As part of the renovation of this residence consisting of 8 bedrooms, media room and gym spread across a main house and 3 guest suites, we designed a technology system comprised of:
- 32 areas of distributed audio with integrated Spotify and internet radio audio streams
- 9 televisions with localised cable and Apple TV feeds
- 300 lighting control circuits
- Enterprise grade wired and wireless networks
Due to the dispersal of buildings across the property and the fact that the cable drops to each area were limited, we decided to install localised networking, control and A/V equipment and use IP controllers to control them as one.
We utilised Araknis’ edge switches and wireless access points, Savant’s IP automation controllers and Pioneer AV Receivers to create localised areas for each of the bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, allowing control of two seperate zones of audio and a single zone of video. As a result of the design, users can stream music and video directly to each of the zones from the Savant control app on their smartphone.
For the common areas we utilised Savant’s IP audio system, which also allows users to either add their streaming music account to the system for native control or to stream from their smartphone via AirPlay.
