Busy, working parents needed a stress-free space to raise their young family while having the ability to monitor and manage multiple properties remotely. Complete with a comprehensive system that includes security features, entertainment, and other electronic components, these solutions brought convenience and function to an expansive, luxury penthouse.
Powerful Smart Controls
Smart homes require a central command hub, and the Control4 system makes this possible with one easy-to-use interface that includes controls for lighting, HVAC, security, music, entertainment, and more.
Advanced Entertainment Solutions
Distributed audio — including streaming via Pandora, Tidal, Airplay, Bluetooth, and more — is managed through the Control4 interface and separated into seven zones, including:
- Family Room
- Living Room
- Primary Bedroom
- Primary Walk-In Closet
- His and Hers Bathrooms
Entertainment amenities include a custom piece of furniture at the foot of the bed in the primary bedroom that houses a 43” Samsung flatscreen on a quiet lift mechanism paired with surround sound. Convenient controls are placed on either side of the bed, and remote operation is possible via iPhone or Android app.
Automated Privacy and Light Control
Natural lighting and city views are controlled with a Lutron system, which is programmed to open and close shades in the living room, library, and primary bedroom, based on time of day, season, and occupancy. This functionality not only adds convenience but also protects interior surfaces from fading from UV exposure.
With the proper smart home connectivity and controls, this young family added convenience, elevated function, enhanced luxury appeal, and gained a living space that was perfectly suited to their busy lifestyle.
