About Us

BE IN CONTROL has years of experience in successfully delivering high-end luxury home automation systems. Boasting international certification in both Crestron and Lutron programming, we have delivered some of the most advanced residential systems locally and in the UK.

Every project is personal at BE IN CONTROL and therefore we spend time meticulously designing and planning each with the greatest of detail. An in-depth understanding of all systems involved and constant interaction with other appointed subcontractors sets BE IN CONTROL apart from other automation companies.

Our resources extend well past merely assisting and coordinating new projects, we also specialize in giving any existing system a face-lift.

Etienne has a great understanding of clients’ needs. He also has a philosophy of less is more and the simpler the better.

BE IN CONTROL, led by Etienne is without a doubt my preferred and trusted destination for anything technical within my home or office environments.
