In late 2014 TechFit were asked by a Dublin architect to put together a specification for a new house build in Geneva, Switzerland. The house was 1 of 10 on an exclusive development on the shores of Lake Geneva.
The client had very specific ideas on the home AV side of things. The wish-list included a full Lutron lighting system throughout the house, a 7.1 cinema room in the basement with stadium seating for optimum viewing pleasure, a motorised projection screen with Artcoustic in-wall speakers giving the client fantastic sound for their home theatre viewing.
The client also requested in- room connectivity with touch screens on the walls to include built-in intercoms, as well as heating control in every room.
As the house is located on an elevated site it gets a lot of light, so TechFit’s dedicated Project Manager had to allow for electric blinds and curtains to be controlled remotely. In summer when it gets too hot the air conditioning comes on and in winter the heating comes on automatically when it gets too cold.
The house is fully networked and all of the equipment is placed in the coms room in the basement. Each room has built in speakers for individual music listening or for family gatherings and parties.
Other features included are, full security system with an , Alarm system and perimeter security, CCTV cameras at the front gate and covering the entire grounds, the client also wanted to be able to move each camera from their smartphone.
TechFit liaised with the Architects both in Dublin and France, along with the Swiss builder, to give the client their dream home. Project management was of the utmost importance given the distance involved and the obvious many tradesmen that had to be carefully picked so that the installation went as smoothly as possible.
