Modern smart are a home theatre and automation specialist based on the gold coast, the company was founded by Dan Skyba. Dan Has a passion from all things A/V and automation.


When Dan was younger he completed a diploma in music and sound engineering and has had a passion for music and audio solutions from a very early age, Dan then went on to become an electrician and had been working as an electrician in a leading role for 15 years when he started to take notice of the emerging automation market and it’s ties to the A/V industry, after years of research and living with automation systems in his own home he decided that he wanted to take his experience as an electrician and merge it with his love for A/V and automation and created modern smart.


When Dan decided to start an automation company he researched several brands in the industry, he wanted to ensure that he could service the needs of all budgets and allow everyone to enjoy the convenience of home automation so he chose two products which represented both the entry and the premium end of the market, Fibaro and control4. Both products offer the usability and functionality which they are built for in a reliable and easy-to-use way. With Fibaro we have a product that can cater to the entry level of the market which concentrates on automation of lighting, security, door access, blind and roller door control and CCTV, Fibaro caters for some of our most rewarding work as we use it for our assisted living packages to improve the lifestyles of people who have disabilities and find it difficult to carry out every day tasks, we implement a Fibaro system to make their lives easier and more convenient in a more cost effective way.

With Control4 we have a premium system which will integrate everything Fibaro can plus seamlessly integrate your Audio and Visual systems into the same product allowing control of multi room audio and video and the supply of premium quality A/V hardware with their range of speakers and amplifiers.

This means that Modern Smart know their products allowing them to give their love and attention to your install and get you the best out of your home automation system.
