Best Integrated Home (from £30,000 - £100,000)
Winner: SMC for Chelsea Family Home
SMC provided an incredibly flexible and technically impressive installation for this family home in Chelsea.
The owners commissioned the company to add more value to their house which they had recently put on the market. With this in mind the system required huge versatility and the audio platform installed works to create ambience during house viewings while also being suitable for new occupants.
Included in the integration is a dedicated media room and the further integration of the lighting controls and HVAC meant that the property never looked like a show home but instead radiated a homely harm.
A strong emphasis was placed on security and the CCTV is viewable through both the television and AMX touchscreens in the property. There is a secure video entry system, again, operated through the AMX system for both the front and rear of the home.
As the soon-to-be owner of the property was an unknown, SMC laid CAT5 cabling for HD and Ethernet connectivity allowing complete freedom of choice in their home entertainment needs. The integrated control was very important to the client who has received positive feedback from the selling agent who sees definite added value to the property.
