Total Control URC Home Automation Installation In Oxford


A smarter home property installation

A 9-bedroom property in Oxford needed an upgrade to accommodate the family’s lifestyle and give them a convenience factor in managing all their devices in one place at their holiday home. As our client also worked from this property while he was away, he was in need of a bespoke Wi-Fi system to help him connect to his work team at all times. The upgrade was also to allow his family to enjoy entertainment without interruption.

We decided that this property required an URC home Automation system that was integrated with Rako lighting, Heatmizer, Ubiquiti Access Points and Hikvision 4k CCTV to keep it secure. It also needed a Door Bird door entry system to alert the family to anyone who wanted home access.

Essentially, the home needed security, but it ultimately had major problems in regards to its access to Wi-Fi and the internet.

The Challenge

A vacant property in need of an update

Homes in Oxford are very comfortable to live in. They tend to have all of the things a family needs to stay in them and feel safe and secure. However, our challenge came from the fact this building was not a holiday home. Instead, it was vacant for most of the year. After undertaking a risk assessment, we came to a conclusion that the best course of action was tocut and chase the walls in order to bury the cables and get the required network points to specified locations.

Project Highlights

  • Rako Lighting In The Outdoor Gazebo
  • 10 Ubiquiti Access Points
  • URC Lighting Control
  • URC Access Control System
  • Nest Smart Heating
  • 4k HikVision CCTV
  • 31 cat6e cable data points
  • Sonos Surround Sound
  • Pyronix Intruder Alarm
  • Fail Safe Dual Internet Line
  • Door Entry via Mobile App
  • TV/AV Distribution

The Solution

Once the cut and chase of the walls was complete, it was simpler for our team to fully complete the installation. With the commission finalised, we built a Smart Entertainment and Wi-Fi system through a fail-safe dual internet line. We were even able to have the Wi-Fi extend out to the gazebo for the family to enjoy spending time together whilst accessing their entertainment systems. To add a little ambiance to the gazebo, Rako smart lights were included in the installation alongside a TV and sound system that could be controlled through a mobile phone or tablet.

We had been having WiFi issues, Luke could not have been more helpful in sorting them out and making sure that everything was working fully before leaving, many thanks


So I am very late on this review (sorry time flys when you are a new dad) - but a few months back Versedautomation installed 13 Unifi CCTV cameras, smart flood light and setup a Unifi network with 5 wireless access points and multiple switches for me in Orpington. They have done a brilliant job, even managing to get hold of the equipment somehow when everyone was out of stock! The system is still running flawlessly, the cables are all well managed and hidden away (even tidied some of my own bad cable management). We now have great WiFi in the garden when working from home, my cars that get updates over WiFi now finally have a perfect signal and actually get updates and the cameras give great piece of mind.

My aunt tasked me to find a credible company to design, install and intergrate her Smart home, which was at first a scary feeling but after one call and a consultation visit with Versed automation Ltd I quickly realised the other companies who came out were no match to their expertise and enthusiasm. After a 12 week build, my aunt has finally been able to move back into her home and is ecstatic with her ability to set mood lighting, close blinds from her phone and watch what she wants where she wants...amazing work guys and will definitely recommend!


Home Automation Installation completely surpassed all my expectations. It was a big investment for our family but from the beginning they were very professional with planning, design and support. There were no hidden charges and they have a super team. Their staff were always friendly and available but Yemen, who was responsible for all the fittings was brilliant. You can probably tell I am incredibly happy with the end result and have recommended their services to a family member already.
