Background

When the architect designing this residence initially approached us for this custom integration, we thought it would be a very basic installation of smart lighting and AV integration of the client’s Bose System. Soon the clients liked the solutions which were possible so much they added a Media Room, Motorized Window Shadings, and Lighting Control for the entire top floor of their Duplex Apartment. Let’s take a better look into where we started and how we finally finished.

  • AV Integration
  • Lighting Control
  • Motorized Window Shadings
  • Home Automation
Media Room

Audio Video

The Audio/Video Solutions for this spacious residence were to be entirely located in a Media Room which would house a large 65’’ Display for Everyday Watching and a Dedicated Projector with Motorized Projection Screen for Cinematic or Entertainment Experiences. Considering the space may be used in bright environments, we hoped to ensure our customers would enjoy clarity and detail even when switching from the Television to watching the same content on the Projector.

  • Sony X75F 65’’ 4K Smart Television with HDR
  • Apple TV 4K
  • Epson EH-TW9400 4K Upscaling Projector
  • Screen Innovations 94’’ Solo 2 Motorized Projection Screen with Pure Grey .85 Gain Fabric
  • Bose Lifestyle 650 Wireless Surround Sound System
Smart Lighting

Home Automation

When we walked through the benefits of adding  a Control4 Automation System to their residence, the clients were quite enthused with the entire idea. They added smart lighting throughout their top floor and also wanted to add motorized window shadings which would be automated with the system. With Control4’s sleek keypads and user interface, the clients were able to easily adjust to controlling their lighting, AV and window shadings using the Control4 app on their phone, SR- 260 Universal Remote Control, or the Control4 Decora Keypads.

  • Control4 EA-1 Home Automation Controller
  • Control4 SR-260 Universal Remote Control
  • Control4 C4-DIN-8APD-E 8 Channel Adapter Phase Dimmer
  • Control4 C4-KC240 Wireless Decora Keypad
  • Control4 C4-DIN-8RELSW-E 8 Channel Relay
Living Room

Final Verdict

I think the Final Verdict is very easy to see in the video we have posted with the Homeowner of this residence. He truly describes the integration best when he mentions that Home Automation was initially “supposed to be a luxury, slowly [as he] started using it became more of a comfort, and now as you use it more you feel it is a necessity.” It becomes obvious how easily making your home a bit smarter and fine-tuning certain spaces products can make to your everyday life better!
