Los Feliz Dream Home

As part of a remodel of their 6,000-square-foot, 15-room residence in Los Angeles, CA, the homeowners wanted to incorporate a state-of-the-art control and automation system that would not only reduce their energy costs, but improve their standard of living. For the system, the family’s top priorities were ease of use, a consistent design across multiple user interfaces, and high reliability.

There was an extensive range of components located throughout the home that needed to be brought together into one seamless system — from numerous video sources and displays to multi-room audio, a security system, pool and gate controls, and much more.

To successfully integrate such a wide system, Dream Technologies, Inc. chose to use a single central processor that, via IR, RF, RS-232, and IP protocols, seamlessly integrated the whole home on one system. That system could be controlled by either  an iPad or a hand held T3-V+ remote. Both have easy to use, uniform interfaces. These interfaces can control any component in the house from any room without interfering with each other.

We integrated this large system with a central processor. That processor could be controlled by either an iPad or a hand held T3-V+ remote. Both have easy to use, uniform interfaces that do not require a large learning curve. These interfaces can control any component in the house from any room without interfering with each other.
