Project Highlights

This beautiful home is located in Calgary, Alberta Canada.  The home backs onto a large nature reserve with large trees approaching right up to the back yard.


The client wanted to renovate the basement and main floor.  At the top of the wish list was to automate several functions including home theater, multi-room audio and lighting control to name a few.


EVS installed all of the audio/video equipment into the basement, running new wires to support additional features.  EVS upgraded the home theater amplifier to allow for more integration and better control through the Home Automation platform.  EVS also performed a THX video calibration on the TV that would give the theater experience as the director intended.


EVS upgraded the multi-room audio system by installing Russound MCA-C5's expanding the number of audio zones and giving better integration and control through the Home Automation platform.  The client has the ability to choose from local radio, SiriusXM, 50,000+ online radio stations, AppleTV, 5 disc CD changer, cable boxes.


A KeyDigital video distribution system was installed that enables the clients to watch any connected source including 3 cable boxes, 2 AppleTVs, Blu-ray and security camera feeds on any connected TV.


EVS installed a managed Wi-Fi network including Ruckus Wireless Zone Director and two R700 access points.  This allows impressive coverage within the house and allows the client to enjoy his wireless devices throughout the large backyard.


EVS created a custom home automation package for the client and completely re-installed the Lutron Lighting system including the programming.  The improved lighting scenes allows the client to easily control the home.  Several green energy initiatives were put in place to help reduce electrical bills and make a positive impact on the environment.  If the exterior lights are turned on during the day the home automation system automatically turns them off.  The system also uses timeclocks to turn on/off several exterior circuits based on sunrise and sunset.


EVS designed an easy to use Home Automation system that allows the clients to control the home either through custom designed interfaces on remote controls, iPads or iPhones.
