Our Story

Equippd is shaking up home technology, bringing the spheres of design and technology together in perfect harmony to create stylish and intelligent homes for truly modern lives.

In 2013, brothers and founders Charlie and Matthew saw how technology was continually viewed as complicated, messy, unattractive and unattainable. Through extensive research and testing, and establishing key partnerships with some of the very best in residential design, Equippd began weaving technology into the fabric of people’s lives.

Today, Equippd helps homeowners, architects and designers bring technology into their projects with a design-led approach that puts exceptional experience first. Its talented team of designers, engineers and programmers work across the UK, taking projects from inception to completion and beyond.

Our Mission By bringing technology and design together, we want to inspire, improve and innovate our clients’ lives, redefining the limits of how technology can connect and protect us and positively impact the environment.
