Ingeny, Chartwell Team Up on Whispers Integration Project
Ingeny, a division of Interphone, has teamed up with property developer Chartwell Land & New Homes to install a smart building solution at a new luxury five-bedroom house in Oxted, Surrey.
The Whispers, a prestigious development offering superior specification, required sophisticated home automation that could monitor and manage a wide range of systems to meet exact entertainment, communications, comfort and security requirements.
The Ingeny solution will provide complete control from a dedicated touchscreen, as well as via an app on any smartphone or tablet, making it possible to access and use both in the home and remotely. It has been designed to integrate familiar technology, so complementary systems work seamlessly together. As a result, the new homeowner will be able to centrally operate lighting, zoned heating, CCTV, entrance gate and garage doors throughout the house.
Meanwhile, a distributed audio system with in-ceiling speakers has been installed throughout the ground floor and in the master suite to provide a multi-room sound system. The house has also been comprehensively pre-wired, so the home automation solution can be tailored to incorporate future requirements including expanded WIFI network, UHD video distribution and home cinema.
“We have created an advanced home automation system that delivers smart control throughout the house," said Julian Synett, Managing Director of Interphone. "It has been professionally designed and installed in line with Chartwell’s precise requirements, while possessing the flexibility and scalability to meet the personal tastes of prospective owners. By working closely with Chartwell at the concept and planning stage we have ensured that the home and building controls are part of a fully integrated system embedded in the building infrastructure.”
