This project was undertaken for an overseas client who wanted to be able to monitor and control his apartment in Southern Spain from his home in the UK. Our involvement in the project started with an initial meeting with our client, where he was able to specify which of the existing systems he wanted to control and where he required updating or the installation of new systems.
- It was agreed that the design and installation should include the following:
- Monitoring of movement in the apartment remotely
- Surveillance of owner’s yacht moored in adjacent marina
- Full HVAC control locally and remotely via iPad Audio distribution to 4 zones including patio area
- Integration of control with existing mood lighting
- Integration with existing alarm
- HDMI distribution to 3 zones from DVD and Satellite sources
- Control of existing shutters on windows
We produced an initial design spec, which was agreed. This was followed by our cable run out and CAD designs. The installation was carried out over a week and the programming and commissioning followed. Full user documentation was produced and on site training was supplied to the client.
