Cottage comfort in Titchmarsh

In 2016, The Love Family bought an old stone cottage, in the village of Titchmarsh in Northampton.

The family had plans to renovate and extend the house but had no intention of installing an intelligent automation system. In 2016, the client visited the National Self Build and Renovation Show at the NEC in Birmingham, and stumbled across a live demo of Niko Home Control. The installation impressed the clients enormously and was selected shortly after as the number one choice for the cottage.

The clients brief included the implementation of a fully integrated electrical installation with lighting control, heating control, TV distribution and the option to have a multiroom audio system at a later date. It was simple; to re-wire the home and produce an easy to use, energy efficient electrical system, utilising modern integrated controls.

The Love’s electrician carried out the wiring for the project but the team at Niko UK worked with him closely to ensure the smooth installation of Niko Home Control. They also provided all Niko paneling and programming. The team worked closely with a lighting designer to allow for complete flexibility and control over the 70 lights within the house, creating perfect mood lighting throughout.

The Niko products included in the project included Niko Home Control lighting; heating and a touch screen facility, as well as Sonos audio systems.

The client’s favourite features include the ability to control everything through the Niko Home Control App. The app allows the family to control lighting scenes, heating and monitor their energy usage.

What’s more, the family is able to hit a single button on their phone, tablet or Niko control panel on leaving the house turning off all electrical appliances and lighting whilst activating presence simulation, making for a safe and secure home. With two young children, this was something that was especially important for the family.

The installation in Titchmarsh highlights the flexibility of Niko Home Control. Who says old houses can’t have new wiring for the latest technology and control?
