Our Google reviews

Tony Hursey
We were recommended Carbon Integration for our home cinema project & control 4. On-site, Jeevan has been a pleasure to deal with and his entire team works diligently to get the job done. Everything is left incredibly clean and presentable after work has been carried out. We had some initial back and forth around designs but I’m glad we listened to the team’s recommendations in the end. I’d highly recommend these guys!
David Francis
We had an existing Lutron lighting system that needed upgrading that was 10+ years old. Jeevan at Carbon came over after finding them on google to assess our current system. We were offered a couple of different options, a partial upgrade or a complete upgrade, and both options were excellently explained in terms even I could understand. We decided to go with the complete upgrade, great work guys. Smart lighting at it's best!
Chris Isaacson
Working with Carbon Integration has been a pleasure. They are all so accommodating and professional, offering brilliant advice and smart home maintenance. We have had work carried out by them since 2015 and carried on having small bits of work here and there, and they've always been at the end of a phone to help.
Liam Stockley
Our main contractor initially brought Carbon to advise on our project in Gerrards Cross. They installed a Control4 system to control the whole home. It is so nice not to have a million and one remotes to control different items and one system that can control them all. I highly recommend the guys over at Carbon; working with them has felt like a real collaboration from start to finish. Thanks, Indi!
Ambrosial London
I wasn't sure about all the work my husband wanted to have done on a media room, but I have to admit it was well worth it! Watching movies at home now is better than going to the cinema! Brilliant work, guys. Thanks so much.
Ben Jones
Smart installed a multi-room video and audio system for us. Excellent service and very professional from start to finish. Highly recommended.
Fiaz Iqbal
Amazing company, very helpful and friends, would highly recommend. The team installed a state of the art sound system in bar/restaurant and followed up with great aftercare when needed.
ARJM Trehan
Met Indy and Jeevan around 6 years ago by accident. Turned out to be fabulous! They totally changed our initial lighting plans for the better. Installed a Gira KNX system with some fancy light switches and app. The guys are fantastic and are always on hand with any issues or upgrades. I highly recommend them.
Hugh Villiers
Top people - Always busy so they can take time to get to your issue but once there it is solved. Highly recommended
Anthony Wrigley
Excellent Service from Smart Property Automation which is run by two brothers. They are extremely knowledgeable professional and reliable and always courteous and respond quickly. I would not hesitate to thoroughly recommend them and we've been using them for over 5 years now and they have an excellent track record with us. Anthony & Yai Wrigley
