Lighting, Heating and Home Automation -
An exciting new build using modern techniques and materials to include intelligent lighting, heating and home automation to improve energy efficiency.
A centralised lighting and heating control system, connecting all of the lights, underfloor heating and motorised windows together.
Within each room, a single keypad/switch provides scene control for the lighting, a thermostat for heating control tracking the temperature and running the underfloor heating system so that the room is always comfortable and the ability to open and close automated windows. All this works together to maximise the efficiency of the home.
Each room has a combination of ceiling, wall and feature lighting, working as one to create the perfect ambiance and mood.
Exterior lighting responds to the time of day and movement providing security at night.
On the top floor, temperature is monitored and responds when too hot or cold by opening/closing a motorised roof light. The ground floor window openers automatically close when it begins to rain.
This project was awarded the "Best Residential Project" Runner Up 2014 for the lighting, Heating and Automation systems implemented by iCubed Home Cinema. The home has also been entered in for a Architectural award for 2016.
