MDfx - Intelligent AV Solutions; Automation, Home cinema, Lighting Control
This property underwent a complete rebuild including the digging out of the basement, a project which took over 5 years to complete including the design. We were brought in to design and install the automation for this incredible home and we were involved in the project right from the design phase to ensure all technology solutions throughout the house would work together seamlessly.
The entire house is controlled by Crestron with Lutron lighting control and keypads
The basement is beautiful space with a bar, pool table, and a subtle cinema which hides away when not in use. A JVC projector drops out of the ceiling in a Future Automation projector lift and a Vutec Lectric 2 countersunk projector screen drops out of the ceiling at the touch of a button. For sound there are flush in-wall Bowers & Wilkins LCR7’s with a Bowers and Wilkins PV1 subwoofer.
On the basement level there is also a large pool which has a steam room, a Crestron controlled waterfall feature, a bar area with 65″ Panasonic TV and Automated doors which require keypad code for entry which ensures children do not use the pool unattended. These doors also have an emergency open function in case of emergency in the pool which sounds an alarm throughout the house and activates all of the Crestron panels to displays the camera in the pool.
