The project "BCP LAB Agency" (Banco de Credito del Peru - www.viabcp.com - the largest bank in Peru with over 450 agencies) is the first LAB Agency ever built of its kind. The challenge was to automate the shades to save energy and avoid extra warming, turn on/off the lights in predetermined hours adjusting lighting levels automatically and full air conditioning control.
The apartment owners had unpleasant experiences with their previous old apartment regarding other control systems (consisting in frequent failures and limited features due to a lack of a complete integration for all types of applications). The convenience & the fully integrated solutions brought by the Vantage system convinced the owners to implement and upgrade their apartment.
Since the owner of the property is not often present, he has to be able to use the functionalities of the automation system remotely. Integration with all systems in the house (music, curtains, etc.) was important in order to reach the highest level of comfort.
One Tower Bridge: Vantage automation for contemporary, luxury living
March 15, 2018
To integrate this luxury into the personal space and requirements of each property owner, leading smart technology is discreetly integrated within the home design and allows residents to transform their environment at the touch of an interface screen or the swipe of a smart device. For the ultimate in user experience, each One Tower Bridge apartment suite has been specified to include an intelligent Legrand Vantage home automation system. This gives the user complete control over everything from the lighting, ambience, and temperature to the entertainment experiences in each room. A modern and sleek interface allows the user to access each function directly via the wall mounted screen or from a smart device such as an iPad; putting them effortlessly in control of the home even when out and about.
A large home, consisting of eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and several different lighting load types, was the main challenge posed by this project. Large spaces can sometimes cause a problem for lighting control applications, because they require a system powerful enough to not only control a lot of loads but several load types as well.
The Legrand team needed to find a space that fit their needs—or, ideally, one they could tailor to their own specifications. They got what they were looking for in the Pleasant Grove site. Daylighting was a key feature attracting Legrand to the new building, as it benefits from an abundance of natural light. The original architect paid tribute to the great Utah outdoors by incorporating glass walls, and structural bracing was moved inside to allow nature to flow into the space. While posing certain challenges, this design preserved the magnificent views, and employees love the natural light and connection to the outdoors. As a bonus, the space provided the perfect setting for integrated lighting and shading control for daylight harvesting.
As interest and participation in the stargazing sessions grew, the park decided to upgrade their lighting control system to be able to turn off (or dim) pole lighting in the parking lots and dim walking path lighting systems to better accommodate the evening sessions.
The homeowner is a lighting specifier. They wanted to specify a wide range of types of lighting (LED, incandescent, forward phase, reverse phase, etc.) They also wanted a single interface to control their entire home including kitchen and butler’s kitchen, wine room, personal and gathering spaces, 8 fireplaces, 8 automated 15’ x 8’ sliding glass doors, indoor/outdoor bar and patio, pool/spa and hot tub, pool LED’s, music, etc.
When the Elways were looking for a reliable, wireless, automated lighting system for their 15,000 square foot home in Couer d’Alene, Idaho, energy saving with single button control and convenience were their main focus, with an emphasis on dramatic lighting scenarios and simple controls. There was no question where they’d go for a solution. Their experience with Vantage in their Colorado home paved the way for the new system.
Located in Wyoming’s scenic Black Hills, The Wyoming Club’s luxurious residences offer members a four-season club lifestyle within the unsettled west. To deliver the experience a home automation system is a pure necessity. However, multiple challenges present themselves with the demand for a system that is able to fulfill the needs of more than one resident, is easily navigated, and blends with the beautiful aesthetics of the Club’s homes.
