Luxury Home Automations in the Prestige Market

Innovative technology and intelligent features are becoming expected components when it comes to designing, and selling, high end and luxury homes.

Innovative technology and intelligent features are becoming expected components when it comes to designing, and selling, high end and luxury homes.

Appointments or features designed for practicality and implemented with sustainability and future proofing in mind hold sway over the ambience of the home and set the tone for luxury living, while establishing an environment of ultimate comfort, convenience and security.

Home automation is centred around using the latest technology to enhance the everyday living experience, tailored to each individual lifestyle. Everyday objects become ‘intelligent’, with many having the capacity to ‘learn’ or communicate, send information to the user and take commands. In the prestige property market, the latest interfaces and systems are used to increase the sensory experience as well as saving time, promoting energy efficiency and ensuring the ultimate security.

When it comes to the ‘Internet of Things’, everything can be controlled from smart panels throughout the home or remotely from smart devices. Some more advanced systems will even activate from a voice command. For example, automatic pool cleaners and sprinkler systems have been around for a while, however now they can be operated remotely and can incorporate changes depending on the physical environment at the time.

In 2016, Marshall White agents Nicole French and Marcus Chiminello successfully sold two prestigious Toorak properties at 4 Robertson Street and 9 Towers Road. Both achieved record prices at the time and presented versatile and functional spaces comprehensively appointed with state of the art home automation features including automated lighting, blinds, heating, cooling and security.

Currently available, the superb residence at 64 Well Street, Brighton, incorporates innovative technologies including an advanced self cleaning pool, designed to automatically clean the walls and floors of the swimming pool.

The opulent Penthouse at 29 Washington Street, Toorak, at present open to international expressions of interest, features world-class luxury embellishments and automations including video intercom, climate control, ambient lighting and remote blinds.

“When it comes to the ‘Internet of Things’, everything can be controlled from smart panels throughout the home or remotely from smart devices”.

In home automation arrangements, security and privacy is assured from the moment of entry, using motion and sound detection, geofencing, access via a security intercom and keyless keypad and, in the most advanced systems, facial recognition technology.

A room’s lighting can completely change the space and set the mood. With touch control from a smart device, automatic lighting controls not only the intensity of the light, but also the colour, offering the full gamut to suit the required ambience. Custom designed automated lighting systems are programmed to dim when there is strong natural light and can be synchronised with the blinds, creating a more functional, comfortable and sustainable living environment.

Cutting edge temperature control devices can automatically detect conditions in the environment such as heat and humidity and adjust accordingly, as well as learn and adjust to pre-programmed temperatures through Wi-Fi enabled sensors. In the same manner, smart fans detect thermal conditions and air movement in a room and adapt. Wi-Fi enabled reverse cycle air conditioners enable remote climate control through a smart phone application. Remote sensors can also reduce hot or cold spots in rooms, ensuring each individual room is maintained at its preferred temperature.

With innovative technologies and automations present in the home, everyday life becomes effortless.
