MDfx - Intelligent AV Solutions; Automation, Home cinema, Lighting Control
MDfx were commissioned to deliver an extensive yet discreet, fully integrated home solution for this beautiful 3 storey house in Knightsbridge. This house has some very interesting features, the whole of the top storey was converted into the master suite, there is a small pavilion in the garden for relaxing or entertaining, an out lounge at the end of the garden with a gym, and in the centre of the house is a large skylight window which acts as a light well for the stairwell and communal hallways.
Some of the technology installed:
The house is controlled by Crestron throughout with Crestron faceplates with custom engravings for controlling audio and lights, in-wall Crestron touch panels, and Crestron apps on their iPads to control the entire home
We designed and built a full home cinema with hidden JVC projector and a fixed Vutec screen with acoustically transparent fabric to enable us to hide Speakercraft speakers behind it
Bowers & Wilkins-wall/in-ceiling speakers throughout the house which play music that is distributed from iPod docks
Full telephone system
Security: intruder alarm; dome CCTV cameras all over the house externally;
Siedledoor entry; gate intercom and keycode; and window vibration sensors which are recessed in with custom made back boxes and faceplates
Smoke/fire detection and alarms throughout the house
Loewe TV in the living room
Wall mounted LG TV in the gym
Tidy Middle Atlantic AV rack with movie server and iPod dock
Motorised lights all the way up the hallway
Working very closely with the design team MDfx were able to provide a system that blends naturally into the building and still delivers a high end experience. A very tidy install we are highly proud of.
