"I must say thank you for your input and advice in relation to the audio- lighting and all other aspects of the Control4 system. From a sceptic to a 100% believer in Control4 is how I would describe myself. I could not imagine why anyone would consider building a home without building in some sort of system, particularly if the home is in the higher price bracket."

— John Rae


Derek’s punctuality, workmanship and after sales follow up have been exceptional. As a qualified electrician myself, (and a pedantic Virgo), I took particular note of how the installation was carried out and at no time was there a need to raise questions. The pride of professional workmanship was clearly evident.

— Stuart and Julie Hellyer


Derek from Designer AV has a real ability to listen carefully to the client’s wish list and to concisely explain what can be achieved, and to implement it without fuss in a cost effective manner. The Control 4 system that he installed has proven to be reliable, flexible and capable. I have no hesitation in recommending both Derek Crane and the Control 4 system to anyone considering an intelligent home automated system.
