Best Integrated Home (over £250,000)
Winner: Défi Technique SA for JewelBox
A project, which despite its complexity, shows an impressive level of attention to detail that meets, if not exceeds, the client’s brief
Défi Technique SA had a tough brief to meet when the client requested the most eco-friendly and technologically advanced house in Switzerland.
The installer provided a solution using Crestron and GIRA touchscreens, which were able to integrate KNX electrical devices, HVAC, CCTV, AV and a fireplace. The multi-room audio system is based on Basalte matrix amplifiers and is controlled over KNX with iDevices and touchpanels. More than 200 circuits of lighting were installed, with most of them being controlled via DALI. The system also includes RFID door access, gate access and automated garage doors, with every command and status available on mobile devices. The media room is fitted with a projection screen and projector, which is situated in a robust Weibel electrical lift. A Bose 525 system provides 5.1 audio, and is controlled via the Crestron App.
Défi Technique SA also provided remote access monitoring, to provide the client with after-sales support and peace of mind.
