Install yourself or let us help

Our smart home offering provides everything from plug and play DIY options to home visits, expert advice and installation.

Installations come in all shapes and sizes. Many of the products we sell can be easily installed in a typical DIY fashion with the help of an instruction manual, followed by a simple set up to get everything running smoothly. That said, some require an extra level of experience and most properties benefit from someone with broad knowledge of the solutions available talking through what you are seeking to achieve and making you aware of what’s possible. We call this the DIWM method (or Do It With Me). For this reason, our experienced sales advisors now go the extra mile to visit you at your home or place of work to talk through and assess your needs, recommending the most suitable equipment for you, your space and your budget. We'll hide equipment out of sight, serving every room in the house with music, movies and high-speed internet – all connected to heating, lighting and security for the ultimate intelligent home.

Big or small, our installations are done by our network of trusted professionals, with Richer Sounds staff managing the whole process. We handle everything, so it’s seamless and stress-free for you.
