Home Automation & Integration

We can provide whole home automation, from the time you wake up in the morning, to when you go to sleep at night – as well as in between.

Multi Room Audio Integration

There aren’t many better feelings in the world than getting home after a long day and taking off your shoes – but there is that moment you are able to turn on your favourite music and let the rhythm take over your worries

We take sound very seriously and know how important it is to have a sound system that goes with personal requirements – no matter how big or small the system.  Tony prides himself upon keeping as up-to-date with the latest deals and products within the Audio Visual world. This ensures you get the best quality speakers and AMPs we can find.

If you have young children or teenagers, or if you and your partner have different tastes in music, rooms can be individualised with their own music and video controls. Incorporate audio home automation features whereby when a light is turned on in a room, music starts to play.  By customising a multi-room system in your home, you can give each person access to their own music and movies/TV without affecting everyone else.  Easy to use keypads or a universal remote for smart control – keypads mounted discreetly on the wall or a wireless universal remote can be used to easily manage your multi-room AV.  New technology is enabling touchscreen devices like your iPad and iPhone can be used to find and play music and videos stored elsewhere in the house.

Create a gaming room – with the introduction of interactive consoles like Wii, and internet access enabling gaming online like with X-Box Live, it makes sense to create a gaming room! A gaming room can be a dedicated room set up like a gaming parlour, or it can be integrated into a room that is also used for other purposes.

Security & Surveillance

Keep your home, and the important things in it, safe and secure at all times. Check in on the locks, cameras, and garage doors from across the street or across the globe. Receive alerts when someone enters the house. Set lights to automatically come on at dusk so you’ll never have to approach a dark house again. Intelligent security solutions put peace of mind at your fingertips so you can trust that all is safe and sound.

With home automation you can integrate your home security to have access through the same app as your home automation allowing you access to your alarm system and camera surveillance anywhere in the world you have an internet connection.

Alarms & Security

Our alarm systems are effective deterrents to burglars, and offer 24/7 protection to help you avoid the emotional trauma of being a victim.


Custom designed CCTV for your security needs – From a four camera, one recorder and single monitor surveillance system to the most complex custom designed, externally monitored security system, Modeliving will work with your requirements and budget to find a CCTV system that delivers what you need to ensure a secure home or business.

Access Control

Access control allows you to effectively manage who is on your property and where they can gain entry to. By the use of a variety of methods including key card security systems like swipe cards and proximity cards, voice or keypad activated access, and biometric security systems, you can control people’s access to and from any area, building or room.


Intercom systems allow you to restrict entry to and exit from particular access points to grounds or a building. Residential intercom systems allow you to verify who wants to gain entry through either gates or your front door before activating access electronically.

Automatic Gates

As well as providing easy control of access to your property, automatic gates can be monitored as part of your home security system with the use of CCTV surveillance cameras and having the gate alarmed to prevent unauthorised access.

Home theatre & audio

Audio Visual and Home Automation forms part of the process when you are considering a renovation or new build home. There are a lot of aspects to consider and to that extent we will simplify the process by managing the Audio Visual and Home Automation part of the process for you. With a bespoke plan, meeting not only your needs but also fit your budget.

It’s not a switch or a bulb. Ambience is to create the character and atmosphere of a place.

Smart lighting offers multiple configurations to create an ambience across the entire house or in just a few selected spaces, including finishes to suit any budget. Regardless if you want to do an entire fit out in one go or start small and add more later, smart lighting will be tailored to fit your needs and provide options for every home.

Hands free illumination

With no contact required, your home will know when you arrive in the darkness of night and set your lights to lead the way. You will never need to arrive home to a dark house again. Motion sensors offer a solution to contactless illumination for the restroom, kitchen and hallways. Voice activation can light the way when your hands are full or alternatively you by means of voice activation, and from the comfort of your bed, instruct every fixture to turn off.

One single button

Keypads feature customised buttons which grants the control over multiple functions – from movies, music, locks, thermostats, garage doors, front doors, internet. Activate or deactivate multiple fixtures, rooms or the entire house with one single instruction as you head out the door on your way out. No longer will it be required to travel room by room to ensure the lights are switched off and fixtures are turned off.

voice control

Having hands free access over voice control with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant can be an absolute life changing solution to some households, whether it be you aren’t able to access certain parts of your house due to a disability or your a busy body with your hands full imagine being able to turn on the lights with your voice as you enter your house with hands full of groceries or perhaps your doing the dished and want to change the song on spotify. With voice control you can do so many things hands free, giving you back time you didn’t realise you were spending without voice control.

Total control – total freedom
