Why Every Home Can Benefit
From Becoming a Smart Home:
A Case Study: Vaucluse, Sydney.
Not all homes decide to be smart homes from the very beginning. In this case study, we will be looking at the installation of smart home systems in a stunning mansion located in Vaucluse, with to die for views of the Sydney Skyline!
SMARTHOMEWORKS were approached by clients who were halfway through the wiring before they decided to implement some smart home integration.
Luckily, this wasn’t a problem, as our team can implement a smart home solution at any point of the build process.
We can even turn a fully completed property into a smart home increasing its quality and value, as smart homes are a more attractive prospect for buyers and renters.
Let’s take a look at how we integrated a Dynalite lighting system, Antumbra panels, and Control4 System to pull it all together, inclusive of security, pool, heating, AC and more.
The finished product made our client one happy customer; they now have a luxurious & automated ease of living, with a property that instantly increased in value and stood out from the neighbouring homes.
The biggest issue the client thought they faced was the fact that the project had already half of its wiring completed.
The current electrician on the job was a little over his head in terms of automation. Having worked with us before, he suggested that the client get an actual integrator on board to help finish the project.
For the electrician on the job, SMARTHOMEWORKS was their first choice, as our documentation was beyond what anyone in the industry provides.
We calmed any worries the client had with a ‘For Construction’ document, which included complete plans, and a schedule for the remainder of their project. Allowing them the peace of mind and comfort they were looking for.
THE CONTROL SYSTEM
As mentioned, on this system, we opted for the Control4 System as the central component for their home automation.
Control4 is a popular choice and widely recommended by our team, thanks to their seamless integration, floor to ceiling. We wanted to provide the homeowner total, user-friendly control over every feature, and Control4 does precisely that.
The Control4 Home Automation System offers among other things, the following features:
- Control of lighting (in this case a Dynalite system)
- Alarm and CCTV checks
- Interaction through the front door intercom
- Control of the entertainment system
- Thermostat adjustments
- Pool & Spa Control
- Complete control of your home AV systems and house music from one remote or App
