Articles, reviews and videos can tell you a lot about a smart home. However, if you’re considering a luxury smart home, there’s no better way to research than to come and visit a showroom to see it for yourself. We believe it’s wise to test and compare all your options before you commit. Our showroom in Cheadle is the ideal location to see different systems at work, all under one roof.

See the capabilities of our main smart home systems as they link up to lighting, security and entertainment systems, including the home cinema. A smart home is all about improving your home living experience. So come in, make yourself at home and imagine what life could be like. We’ll be there to answer any questions you may have and to discuss your plans going forward.

What You Can Expect to See

  • Crestron and Control4 Control Systems

  • The majority of our smart home installations involve either Control4 or Crestron. These are the smart home control hubs to which all other hardware and software is connected.

    Both Crestron and Control 4 have their advantages and disadvantages, depending on what you’re trying to achieve with your smart home. Fortunately, our smart home showroom in Cheadle is designed to allow guests to see the difference between the two systems.

    Working side by side, you’ll be able to operate the lighting, heating, blinds, entertainment system, security features and more. Have fun whilst getting a feel for the capabilities of a smart home and imagining yourself owning one. Once done, you’ll have tested both systems to determine which is the right one for you.

    Finite Solutions, unlike most smart home dealers, has both Crestron and Control4 programmers on hand. They’ll assist with making a decision based on your unique situation and together, find the right solution for you.

  • Lighting Design and Control

  • The idea behind our Cheadle Smarthome is comparison, and lighting control is no exception here. Control of the lighting is a crucial element of a luxury smart home. It complements the interior design, gives the house character and a deluxe feel.

    In the showroom, see how Lutron lighting and blinds are connected to both Rako and Control 4 systems to control the levels of light. Experience for yourself the different capabilities that these leading systems present, including lighting automation, which can help with making the right decision for your home.

    Our in-house lighting designers work with you from planning to completion. They can design lighting layouts that will enhance your interior and architectural style and provide the required flexibility and mood suitable for each room in the house.

  • Immersive Home Cinema

  • Discover a new cinematic experience through the power of smart home cinema rooms. Whilst a smaller space than other showrooms, the Cheadle showroom has an Epson 4K projector which projects onto a transparent 8-foot widescreen with remarkable high definition video. Audio plays through the world-class Triad speaker system from Control 4 with a full 7.2.2 Dolby Atmos cinema system built in, offering exceptional surround sound quality. Together, this technology offers a commercial-grade cinematic experience in the comfort of a private residence.

    Finite are able to provide larger and even more immersive cinema and media rooms if you wish to compare. For a more immersive demonstration, you can visit our Leeds Showroom. It hosts a Dolby Atmos 7.4.4 system with 4K laser projection in a dedicated cinema room. Our technicians can provide more information on bespoke home cinemas installation if needed.

  • Music Comparison

  • Audio quality makes a huge difference to the enjoyment it provides. Our Cheadle smart home is equipped with a Sonos music system, which is linked to speakers from several manufacturers. Visitors to the showroom can listen to music through Triad wall speakers, Artcoustic wall Artwork speakers or 3 different pairs of Sonance and B&W ceiling speakers.
    This showcases the levels of quality and also how speaker placement can make subtle differences.

    By comparing the different speaker systems on offer, you’re able to make a more confident decision about which smart home audio system to invest in. Take a seat, relax and listen to your favourite music on our different systems.


  • At the showroom, you’ll get the opportunity to see how smart technology can really enhance the security of a property. Not only does enhanced security provide peace of mind to you and your household, but it is also reliable and can be connected to other aspects of the home. By seeing the smart home security in action, you’ll be able to make a much more informed decision about the security requirements for your own home.


  • If you know you want a smart home but you’ve no idea how you would make it work, visiting a showroom can prove really useful. By visiting the Cheadle showroom, you’ll see the latest innovations in smart home technology to inspire you for your own home. With a variety of different systems and devices on display for you to try and enjoy, you’ll have a much more refined idea of what to do for your own project.


  • A home that is equipped with smart technology just feels different. It creates a unique atmosphere within the home for example when the lights switch on as you walk into a room or the blinds start to close the moment the sun sets.

    The only way to really know what this feels like is to visit a smart home and see the possibilities for yourself. Every home has a different atmosphere and personality and for smart homes, it is exactly the same. Whilst you experience and learn about the different aspects of our Cheadle showroom, you’ll also have the opportunity to discuss with an expert how this would translate to your own project.
