The design includes smart lighting switches controlled by motion sensors for automatic security, video surveillance cameras integrated to the A/V system and one-touch panels for the control of lighting, audio/video sources, security and access. The audio/video distribution system will utilize Microsoft's Vista™ operating system running on the latest generation ILC media PC.

This gave us unrestricted access and the opportunity to cost effectively run the 6,000+ feet of signal and control wiring required for the design level of automation. The builder wanted to offer reliable state-of-the-art control. To achieve this we chose a system design that builds on and extends our success using Microsoft's media center technology to control A/V applications and remote security and monitoring.
