A tech savvy and contemporary home

For the owners of this home, integrating their security, television and audio systems during the building stage was entrusted to award-winning home tech experts, Electronic Living.

Aesthetics were an important consideration, so in addition to liaising with the architect and builder, Electronic Living also worked with the interior designer to deliver a system whose existence is barely visible – from product selection, and design and cabling to installation, programming, and maintenance.

In keeping with the end goal of highlighting, not impeding, the home’s interior, the Electronic Living team incorporated clever solutions – like the television in the main living area, designed into the joinery detail with a movable sliding panel which allows it to disappear when not in use.

The Samsung televisions supplied are 4K compliant, and Internet-enabled, allowing access all available video sources including Apple TV, Blu-ray, Netflix, FTA TV and Foxtel. They also give the family visual connection to the home’s CCTV surveillance system, viewed in high definition via both the televisions and through the iPad App/Cloud control platforms (an Electronic Living signature). A colour video intercom was also provided at the front gate for communication with pedestrian visitors and is linked to two internal wall stations in both the kitchen and rumpus locations.

The family also tasked Electronic Living with the installation of superior audio systems throughout all living and entertaining areas – seven zones in total, including two surround sound zones and no less than five stereo zones. All the speakers have been flush mounted with the ceilings and matched to the decor, making them almost invisible, all controlled by easy to use iPads.
