Residential Services:

  • Home cinema

    Over the years, we have stamped our mark as one of Scotland’s leading providers of bespoke entertainment systems.

    We utilise a range of projectors, projection screens, televisions, sound systems, lighting setups, hidden boxes and cable management methods to produce systems that deliver an unrivalled experience and integrate seamlessly with your home.

    Whatever your vision, ActiVate has the experience, creativity and technical skills to design and install a system that brings your favorite films and music to life.

  • Multi-room audio

    Your home is likely the biggest investment you’ll ever make, so ensure it’s the very best it can be.

    ActiVate provides quality multi-room audio systems tailored to the exact needs of our clients. We utilise discreet decor-matched speakers, the latest digital servers, wireless touch screen controllers and wall mounted control panels to create the system of your dreams.

    Our systems put your media at your fingertips, allowing you to listen to what you want, where you want, when you want.

  • Lighting

    Lighting defines a room. The right lighting can set the mood, accentuate architectural features, guide the way or even deter intruders.

    Using quality lighting and the latest control systems, we design systems that put complete control in the palm of your hand. If you would rather take a hands-off approach, we can use sensors and timers to create a completely automated experience.

  • Home automation

    At ActiVate, we believe in making things simple for our clients. That’s why our home automation systems go much further than a simple universal remote and smart lighting.

    Our systems are built around AMX or Crestron control systems. This provides our clients with complete control over all consumer electronics and all integrated systems.

    Our control systems can be installed on a dedicated touch panel, tablet, phone or computer to provide an incredibly easy-to-use interface. It’s your home so we believe you should have complete control.

  • HDMI distribution

    Modern cinema systems are synonymous with high-definition visuals. For many projects this means addressing the challenges that come with HDMI.

    While HDMI is the standard for interfacing high-definition equipment, it wasn’t developed with multi-room distribution in mind. This led Crestron to develop Digital Media, the first complete video distribution system designed specifically for HDMI. Digital Media allows any mix of AV sources to be distributed to any room from a centralised rack.

    Using Digital Media we can create a system that makes all your media available when you want and where you want it.

  • Data/Telecoms

    Free your home of clutter and move all of your content onto a dedicated server. ActiVate supplies a variety of storage option to suit any budget and can accommodate all modern audio and video formats.

    Enjoy your Blu-ray film collection with the latest Dolby TrueHD surround sound audio or update your standard definition DVDs with automatic intelligent scaling. Whatever your format we can ensure that you receive a super sharp picture every time.

    Our clients greatly appreciate the ease of navigation and content selection offered via our incredibly user-friendly interface. For movies, you can search by cover art, genre, rating, title, year and countless other fields. We even offer integration with on-demand subscription streaming services.
