“Not only have Ultamation created an intuitive, fluid, user interface, they have also sprinkled some Ultamation magic into the user experience too … firmly setting an Ultamation system apart from anything else available in the market. We were commissioned by the winning integration companies (unfortunately many of the best projects are covered under non-disclosure which prevents us from being able to shout about them), but are very proud to have been partially responsible for the wins on two prestigious and high-profile projects. “In the most hotly contested of the nine categories, Ultamation's entry beat off the competition on the grounds of technical excellence married with intuitive and "funky" design.”

 

These awards reinforce our position in the Custom Installation industry, and to provide further weight Ultamation was established from roots in formal Computer Science, which means that we do the usual things really well and excel in the clever things.

We have created a unique framework which our systems are built around, which means that you have access to some great features, all part of our standard package, and have been user tested and are 'feature rich'; meaning you get an enhanced experience.  Of course, we can then customise from there, giving you the best of both worlds in reliability and bespoke design.

To give just a few examples:

  • Each room has a configurable sleep function. Start watching TV and set the sleep timer.  One minute before it expires, the lights and volume will very slowly ramp down and then switch the room off at the last second to avoid waking you up.
  • Never settle for the tinny sound of modern TVs. Use our 'Alternative Audio' option (where the system supports it) to switch the audio to HiFi amplification for the optimal media experience.
  • Based on user interface and user, different room lists can be presented to whoever is using the interface.

We love the challenge of programming and controlling equipment that others shy away from.  It also means that we lead the pack; we are constantly developing software to improve our products, be more intuitive to use and keep up with the current technology trends in usability and design.  Our award winning portfolio, and our team being headed by a Crestron Gold Master Programmer, demonstrates that we can deliver the perfect synthesis of lifestyle, design and technology for your family and home.

Not all systems are designed and built equally so make sure that you get the best by using Ultamation.
