Greenwich, CT Integration Inside and Out
Waterfront Home, Westport, CT
This gorgeous waterfront home boasts beautiful views of a private beach and cove. The home has a wall of windows so the view is unobstructed. With so much natural light flooding the home, it was necessary for window treatments. Because of the size and location of some of the windows, the clients required the shades be motorized so that with a push of a button the common living areas could be protected from the glaring sun. The motorized window treatments are integrated into the Lutron Homeworks QS lighting system. The lighting system is also controlled via the Savant Control System which allows the homeowner to access her music, video, security cameras and HVAC controls from her iPhone or iPads.
The home also has a Panasonic phone system for intercomming between rooms and for paging purposes.
The client was looking for a fully integrated Savant home automation system complete with multiple zones of audio, local video systems, Lutron QS whole-house lighting, custom Fiber-Optic lighting control, HVAC control, Lutron Sivoia-QS motorized roller shades, generator control, pond-water motion jet control, security system monitoring and control, and motion activated video surveillance cameras.
The home is located on a 142-acre property that backs up to a nature preserve. They wanted to use the cameras not only for security purposes, but also to be alerted of an animal’s presence.
Being able to control their home from mobile devices was a must-have for our clients, especially for remote control when they plan to travel. These very tech savvy clients planned to use the Savant system to its full potential by integrating as much control as physically possible.
