Automated Living at the Northwest Idea House
The 2017 Northwest Idea House sponsored by 425 Magazine and Jaymarc homes featured a ton of automation and technology from Wipliance. Many features of the home, from the audio to the window treatments- can be controlled with a touchscreen.
The 2017 Northwest Idea House is a perfect combination of open living spaces and cozy retreats. With a variety of custom features and unique innovations from Jaymarc Homes, this property is a beautiful example of the best of Northwest living. Wipliance incorporated an immersive smart living experience into this gorgeous home.
This is a house that's perfect for entertaining- so an audio system that flows throughout the property was key to bringing together both the outdoor and indoor living spaces. By incorporating Origin Acoustics in-ceiling and landscape speakers, we are able to have music play throughout the home. By designing the landscape audio placement to complement the property, we are able to minimize disturbance outside the home while still creating an immersive experience.
For smaller spaces, SONOS wireless speakers bring the audio experience to bedrooms, bathrooms and more.
This home has many large windows- and the homeowners will have easy control over glare, temperature and privacy with the touch of a button thanks to the automated Lutron roller shades installed in the home. The bonus room becomes the perfect movie spot and the master bedroom transforms from a wall of glass to a cozy getaway thanks to blackout window treatments, and the view is preserved in the main level common spaces with a solar shade fabric.
Sony 4K televisions and Control4 universal remotes create an enjoyable home theater experience in the away room and bonus room. Using Control4 automation to tie in various components- the new owners will be able to set scenes to integrate various systems throughout the house into scenes that save energy and increase convenience. Hit the "movie night" scene and have the shades close, lights lower and temperature adjust to the perfect setting in addition to playing the movie. By incorporating home automation into multiple features of the home, Wipliance is able to create the ideal mood with the press of a button.
With all of these Wifi enabled devices, Wipliance incorporated networking and communications to keep all of the various systems running smoothly. And with a security and camera system that can be accessed remotely, the owner will be able to check in on their home from wherever they are.
The 425 Northwest Idea House is currently listed with Realogics Sotheby's International Realty. If you'd like to learn more about the products and services we used on this project, or how to incorporate smart living into your home, contact Wipliance today.
