How do YOU Get the “Biggest, Baddest Home?”
ACS reveals what it takes to win a prestigious Integration Award from CEDIA (Part 2 of 2)
In our last blog edition, we discussed the challenges we faced, as well as the solutions we provided for a project that was recently given the “Biggest, Baddest Home” Integration Award at the CEDIA Expo ’13 in Denver. The most important part of the story, of course, is the results…
Overall this is an incredible, must-see project. Everyone who has stepped foot in this amazing home leaves with their jaw dragging on the floor.
Firstly, the dedicated A/V room saves a tremendous amount of time when an issue arises. In most cases the problem is resolved within minutes. Also, ACS is monitoring the CCTV Cameras on the Crestron touch panels and iPads. From the touch panels or any TV in the home you can select your own source so that all recordings are easily accessible. As a result, the children, staff, and home owners are able to easily use the system.
The indoor pool’s 25' barreled ceiling utilizes Sonnex amplifiers and the room sounds incredible. In addition there are 3 large outdoor zones (the main Great Lawn able to hit 94db without clipping). Over 60 outdoor speakers were installed in coordination with the landscape designer, GC, electrician and landscaper.
Home Theater – the theater features a high-end Meridian 4k projector, full surround sound with multiple subwoofers and high-end audiophile speakers. Viewers can sit in the custom leather seating or in the balcony area to enjoy the featured presentation. 8 zones of lighting in this room (including a star burst ceiling) are controlled by our system.
Water Feature – The residence features a 30' Waterfall with reflecting pool. We integrated the controls for this so that client can turn this feature on and off from his ACS Control panels.
Mirrored TVs – In the Master Bath as well as in the Spa area, we installed Seura TV's which are discretely hidden behind mirrors.
Wine Management System – the client has a large 2000 bottle wine collection and ACS provided a wine management system for inventory control.
It was definitely a challenge but the end results look and sound amazing. So much so that when Crestron announced the award contest for “Biggest, Baddest Home,” we simply had to enter. Having a satisfied, lifetime client is the real prize for our company. Winning was just icing on the cake.
