Completed in 2015 this property in the Midlands features a high-definition home media centre installed and commissioned by Veritais.
The audio-visual system has been built around a Control4 system that provides the software and processing power for media distribution, and which in turn interfaces with the home’s main data system to allow single-point control of the CCTV as well as the TV, movie and music systems. Handheld Zigbee remote controls installed throughout allow the owners to control any aspect of the home from anywhere in the house. This same functionality also extends to their own tablets and phone even when away from the house.
A total of 8 TV screens are installed throughout, the largest 65-inch TV in the reception room and the smallest 26-inch TV installed in the kitchen. All TV rooms have access to 3 Virgin boxes dedicated to members of the family for a varied choice of broadcast entertainment. TVs in the bedrooms are installed in motorised TV lifts installed at the foot of the bed so the TV is completely hidden when not in use.
Each zone additionally has access to an Apple TV for Apple content as well as the ability to Airplay movies and music wirelessly from the owners’ apple devices to the TVs and speakers.
Sound in each room comes from in-ceiling speakers.
On the ground floor a home cinema has been installed. A 130-inch electronic screen automatically comes out of the ceiling when a source is selected on the remote. An Epson projector produces amazing quality images, with the cinema surround sound being provided by an Onkyo AV Receiver driving a 5.1 Kef speaker and subwoofer system.
Additional features of this home media centre installed by Veritais include a party mode that transforms the entire house into a single zone for music or other entertainment.
Wi-Fi access is available throughout from Cisco Enterprise-grade Access points providing a wireless mesh. A Cisco network allows the system to run lighting-fast meaning the whole home can be controlled from everybody at the same time without slowing down the system.
Veritais serves the local area (Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Solihull and beyond) as well as the rest of the UK. This property in Warwickshire shows another example of a home entertainment system.
