Best Integrated Home

Level III

Winner
  |  Americas

Lakeridge

by Land & Sea Entertainment

There’s a broad array of solutions integrated into this beautiful home, from security to irrigation to rock-solid networking.

There’s a critical component in this integration that the client never really sees – but it’s a priority for Land & Sea: Power management and protection. It’s something the judges took careful note of when awarding this project top honors.

Land & Sea explains: “Power problems account for most of the events that lock up systems. This site is located in a volatile weather location and when the storms roll, in all bets are off. In the winter, the static electricity can bite you.” Surge protection and power “cleaning” ensure reliable operation from all the home’s systems.

Distributed video feeds content to 20 screens (including one in a shower), and house-wide flexible audio distribution is a big feature here, too.

The recently-developed Crestron system that runs everything was tested in the home of Land & Sea’s owner, Terry Morton – he was a beta tester for the new programs – and when the bugs were fixed, that system went into this home.

There’s a broad array of solutions integrated into this beautiful home, from security to irrigation to rock-solid networking. The attention to detail here is something – for example, “The home is surrounded by storm grade shutters that are outside of double-pane gas-filled windows. A recent wildfire consumed homes adjacent to this property and the fire department credited the shutters for saving this home. The importance of these shutters is paramount, but they also have acoustic material in the slat cells and they do a nice job of helping contain high late-night audio volumes from this home’s audio systems, and creating a perfect blackout for movie watching.” CEDIA’s judges say this is a “gorgeous property with an integration to match.”

Distributed video feeds content to 20 different screens.
Distributed audio fills this house with music, too – note the speakers in the ceiling.
