Swiss Cottage

This smart home in Swiss Cottage underwent a complete rebuild including the digging out of the basement, a project which took over 5 years to complete including the design. We were brought in to design and install the home automation for this incredible property and we were involved in the project right from the design phase to ensure all smart home solutions throughout the house would work together seamlessly.

The technology:

The entire house is controlled by Crestron with Lutron lighting control and keypads

The basement is beautiful space with a bar, pool table, and a subtle home cinema which hides away when not in use. A JVC projector drops out of the ceiling in a Future Automation projector lift and a Vutec Lectric 2 countersunk projector screen drops out of the ceiling at the touch of a button. For sound there are flush in-wall Bowers & Wilkins LCR7’s with a Bowers and Wilkins PV1 subwoofer.

On the basement level there is also a large pool which has a steam room, a Crestron controlled waterfall feature, a bar area with 65″ Panasonic TV and Automated doors which require keypad code for entry which ensures children do not use the pool unattended. These doors also have an emergency open function in case of emergency in the pool which sounds an alarm throughout the house and activates all of the Crestron panels to displays the camera in the pool.

The pool in the basement this smart home in Swiss Cottage is accompanied by a gym which has a TV and ceiling speakers.

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.
