Best Integrated Home (under £100,000)
Winner: SmartComm for The Darlands
This was a competitive category in the Awards. The winner is an ‘aesthetically stunning’ contemporary renovation of a property built in the 1930s.
Achieving the perfect integration of the latest custom installation technology into a traditionally built property is never an easy task and there were many practical and technology challenges involved. However Smartcomm’s client had a strong vision for the property and was willing to devote significant time and resource to achieve the stunning results.
The home automation system perfectly complements family life. There is a Crestron system that offers control of the lighting, curtains and blinds, audio and security systems throughout the property. This is complemented by a Kaleidescape music and DVD server that simplifies management and storage of the owner’s extensive collection of movies and music.
An increasingly important function of a home automation system is to keep a property secure. A Siedle video and audio entry system is integrated with a CCTV camera network that monitors strategically important locations around the property to provide the owner with the ultimate monitoring solution for maximum peace of mind.
“We were delighted to win our second consecutive CEDIA Award,” says Sadia Khatoon of Smartcomm. “This was a highly competitive category and our designers and engineers worked hard to ensure this was an outstanding project and it is great to be recognised and rewarded in this way.”
