Cutting-Edge Integration

Cutting-Edge Integration

A stated objective for this integration was to push the limits of what the Control4 automation system could do and to find and try new integration ideas.

Cutting-Edge Integration

Special touches in this home include 32 separate occupancy sensors that trigger room lighting, a retina scanner that permits access to the wine cellar after first changing the glass doors from translucent to clear, and an audible WAV file that, when doors open, mimics the sound effect of doors opening in the classic Star Trek series.

Cutting-Edge Integration

The clients prefer a transitional-style decor with clean lines and a neutral palette. Though the electronic integration is highly sophisticated, it was executed without a lot of visual intrusion or making the house look too "techy."
