Custom Controls were recently asked to do a large Crestron home automation install in Dubai, and the results truly show the best that home automation can offer. This installation highlights such as things as high end audio video distribution, lighting control systems, air conditioning, high grade networking, WiFi, CCTV and access control.

Here is just a look at some of the features of this magnificent installation…

This huge AV system in the property is centred around a Crestron 32:32 HDMI matrix, which is able to distribute a variety of video sources to each room through a number of connected TVs and projectors.

In each of these rooms where there is a TV or projector installed, the resident is able to connect to five satellite TV receivers, watch films or TV shows – which are streamed from any of the five Kaleidescape Movie players. It is also possible to stream online content through four Apple TVs in the property.

For an enhanced audio experience, the property is fitted with Artcoustic on-wall speakers in the family and guest rooms. These on-wall speakers are supported by top of the rang end in-ceiling speakers in the bathrooms, en-suites and communal spaces. In total, there are an incredible five surround sound rooms in the property, and it is possible for the projectors to neatly drop from the ceiling if required.

All of the home entertainment and automation systems can be controlled by iPads.

Home Cinema

A top of the range Home Cinema Installation was completed to complete the look. A massive 3.5m projector screen presents a superior image quality from the SIM2 projector with an incredible 17 channels of surround sound on offer from an Anthem processor and amplifier.

For comfort, the home cinema is fitted with eight Cineak Home Cinema chairs with stylish backlit onyx tables. Oh, and for the classic cinematic touch, a popcorn machine was installed!

The Awards this Installation Received…

The client wasn’t the only one blown away by the quality of the end result. The installation received the Crestron Integration Award for the Best International Project in EMEA. Not only that, the Home Cinema part of the installation was also a winner of the Artcoustic Install of the Month.
