Specialist knowledge and expertise
The owner of this newly built six bedroom property approached Smartcomm to enlist their specialist knowledge and expertise in designing and installing a state-of-the-art AV system that would provide ‘all in one control from a centralised position’.
Smartcomm’s solution encompasses an array of hi-tech gadgetry all brought together effortlessly via an ingenious Crestron control system; forming a fully integrated home automation solution that is an absolute power-house behind the scenes – and yet simple and family-friendly at the front-end. Crestron control lies at the heart of the system and is featured throughout the property; including the swimming pool and gymnasium in the basement, the ground floor, first floor and second floor.
An incredible 280 circuits of lighting delivers superb illumination to every corner of the house and throughout the garden with Preset scenes catering to every mood and occasion.
Curtain and blind control makes light work of opening and closing curtains and blinds smoothly and in precise alignment. Security plays a big part within the scheme with a variety of entry systems that would deter even the most determined unwanted visitor. A video and audio gate entry system ensures that guests at the door are seen and heard on all touchpanels before they are permitted entry. And if that wasn’t enough, a Biometrics finger recognition entry system at the external gates and within selected areas of the property makes certain that only persons with pre-scanned fingerprints can cross those thresholds.
The entertainment features of the system pack an equally impressive punch as the practical elements – movies come to life in the effortlessly stylish Cinema Room packed with cutting-edge technology, including a 90” motorised cinema screen for movie watching – whilst a 50” Full HD plasma screen provides an alternative day to day TV and SKY HD viewing option.
A Kaleidescape System further enhances the enjoyment for movie enthusiasts in the family by simplifying management and storage of their favourite movie collections and offering instant access on any display screen in the house. All this, including the lighting and curtains and blinds in the Cinema Room can be easily controlled via a sleek Crestron TPS-6X 6” colour WIFI touchpanel.
The family can watch crisp, clear images on any one of the numerous TV screens installed in the house including a Pioneer 60” full HD plasma screen in the Kitchen/Family Room, a Pioneer 50” full HD plasma screen in the Lounge, various other TV’s in the Dining Room, Study, all six Bedrooms, Kids Playroom and Aquavision TV’s in the Bathrooms. And if that whopping choice of TV’s wasn’t enough – there’s even one in the outside BBQ area!
Music lovers in the family have not been neglected as an Audio Request multi-room audio system delivers sweet music to every room in the house via a combination of B&W 8” and 6” high quality in-ceiling loudspeakers.
The Leisure Complex in the basement – comprising of a magnificent heated swimming pool and gymnasium – also benefits from multi-room audio and Crestron DigitalMedia via B&W in-ceiling speakers and a Pioneer 60” 1080p plasma screen.
