Colaba Residence

Background 

What if you have already renovated your home, but now want to make it smart? Are there any solutions for this? We faced this very challenge in this two bedroom Colaba apartment. Our clients wanted to combine all their Audio/Video solutions on a single remote. Also, they wanted to control, and stream music to different rooms in their house through their smart phones. A variety of new smart lock solutions are populating the market. Our clients felt like carrying keys was a thing of the past. Hence we realized, a universal remote and smart security was just what this family needed.

Universal Remote and Smart Security

Audio Video

This nuclear family spent most of their day at work or school, but when home really wanted to take advantage of their space. Listening to music, streaming Netflix and HBO, and watching movies are a big part of their leisure time.

Home Automation

To retrofit Home Automation into existing home has become much easier with brands like Control4. You can now easily integrate Split Air Conditioners, add Smart Security such as Door Locks, and retrofit Smart Lighting and Audio/Video solutions throughout the residence. When we showed our clients the possibilities of everything that could be automated in their home, they couldn’t get over the fact that they would no longer have to carry keys with their new smart lock!

Networking and WiFi

A super fast and stable wifi network was one of the most important requests by our clients. They have cut the cord and no longer watch cable television. Everything is streamed through online apps, making good fast connectivity a must. With a combination of internet connectivity by Reliance Jio and hardware by Ubiquiti, they have faced 99% uptime till date.

Alexa, Universal Remote and Smart Security

Final Verdict

The addition of Alexa, a universal remote and smart security was a success. This residence proves you can enjoy the benefits of a smart home and still use wireless technology with a good Home Automation system and a strong network to enjoy the same benefits which wired smart home products provide. The family has been thrilled with the upgrade. They are hoping to add new devices in the near future by automating their lights and fans and adding a Doorbird Smart Video Door Phone.
