The main objective for this property was to create the maximum possible system with the minimum amount of cables — a challenge in itself seeing as it is a Grade II listed Queen Anne building.
The client wanted to use the power and versatility of an integrated system to combine all their media, security, and lifestyle requirements. To achieve this, Intuitive Homes and Ultamation designed and installed a complete Crestron system on an enterprise-grade Wi-Fi network infrastructure for full control of the AV, security, CCTV, access control, and heating systems. The team also installed a new wireless Lutron lighting system, pushing the limits of what was possible with the new technologies available.
The team installed two Future Automation mechanisms for the main two lounge TVs. In the informal lounge, the integrator wanted to make the most out of the view through the 3.2m Skyframe sliding doors, so installed a Future Automation PL lift into a beautiful Waney Edged cabinet. When not in use, the TV is hidden away and the client can enjoy the open space afforded by the huge glazed doors.
A pre-programmed morning lighting scene is tied into the alarm feature on the Crestron touch panels and sees a 20-minute fade up of the lights coincide with the wake-up alarm. A global evening scene runs at sunset and checks if the lights are on in any room. If they are, the evening scene will trigger for that area.
The judges were impressed with the many technical challenges that were well solved.
