Media Room, Home Entertainment & Automation


This home is another excellent achievement by Life Style Store and an exemplary case of how modern day living should be! Life Style Store were involved in the building process for this multi level house from the initial construction stage. We worked with the client, the interior designer and the builder to design and deliver a user friendly high end home where the daily functions are easily controlled by the Control4 home automation system.

The Dining Room

The client wanted to achieve a complete integrated home for a realistic budget and we worked closely with the client to tailor this system.

The finished aesthetics of the job were extremely important to the builder and the client, especially within the main living areas, therefore Stealth Acoustics “Invisible” speakers have been installed within this space so that the speakers do not impact on the visual aesthetics of this room.

the balcony

Enjoy your outdoor area and listen to your favourite music! We installed Paradigm 8″ in-ceiling speakers, powered by an Anthem room amplification and controlled using a Control4 zone control.

The Master Bedroom

We installed a motorised TV lift to conceal the TV when it is not in use.

Access & Home Control

The property also features the following items for managing and monitoring the security of the property:

Lighting Control is handled by the latest Control4 “Panelised Lighting System” incorporating more than 50 Relay and Dimmer channels, 33 lighting and control keypads and a Control4 10″ touch screen allowing control of each lighting circuit, lighting scene or any other connected device within the home.

Lighting & Security

Protecting and monitoring the artwork within the home was of critical importance to the client so pressure sensors were installed for each piece of artwork.

These sensors connect to the Ness alarm system and are monitored by Control4 with instant SMS notifications of any change in pressure.

Lighting for each of these pieces was also of significant importance and a lot of time was taken in planning an effective lighting and lighting control system throughout the home and external garden areas.

Control4 plays a major role in the automation of multiple components and is operated from Touchscreens, Phones, Remote controls and many schedules, timers and sensors.

The Control4 Home Automation System allows the client to have control of:

  • Air Conditioning
  • Motorised Blinds
  • Automated Lighting
  • External Heaters
  • Front Door & Front Gate (Monitored by Ness M1 Alarm)
  • Pond & Water Feature Control (Monitored by Ness M1 Alarm)
  • Garage Door (Monitored by Ness M1 Alarm)
  • Security Alarm
  • Security Cameras
Budget: $100,000
