This client knew EXACTLY what he wanted. As a self-confessed technology lover that is a busy businessman as well as a single dad of two boys he wanted his home to work for him.
Having followed AOS from seeing us on one of his business associates Instagram profiles when we did his project (Stephen Manderson, Professor Green – see case study here), watching us for a while and comparing the quality of our work to other installers he had seen, or even seeing friends’ houses & racks that had systems installed – he knew there was no other choice but to use Art of Smart.
He wanted control at his fingertips of everything as well as having remote access to his home for when he was at work. A dedicated cinema room that performed well that he could chill out in when he had rare down time. Music thoughout the home that linked straight to his Spotify playlists.
This house already had Niko ‘smart lighting’ installed, which albeit only a couple of years old didn’t give him what he wanted, it also had some cable infrastructure installed and some AV which made our installation that little bit easier.
So, technically a retrofit - Art of Smart split the project over 3 phases to give the client chance to appreciate each section. First things first, we ripped out the old AV installation and installed a prebuild rack build at AOS HQ. This included the Control4 brains but also a managed network and wifi giving the client wifi throughout the home and garden. Replacing all his speakers to give him a simple to use music system in every room in the house. For the TVs, we replaced the existing remotes in favor of control4 SR260 remotes and added an EA1 ar every TV for OSD (on screen display) We also replaced the CCTV system and old lighting system replacing it with Control4.
In phase 2 we upgraded the heating controls, added a video intercom changed the electrical distribution board and added motion sensors around the house as well as integrating the alarm system. We also upgraded the cinema room lighting and added in some RGBW colour changing LED and illuminated poster frames.
In phase 3 we changed the outside lights and added garage door integration.
All in all the client is very happy and absolutely loves his Control4 system as you can see in this client interview video here…
