A modern classic
This completely remodelled of a 1930 Federation home which was as extensive as it can get. The client who was an existing customer, was keen to take advantage to add all the modern technology features of today but maintain the look and feel of the original architecture that the home deserved. The brief was a true integrated home encompassing the Lighting, Security, Audio and Video and all networking.
We provided a Design and Construct contract and consulted on all technology aspects of the project.
As with so many of our larger installations, the process starts with a consultation process. This is followed by a Design and Documentation phase and leads us into Scope of Works, Project specification and costing. This allows us to ensure our product offer is always in line with the customers’ expectations.
The process ensures the combinations of products are compatible with each other, space and performance issues are identified well in advance of the installation phase saving time as money to the project.
One of the bigger challenges with a project of this nature is the time span it takes for the construction. This requires sharp project management and site documentation. This is especially true when working in with multiple trades.
By integrating C-Bus lighting control, Ness Security, E-Key Biometric access, Mobotix CCTV, as well as all the Audio Video components with an all-encompassing Savant control system we were able to provide the client with a user friendly all in one interface solution to control all aspects of their home.
The Lighting control is designed to be integrated with an astronomic clock to ensure lights are on with the setting of the sun and turn off at the desired time. Movement sensors provide an effortless control around the home along hall ways, walk-in-robes, bathrooms as well as side paths.
Biometric access control has been incorporated as part of the security system to provide a secure entry to the home as well as trigger events into the control system for lights and AV control.
A sense of the security and comfort comes from the integration of the CCTV cameras onto the iPads and TV around the home as well as the ability to view them from outside the home from a secure VPN connection.
Audio and Video equipment is all controlled via the Savant Host controller and allows for the seamless integration with lights and blinds were required.
Multi room audio is via Sonos with a total of 8 zones. It selection was chosen due to its superb interface and its ease of use.
The Savant control system was accepted well by the client and its ability to run on the client’s range of iPads and iPhones meant that it was always in arms reach.
