Residential Project

Campbells Bay Residence

Whole home installation of Audio & Video Distribution, Lighting Control, Security and Access Control, Network Systems & Electrical

This project won several awards in the 2016 New Zealand Registered Master Builders House of the Year Awards.

THE SYSTEM:

Audio and Video Distribution

There are 10 zones of audio throughout the house with multiple sources of audio that the owners are able to listen to. Our programming enables the owners to play audio via an ipad and/or remote, each dedicated to a specific area of the house. There are also discrete outdoor speakers spread throughout the garden, which add to the atmosphere when entertaining outdoors. In terms of future-proofing this house, zones that don’t currently have speakers were cabled for, in the event of it being an additional audio zone in the future.

The video is distributed by a 4K Matrix Switcher which is integrated with an RTI control system, enabling video and control signals to be sent to the televisions in each location.

Lighting Control

A Lutron Lighting control system was used in this home, as it is reliable and provides great energy savings, beneficial for a residence of this size. Lutron can be monitored and easily allows for changes to be made to the functionality of the system remotely.

Security and Access

This home has extensive intrusion detection coverage and protection. There are over 20 zones throughout the property that are part of the alarm and access control system. This system includes monitoring of windows and external doors, which will detect if a window or door has been left open when setting the alarm. Also, the alarm will sound if the window or door is tampered with from the outside in by an intruder.  There are smoke and heat detectors throughout the house and garage, having these set up through automation will reduce false alarms from, for example, burnt toast and exhaust fumes.

The security and access system interfaces with the control system to allow others access to the property via a touch screen in the kitchen. The pedestrian gate locks are also monitored, with entry via a keypad at each gate.

The surveillance system was kept to a minimum here as it didn’t suit the style of house, however, the extensive alarm and access control system combats this regarding intruders. The house is cabled for additional cameras in the future.

Network

The Network System in the house is not as extensive as other properties that we have done; however, what we have provided, provides good wireless network coverage for the house and outdoor area.

Electrical
