Progressive Home Automation chose WyreStorm to put together the ultimate Smart Home, integrating audio-visual, lighting, and security systems. The house shows how technology and stylish décor can work perfectly well together. The project features 15 discrete zones of audio and six multi-room visual set-ups, including living room, dedicated home theatre, master and guest bedrooms, loft space and a full gym, with Progressive Home Automation designing the show home environment to create the best end user experience possible. Reliability and flexibility were important considerations, as was the capability to seamlessly integrate with all devices within the project to offer true ‘Home Automation’. All sources are distributed through a WyreStorm HDBaseT Class B 6×6 matrix switcher, for transmissions of video and audio, and two-way IR and RS232 up to 70m along a single Cat5e/6 to WyreStorm HDBaseT display receivers at each of the six display locations.

In terms of display zones, the Living Room and both Master and Guest Bedrooms featured 60” Samsung plasma screens, a larger 75” Samsung for the Loft area and a 55” LG LED display for the gym, while the showpiece display zone Theatre Room boasted Epson Powerlite projection and a 135” motorized Elite projection screen.
