A Home for Entertaining

The client purchased a nearly-built spec home and made substantial modifications. They wanted a single system to control the security, security cameras, lighting integration and HVAC, pool and spa, as well as audio and video. The challenge: The system had to be as simple as possible, so the client and their children could operate it with ease. Crestron Electronics provided the ideal, user-friendly solution.

The Crestron system fully controls twenty-two zones of audio, video, fourteen zones of thermostat control (with an on screen scheduler) full house Lutron Homeworks lighting control system, control of a Honeywell Vista security system, sixteen security cameras viewed from every Crestron touch screen, and a Jandy pool and spa controller.

Our client’s family is very active, which called for wanting to play sports outside night and day. The Crestron system controls the security, security cameras, lighting and music throughout their outdoor living space. The property includes a football field, basketball court, pool, pool house, and multiple terraces.

The clients envisioned having a theater where they could entertain family and friends —yet not have the sound infiltrate other areas of the residence. For example, the theater had to be able to sustain high noise levels without disturbing guests in the formal living room located directly above. This required special acoustical work and multiple forms of treatment to prevent the sound from traveling through the ceiling or up the spiral-stair hall outside the theater.
