As the winner of a “Healthcare Design Award”, Maids Moreton Hall a 60 bedroom care home required a Cinema and multi-room music system in keeping with the luxury finish found throughout the property.
As with all commercial projects the number of people using the equipment was one of the main considerations. For this reason the most intuitive touchscreen keypads and cinema controls were selected.

The building process
The original hall was carefully restored to its former beauty with a state-of-the-art extension to house all the residents’ accommodation.
Prior to commencement the original extension was demolished and the hall stripped right back to the brickwork.
Cyberhomes were introduced to the project during the first fix phase but were able to incorporate the existing cable infrastructure into their system design.
Drawings were produced for the Building Contractor and Electrician and second-fix installation, programming and commissioning were carried out by the Cyberhomes team.
Multi-room music system
Home Cinema Room
Cyberhomes were asked to design and install a Cinema system in the existing building. A systematic process was followed to select the HD Projector, Projection Screen and 5.1 Surround Sound system which took into consideration a number of client and room requirements. The selected equipment ensured the best possible audio and visual performance for the budget.
As with the multi-room audio system due to the amount of potential users which include residents, staff and guests the Cinema room had to be very reliable and extremely easy to operate.
A Control4 room controller was selected to integrate the cinema equipment including the projector, home cinema amplifier, Blu-ray player and Sky receiver. In addition to a Control4 hand-held remote control which was programmed to operate all of the equipment a Control4 three button in wall keypad was used to automatically turn the “Blu-ray” on, turn “SKY” on, or turn the “Room Off”.
A NuVo multi-room audio system was selected to distribute DAB radio and stored iTunes music throughout the building.
It is possible to play individual music tracks independently in all areas as well as linking zones for a 'party event' situation.
A range of in-ceiling, in-wall and on-wall speakers were chosen for the various areas for the perfect design and performance balance.
Each room included a NuVo full-colour Touch Pad, these provide a very user-friendly full system control, from a sleek, easy-to-navigate touch screen.
