Smart Home Show Home
Avicci were instructed by a local developer to make the Show home for an exclusive development of 15 luxurious properties in Nottingham into a Smart Home.
This uniquely designed 4 bedroom property is now packed with the latest technology, but most importantly the infrastructure is future ready so in years to come equipment can be replaced to suit the requirements of the home owner.
High Speed Network and Wifi Coverage
Hard wired data points feature in every room throughout the property along with two Cisco Wireless Access Points, Netgear Gigabit Ethernet switch and a Draytek router. All this equipment provides a stable, robust, high speed network with seamless wireless coverage capable of handling the most demanding needs of todays connected world.
Multiroom High Definition Video
The video equipment is installed in the centralised rack and distributed throughout the property via a 4x4 HDBaseT matrix. This enables viewing of the connected devices in 4 rooms simultaneously or independently. So a typical example of this would be the kids are in the living room watching a Blu-Ray movie whilst mum is in the bedroom watching her favourite Sky HD channel with no loss of picture quality.
Discrete KEF ceiling speakers throughout the property connected to Sonos amplifiers provide full home entertainment. whether you want to listen to the digital radio in the kitchen in the morning or stream your favourite music service in all rooms when you have that moving in party.
The living room features a discrete 5.1 surround sound system ideal for those lazy weekends when you want to watch a family movie with the kids, or settle down in the evening to watch your favourite soaps it provides excellent Dolby Digital surround sound.
All of this equipment may seem a bit daunting? No need to worry as the Control4 system takes care of all the fiddly processes. If you want to watch something you simply press the "watch" button on the dedicated remote control or smart phone app and a list of the available devices appears for you to select, once selected the phone or remote then becomes the controller for that device.
The system is also connected to the electric garage door and blinds allowing for simple operation and scheduled events.
Imagine your morning alarm going something like this, your favourite music slowly fades up while the blinds open exposing the exceptional views, you walk downstairs to the kitchen and the TV is already on the news channel so you can catch up with the latest stories.
Four CCTV cameras cover the perimeter of the property allowing you to check on your home from inside or while you are away via a smart phone app. Offering piece of mind knowing that you can check in any time.
