5 levels of pure luxury overlooking Sydney Harbour from one of Australia’s most coveted streets only begins to describe the tremendous appeal of this property. With an attention to detail that is rarely seen, this house was meticulously constructed over 18 months which gave the Life Style Store team the perfect opportunity to stipulate and create an automation system to compliment the flawless build. Exposed concrete ceiling upstairs and hardwood ceiling throughout the corridors meant that all aspects of infrastructure had to be carefully planned and executed before the ceilings were covered. Working closely with the customer and trades gave Life Style Store to opportunity to wire the house for the design brief whilst also allowing redundancies and future technologies enabling the automation system to grow with the owners requirements.

The owners are no strangers to automation or Life Style Store, having had their previous two homes automated by us with more modest systems prior to the construction of their dream home. The client wanted a system that integrated into the home seamlessly without detracting from the incredible attention to detail that the construction team had put in over the build. An impressive plant room serves as the brain of the house, including the main rack, solar equipment and an incredible entropy management system which equalises the temperature throughout the whole house by storing energy in the pool for use at a later time.

Control4 was a natural choice for an ambitious project like this, with all pillars of electronic design covered by the family of products from C4. Extensive use of custom programming from triggers was essential to create the ‘electronic butler’ experience with automated occupancy and task based lighting and comfort options. While traditionally the extensive use of keypads throughout a home facilitates control and convenience; we are able to remove the physical button press entirely through the use of intelligent sensors and custom programming.

Twenty-one fully populated 8 channel dimmers and five 8 channel relays provide all the lighting control in the house through 56 keypads and 24 sensors. Four 10” inwall touchscreens allow macular control over aspects of the house on each level, with custom built home screens in teh new Control4 OS3 operating system. Music and playlists are integrated to relevant buttons, both physical keypad buttons and on touch screens via the home screens on OS3, This reduction in steps makes entertaining a seamless escalation, without the need to access an app, or dive through menus to find a playlist.

Speaking of apps, the combination of Control and Intercom anywhere has meant that monitoring the house is a simple task, even remotely. The cameras are integrated to Control4, so a live view is always available, the History agent reads from the Ness M1 alarm, and the Control4 app will let you know if a door or gate has been left open for an unusually long period of time. This allows complete visibility to events within the house and provides peace of mind when the kids or guests have left the home, ensuring that the house is locked and secure.
