With our dedicated team alongside you, we can help you plan and design your new home or renovation with technology in mind! Working with CAD software, we will ensure that all other tradespeople on site are clear on what you want to achieve, and can help you at all stages to make this happen without compromising on your original vision.


Our dedicated showroom, based in Ipswich, is there to help you visualise how the technology can work in your home or business. This way you can experience the technology yourself before making your final decisions. Our showroom features options for almost all aspects of what we can do to best help you make the right choice first time. We invite all prospective customers to visit the showroom as early as possible as part of our initial quotation process.


Our quotation process is about getting it right for you. We work alongside you, identifying the best ways to exceed your own ambitions for your home, as well as suggesting any additional considerations and ideas that will benefit you along your smart journey. We outline all options clearly, and break them down by price so that you can confidently make decisions on your latest projects.

Installation Options

From first fix cabling, all the way through to the second fix, final fitting and handover, we are there to do as much or as little as you need us to. We are happy and able to work alongside all trades, and have the relevant qualified personnel to be able to do so. Plus we also provide consistent feedback throughout all stages of the installation to ensure everyone is happy with where the progress is being made.

Project Managing & After Sales

Throughout your work with us, we will assist and advise on additional possibilities for automation and technology on your project. This is especially important when goods have the potential to be included in our automation systems. With Hughes’ customer service expertise of almost 100 years of trading, you can be rest assured that you are working with experts in customer service.

Maintenance & Future Work

The best thing about our systems is that they are able to be adapted and expanded upon in the future with ease, ensuring that you are not spending money that inhibits your plans in the future, whatever life may throw at you. We can arrange support packages for aftersales service to also ensure you have us on call for your needs.
