This beautiful and smart home in Highgate, London is home to successful author of many books and a TV producer who decided to go against the usual clean modern feel and adopt a more rustic and reclaimed feel with lots of colour.

They were both keen to have high quality smart audio distributed around the whole home with access to online media such as Napster and Spotify, and required full fire and smart home security systems, TV’s in the key rooms, and telephony systems.

Some of the technology installed into this smart home in Highgate includes: Control4 7′ touch panels throughout the house with door entry functions, Control4 SR250 remotes in key rooms, Control4 intercom, keypad access to the driveway gate, Fike fire detection, Texecom intruder detection, hidden window vibration detection, Panasonic TV’s throughout the house, iPod docks throughout the house, HD distribution, Sonos, Bowers & Wilkins CM5 ceiling speakers through the the house, Bowers & Wilkins in-wall speakers in the snug room, local sources such as Blu-ray players throughout the house, telephone system throughout the house with Gigaset Cordless phones and SNOM telephones, and the home has been future-proofed with fibre optic cabling.

The interior of this smart home in Highgate was done by Retrouvious interior design and they have created a wonderful place to be with lots of unusual and retro items which make this home unique.

At MDfx, we believe that a hands-on approach is the best way to gain a greater understanding of the systems we provide. We achieve this by giving our home automation installation and management teams their own personal control systems, which enables them to experience and understand them from the user’s perspective. We also regularly participate in industry and supplier training.


Having established ourselves as one of the most efficient and bespoke smart home installation companies the UK, we have been recognised for our work, winning awards for our high standards and the creativity of our services. Most recently, we won the Control4 awards at the Integrated Systems Exhibitions (ISE) in Amsterdam, where we were one of the only AV dealers in Europe to walk away with more than one award.

& Care

We design and install all of our systems to operate with efficiency, without fault, and in a way that makes them easy to use and understand. With that said, we do host training sessions to ensure that our clients get the best out of their system and are able to familiarise themselves with all of its functions.
