PROJECT OF THE MONTH

Automation, Control4, Technology

For us, we believe technology should be experienced and not seen as home automation systems often blend into their surroundings. But sometimes, as was the case with the owner of this Banana island mansion, technology deserves to be shown off! Bearing this in mind, there wouldn’t have been a better choice than for our design and integration team to showcase the brawn, brains and beauty of the Control4 system. The Control4 system seamlessly manages the lighting, shading, audio and video distribution, security and other elements in this wonderful home.

The homeowner being a tech savvy person approached us to design and install an integrated home automation system, a private home cinema (media room), smart lighting and shading control, and a wholesome entertainment system round the entire property.

OUR APPROACH

 

WSE designed and installed a highly comprehensive Control 4 system which controls AV as well as all the major electrical equipment including automated blinds, security systems and all the lighting systems around the house. We deployed Lighting systems and blinds from Lutron, CCTV from Axis, and Local Area Network from Pakedge.

After our design proposal was approved, the first phase of the project involved a site survey, project planning and we commenced the first fix cabling of infrastructure on the site. It also included the running of cables, mounting of back-boxes and speakers. This initial part of the project required extensive involvement and feedback between the design engineer and site manager. Together, we made decisions on how to minimize clutter and maximize unity of the systems.

The final phase of the project required the field engineer to terminate and connect all necessary equipment with utmost attention to cable management. The needed firmware was downloaded and the client was taught how to use the system. He was also given a manual after which the project was commissioned and ready for use.

Command from all Corners

Given the sheer number of devices placed under the supervision of the Control4 automation system, the homeowner would require plenty of ways to engage with the system’s control platform for the on-the-spot command over anything and everything in and around the house. Our installation engineers appropriately outfitted the residence with Control4 touchscreens which includes a combination of wall mounted and portable units. The Control4 mobile app found on smartphones and tablets, can handle the same tricks when the house owner is on the go. Naturally, our design engineers designed the automation scenarios around the client’s unique needs and comfortability with technology, but took the extra step by creating the system instructions for guests to view on an ipad.
