It’s not enough that this Balinese-style home is located in the paradise known as Honolulu. We get to be envious of its sunny home electronics systems too.
That’s because custom electronics professional iDesigns by Michael outfitted the tropical home with 32 zones of streaming media, and full access and control of all systems from touchscreens in every room.
“The home is open and inviting, enticing guests to savor the Balinese style and the rich woodwork that surrounds you throughout the home,” says iDesigns principal Michael Avery.
The home features integrated systems such as IP Entertainment, Integrated Touchscreen Control, Architectural Lighting, Home Theater, Pool Control, Security, Surveillance Video, Access Control, HomeLAN and Climate Control. Manufacturers whose products were incorporated included: AMX, NetStreams, SpeakerCraft, Vantage Controls, GE Security, OnQ, Audio Control, Furman, Middle Atlantic, Siedle, Marantz, Axonix, RTI, Dedicated Micros, Panasonic, Liberty, Leviton, Chief Mfg, Nexus, Samsung and PDR.
NetStreams serves up much of the IP media goodness, while AMX and Vantage combine to make the main automation and lighting controls convenient, hassle-free and tied together.
“This is a very advanced all IP home that supports the active lifestyle of the owners without being overly obtrusive or gadgety,” Avery says. “The controls are intuitive, making the complex systems very easy to use. The systems are totally integrated into the home and the owners lifestyle. From the RFID reader at the front gate to the iPod dock in the Outdoor Kitchen, everything was designed to complement and enhance the high style live/work environment designed by the owners.”
