme is trying to access one of them via the internet.

We can supply and fit a firewall for you and then show you how to use the software correctly and interpret any error messages that appear.


These days more and more of our lives are being stored on our hard drives. It is devastating when that hard disk fails or your system suffers a fatal crash and you can no longer see your files.

If you don’t have a backup of this information all may not be lost! It is a common mistake to assume that your data is gone forever. We can retrieve documents, emails, pictures, video, music and other files from media that have failed. We can also retrieve files that have been deleted from your computer, even if the hard drive has been reformatted.
