Our Most Challenging Project Yet…150 Plus Lighting Circuits,14 Zones of Audio, 4 Projection Systems, Smart Security, Full Voice Control and Much More


Home Automation

Home Theatre and Audio

Smart Security




This particular project has been one of our favorite to work on and by far most challenging because the clients and architect gave us an opportunity to showcase our creativity and work with the latest and most state of the art solutions for each space. The requirement was very simple: make this sprawling 10,000 sq ft apartment as smart as possible and do not cut corners to give the best possible results. Every space required intense research and planning and very detailed execution to ensure we provided solutions which fit the design aesthetic but did not compromise on industry standards for the solutions we were hired to deliver. The entire home would have smart lighting, and every bedroom, bathroom and outdoor balcony would also have audio which can be easily controlled and streamed to from smartphone or tablet. Television and Watching Movies was a favorite pastime for our clients and they wanted unobtrusive viewing options for each bedroom and an Immersive Audio Surround Sound System with a 4K Projector for their Theater Room which could also be used as a spare guest bedroom when required. Smart security would be installed in specific areas with IP Cameras and a Smart Video Door Phone which can ring to any mobile phone no matter where you are in the world. An enterprise grade Gigabit Network and WiFi throughout the entire residence along with Control4 Home Automation Solutions would connect the entire system together.

The design and planning for this project was spread out over many months and the final installation, integration and testing took an entire month to complete. It was definitely one of our most complex and challenging projects, but we and the clients were extremely happy with the results. The KNX system has been working flawlessly on the backend and creates no downtime or issues for control of the lighting or motorized window shadings. The AV is used every single day as the clients really enjoy watching television and movies. Music is regularly played as well when guests come over and entertainment takes place. Our clients were thrilled with the final results and have mentioned to us a few times how guests to their residence always comment on how unique the A/V and Automation solutions integrated in their home are. We continue to work with them for upgrades to this residence and solutions for their other residences as well. For us there can be no greater compliment than a client giving us more opportunities to work with them after our initial work. This tells us the client was truly satisfied with the results we have been able to achieve for them and appreciates the results Avenue Sound works hard to deliver
