At Birkdale Smart Home, we aim to simplify Home Automation. This includes recognising where some products are simply unnecessary. Although distributed Audio & Visual did at one time have it's uses, we believe this to no longer be the case. With the improvement of streaming devices (Amazon Fire Sticks, Apple TVs etc.) and Smart TVs, any room can now have it's own, independent feed, choosing anything from Live TV to streaming services, for a much lower cost and a much easier install and high quality audio can be achieved with AirPlay or Chromecast compatible speakers.
No! Our system has been designed in a way that makes installation as simple and as understandable as possible. Providing you are competent enough, you could install it yourself!

We don't have any! Unlike other providers, the price you pay is a flat fee, and we don't have any mandatory charges post installation of your system.
Every single one of products are available to view, with pricing, on our website, allowing you to gauge just how much your system will cost before contacting us for a full quote. Any electrician is capable of installing our products, meaning no expensive specialist installer and no costly structural work to your property!
