This installation was to a large house with outbuildings and a requirement for several levels of automation:
The property has two sets of gates, we installed a system which can not only be controlled from within the building but also from mobile devices such as smart phones. Video was also added with a feed to colour monitors in four separate buildings.
We fitted a centralised system containing the music library and a web based music streaming service (in this case it was Spotify) which was linked o no less than twelve areas (or zones) around the property.
In addition to the music our client wanted TV in seven areas of the property. As with the music we fitted a centralised system comprising of two Sky+ HD boxes and two foreign language satellite boxes, this was connected to the seven areas, or zones.
Both the above systems were complimented with Airplay.
To allow full control of the lighting we fitted a Control 4 intelligent lighting system. This not only allowed the user to operate the lights but allowed the lights to be programmed and to also work intelligently, turning themselves on and off depending upon whether or not a room was occupied or reacting to ambient light levels (ie; exterior lights turn on at dusk).
Just to finish the job off additional lighting was added to an access road to the property.
