Newly completed home in Toluca Lake, CA. The homeowner came to us just before closing escrow on a new home and wanted to create a total smart home, complete with a cinematic theater room.
The home now features Control4 total home automation, with 10" in-wall touch panels and a single streamlined interface to control everything from the Lutron smart lighting system, the front door intercom, garage doors, drive and pedestrian gates, surveillance cameras, TV and audio systems in each room, even the pool and spa.
Martin Logan Electrostat tower speakers frame the Family Room fireplace providing incredible sound for both music and audio from the Sony Master Series OLED TV. A whole-home video distribution system discretely organizes video sources in the equipment closet (4K Apple TVs, Blu-ray Player, Cable/Satellite TV boxes) to transmit to screens throughout the house.
For an even more immersive at-home movie night, this house also features a media room theater, with a Sonance Reference in-wall surround sound system and sound-cushioning acoustic panels, letting you get lost in the movie. A Sony 4K UHD video projector and acoustically transparent ultra high definition screen make sure no frame and no detail is missed. Smart lighting helps set the perfect atmosphere, sleek and comfortable theater seating from CinemaTech has room for everyone, and a Control4 touch panel controls everything with ease.
