That is the Andrew Lucas promise.
Andrew Lucas was originally founded by Krystian Zajac as a business specialising in IT services. His first venture was a computer repair business operated from his dining room table in Temple Fortune, Barnet, which steadily grew into a successful company with a number of high-net-worth clients, in part thanks to the good fortune of having a Hampstead Garden Suburb post code.
The gradual shift across to home automation began a few years later, when a client approached him asking if the company could automate the lighting, audio and shades of an apartment in Canary Wharf. Drawing on his background in mechanical engineering, Krystian invested in educating his team in the intricacies of the smart home and refocused on the skills that he'd need to complete the project.
Following its successful completion, he started a new area of his business focused on smart home installation and design. These two areas ran side-by-side until 2010, when the IT service side of the business was dropped in favour of a greater focus on home automation work.
Having grown significantly by focusing on home technology for ultra high-end residences, the company managed to thrive despite the difficulties of the post-financial crisis market. A growing employee roster now included Krystian's brother Wojtek Zajac, who was named Technician of the Year for Europe, Asia and Africa at the 2012 CEDIA Awards.
As the business continued to grow, it was time for a rethink on its image to bring it in line with the new decade. Newly renamed, Andrew Lucas London went from strength to strength, receiving a number of accolades for its work from CEDIA, Lutron and ITSA, cementing its reputation as an installer of the very highest quality.
A year of diversification saw Andrew Lucas grow its operations rapidly in 2016, with the launch of VR and AR design consultancy Andrew Lucas Studios and its own in-house magazine Connected Lifestyle. Another R&D project came to fruition with investment in Neos, the UK's first smart home insurance provider, into an independent business that is growing from strength to strength.
While the main Andrew Lucas offices are based in North London, the company has completed prestigious projects in locations all over the world. Whether on the slopes of the Alps, the deserts of the Middle East or a family home in London, Andrew Lucas has the expertise to deliver the perfect smart home for your needs, no matter the nature of the project.
Having specialised in ultra-premium residences in Europe, the USA and the Middle East, Andrew Lucas is now extending its service to cover a wider range of properties than ever before, taking advantage of rapid developments in smart home technology to deliver superior yet affordable solutions for smart homes both large and small.
