Bluffton, S.C.
Mixing Business with Pleasure
TRANSITIONING AUTOMATICALLY or via voice
command from a fully functional office to a sophisticated
media room, the multi-functional space keeps the CEO
owner well connected, professional, and proficient when he's
in work mode and when he's not.
To set the network foundation, Advanced Integrated Controls
pulled in plenty of Ethernet cabling, a task that required
boring underneath the house into a crawlspace to run new
conduits. These would interconnect with the home's existing
wiring conduit, enabling access and control of devices, like
surveillance cameras, that reside outside of the office.
Certainly, the 65-inch Sony OLED TV, which is paired with
two in-ceiling Elan speakers and an in-wall JL Audio subwoofer,
contributes to the entertainment value of the home office.
Advanced Integrated Controls extended its functionality
further by enabling it to also display zoom video and real-time
footage from six Elan outdoor surveillance cameras.
There's no need to leave the office if the cameras notice
a visitor. An 8-inch Elan touchscreen and app tie to an Elan
doorbell and function as intercoms so conversations can be
handled on the spot.
Lighting and audio contribute to the overall office vibe and
are quick and easy to alter via scenes programmed into an Elan
g! control platform. Walking into the office, for example, the
owner can tap a button on the touchscreen or utter an Alexa
voice command to create the right environment for working,
relaxing, conducting meetings, gaming, or catching up on the
news. Lutron-enabled lights and motorized Palladiom shades
react, as does an Elan thermostat, and a distributed audio
system that pumps a favorite music playlist or sports programs

from a central rack of AV equipment elsewhere in the office
speakers and display.
The scene can shift automatically throughout the day -
illuminated with both natural and artificial light and with soft
background music during working hours, for example, then
automatically at 5 p.m. transition to dim lighting, covered
windows, and livelier, louder music. This attention to detail allows
the owner to stay focused while in his office, rather than
having to take the time to fiddle with the technology.
Advanced Integrated Controls minimized interruptions and
distractions further by integrating the office technology to
the home's overarching Elan g! control system. From the office
touchscreen, he can operate lights, thermostats, security
devices, AV components, motorized shading throughout the
entire house. He's able to stay on top of his business and
home, be more efficient with his time, and let the Elan g! handle
many of the mundane household tasks.
It's a good thing since Advanced Integrated Controls went
above and beyond to make the office feel as inviting at 8 p.m.
as it does at 8 a.m. Speakers blend in with the beautiful woodwork,
motorized shade cassettes were fitted with custom
brass endcaps to match the brass light fixtures, and except for
the OLED display, there's no sign of AV components. It's all
enhanced by technology that sets the right mood for business
and pleasure. CE Pro
