A prestige new-home build provided the opportunity for a blank canvas upon which to paint a smart home artwork replete with a fully-integrated solution to serve a family with teenage children – all of whom can enjoy access via their own, individualised app controls.
A grand entrance features garden lighting activated by the clients’ proximity to home at dusk, two integrated dome cameras for security, a door station, and a hallway lit with feature pendants, downlights, and low-level lighting for a warm and inviting feel.
This rustic-modern family kitchen features Lutron control of pendant lights, LED tape, and downlights. The multi-room audio is provided through architectural ceiling speakers and enterprise grade wireless access points provide outstanding Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home.

The garden lighting scheme is operated astronomically by Lutron – meaning the home control system knows when it is dusk 365 days of the year, so the client never need adjustment timers. Cameras complement the fully integrated security alarm system with door contacts, passive infrared sensors (PIRs) and shock sensors to round out a robust security solution. The TV aerial and satellite dish provide all the video services this family could wish for, delivered throughout the home and controlled by a single app.
A freestanding gym with TV and multi-room audio provides all the necessary entertainment whilst working out, and a shower is provided by means of a smart heating system. Lutron lighting controls have been included to allow the lighting scheme to be tailored for any type of workout.
Per the overall entrance lighting, the front porch features proximity-activated wall lights with astronomical control. The door station features a 4MP camera with two-way audio and motion alerts, and enables the client to answer the door from anywhere in the world via an app on their mobile phone.
An elegant keypad enables the client to easily set their home’s systems to the mood of their choice. With simple engraving, even guests can make good use of the lighting system with ease.
Rather than searching the house for the tablet or reaching for the nearest smartphone to operate a service, a dedicated in-wall iPad also allows for control of the whole home via the Savant app.
In addition to forming part of the feature lighting, the low-level lighting is triggered upon activation of the fire alarm. This provides a low-level, soft lighting scheme enabling safe exit whatever the time of the day. A security keypad arms and disarms the alarm system, which conversely triggers the heating and cooling system to either operate or shut down depending upon whether the client is entering or exiting the home.
