Ingeny, a division of Interphone, has teamed up with property developer Chartwell Land & New Homes to install a smart building solution at a new luxury five-bedroom house in Oxted, Surrey. The Whispers, a prestigious development offering superior specification, required sophisticated home automation that could monitor and manage a wide range of systems to meet exact entertainment, communications, comfort and security requirements.
The Ingeny solution will provide complete control from a dedicated touchscreen, as well as via an app on any smartphone or tablet, making it possible to access and use both in the home and remotely. It has been designed to integrate familiar technology, so complementary systems work seamlessly together. As a result, the new homeowner will be able to centrally-operate lighting, zoned heating, CCTV, entrance gate and garage doors throughout the house.
Meanwhile, a distributed audio system with in-ceiling speakers has been installed throughout the ground floor and in the master suite to provide a multi-room sound system. The house has also been comprehensively pre-wired, so the home automation solution can be tailored to incorporate future requirements including expanded WIFI network, UHD video distribution and home cinema.
Andrew Fenning, Design and Construction Manager at Chartwell Land & New Homes commented: “We pride ourselves on our attention to detail united by a desire to innovate and deliver the finest quality. With this in mind, we recognise the importance of incorporating the latest technology solutions into our properties to add value and exceed the expectations of the homebuyer. Utilising Ingeny’s longstanding expertise, we have installed a home automation solution that provides added simplicity, convenience and enjoyment to the everyday lives of any future residents of The Whispers.”
Julian Synett, Managing Director of Interphone said: “We have created an advanced home automation system that delivers smart control throughout the house. It has been professionally designed and installed in line with Chartwell’s precise requirements, while possessing the flexibility and scalability to meet the personal tastes of prospective owners. By working closely with Chartwell at the concept and planning stage we have ensured that the home and building controls are part of a fully integrated system embedded in the building infrastructure.”
