The perimeter of this home is all glass — perfect for raking in the local views, but challenging for the HVAC system. That’s why 60 automated roller shades are in play, raising and lowering to as they sense the amount of sunlight in the room. The homeowner also wanted climate control that he could access remotely while away from home, so each zone has presets called “Vacation,” “Home,” “Away,” and “Sleep.” The centralized lighting system has its own four scene settings: “Welcome,” “Entertain,” “Goodbye,” and “Goodnight.”

As the lighting presets indicate, this homewoner is fond of entertaining. Fifteen dedicated zones of audio and two independent landscape systems are accessible via any guest’s mobile device, so partygoers are free to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). That’s all a guest can control, however — audio keypads feature a lockout mode. Twelve video displays in eight different rooms round out the electronic entertainment options, including three displays in the billiard room and an outdoor TV that’s hidden — until it lifts to just above the water level of the hot tub.

The home was a finalist in the 2016 CEDIA Awards. Washington state’s Beyond Hi-Fi entered the project in the Integrated Home, Level II category.
