Essex, United Kingdom
The owners of this redeveloped 4-storey property in a suburb of Essex wanted a reliable home automation system that also had a wow factor for the control of their home’s unique lighting design.
In this project, the overarching control system is Control4, which enabled IndigoZest to deliver a pleasing and easy-to-use whole home automation system, accessible from in-wall and tabletop touchscreens, smartphones and tablet apps, and through elegant remote controls.
The sheer size of this project and integration between the internal and external areas required a robust, secure and reliable network that could support all home elements. The customer also worked from home, so the system was designed and built in such a way that network traffic was segregated so did not slow down their conference calls, as well as ensuring their internet demands didn’t have a negative impact on the performance of the AV system
The lighting design was a key feature of this property and given the size, it made sense to have smart lighting throughout, enabling stunning lighting scenes that truly showed off the beauty of the building, both internally and externally.
Working with designers at The Lighting Design Studio, IndigoZest produced external and internal lighting concepts, that included layers of light, with featured and accent lighting, all controlled from a KNX lighting system. Vitrum glass keypads were chosen for their function and style and they allow for multiple scene control.
“The owners of this property put their trust in us to deliver beyond their expectations and gave us the creative freedom to build something truly spectacular.
Colour is a great way to add that wow factor to a lighting system and this was beautifully created for areas such as the gym, swimming pool, cinema and wine cellar using multi-colour LED strips.
As part of this project, Ivory Egg supplied various elements of the KNX solution. When selecting products, Ivory Egg always provide great support and guidance, using their extensive product knowledge to help us create the best smart homes for our customers.“
