This beautiful living space required equally beautiful home automation technology.
The client, who has a technical and programming background, had many requirements regarding AV control, multi-room audio, power metering and flow metering and set very specific objectives. The design also had to satisfy needs established by the architect.
Audio visual, data, HVAC, lighting, metering, multi-room audio and security systems needed to be integrated. A wall mounted television with in-ceiling speakers, subwoofer and centre speaker concealed within the joinery was provided to watch television and DVDs in the Piano room. A similar system was provided for television and DVDs in the Master Bedroom. A motorised wall mounted television automatically extends for optimum viewing and retracts when the television is turned on or off.
Multi-room audio was provided to twelve areas.
Each area has an iPod as a single source and in-ceiling speakers. Variable volume from the iPod dock switches on the auto sensing multichannel amplifier – a very simple solution that suits the client’s needs. Cabling allows for future streaming of music.
The cabling infrastructure had to cater for future high speed data, IP based technologies and in particular future Apple technologies. A 10 Gigabit data network was installed through out the home for future all house connectivity and media streaming.
