Stratus are constantly researching the latest technologies for potential use in the homes for which we design.
However we rarely adopt a new technology or innovation until it has matured, as we don’t use our clients as “guinea pigs” or “beta-testers” of the latest device or standard. This is despite our enthusiasm to embrace what is new.
Our technology partners represent the very best in their respective fields, and over the years Stratus has acquired the skills and professional accreditations to be the approved installers of these brands and technology solutions.
