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.

Versed Automation
5.0 OUT OF 5

I recently had the pleasure of working with Verserd Automation, they supplied and installed Lutron lighting and a cinema room. The team was incredibly knowledgeable and professional, ensuring that every aspect of the installation was seamless. The lighting system has transformed the ambience of our home, I couldn’t be happier with the service and products offered. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to elevate their home.


I am over the moon that the Starlink internet system was completed in time for Christmas, as we had visitors coming and no internet coverage. Living in the outskirts of Llandudno, we were only able to achieve 8mbps. However, thanks to Barry’s recommendation and the team at Versed Automation, we are now getting 280mbps throughout the whole house. Everyone’s happy!


They installed 13 Unifi CCTV cameras, smart floodlights, and set up a Unifi network which included 5 wireless access points, with great WiFi coverage even in our garden now. Yamen went above and beyond by recommending, supplying and installing a fully integrated home automation system. The URC system is amazing and would highly recommend Versed automation 5 stars.

We inherited a “smart house” from previous owners, which stopped working a few days after we moved in. Versedautomation was brilliant at sorting everything out, in spite of having to work on someone else’s preinstalled system, offered very effective solutions, listened to all our requests and even sorted out what Sky engineers couldn’t do. Thank you!

Solid planning and spec and seamless execution and snagging. Great service all round

Versed were great. I had recently moved into a property with speakers throughout, no amps and unlabelled wires left by the previous owner, as well as a Unify wifi network that I didnt have full control of, as well as a few other tech things i was struggling with. Tried a few other companies who were totally uninterested in helping. Versed were more than happy. Yamen came round and was super helpful, working out what all the wiring was, showing me how everything worked. Particularly pleased with their cost effective solution to sourcing amps, getting the right ones for each room (bedroom vs basement cinema room) rather than just suggesting the most expensive for all. Really personal service, able to whatsapp and just generally very helpful for me who is not great at this stuff! Even popped back when I was struggling with one of the rooms. All working great, couldnt recommend more highly. Will be using them im sure when I want to upgrade anything! Thanks Yamen and team.


Good people they put in a surround system and bass shaker and very happy with it nice company

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.


Technology Enthusiasts who always tried to impress and surprise me throughout our Smart home installation and I must say that the end finish is superb and Samuel and Team worked tirelessly to get my project completed on schedule.
