On a horse farm in Stanfordville, NY, sits a 20,000 square foot residence. Digital Home Systems was a key part of the design process for this ground-up construction, which began in early 2018. The client wanted to equip this home with easy-to-use bulletproof technology that would enhance living.
The homeowners’ wants and needs were to make technology an organic part of the construction so everything blended seamlessly in the home. They wanted to control all systems with ease within this large property.
It was very important to them to ensure there was proper WiFi coverage throughout the entire home and pool house.
Regarding audio/video, they wanted televisions in all rooms (14 TVs plus a theater) with centralized sources so that each television would not need its own cable box. One of the homeowners is a former opera singer, so it was essential for music to be accessible throughout the house, pool and overall property.
Since the owners have multiple homes, security and the ability for remote monitoring was key as well. In this home, Control4 provided CCTV and alarms. (Digital Home Systems is licensed and insured for all security aspects of the job.)
An essential requirement in this project was also a comfortable and immersive home theater. The home theater needed to be equipped for family gatherings, especially for the grandchildren.
Most importantly, the clients desired ease of use and reliability—a complete end-to-end solution.
