A two-career couple with a young family benefits from automation to make their home run smoothly. With a Control4 system tying all of the electronics together, the net result is a smart home that needs minimal intervention to operate multiple TVs and distributed music, security, HVAC, lighting and shades. We provided the latest technology to make living in a luxury building comfortable, safe and fun.
With multiple residences, the homeowners wanted to be able to view and manage their properties easily in real time while in residence or remotely. Seven zones of distributed audio (kitchen, family room, master bedroom, living room, master walk-in closet, her bath and his bath) provide music throughout the residence through the Control4 interface. This includes streaming music from Pandora, radio stations, and Tidal. Airplay and Bluetooth are available as sources in each zone, allowing streaming from personal devices. Automated shades in the Living Room, Library and Master Bedroom operate from a Lutron system and provide pre-set times for opening and closing depending on the time of the day, year and occupancy. They also protect furnishings and artwork from harsh sunlight. Pre-set lighting schemes from Lutron throughout the residence create convenience and comfort for this growing family.
The Master Bedroom features a custom furniture piece at the end of the bed which houses a 43” Samsung TV on a super quiet lift mechanism. The Master Bedroom also has surround sound, automated shades and automated scene lighting. Control switches are on either side of the bed and also operate with iOS and Android devices.
Overall this penthouse provides an elite standard for home technology that maximizes ease-of-use for a young, busy family in a luxury environment.
