Located in the outskirts of London, this 1-year smart home installation project costing roughly £70K reveals modern home design, integrated with high-end technology. Originally built in 1940’s the owner bought property in 2017 and planned for a complete modernisation. This involved taking down walls, rewiring all the electrics and chaining the plumbing. With this major reconstruction we had the opportunity to install a unique level of smart home technology including in-ceiling subwoofers and speakers. By working directly with the construction company architects and builders we were able to ensure that the required infrastructure and power required for smart home services are considered at every step.
Having the technology as hidden as possible was very important to the home owner but the open-plan layout of the house made this a bit tricky. Control4’s home control options mixed with KNX keypads allowed the decor not to be compromised. Downstairs living area take on an open plan concept and consist of the living room, kitchen and a dining room. To cater to this design and to ensure that the whole home audio delivers even sound coverage across the entire area, Smartech installed 16 speakers to the walls and ceiling.
The whole home lighting is based on KNX and Control4 integration. Control4 interfaces are used around the house as the main user interface and the client can use that to control the home’s main functions such as lights, HVAC, sound, video and security system.
For true entertainment the house has a dedicated home cinema room to sit down and relax. The sound system in the theatre uses 7.4.2 Atmos set up using Artcoustic speakers and subwoofers. We choose JVC 4K HDR projector and acoustically transparent fixed frame screen from Projecta so that we could mount the front speakers behind for good directional audio. The cinema room lights, audio and video are integrated with Control4 system for a smart cinema experience.
A security system was a must for this secluded property and we choose to install Texecom smart alarm and Hikvision CCTV as both are reliable and works really well with Control4. In future, the homeowners are looking to complete the property with an automated fate and video intercom.
