This project was undertaken in two phases. Phase one was to install a central control system and integrate it into the lighting, heating and CCTV systems. The homeowner wanted a single point of control for all the technology in the house and the use of a Control4 based solution allowed us to do that. We also installed a Lutron lighting control system which featured 47 custom-engraved wallplates—”Now I can simply switch all the lights in the house off with one button last thing at night.”
For phase two the homes’ AV systems were upgraded and integrated into the Control4 system. There were six zones of audio provided by Sonos and a 4K-ready 8×8 video matrix was installed to allow distribution of video from Sky boxes, Blu-ray players and a Playstation PS4 to eight TVs around the home. When 4K content becomes more readily available the source equipment can be upgraded to 4K versions and the matrix is ready to handle the increased resolution.
