Sewickley, PA - 2013 Retrofit Project

Project Overview

This was an existing project in Sewickley that was in need of some help!  The original installation company built a make shift rack which made it next to impossible to manage wiring.  The lack of wire management caused numerous service issues.  Aside from that, the system was in need of an equipment upgrade so the client could take advantage of current system capabilities from Control4.  The client was eligible to take part in the "existing customer" Controller upgrade promo from Control4 and we were off to work replacing the master controller with a new HC-800.  We gutted the system and installed a new AV rack from Middle Atlantic.  Additionally, we added a new Control4 Matrix Amplifier and lighting control.  The surround sound receiver was also updated with a new Anthem receiver.  We then programmed the system from scratch and added a number of automation features inspired by the client's lifestyle.  We finished things off with custom LED backlighting on the Sony XBR LED and added piece of mind with one of our Honeywell security systems!
