Manchester City Living



Here we designed and installed a multi room audio system, intelligent lighting system (internal and external), CCTV system, an av distribution system to all viewing points as well as a Home Cinema in the rear lounge that doubled for a cinema in the garden, with an automated awning to offer shade from the sun and the rain, for a 5 bedroom semi-detached home.

The audio system saw 5 separate zones for audio distribution using a mixture of pairs of in ceiling stereo speakers, stand alone table top units and waterproof speakers for the outdoor music and cinema installation, that could all work independently or be brought together for party modes etc.

The lighting system had over 30 zones of individual lighting with on average 4 zones of lighting per room. The mixture of lighting was from recessed down lights, pendant/lamp lights where required and LED shadow lighting in warm white colour around the house and colour change in a few key areas. Externally a full garden lighting installation was installed that was controlled by the central intelligent lighting system allowing both timed, pre programmed scenes and switched control of the system. As well as a garden audio system being present in the back garden also.

The other form of lighting was the security lighting that was integrated to work with the CCTV system we installed. That saw infrared motion sensitive cameras at the front and the back of the property, with one further camera on the outbuilding.

We also installed a TV distribution system to accommodate every available point in the house taking it's sources from mostly localised equipment present in the key areas. One of those being the integrated home cinema in the rear extension, that saw a 100 inch automated screen with a 5.l full surround system to be delivered by one wall and two floor standing speakers at the front , and floor standing speakers for the rears to suit this room layout and application. Also here we installed a secondary translucent screen so we could then flip the projector image and back project onto the screen that is located on the threshold creating an outdoor cinema in the garden under the awning the just had the audio running in line through the garden audio zone on the pair of waterproof outdoor stereo speakers. Cleverly creating two applications in one! Inner city living at it's best!
