About Intelligent Environments Ltd
“We are a family business specialising in creating intelligent environments – where you WORK, where you LIVE, and where you PLAY!”
100% kiwi owned and operated, Intelligent Environments was established in 2007 by Paul and Nikki Harris. Despite the challenge of the economic downturn after the commencement of business, the company has grown to become a leading player in the design and installation of residential and commercial control systems.
Paul Harris is well known and respected in the industry, with many years of experience on the management teams of leading manufacturers/suppliers of energy management and home automation systems.
He feels the success of the company is due to its ‘roots’ as a family business. The Harris’ strong family values are mirrored in the culture of the business. This is a family business where everyone is treated like family, where staff genuinely care about each other and their customers, and work together to make the magic happen! The company offers old-fashioned ethical values, in a modern technologically advanced industry!
The energetic Intelligent Environments team work with clients, architects, builders, and electrical contractors to develop a fully integrated package of lighting, security, hvac, audio-visual, and much, much more.
With more than thirty years in the industry, Paul’s expertise is in bridging the gap between the client’s wants, and the contractor’s ability to provide. His team are second to none when it comes to selecting the appropriate technology for a project, and managing the design and installation process.
Projects have been large and small! The team simply focuses on providing the best possible solution for every client, and every budget.
As demand from customers has increased, the team has grown to include representation in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
In an effort to continually provide the best possible solution for the customer, the company only use products that reach their exacting standards in terms of value for money, reliability, and level of support.
In order to provide that “best solution” it has often proved necessary to source from manufacturers overseas, and the company are now the sole authorised distributors in New Zealand for CP Electronics energy saving controls out of the UK, the Rapix emergency lighting automated testing + reporting system from Australia, and Tvilight adaptive street lighting controls from Europe.
As well as using these products to contribute towards a ‘solution’ for their clients, Intelligent Environments supply, and provide training and support for these products, throughout New Zealand.
