Light Fantastic

Published: Monday, April 25, 2016
Lighting does more than just illuminate a home; it creates a warm and inviting living space. 4 Kings Security designed and installed a complete lighting solution for this luxurious seven storey Mayfair family residence, a project which “went beyond just lighting; it enhanced the experience for the owner in their home”.

A stunning installation, the lighting is simple to operate, but sophisticated behind the scenes. The system controls all of the new LED lighting, including beautiful bespoke chandeliers, strip, task and feature lighting. The team from 4 Kings Security designed each space to create specific pre-set scenes, but with additional functionality allowing the homeowner to change each circuit individually, as well as providing the option to save each scene for future use. Using Crestron’s inbuilt astronomical clock for sunrise and sundown basic logic, certain settings can also be used to save energy and create the perfect light for any time of day.

A lighting system of this high standard transforms a house into a home, enabling the property to be perfectly suited for a variety of different settings; an intimate dinner, a lively entertainment area, whatever the need may be. Easy to use controls allow the lights to dim, or turn off altogether, at the touch of a button – you don’t even need to be in the same room. By combining this with the astronomical clock you can ensure that lighting is always at the best level for the time of day.

Cameo keypads, touch panels and the Crestron app are used throughout the home, allowing the simple intuitive interfaces to display every option available within two or three presses. With stylish backlit engraved buttons, each keypad is designed for easy use, even for guests who may not be familiar with the system.

The scale of this project is also phenomenal. Over 240 different circuits were designed and installed, with more than 50 motors to operate window blinds integrated into the property. Most importantly, 4 Kings Security was able to configure and programme each single LED circuit to prevent unattractive low power blinking and strobing.

The pool area proved a particular challenge as it featured 72 individual DMX colour LED fittings, a DMX Barrisol ceiling, LED mains dimming fittings and LED strip lighting - all working in the same area. However, 4 Kings Security successfully integrated them all into one seamless control solution for the client, who comments: “The lighting system is a wonder, allowing me to control complex spaces with a press of a button. Re-assigning keys on the touch panel and setting my own scenes is so easy."

The advantage of using Crestron in this project is that it allowed 4 Kings Security to integrate a range of disparate lighting controls for the client. Danny King, Managing Director of 4 Kings Security commented “The team were able to consider using different technologies and suppliers, confident in the knowledge that we would always be able to find a way to integrate it successfully. Given the scale and grandeur of the project, the only choice was Crestron. No matter how many lighting circuits had to be controlled, it would be simple to accomplish with Crestron. On top of this, Crestron Smart Graphics on the touch panels and iPads allowed simplicity of control that is intuitive and inviting yet remains all encompassing.”

With so many different circuits of lighting to control, it is important to have a system that you can trust. Crestron allows control of all lighting as well as AV, security systems, heating and cooling all on one platform – giving you access to your whole home from the palm of your hand. This high standard of lighting control won UK integrator, 4 Kings Security, the award for Best Lighting Application at the recent Crestron Integration Awards.
