Our engineers take great care and treat your home with the respect it deserves when carrying out any internal work, including wall mounted TVs.
Wether you are working, gaming, streaming or simply watching broadcast television, a wall mounted screen can enhance the experience.
Our fitters carry a range of fixed, tilt & swivel and full motion brackets to suit all makes of TV and for different types of location.
Our multi-room installations allow you to watch whatever you want wherever you want and can be customised to your exact needs.
They can incorporate multiple devices such as satellite receivers (for Sky, Hotbird, Freesat, etc) DVD players, images from your CCTV cameras as well as terrestrial TV and radio. All in glorious High Definition.
If your Smart TV struggles on WiFi, we can install a cabled network from your Broadband router. If the WiFi speeds reduce as you get further from the router, we can add a repeater anywhere in your home.

4/5G external antennas for routers
If you live somewhere without access to fast fibre broadband then, a 5G router could be an alternative, as 5G broadband can be just as fast.
However, if you have low 5G signal strength or an unreliable connection, an external antenna and repeater transmitter can help to boost your signal to achieve the speeds and reliability needed.
Before you buy an antenna it’s important to know which type will work best in your location and that the router and antenna are compatible with each other. You need to choose either a directional or omni-directional antenna, look up which 5G frequencies are supported and ensure your router also supports the antenna; we can deal with all of this for you.
A directional antenna will receive signals strongly in a single direction, while an omni-directional antenna will receive signals moderately well from all directions. As a general rule, the higher the gain, the more directional an antenna is.
Omni-directional is the best in urban areas with numerous cell towers, as you’ll be more likely to get a signal, and won’t be overly reliant on a single source. However, directional is better in rural locations as these can pick up signals from further away – they just need to be pointed correctly.
Suitable routers will typically utilise 2×2 MIMO, which means they feature two external antenna ports. You can buy two separate antennas or a dual antenna system that will plug into both of these.
Also make sure that the antenna uses the same connection type (typically TS–9 or SMA). You can buy a simple set of adaptors to bridge the gap if you do find yourself with a mismatch.
