The client for this project was already familiar with home technology systems, having a comprehensive system installed in another of their properties.
With this in mind, they were keen to include a high level of system integration throughout the house, to include almost every room.
SONA designed a comprehensive solution for this Alderley Edge home technology installation, with Lutron lighting and motorised curtains/blinds, high definition video and stereo audio distribution, two home cinema installations and an iPad based control system for one-touch operation of all features.
In addition to the systems we designed and installed, SONA also provided integration with the gate system, garage doors and door entry system, which provides the client with the ability to lock and unlock the doors of their home and view live CCTV camera feeds directly on their iPads.
To remain sympathetic to the interior scheme, in all rooms with exception of the media room, televisions have been seamlessly integrated into the room, within custom mirror frames, or mounted behind a custom mirror installation in the gym, which covers an entire wall and conceals a 65″ TV. When not in use, these TVs remain completely invisible from view.
Audio from all video sources, including two Sky+HD receivers, two Apple TVs and a Blu-Ray player is played through in-ceiling and in-wall speakers – and a SONOS player provides access to online music content.
Discrete in-ceiling speakers are used in almost all rooms, although the formal living room and media room feature high performance Artcoustic systems to provide extremely high quality audio playback for entertaining and movie playback respectively.
