We will help you to take a project all the way from concept to completion ensuring that the vision is realised fully rather than compromised before it gets off the drawing board

Neil Silver is the Principal of Lighting Control in Edinburgh working with all the major names in controls.

A control system requires many choices to be made in the design stage to allow the desired operation. At Lighting Control we can help you through these stages and empower you to take control of the project at whatever level you are involved.

We can provide in-house controls design, programming, integration and provide all important training to complete a project all the way to handover.

At Lighting Control we don’t just design the lighting we make the lighting design happen by ensuring the technical and electrical design of the system is sound.

We work with many of the main manufacturers of Audio Visual controls, home controls and Lighting Controls.
