Overview

Life Style Store were involved in the building process for this house from the initial design stage. Our aim was to deliver a user friendly high end home where the repetitious chores of the day are controlled by the home automation system. The home automation system is complemented by a premium Home Theatre and Multi-Room Audio-Visual system which includes a selection of high quality reputable brands.

Control4 plays a major role in the automation of multiple components and is operated from Touchscreens, Portable Tablets, Phones, Remote controls and many schedules, timers and sensors. Schedules are used to control as much as possible to avoid having to manually turn things on and off when desired. In fact, with the assistance of the client we were able to break down the daily routine into segments of day and night processes which also enable actions to repeat steps every day.

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

–        Air Conditioning

–        Heated Floors with morning and evening schedules

–        Heated Towel Rails with morning and evening schedules

–        Motorised Blinds & Curtains

–        Motorised Vergola (Manual Control & Automatic Rain Sensor Activation)

–        Automated Lighting

–        Ceiling Fans

–        Outdoor Heaters

–        Front Door (Monitored by Ness M1 Gold)

–        Garage Door (Monitored by Ness M1 Gold)

–        Front Driveway Gate (Monitored by Ness M1 Gold)

–        Front Pedestrian Gate (Monitored by Ness M1 Gold)

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

–        A Wirepath DVR for monitoring cameras, integrated through Control4

–        Day & Night Indoor and Outdoor Security Cameras

–        NESS M1 Gold Alarm System

–        NESS Access control (Fingerprint reader, Pin number keypad and Swipe cards)

–        Control4 Intercom Stations x 2

–        Control4 Touchscreens with Camera x 3

–        Outdoor Lighting Sensors wired to Control4 I/O Extenders

The Entertainment System includes a dedicated home theatre, a living room 5.1 system and multi-room entertainment.

The custom theatre room features a Sim2 Nero 3D Projector, 2.35:1 Prismasonic Lens, 2.35 Screen Technics  Cinemascope Screen with Electric Side Masking, a Marantz Reference A/V Processor, Anthem Power Amplifiers and Paradigm Speakers and Subwoofers.

The Living Room features a 75” Samsung LED Television, a Marantz Premium A/V Processor, Moon Mono Power Amplifiers, an Anthem 5 Channel Amplifier, Martin Logan Summit X Main Speakers, Martin Logan Vanquish In-Ceiling Centre and Rear Speakers and a Paradigm Subwoofer

The Multi-room system features a Control4 16 x16 Audio Matrix System and multiple Anthem power amplifiers combined with a Leaf HDMI Matrix System driving internal and external audio-visual zones.

Lighting Control is handled by the latest Control4  “Panelised Lighting System” incorporating almost 30 Relay and Dimmer modules, with over 25 lighting keypads and multiple touch screen interfaces allowing control of over 200 electronic control or lighting circuits.

At Life Style Store we took the time to consider both the current lifestyle and future desires of the client and design a system which exceeds the expectations of all household members. To be able to simply wake up in the morning, walk bare foot on the tiles enjoying the warm floor leading to a morning shower ending with warm towels in your own home is resort style living. And just as you sit at the dining table for breakfast the blockout blinds open and a subtle light fills the room to begin the day as the TV turns on to the Morning Show for some early morning viewing.

After a day at work, entering the house using either the remote controls or access control will grant access and disarm the alarm activating a welcome home scene. The floors and towels again will be at the desired temps for showers and the movies or music ready for selection in the desired areas.

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 honoured to receive the award of Control4 Residential Project of the Year (2013 – 2014) as awarded by Control4 USA at the Australian dealer awards for 2014. At these awards we also received Control4 Platinum Dealer Status for the 3rd consecutive year.

LIVING MADE EASY

Repetitive daily actions in this high-end home are now simply controlled by a home automation system

Imagine waking up in the morning, walking barefoot on warm floor tiles towards your shower, drying off with toasty-warm towels and as you sit at the breakfast table, block-out blinds open and a subtle light fills the room as the TV turns on. After work, entering the house using remote controls or access control grants access and disarms the alarm, activating a welcome home scene. The floors and towels again will be at the desired temperature for showers and the movies or music ready for selection in the desired areas. No, this isn’t a five-star resort, but a daily reality for these fortunate St Ives homeowners.

Life Style Store was involved in the building process of this family home for this husband and wife and their three young children from the design stages until the end of the process, in conjunction with the home builder and architect from Chateau Architects + Builders. The aim was to have a user-friendly, high-end home with the repetitious actions of the day controlled by the automation system, while remaining easy and obvious in its operation for visitors and carers to operate. “We have achieved this with logical programming and consistency in the way the homeowner wanted to have the house operate,” says Life Style Store managing director John Kranitis. The inclusion of audio and visual systems includes a selection of high-quality, reputable brands. “This not only offered the homeowner the ability to get the content that was shared to any display in the house but it also delivered it at a high-quality level,” says John. “The equipment and the cabling infrastructure were all relative to one another and the end result is exceptional.”

The management of the system via Control 4 was important to combine a centralised system in a reliable form. “There is a lot of technology happening and to simplify it was really important,” says John. “The biggest test was when we needed to hand over the system to the parents of the homeowners and have them drive the system. This highlighted the importance of logical programming and that the initial system design was correct from the outset. The final result was that they were able to operate the system immediately from any location once they became familiar with how to navigate the Control4 system remote and touchscreen interface. They particularly loved the fact that the Control4 interface was enlarged on the TV screens all through the house where they would want to view it.” Control4 plays a major role in the automation of multiple components from touchscreens, portable tablets and phones, remote controls and many schedules, timers and sensors. Schedules are used to control as much as possible to avoid having to turn things on and off when desired. “In fact, with the assistance of the client, we were able to break down the daily routine into segments of day and night processes, which reduces repetitious steps every day,” says John. “This project was a challenge from the start and to end up with the result we have is a perfect example of a selection of the best products installed by Life Style Store. “We have taken the time to consider both the current lifestyle and future desires of the client and designed a system which exceeds the expectations of all household members.”
