In the construction of a family house with residential space of 17,000 square feet, we have been involved from the start of construction. The client came to us with his wishes about a simple operation that includes lighting and blinds without knowing about the possibility to integrate audio/video equipment, heating and cooling, and security systems. Considering the project and high expectations of the client, the real challenge was to make the decision on what will not only be used by the client, but also by the other residents, including young children.
The proposed solution
At the time of planning, we worked closely with the client, architect, and interior designer. The agreed-upon solution included the following:
- Lighting design and ease of use
- Automation of shades and curtains
- An audio system in each room, which will hold the music collection of the client's 350 albums of music
- Home cinema system in the living room and master bedroom
- Multi-room video system with hundreds of stored Blu-rays and DVDs
- Automation of heating, cooling, and air recuperation
- Automation of all safety systems
- Coverage of the entire building by top-quality wireless Internet
Working on this project was a real pleasure for all of the members on our team. While working, our client realized just how simple house management could be, so additional requests kept coming in every day.. The final result surpassed the expectations of the client, which made us very happy.
For the client, it was the first experience of this kind. Now it's no longer necessary to use five TV remotes to turn on the home cinema system. You only need to use one now, which is extremely easy to use. Also, the client can operate the screens on the wall via touch screen. The possibility of controlling the system by using an iPhone or an iPad made our clients very happy. From now on, users can manage all segments of the system by using their smart phones, regardless of whether they are in their home or at a remote location somewhere in the world.
The proof of customer satisfaction is their request for such a system to be installed in other residential facilities, which we are already working on.
Given that this is a very large facility and a very large system, our maintenance team will visit this house once a year, according to the maintenance contract.
Our team checks the entire system and performs preventive maintenance so that the customer can use the system trouble-free throughout the next year.
