Keeping tech simple
16th August 2023
How many remote controls do you have at home, or even in the office? Or perhaps you have an Amazon Alexa that refuses to connect with the rest of your home appliances? Juggling multiple ‘smart devices’ can be an issue as the amount of tech grows. Creating bespoke home solutions by integrating technology and design is the mission of Masterlord tenant Cerebrum Systems. They are home automation specialists, designing and installing TVs, home cinemas, audio, smart lighting, blinds, networks and more.
It’s all about keeping things simple, according to technical director Kieron Eales who, with procurement and interiors director Jules Gregory, founded the company seven years ago. Prior to creating Cerebrum Systems, Kieron had over ten years’ experience working in the electrical and home automation industry. Jules, meanwhile, gained her expertise through over eleven years in procurement and interior design.
Working across East Anglia, London and surrounding counties, Cerebrum work with developers on the design and specification of home tech for residential and multi-dwellings, through to fitting and commissioning. As systems become more sophisticated, the expertise of Cerebrum is in high demand.
From home cinemas to lighting and motorised blinds, Cerebrum have a wealth of knowledge in the construction and residential industry. The integration of systems, from lighting to speakers, mean Cerebrum’s design and installations make for a clean design without compromising on quality.
‘We aim to make our installations future proof’, says Jules. ‘Using cabling in the right locations for the right systems throughout a home means the owner can extend or change their setup easily without running more cables. This saves you having to knock through or replaster walls at a later date!’
Home cinemas and media rooms have become more popular, combining wall-mounted screens for watching a film or playing games, with high-end sound systems. Using visualiser software, Cerebrum can show clients the exact look of their installation and swiftly modify it. If a client doesn’t have space for an immersive home cinema, a media room can be multifunctional, with tech discreetly hidden and perfectly tailored to suit their lifestyle.
With many more people working part or full time at home, a fast network is vital. Even when rural networks won’t support streaming video, for example, alternative satellite systems can be used to deliver high-speed connectivity.
Cerebrum Systems originally had an office in Epsilon House, but moved to Alpha 2 when they needed more space and the ability to show off the latest tech.
‘The flexibility at Masterlord Office Village meant that we only had a simple move onsite, it was a seamless operation. We’re perfectly placed here with good road links to London and all over East Anglia,’ added Jules Gregory.
Cerebrum’s expertise in design and technology is clear when you visit their impressive Alpha Terrace office, where they’ve customised the space perfectly.
