Connaught Place Penthouse, Hyde Park- London
This home in Central London used the latest smart home technology to allow all the Crestron components, from lighting, heating, blinds, curtain control and heating to be controlled using integrated voice control. This smart home encompassed the latest Crestron smart home technology to deliver an outstanding user experience for its occupants.
Overlooking the stunning scenery of London’s Hyde Park, this luxurious three-bedroom Marble Arch apartment is a cut above the rest. Its rich, deluxe interior and impressive high ceilings set the perfect scene for the ultimate in luxury living. As one of their most premium installations, London-based integration specialists, IntelliCasa, were entrusted with this exclusive lifestyle technology upgrade.
Having worked with IntelliCasa in the past, the homeowner requested a future-proof and easy-to-use system that replaces the existing lighting and AV solution, which the homeowner found difficult to use. The new system also needed to incorporate HVAC and security technologies. IntelliCasa, therefore, recommended Crestron technology because it could provide the simplicity, flexibility and intuitive functionalities required for the project.
By using Crestron lighting control and motorized shading solutions Intellicasa were able to deliver precise, quiet, one-touch control of electric and natural light for years in this Central London Smart Home. The motors are subjected to rigorous testing at maximum torque. The manufacturers meticulously monitor speed, torque, current, voltage, position and noise to ensure our motors maintain their specs. They were also combined with the Crestron advanced entertainment, climate, and security controls, so you can control everything in your home anytime, anywhere, from elegant touch screens or your favourite smart devices.
This smart home technological design incorporated integrating Amazon Alexa to enable Crestron to synchronise to active daily tasks/themes. As the day begins this Central London smart home allows the user to ask Alexa to activate ‘morning theme’ for the blinds to slowly open, lights to go up, with a warm shower running waiting for them to start the day! Voice operated automation IntelliCasa’s integration solution was built upon a Crestron 3-Series® processor which, due to its revolutionary engineering and intelligence unifies the various components throughout the home. This allows for full control of the lighting, heating, curtains, blinds, CCTV and AV via Crestron HR150 hand-held remotes and 10-inch TSW-1060 touchscreens. Bespoke Crestron Cameo C2NI-CB keypads manage the lighting to enable simple control to reflect the mood or usage of the rooms, as well as being individually suited to match each interior. Entertainment was a key element for the client. Crestron DigitalMedia™ and a Crestron CEN-NSP-1 Network Stream Player were chosen to provide the highest-quality performance, creating the perfect home cinema and entertainment space within the owner’s home. The Crestron CEN-NSP-1 Network Stream Player provides multiple options for sharing music from streaming devices and listening to internet radio through the property’s extensive audio system.
Now, effortlessly connected with Amazon Alexa if you want to set the mood for an intimate dinner, or pump up the volume of your favourite song, you only have to ask. It’s your home, responding to your voice. This Central London smart home technology allows your home to respond to the occupants every need.
