Customer Reference

“For our latest series of The Block we had the bold idea to create a home of the future. This required an enormous amount of planning and we turned to Paul Detering and his team from Smart Automation Systems to work alongside us to realise our dream. They came into the project with great creativity and energy and worked around the clock to deliver everything from voice control to facial recognition. They completely exceeded our expectations and created a home which captured the imagination of our contestants and the entire audience. We simply could not have done it with them.”
