Surrey, United Kingdom
The owners of this stunning architecturally designed home in Surrey had a very clear vision for a contemporary home that included smart home automation while also blending into the surroundings. The smart home solutions delivered by the integrator, IndigoZest, are both sensitive to the building style and deliver a seamless living experience.
The overarching home automation platform is Control4 with KNX used to give the flexibility required for the integration of each different solution. All of the social spaces feature in-ceiling speakers, TVs, motorised blinds, lighting and heating control.
The lighting is controlled with Theben DM 8-2 T dimmer modules as well as internal and external PIRs which were programmed to provide low-level lighting when activated at night. The front-end lighting control is via a mixture of Zennio TMD 4 keypads with custom icons, and Zennio Z35 touchpanels with programmed icons for lighting scenes and individual light load control.
The blinds and curtains throughout the property are controlled with Theben JM 8 T blind modules, which are operated via the custom icons on the Zennio keypads within the room, or via the Control4 touch screens and mobile app.
The Basement Cinema was designed with the family’s needs in mind and has become a much-used space by the whole family with plenty of children’s movie parties and adult sporting events viewed from the comfort of the 6-seater cinema design or from the bar at the back which created another use for the room.
“This home was about ensuring that all of the smart home elements worked seamlessly together. We worked with Ivory Egg to supply the products because of their extensive knowledge, excellent technical support and fast delivery and response times. Their knowledge of a vast array of products and brands ensured that we used quality products that would provide the most reliable solutions as well as the contemporary finish required by the homeowner.“
