New cameras were installed, new wide-angle lenses were fitted and the ‘rail cam’ in the garden was given a better lens for coverage. The bedroom was redesigned, the garden was given a make-over, the kitchen was modified for better camera coverage. All in all it looked stunning on the gallery monitors.
