$300,000 + design and installation


In partnership with the builder, we wanted to maximize the eye/ear candy to wow potential buyers of this custom home, as well as the builder’s other offerings. The builder also requested an approach to eliminate all light switches, load switches and thermostats, and replace them with a minimum of designer keypads and touch panels.


All innovations were considered, no limitations were accepted.


A sophisticated fusion of the latest lifestyle enhancements:

  • 100 + lighting loads

  • 4 CCTV cameras and integrated security cameras

  • 7 zone video distribution

  • 12 audio zones

  • 6” touch panel in kitchen

  • 2 other 4” touch panels

  • 15 motorized window shades

  • 3 controlled fireplaces

  • 15 low-voltage keypads

  • 5.1 surround sound home theatre


  • In the great room a 52” flat screen is concealed behind a motorized fine art print in a custom frame.

  • SYSTEMS designed custom valances for all the motorized shades allowing them to blend seamlessly into the home’s décor.

  • 1 Zone, 4 Terabyte Audio/Video Server capable of storing the vast movie and music collection on an uncompressed hard-drive system.

  • Two Kaleidescape servers store a huge library of movies and music on an expandable, uncompressed hard drive system.

  • All SYSTEMS installations allow our clients to monitor and control the entire operation from any secure internet connection; including remote viewing from the CCTV cameras, as well as remote activation of the showhome’s security system.


The massive number of show home visitors has been duly impressed with both the beauty of the home as well as the state of the art technology within. The entire system has been specially programmed to operate the show home features with maximum ease; allowing the sales staff to demonstrate the attributes with minimum effort and maximum effect.
