For this 18,000-square-foot home and separate guesthouse, a Crestron Control System forms the backbone with Digital Media (DM) video and audio distribution. There are 34 audio zones for the main house and guesthouse, including exterior and pool zones. The entire audio and video system is distributed via fiber-optic cabling, ensuring perfect signal integrity over long distances without electrical interference.

In all there are 22 video locations throughout the home, and all are full 1080p HD and 3-D capable. The audio and video sources, including Blu-ray, CCTV, DirecTV, gaming sources, streaming Internet audio and video, and satellite radio are controlled via three roaming Samsung 10" android tablets or from one of the 22 hand-held Crestron touch-screen remotes. In addition, there are two home computers that can be accessed from any video location. There are also five video locations where wireless USB keyboard/mouse are available to control the distributed PCs.
