CEDIA’s “Life Lived Best at Home” award honors the project that uses technology to maximize and enhance the client’s lifestyle, providing functionality, safety, entertainment, convenience, aesthetics, and efficiency. This award – judged by a panel of world-renowned architects and designers – takes into consideration how well the tech is married to the structure, and how it enhances the user experience. Creating a “frictionless” relationship with tech goes to the heart of what CEDIA members do – in fact, “Life Lived Best at Home” isn’t just the name of an award, it’s part of the CEDIA mission statement.
The clients here initially were interested in a dedicated home cinema, but after the initial meetings regarding a single AV solution, the project began to expand. Boutique AV says, “Through a full in-depth discovery, we were able to connect with our clients and understand their day to day lifestyle patterns holistically. Designing and creating solutions for them was genuinely a pleasure as they implicitly believed in our technology solutions. Mostly all solutions we presented to suit their lifestyle; they agreed to proceed and trusted us every step of the way to design and deliver an advanced system of integrated technologies tailored to their dream home.”
Those technologies include lighting, audio inside and out, video solutions, climate control, security and surveillance, pre-programmed automated scenes, and even motorized blinds and shades. Control interfaces are absolutely seamless, and Boutique AV designed and programmed over 200 Siri Voice commands to control individual subsystem commands or integrated subsystem scenes.
This project also picked up CEDIA’s Best Integrated Home Award (Level II, Asia Pacific) for 2020.
