A beautiful five-story brownstone in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay is enhanced with state-of-the-art electronics and automation. Using the Crestron system, all devices and systems provide interconnectivity to make this home not just smart, but brilliant! Audio, video, security and surveillance, HVAC, and lighting and shading control systems interact seamlessly on-site from touch pads or smart phones/tablets for ease-of-use and convenience. As our clients own multiple residences, remote access is another key component of the project. The client wanted, and received, a simple control interface with a reliable system. Collaborating with an award-winning builder, architect and interior design team, we provided comprehensive plans, products and installation that makes living in a large home practical, efficient, safe, and luxurious.
From the lower level which includes exercise areas and a wine cellar to the exquisite roof top deck – and every floor in between – this Back Bay brownstone provides state-of-the-art home technology in all living spaces. One of the benefits provided is the ability to listen to music from anywhere in the home and change locations while listening, from the lower level to the roof deck. Programmed shading for times of day and season, when in residence or away, eliminates fading of furnishings and keeps heat in or out. Lighting controls offer the ability to set lighting scenes for the comfort of specific activities.
The home boasts 20 music zones, 18 HVAC/radiant heat zones; seven video zones; one media room; and 150 lighting zones. HVAC, lighting, shading, AV, wine room monitoring, alarm integration, garage door status and control, surveillance/cameras, lighting control, front and back entry communications and door release via touch screens, weather interface, telephone and intercom communications.
