CE Pro December 2021 - 41

" I'm a regular here in
Falmouth, so I knew about
the Tommy's Place project
and supported the mission,
but once I actually stepped
inside and saw how much
heart had been poured into
it, I felt compelled to add
what I could to the experience, "
says Zell.
Zell spent the next six
weeks sourcing product
donations from manufacturers
and volunteer labor
from friends, resulting in
a massive tech upgrade
that adds to the fun. After
hearing of the project,
Snap One became a donor
and Zell used the Control4
smart home system and a
variety of accompanying
technologies to give the
home remote control of
lighting, TVs, audio, electronic
door locks, plus an
enterprise-grade network
from Access Networks so
everyone can be connected
whether they are in the yard
or playing inside.
Design and aesthetics are
front and center at Tommy's
Place, with 11 interior design
teams from Massachusetts
participating in the redesign.
Tommy's Place used
Samsung Frame TVs in six
of the rooms, with the TVs
displaying slideshows of
children that are fighting
cancer when not in use.
Kevin Hancock, CEO of
Frame My TV, a local manufacturer
out of Methuen,
Mass., took the design a
step further by donating six
custom-made Deco frames
for the art-like TVs.
" I consider the families my
guests and I want them to
be able to relax the entire
time they are here without
needing says O'Connell.
" The technologies Adam
installed eliminated a lot of
potential difficulties, including
the reality of staying in a
home with nearly 100 lighting
loads. Nobody wants to
walk around for 10 minutes
each night to make sure the
lights are off and the doors
are locked, especially on
vacation. With the Control4
remotes and touchpanels
placed throughout the
home, they don't have to. A
single button for 'nighttime'
is all it takes. "
Each TV has a Control4
remote with a touchscreen
that makes it easy to control
lighting and choose video
sources while offering familiar
buttons for all TV functions.
This extends to the backyard
as well, where a 75-inch 4K
SunBrite TV and SunBrite
soundbar provide an outdoor
theater experience. The outdoor
space also has its own
zone in the home's multiroom
audio system, featuring
eight Episode landscape
speakers and an in-ground
burial subwoofer.
Tommy's Tavern, a hidden
speakeasy in the back, was
designed to have a 19th
century feel and be a place
for adults to gather. Zell
recalled seeing Reflectel,
a manufacturer of mirror
TVs, at CEDIA Expo and
reached out. A donated custom-made
Sony TV mirror
frame became not only the
showpiece of Tommy's Tavern,
but the kids think it's a
magical mirror like they've
seen in Snow White.
Several Luma surveillance
cameras are in the security
system, and a number of
WattBox power protection
devices help ensure all the
expensive electronic equipment
is secure from power
surges. OvrC remote maintenance
capabilities allow Zell
to troubleshoot minor issues
from other locations.
Snap One's donated
equipment also extends
into the unseen parts of the
smart home system, including
Strong TV mounts and
VersaBoxes and cabling from
Wirepath and Binary.
Boston Automations outfitted Tommy's Place with a system
around Control4 automation and other Snap One brands.
