We are delighted to congratulate Inspiro on their new Gold Partner status! They join a small group of exceptional Loxone Partners who have demonstrated their commitment to Loxone and their ability to plan and carry out extremely high quality installations.

Qualifying as a Gold Partner is no easy feat- it requires dedication, hard work and most importantly, not just passing a technical review, but also the thumbs up from their customers.

The need in the market for high quality domestic AV and automation installations led d3 to set up the Inspiro brand. Inspiro by d3 specialises in the planning and delivery of exceptional residential home automation across the UK.

Loxone: The system of choice

We spoke with Technical Director, Andy McCully, about d3’s decision to move into the residential sector and asked him what attracted d3 to Loxone:

“We had been building towards a residential side to D3 for over a year but somehow we just never felt comfortable with some of the typical product ranges. These always seemed expensive and complicated for the user and just didn’t relate to what I would want my family to be using in our home.

A lot of time was spent researching different integration and Smart Home products but as soon as we looked into the Loxone ethos and product range it was clear that it fitted exactly what we wanted to bring to the Scottish market: flexibility, great value and clever design.”

d3 have a variety of exciting projects already under their belt, from the more traditional commercial installs including offices and high profile hotels, right up to churches and town halls. In addition, d3 have worked closely with Manchester United on a number of projects, and have installed the AV system for the F1 Auditorium at Silverstone.


Here at Loxone, we feel that Smart Home technology should be used to enhance our lives, rather than complicate them. This is a vision that Managing Director, Marc Heath and the team at d3 share. When asked about what makes d3 unique as a company, Marc had the following to say:

“D3 Audio & Visual has been going for 10 years now and we’ve taken a small, new start company to working with some of the most significant companies including Manchester United FC for the last 6 years.

We pride ourselves on our detail in project management and ability to deliver a project from design to completion. We’ve never wanted to fit technology for technology’s sake; let’s fit technology as something that can complement our lives. I think this is why our INSPIRO by d3 designs have been so popular.”

Such a breadth of installation experience gives Inspiro the level of quality of planning, project management and attentional to detail that we look for in a Gold Partner, and we can’t wait to see some of their upcoming projects take shape.

Meet the Inspiro team this weekend!

Inspiro Stand 1 (1)Last weekend, Inspiro by d3’s brand new exhibition stand made its debut at the Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating show. Designed as a miniature smart home (complete with fully functional TV!), the stand breathes life into what can be a challenging task: demonstrating the capabilities of a smart home without terrifying prospective customers with ‘scary-looking’ technology.

Last weekend’s show was great fun and great to see so many interesting building projects around Scotland. It was our first opportunity to show off our newly built ‘Mini Smart Home’ stand which demonstrated some of the Loxone lighting, heating, blinds, security and multiroom audio principles.

It certainly seemed to turn heads and was a big hit with the kids! We’ve met with some great people with great projects and have a busy few weeks ahead as floorplans have already started to come in.”

If you missed them last weekend, fear not! Inspiro by d3 will be at The Ideal Home Show in Glasgow this coming weekend (22nd-25th May), so if you’re planning to go, don’t forget to drop by, pick up a brochure and see the miniature smart home in action!
