Welcome to FutureHomes.

What about my existing home???

One of the most common questions we get asked is, 'your products, are they only for new homes or when renovating homes?'

A couple of years ago this certainly was the case, however every week we are fitting iPad lighting control systems, whole house audio systems, heating and energy management systems without so much as a blob of paint or filler.

Lets talk about the most popular system for existing home, lighting control. Thanks to new wireless lighting technology, we can fit wireless dimmer or switch modules to your existing light circuits. We then replace your old switch with a new push button to control these lights. We connect our lighting controller to your existing router and boom, your home now has iPad (well any Android or IOS device) control.

Price is nearly always the next question, and no these systems do not cost the earth, in fact they can work out extremely cost effective for what you get in return. The main controller works out at €250 and there is only ever one needed for your home, each light circuit module will cost between €90 and €120 depending on the type of lights (in ceiling spots, lamps etc). Push button switches vary in price also, depending on the finish, we have a variety of finishes from  plain white plastic through to glass in a variety of colours, leather and even wood effect switches, to really add to the rooms decor.

iPad lighting control

So why would you want iPad control over your lights? How about the ability to create individual lighting scenes with various lighting levels to enhance the look and feel of your room. Or how about the ability to create a lighting schedule that can be activated to give the house a lived in look to compliment your security. Easily the most talked about point is the ability to remotely login and control your lights from anywhere in the world.


If you want more information or would like to see the systems in the flesh, feel free to call to our new showroom in Carrigaline, Cork.
