Homestead is where the Heart Is

by New Wave AV

The system design was for a new build four-storey family property. The client’s main requirements were to have a system that allowed the family to enjoy both audio and video around the property with minimal equipment on show. In addition, they wanted a dedicated cinema room as well as a secondary bar projection system for more informal viewing. Having discussed the lighting design and window treatments with the interior designer, it was agreed that lighting and window treatment control would be specified in key rooms in the property.

The client wanted an active security system that proactively reacts to events rather than just records them after they have happened. Visualint cameras allowed New Wave AV to create specific rules and programme accordingly. Mockupancy automatically records whenever the alarm is not armed. When the alarm is set to ‘Away,’ the mockupancy playback is triggered, including lighting and window treatments.

Silent Gliss window treatments were specified and supplied by the interior designer. Integration into Control4 allows these to be triggered via a lighting keypad for ease of control. In the bar, they are automated to shut when the projector is turned on.

New Wave AV installed 20 zones of multiroom audio throughout the property and multiroom video to six rooms in the home. As well as the cinema room and bar, the living room also has a TV-based 5.1 solution. An in-wall subwoofer with colour matched grill was specified to minimise the visual impact in the room.
