Takeover Job Rids Client of 60 Useless Remotes
Liquid Sound fix this mess of an installation, replacing dozens of disjointed mini systems with a Control4 system with 13 touchscreens that controls 26 zones of audio, 11 LCD screens, two home theaters, 28 audio and video sources, a 32-camera surveillance system and two motorized LCD lifts.
The guys at Vancouver-based Liquid Sound were up for the challenge. It paid off because not only did they manage to centralize everything with Control4 automation, but they had the surreal experience of handing the owner a bag of 60 remote controls he no longer needed.
Instead of dozens of mini systems, the client now has a fully integrated Control4 system with 13 touchscreens. "We are able to control 26 zones of audio, 11 LCD screens, two home theaters, 28 audio and video sources, a 32-camera surveillance system and two motorized LCD lifts," Mendes says.
The $260,000 system includes $60,000 of Control4 equipment, making it Liquid Sound's largest Control4 project. The greatest challenge, Mendes says, "was to install a system that is suitable for a family of five with each member having their own unique tastes of music, and having the ability to select their favorite songs from any audio zone in the house."
Mendes asked the client to comment on the system, and he relays this response: "Look at all those remotes in one bag! Glad we don't have to touch them!"
