Lakeside Modern Farmhouse

by ZIO Group

“The client is happy with the decisions we made and a reliable, easy-to-use system, especially given its size and complexity.” – ZIO Group

Sometimes, clients have had a less-than-satisfactory relationship with technology. That was true in this case – in fact, the team from the Zio was contracted to “rescue” a system that wasn’t working properly. The client was skeptical at first, but after trusting his “new” integrator, a relationship began that yielded terrific results after a four-year upgrade.

ZIO’s efforts gave the client:

Eight zones of 4K video,

Sixteen zones of stereo audio, and a Dolby Atmos/Auro immersive 5.2.2 system with access to 11 sources,

Extensive illumination that includes no less than 151 “smart” downlights,

An Elk M1 Gold security system with 14 monitored zones and four keypads which provides reliable burglar alarm, smoke detection and pool alarm functionality,

Twenty-one Visualint high-resolution Starlight low-light PTZ and fixed surveillance cameras installed throughout the exterior of the property which consists of four buildings, two gates and a boat dock,

A professional grade gigabit network with indoor and outdoor access points provide strong wireless signal for wireless devices on the property,

And pool and spa control, an intercom system, and a complete set of support and diagnostic tools are deployed on the project to provide proactive system maintenance and support.

Add to that a plethora of automated and one-touch scenes, and the end result is a client with complete faith in his integration firm. As the ZIO Group tells us, “The client is happy with the decisions we made and a reliable, easy-to-use system, especially given its size and complexity.”

The home includes eight zones of 4K video.
A big part of the project: Extensive illumination that includes no less than 151 “smart” downlights.
