This award-winning vacation home on Bethany Beach is packed with smart home technology, all designed to make the owner’s life easier both when he’s there and when he’s away at his primary residence.
The ability to remotely monitor his beach home was one of the owner’s top priorities, made possible by deploying a system whose features covered nearly all interior and exterior spaces. This included entertainment elements such as distributed audio and video, environmental facets of lighting and temperature control, and security
features of access control, intrusion detection, and surveillance. Taking practical considerations for this home’s location even further, the owner is able to close the storm shutters and turn off the water even from hundreds of miles away.
It was not just the amount of technology, but the way it was interwoven to provide functionality beyond homeowner expectations, that resulted in CE Pro magazine named this project the “Integrated Security Project of the Year” for the 2018 Mark of Excellence awards.
