We had the pleasure of providing a smart home solution for a young couple and their growing family in Manhattan’s West Village. The architect and interior designer had a very modern, cosmopolitan aesthetic in mind. The client requested that we engineer the system to be streamlined, reliable and, above all else, easy to use. Given these requirements, in conjunction with the client’s affinity for Apple products, we chose Savant as the home automation system for this project.
This beautifully appointed apartment features fully-automated Lutron lighting and window treatments throughout, centralized distributed video to multiple TVs, eleven zones of distributed audio with a 4-stream music server, an advanced smart wireless computer network, as well as four zones of integrated HVAC control. The Living Room boasts an audiophile surround system featuring McIntosh electronics and Bowers & Wilkins speakers. All of the systems in the apartment are easily operated by the two in-wall iPad Mini touch screens, any of the iPod Touch integrated Savant remote controls or the client’s desktop and iOS apps.
