The interior design of this custom home is a combination of French country and transitional styles, so though the technology is sophisticated, there was a need to maintain a low profile in terms of aesthetics.
The homeowners wanted comprehensive controls and for user interfaces to be simple and intuitive for the entire family. A 10-zone Crestron Digital Media video distribution system (expandable to 16 zones) was installed, along with the CrestronTSW-750 touch panels and Core 3 graphics.
The clients wanted to have all amenities at their fingertips, with emphasis on security and lighting as well as distributed audio and video. Since the clients travel frequently, home security was a key consideration.
