The client had Crestron system in other residences and therefore we chose to use Crestron to aid familiarity with the system. We used Crestron MTX-3 handheld remotes and a bespoke iPad application for control.
In the living room we used a 75" Samsung screen mounted above the fireplace using a electrical drop mechanism bracket to ensure it could be lowered to the correct height when in use. In the kitchen we mounted a similar Samsung on an electrical pivot bracket to allow the screen to be viewed from the kitchen. We used a Triad speaker bar on each of the screens to provide front audio channels and we used a Bowers & Wilkins PV1D subwoofer in ease room for added base. We also added the existing Aquavision screen to the central system.
We use a Middle Atlantic equipment rack which could pull and swing to allow for ease of access during maintenance. We installed central video sources such as a Kaleidescape system, Kartina TV boxes and Sky HD Boxes. These were all distributed using a Crestron Digital Media system.
We integrated the Lutron lighting system onto the Crestron control devices and also the Daikin AC and heating systems. We also integrated the fireplace so everything could be controlled using the Crestron system.
