The client for this project wanted an integrated home where each subsystem, both inside and outside the home, could be controlled by iPhone and iPad mini. Find a home technology professional near you.
The system incorporates six separate audio/video zones: living room, game/rec room, master bedroom, exercise room, craft room and this outdoor BBQ area. For audio content, each AV zone is equipped with a Sonos Playbar and subwoofer to give him a surround sound listening experience from a full range of Internet-based content sources including Pandora, Spotify and AM/FM radio.
Automated operations include window shades, thermostat and fan control, all managed via iOS application.
Each of the video zones pull video content from a centralized AV rack containing two DirecTV receivers, an Apple TV and a Blu-ray player. The rack is housed in a wine closet, so the rack had to be designed to fit aesthetically within that environment.
