CAI Vision profile

Early days

1973 (Est) CAI Vision
Installation and maintenance of large scale MDU* television distribution and security systems
1978 Founder member of trade body Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI)  
1986 CAI Vision Rentals
Equipment rental of television distribution and security systems to MDUs
* Multiple Dwelling Units, ie hotels and Blocks of flats

When the government announced the digital switchover in 2007, we knew that the market would change forever. We installed our first, coax-based television distribution systems way back in 1973. However, all the analogue systems in use would now need to be replaced by the new Integrated Reception Systems (IRS), capable of handling all types of digital and satellite media. Consequently, our business model needed to adapt as our analogue based rentals businesses started to wind down as the equipment installed in over a thousand blocks of flats suddenly became redundant.

Everything changes

CAI Vision had always installed many elements of smart home technology in its traditional MDU market. Reflecting changes in the construction industry and the move away from our core business, our new focus became multiple disciplines in multi-room single dwellings.

Home automation systems

Working together

We start with detailed meetings to discuss your requirements, then produce a System Design Brief which itemises all disciplines, the rooms that will have these services and which equipment will be located where.

System design

We use the System Design Brief to produce system designs, drawings, schematics and cable schedules.

Site meeting

During a site meeting we’ll advise on location and positioning of the main and supporting equipment to the correct finished floor levels.

First fix

If your electrician is to do the first fix installation, we will assist with first fix project management and inspect and test all cables before second fix.

Please don’t underestimate the complexities and challenges of a bespoke systems installation and just how much is involved!

We make sure all the bases are covered, including those you may not have thought of. With our help, you will future-proof and increase your property value without making expensive mistakes on first fix cabling.

Second fix

We come in and fit all your new systems with minimum disruption, making sure everything works OK and tidying up before we leave.


Our schematics, test certificates, O&M manuals and technical data sheets leave no room for error, you can keep these as a clear record for later reference.

Care and Maintenance

Our ongoing care and maintenance package ensures your systems are maintained over time, to carry on serving you effectively for years ahead. We are also available any time in the unlikely event that your system needs emergency repair.
