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 client wanted to achieve a complete integrated home for a realistic budget and we worked closely with the client to tailor a system which could be delivered for a circa $100,000 budget. 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 these spaces so that the speakers do not impact on the visual aesthetics of each room. There is also a motorised TV lift to conceal the TV when it is not in use.

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

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

–        A Lilin NVR (Network Video Recorder) for monitoring cameras, integrated through Control4

–        4 x Lilin Day & Night Outdoor Security Cameras

–        Ness M1 Gold Alarm System

–        Control4 Intercom Stations at the Front Gate

–        Control4 10″ In Wall Touch Screen

–        Outdoor Lighting Sensors

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.

This home is another excellent achievement by Life Style Store and an exemplary case of how modern day living should be, achieved for a very realistic budget. We were proud to have worked alongside and with the following companies on this project:

There’s an emphasis on aesthetics and artwork in this high-end northern beaches home

In this user-friendly, high-end Avalon home, daily functions are easily controlled by the Control4 home automation system. Life Style Store was involved in the build process of the multi-level Avalon house from the initial construction stage and worked with the client, interior designer and builder. “We were blessed with a well-learned and artful client, so our brief was concise with the exception that we were creatively free to plan and design the interiors of the house,” explains interior designer Edward Wong of Studio Make Made. The homeowner wanted to achieve a completely integrated home for a realistic budget and Life Style Store worked closely with the client to tailor a system that could be delivered for a budget of approximately $100,000. 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 these spaces so that the speakers do not impact on the visual aesthetics of each room. There is also a motorised TV lift to conceal the TV when it is not in use. 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. 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-inch touchscreen, allowing control of each lighting circuit, lighting scene or any other connected device within the home. 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 most difficult component was the fireplace with its concealed pop-up TV,” says Edward. “This feature joinery houses an EcoSmart burner and a motorised lift that raises the TV via the Control4 system. The whole unit is finished in natural stone, including stone drawer fronts.” This home is another excellent achievement by Life Style Store and an exemplary case of how modern living should be, achieved for a very realistic budget. “It was a pleasure working with Life Style Store,” says Edward. “There was good reliability from the team and their expertise with the complex systems gave us confidence with the build. The result, along with the Control4 system, added technology befitting the modern design of the house.”
