Whether you’re into collecting CD’s, vinyl or MP3’s, our audio systems distribute audiophile grade music around the whole house, playing the same song throughout the house in party mode, or different songs simultaneously in each room. With so many powerful products at our fingertips, you can have access to any number of physical media based audio sources, or streaming services including iTunes, Spotify, TuneIn Radio etc.
Simple and intuitive control of lights in your home is just the beginning of whats possible with our control systems. Energy efficiency and automatic switching and dimming make lighting control systems popular and simple to use. You can pre-set different moods for movie nights or relaxing, or select the colour of the lights using RGB mixing. Triggers can be set up to turn lights on at dusk, or all off at bedtime with the tap of a single button.
With a climate control system you can set the temperature of specific areas or zones around the house. If rooms are not in use, they probably don’t need heating. The use of specially placed sensors allow intelligent control of blinds to assist in the control of the temperature, saving on energy, and offers protection to art work and furniture from direct sunlight without compromising on the available light, all automatically.
Access & Security
Monitoring and controlling the security of your home either locally or remotely offers ultimate peace of mind. Receive alarm alerts and camera feeds to your phone, and have lights come on in the house if somebody is detected outside. Door entry systems allow you to see and talk to people at the door and even buzz them in, all from the control device.
Automation isn’t just about luxury living, it is also an extremely practical solution for businesses. We offer energy efficient heating and lighting systems for large office buildings, and we specialise in video walls, digital signage and conference rooms. Yachting is also of huge interest to us and we offer simple to use yacht wide systems that charter guests can pick up and use instantly.
Anything is possible, so contact us if you have something in mind that we haven’t mentioned.
Our control systems take away the hassle of having too many remotes dotted about the house. iPads are our preferred choice of controller which is customised to your system to reduce interface clutter.
Not only does the iPad control things, but multiple tasks can be performed such as setting the lights, drawing the blinds and setting up the home cinema, all from a single button. Control can also come from occupancy, temperature, light, humidity sensors etc. combined with times of day to automate nearly anything in your home control systems.
Jido Control was founded in 2012 to incorporate the skills and creativity of founders Mark and David. We met up a mountain in the French Alps and after a year of geek talk about new technology we decided to combine our training and experience in electrical engineering, computing, 3D design and project management to create intuitive, energy efficient automation systems for homes, yachts and businesses.
We work closely with hand picked software engineers, architects, hardware developers and interior designers to deliver on projects from basic retrofits, to fully ground up developments. It is a passion of ours to ‘wow’ people with our systems and to get creative with combinations of cutting edge technology to create impressive, functional living spaces.
