Having a modern, smart-home with all the latest technology shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on design or aesthetics.
This inner-city residence was built from the ground up with smarts in mind – the homeowner wanted the ability to control everything in the home, including lights, blinds, AV, climate and everything in between. The Kayder team worked closely with the designer and architect to design a complete system that was powerful yet invisible.
The automation system from Crestron enhances every area of the four-storey home. When the family wants to watch a movie in their home cinema, they only need to get comfortable on the lounges and automatically the lights slowly turn off, the movie channel turns on, the screen adjusts to the right size and they’re ready to watch the latest releases.
To control the system there are numerous touchscreens and remotes around the home, each family member can also use their personal mobile device to control the home, both inside and remotely.
Additionally, we installed a number of Amazon Alexa devices to enable voice control. When leaving the home, mum or dad can say “Alexa, I’m leaving”, for all of the lights, TV and music in the home to automatically turn off, all of the blinds to close, the door to lock behind them and the alarm to engage.
This is simplified, intuitive living.
“Dave and the Kayder team have been really great throughout the whole installation process. Their suggestions and support have helped carve my system into something that my whole family loves to use every day, I don’t know where we’d be without it now.”
