Smart electronics elevate luxury living in this custom home designed for a retired couple. Built from the ground up with natural finishes and high-end architecture, the audio, video, HVAC, and security technologies blend seamlessly to create a cohesive home featuring modern amenities and the Creston home control system.
Custom Lighting Controls
Oversized windows throughout the home allow for spectacular views and abundant natural light, prompting the need for automated shading to protect interior surfaces. Industrial rollers are programmed based on occupancy and time of day. Lutron HomeWorks lighting allows control of all illumination.
Hidden equipment, cables, and other elements preserve the sleek, minimalist aesthetic of the interior. Networking equipment and cooling components are housed in a hallway behind stunning cherry wood doors. Extensive cabling runs unseen through the house, expertly corralled by wire management infrastructure. Built-in Sonance, Invisible Series speakers are installed unobtrusively in ceilings and cabinetry.
Seamless Automation and Integration
The Creston home control system integrates lighting, security, networking, and other components throughout the home. This provides all-inclusive control of lights, shades, HVAC, surveillance, entertainment, and computers through one centralized interface. Creston controls are accessible via touch panels or mobile interfaces with smartphones or tablets.
Smart home controls and hidden electronics bring modern technologies to life with minimal impact on the design of this Cape Cod home.
