Smart Home Installation in Hyde Park: Case Study
MDfx were hired to assist with the design and installation of a smart home in Hyde Park. A large 4 bedroom flat in London, which was to become a family home. The flat was stripped back to a bare shell, which gave the opportunity to completely re-design the systems from scratch and install new cabling.
The new smart home in Hyde Park had to be extremely discreet, working closely with the interior designer, at Maisha Design.
The finished article provides a high-tech home with home cinema, music and televisions to all rooms, automated curtain tracks, Wi-Fi, lighting control and home CCTV. All of these have been thought about extensively and incorporated into the interior design. They make no feature of themselves or impact on the interior designer’s overall vision.
All of these things are brought to life and brought together through a combination of Control4 and Lutron lighting systems. This makes them effortless, convenient and robust to operate, through the clients own Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.
The interior designer’s keen eye for a stunning lighting design was taken advantage by installing a Lutron QS lighting system. It’s effortless to operate and instantly shows the property off, with preset lighting scenes providing a mixture of mood and practical scenes.
As well as looking amazing, this smart home in Hyde Park has an audio and video system to match. With a careful selection of Bowers and Wilkins speakers and Rotel amplifiers, the wiring and black boxes are hidden from view. These are all neatly installed into a Middle Atlantic rack in the plant area. The speakers chosen provide a great balance between aesthetics and audio quality and are equally enjoyed in bedrooms, ensuites and the home cinema, which is further enhanced with a subwoofer.
Overall it’s a beautiful scheme and one that we’ve been proud to work on. It matches our ethos of keeping things discreet, without diminishing the overall enjoyment, convenience and quality.
