Indigozest who specialise in smart home automation have recently completed a full integration of smart home technology throughout this detached property situated in a quite gated cul-de-sac.
The large five bedroom home in Chorleywood required easy control of the lighting and heating as well as sufficient Wi-Fi coverage across the whole house. Therefore the clients needed a solution that was able to retro fit the property with the smart home technology desired, without having to tear down walls and redecorate the entire home.
The approach Indigozest took was offering bespoke solutions to meet the clients desires, this started with installing a better AV control, which is now used every day. In addition, Indigozest provided integration of a HDMI matrix with 2 Sky boxes, amplifiers, multiple TVs and a whole house sound system. The result provides seamless and easy to control home automation from one single device, in this case the client chose an iPad.
For a seamless smart home, a robust network infrastructure is required offering the whole house excellent Wi-Fi coverage. The inefficient router from a previous broadband provider was replaced with a number of access points using one robust and efficient network.
A flexible lighting control system has been provided so the home owners do not have to go from one end of the room to the other to control different lights. In addition, the smart home technologies can all be controlled from a phone or iPad which sits in a wall in a docking station.
The garage door and front gate have been integrated into the home security and can also be controlled from the iPad. One of the biggest benefits of integrated home technology like this is the additional security you get, and it enables the ability to operate the lighting and heating remotely from anywhere in the world as long as there is an internet connection. This means whenever you go out, the system has the capability of turning on selected lights to simulate the presence of someone in the property.
