Life Style Store was involved in the building process of this multi-level house in Cammeray from the initial construction stage. The company worked with the client and the designer/builder, Chris Knierim from Code Green, to design and deliver a user-friendly, high-end home where daily functions are easily controlled by a Control4 home automation system. “We wanted a modern home that could span the ages,” says homeowner Felicity, who shares the home with her husband, Will, three children and Max, their Labrador. “The purpose of our development was to build a new family home where our young family can grow. We also wanted something that would last. When we completed each stage it was exciting, but the most exciting part was when the project actually started and we began demolishing the existing home.” Their sloping block posed a number of design and construction challenges. “We wanted to maximise the north aspect and our main living is in this part of the house,” explains Felicity. “We also wanted to ensure that our bedrooms were all on one fl oor and that the guest wing was separate. Maximising the block, taking advantage of the north aspect and view, space and separate living areas were all very important considerations in the build.”

Felicity and Will planned to achieve a completely integrated home for a realistic budget and Life Style Store worked closely with the family to tailor a system that could be delivered for their budget of approximately $150,000. “Technology
implementation was important given the calibre of home we were building and the integration of technology in our lives,”
says Felicity. The finished aesthetics were extremely important to the builder and the family, especially within the main living areas. Therefore, Stealth Acoustics ‘Invisible’ speakers were installed in these spaces so that the speakers do not impact on the visual aesthetics of each room. The box-type speakers in the bedrooms are concealed within false air conditioning grilles so that they don’t visually detract in these rooms. 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 control of airconditioning; motorised louvres, blinds and curtains; automated lighting; and numerous monitored security functions. For security and access control the property features a Lilin network video recorder for monitoring and recording the external security cameras (integrated through Control4); a Ness M1 premium alarm system; Control4 intercom stations at the front gate and main entry; three Control4 10-inch in-wall touchscreens and outdoor lighting sensors. The wine cellar features a biometric fingerprint access reader for restricting and monitoring access into this space.

These products for the security aspect of the property are all managed and monitored by Control4. Lighting control is handled by the latest Control4 panelised lighting system incorporating more than 100 relay and dimmer channels, 23 lighting keypads and three Control4 10-inch touchscreens, allowing control of each lighting circuit, lighting scene or any other connected device within the home. “It is really nice to lie in bed and turn the house off without having to get up to turn light switches off,” says Felicity. A comprehensive, fully monitored Pakedge wired and wireless network was installed to support all the connected devices. It includes an advanced router, multiple POE Network switches and wireless access points to cover all internal and external areas of the home.
