Matt Payne working on Niko Home Control

Salisbury based electrician, Matt Payne, has been chosen to fit smart home technology at a prestigious, London based lighting design company.

The recent project win at Jonathan Coles Lighting Studio is something he plans to build on by increasingly gearing his electrical business towards the design and installation of home automation and smart home systems.

Four years ago, Matt Payne started his own business, Matt Payne Electrical. As primarily a domestic and commercial electrician, Matt decided to expand his offering to include smart home technology. With it’s rise in popularity and the continued need for energy saving solutions, Matt felt it was time to offer the smart home technology to his customers.

“Having smart home technology in your own home is not only fun and convenient to use – especially from your smartphone, but also offers many benefits to customers including real savings in energy costs” says Matt.

The smart home system installed at the studio in Henley-on-Thames is Niko Home Control. The owner of the lighting design business, Jonathan Coles, boasts high profile clients including St-Martins-in-the-Fields Church, Harrods and Prezzo restaurants.

Jonathan was after a high quality and versatile lighting control system at a reasonable price to use as a basis for all his lighting projects. Matt Payne Electrical fitted the Niko Home Control system in the demonstration room at Jonathan’s lighting studio allowing him to showcase the sophisticated capabilities of the system to potential clients.

Following Matt Payne’s electrical installation at the studio, Niko Home Control is now Jonathan’s control system of choice.

We’re delighted to have Niko Home Control installed at our studios. The system’s benefits are considerable but we particularly like the ability to control all lighting from our smartphones. What’s more, we’re able to showcase different mood lighting features and energy saving solutions to our customers.”

Matt Payne Electrical now hopes to roll out the smart home offering to all his customers.

Matt explains, “A Niko system in your home will give you the benefits of increased home comfort, added home security and real energy saving costs at an affordable price.”
