Integrating 150+ components while retaining the beauty of the home

This extensive project integrates more than 150 of world's most advanced electronic components into one easy-to-use system that can transform the 8,000-square-foot custom house to match the whims and needs of its owner. The system combines automated actions for daily events with dozens of special settings that correspond to the homeowner's ever-changing requirements. The system's flexibility and intuitiveness is best exemplified by looking at some distinct capabilities.


To prepare the home for entertaining, the owner simply touches an "Entertain" button from any room -- and the transformation begins. In 15 seconds, preselected levels on over 100 lighting loads set the mood and guide passage throughout the home. The HVAC system cools or heats the house to a preset level. Like magic, gas fireplaces roar to life.

Music is controlled with a 16-zone PANJA whole-house system that can be accessed from any room with touch keypads or RF (radio frequency) remote controls. Every television monitor in the house can act as a video-driven jukebox, complete with actual CD cover art, making selections from a 300-disc changer.

  Home Theater

The media room features a top-of-the-line projection HDTV system, complete with 1000 total watts of surround sound. Off-air and DirectTV HDTV signals, DVD, VCR and TiVo sources offer the ultimate in flexibility. Two secondary theatre rooms contain Sony Plasma televisions are mounted like heirloom paintings above the fireplaces.

Speakers and custom subwoofers are housed discreetly in elaborate millworking. All systems are controlled through touchscreen remotes. Essentially, the home automation system can convert the house into a multiplex theater where every seat is the house's best.

The home's security function -- which integrates garage doors, lighting, a security system and more -- offers the ultimate in safety and convenience. Garage doors close automatically when night falls. The owner can monitor and adjust the level of security from anywhere around the world at any time through a telephone. The system learns the owner's lighting preferences and repeats them while in vacation mode to mimic everyday activity in the house.


These are just three of over 20 current settings -- and an unlimited number in the future. By using controls simpler than a bank ATM (and never more than five steps away), we have put the power of a security officer, disk jockey, theater manager, butler and lighting controller at the owner's fingertips.
