22 Jun Case Study:- Apartments on Knightsbridge London
10 Lancelot Place, Knightsbridge, London (opposite Harrods)
We have just finished working on this new apartment block opposite Harrods on Knightsbridge.Each of the 55 apartments is pre-cabled to allow easy installation of a full multi-room audio video system incorporating the North Building Management System, Honeywell Galaxy Alarm, Leax Lighting system and BPT intercom system. In the two penthouse apartments we have installed a Crestron control system to bring easy control of each element mentioned above.
The North Building Management System in the penthouses controls all under floor heating and ventilation of the apartments. With so much glass in the apartments it is important to have accurate control of heating and cooling. Our Crestron control system integrates perfectly with the North Building Management System to provide temperature setting and fan speed in each room of the apartment. It also allows time schedules to be adjusted so the home owner can choose when the hot water, heating and ventilation is on. Controlling a zone is as easy as choosing a room from the plan above.
Leax Apartment Lighting Control
The apartments benefit from a full whole apartment Leax Lighting control system. This system allows the user to select any of four scenes in any room. The Leax system is fully integrated in to our Crestron control system with scene selection in every room, and up and down control, simply by selecting a room on the plan above.
The 6″ Crestron panels are fully integrated with the apartment intercom system. Calling the apartment from any of the entrances or from the concierge displays the correct video camera on the touchpanel and allows two way communication and door release. The door release is automatically mapped to the right door and car park barrier depending on where the call originated.
Honeywell Galaxy Alarm Integration with Crestron
Integrating the Honeywell Galaxy alarm system with the Crestron control system makes sense on a number of levels – specific actions can be performed on alarm arm or disarm – like lights in communal areas on or off – and excellent alarm reporting. Should the alarm be triggered the alarm can tell the apartment owner exactly which point was activated, for instance front door or kitchen room sensor. In an apartment of this size this can be a big help.
Each Apartment Pre-Wired for Easy Home Entertainment Installation
As stated above each of the 55 apartments is pre-wired to allow for easy installation of a home entertainment system. Cabling for touchpanel’s and for in-ceiling loudspeakers is already in place allowing a ‘no mess’ install in the future.
