The client, a builder, was wanting a home that featured the latest modern conveniences including electronic lighting, motorised blinds, irrigation, plasma televisions and music system.

With a strong emphasis on entertainment, the rear garden features a spectacular outdoor cabana that houses a huge 20 person spa and an outdoor BBQ and dining area.

The outdoor area required extensive lighting to highlight the immaculate garden, timber eaves, pond, fountain and elm trees. The entertainment areas required outdoor music, coloured LED lights and a large motorised television.

A Clipsal C-Bus control system was specified to control external house lights, landscape and feature lights. The C-Bus system also controls the outdoor entertainment system and the spa pool.

A Crestron 10” wireless touchscreen provides simple whole house control. The controller controls the C-Bus lighting system, blinds, features, spa and audio visual equipment. Advanced programming allows full integration of the spa including water temperature adjustment and feedback and a 24 zone yearly schedule for irrigation.
