Multiroom Audio

Customlounge has teamed up with leading multiroom audio manufacturers who bring together the professional audio sound to you without compromising the aesthetics.  The speakers are edgeless with paintable grilles which blend very well into your aesthetics without compromising the quality. If you want to go a step further, invisible speakers are also available, great for places where you don’t want speakers to be seen and your guests keep guessing where the quality music is coming from!

You can have multiple sources for Home Audio distributed throughout the house including radio stations, which can be controlled by your remote control, touchpanel, your iPad or your iPhone!

We all know that not everyone likes Bob Marley (do they?!), so we give each member of the family access to their own music in different rooms, how cool is that!

Whatever format your music is in or whichever device it is in, leave it to us to work out so we can make them available for you  to access anytime anywhere within your home.

We all know how iPod has revolutionised the way we listen to our music, so we also provide you iPod dock throughout the house which allows you to play your music anywhere and control it from your remote or iPhone. This solution is ideal for parties where you can let your guests play their music while you still have the control.

Distributed Media

On average, every household has at least 3 or more media devices and 4 or more remotes.

Customlounge can help you consolidate all your content from:

• DVDs,
• Blu ray, 
• Hard Disk,
• USB etc.

into one media server that allows you to watch your movies and listen to your music from anywhere in the house.

Our programmers are so clever that you can pause the film in the cinema room and continue in the bedroom.


Imagine being on a very comfy cinema chair watching your favourite movie which you can control with a nice backlit remote or touch panel. Not only that you can also control the lights and ambience of the room. You can have this priceless experience from your living room, every day if you like!

Home entertainment industry has been revolutionised with the cutting edge technology available to every home owner which allows you to have the best cinema experience from your living room.

The idea of being able to digitise all your movies and music into one place and then access it from anywhere in your home, is indeed very tempting!

Lighting Control

Great Homes and buildings often get let down by their lighting design.

 

Simply by utilising the day light saving and establishing a correlation between natural and artificial light saves upto 30% in energy bills.

 

 

Customlounge works with prestigious Architects, Property Developers and private home owners to consult and design their lighting projects. We have many years of experience in lighting design so we can create all desired effects for the property.

 

 

Not only we can create different ambience whether it be via led lighting, or cleverly programming the lighting of the property so it dims automatically if there is enough sunlight coming.

 

 

We can also integrate our lighting control system with the AV control system so when you switch to ‘Home Cinema’ lights will automatically dim down to 10% and inwall led lights will come up to give you that cinematic ambience.

 

 

Climate Control

According to research, just by using automation an average person or company can save upto 30% on their energy bills.

The is not all about saving you bills either but at Customlounge we believe that it is our responsibility to help you reduce your carbon foot print because we can help you do it.

 

 One of our commercial properties clients has 37 properties all over London, and we calculated that just by switching to Lighting Automation they would more than £2million within 5 years.

We can do some clever programming to help you save our planet.



 

How many times have you gone into a home, building or office and although there is extreme daylight in their reception but yet their lights are on at 100%. With our industry leading technology, we can install sensors that can automatically detect the outside light and dim the inside light automatically. This can also be programmed vice versa so if the light outside is getting dimmed, then the inside light can be increased to 50% or more.

Let’s take this a step further using your blind control. If your blind is open, the effect of having air conditioning is minimised with the sun temperature. Our sensors will detect this and automatically close the blinds when air conditioning is on. This can also be linked to occupancy sensor, if there is no one in the room, and then the whole room light, air conditioning/heating etc. will get switched off automatically after 30 mins.

There are many more creative ways to reduce the carbon footprint with the help of Customlounge. Every project is unique and has different opportunities to save energy, but there is always an opportunity to save energy we are serious about doing our bit!

Security

We provide state of the art CCTV cameras throughout the house, keyless locks that can be controlled remotely. We also provide the door entry system suitable for residential and commercial properties.

Your security can be integrated with your lighting and Audio Video. If for instance your CCTV picks up a sensor then your outdoor lights can come up at 100% so if any intruder is even think of anything would simply give up.

Another popular feature is holiday mode where your house operates (light, TV, curtain etc.) as normal when you are away on holiday so burglars think that someone is at home and it deters them from breaking in.

Outdoor Remote Access

Residential Smart Grid Solutions 

You’ve probably heard the phrase “smart grid” in relation to energy use. You might have even heard that it will change the way we use energy. But what exactly is the smart grid and what can you expect from it?

What is the Smart Grid? 

In general terms, the smart grid is the modernization of today’s electricity grid, with improved technology to help save energy, reduce your electricity bills, and decrease brownouts and blackouts. The smart grid features two-way communication—between you and the utility company—so that you can see how much electricity you’re using, when you’re using it, and how much it costs. 

One of the major components of the smart grid is demand response, meaning a utility will work to decrease electricity demand during peak hours. Utilities will offer lower prices for using electricity during off-hours when demand for electricity is low.

Benefits of Residential Smart Grid Solutions 

A smarter grid will change the way you use electricity by giving you the ability to manage your home’s energy use and costs, while improving the quality and reliability of your power.

How does it work?

 

 

 

The smart grid solution will offer you direct control of lighting, HVAC, shades, and plug-in devices as well as control of third-party devices. The system will also display your real-time energy use and analyze trends to identify additional ways you can save energy. 

Your smart grid solution will receive messages sent to you from your utility about how much energy you’re using, when you’re using it, and how much it’s costing you — all in real time via a smart meter or server. The smart grid solution will automatically respond to price changes and energy events, such as times of peak demand, by cutting back on the amount of energy used by your lights, shades, HVAC, and certain appliances. That, in turn, will save you money. 

You can also automate and control your entertainment systems, lighting, security, and temperature by defining presets.

EMS 100 

The Control4®’s EMS 100 helps utilities optimize load management, but was designed first and foremost with the consumer in mind. The solution delivers an engaging in-home experience that exchanges up-to-the minute consumption data between customer and utility and provides intelligent automation and control of smart devices throughout the house. The EMS 100 was built on an open, standards-based platform to simplify integrationwith utility-owned back-end systems.
