Oh, if home automation were could be so simple! Well, if you can afford a $14 million dollar mansion, then yes, you can probably pull off something similar to this control-it-all system with 3 simple modes to chose from: "Chill, Party and Away."Because of the older nature of the 12,000 sq. foot LA home, with tons of previous electrical work built in, Vantage's home automation integration not only had to take center stage, but required help of many other professional installers from Creative Control Design, RocketBoy Systems and Westco Electrical.
However, the end result is an achievement in home automation only a few of us can relate to. Tons of touchscreens litter the walls, allowing easy access to turn the home from a calm oasis to an all-out lounge for guests. With the flick of a switch, settings and schedules for temperature, lighting, and home theater equipment all switch to their set modes. Did we mention the swimming pool was integrated as well?
We're on the lookout for affordable options to create something similar on the cheap (we don't think most of us have the money to hire a team of professional home automation installers, let alone $14 million for a home at this caliber).
