CEDIA 2013 Integrated Home Finalist: Dream Home Realized

Dream Home Realized

This 11,000-square-foot dream home cried out for a home automation system that was both comprehensive and easy to use. Controls include audio/video, lighting, motorized shades, climate control, security, fountains, patio heaters and pool/spa — all under the command of a Crestron system controlled via in-wall touch panels and iPads. Find a home technology professional near you.

Dream Home Realized

The system includes 14 video zones with MTX-3 Crestron control as well as integrated iPads that can be adjusted to control any zone locally.

Dream Home Realized

The lighting system is seamlessly integrated and allows users to modify lighting scene levels using the Crestron touch panels and iPads. Overall room lighting can be adjusted in specific increments by means of remotes or, for even more discrete lighting control, users can adjust lighting in specific areas individually then save the overall lighting scene.

Dream Home Realized

The second-floor family room has a large flat screen as well as two smaller TVs for watching sports.
