The idyllic city of Montpellier, a few hours away from Paris, is the location of a stunning fully automated villa, fitted throughout with high end technology.

MultiZone, CEDIA Home Technology Professional Member company, was tasked with the extremely ambitious task of creating a fully automated home. The client’s main requirement was for an easy to use control system that could be used by people of different generations.

The villa has controlled lighting management and shutters, central control modules via iPads and iPhones, security and fire alarm, video surveillance and an intercom phone which is all completed via Crestron’s home automation management.

The living room is the main highlight of the project, fitted with a 65’ SONY LED TV which delivers outstanding video quality. The home cinema system is fitted amongst Catena lounge furniture which stylishly hides the electronics necessary for the space. Bowers and Wilkins CCM816 speakers have been built into the ceiling to deliver an exceptional audio performance along with the Yamaha RX-A 1010 amp. The BW PVI Subwoofer is an exceptional model which completes the multimedia room.

Sonos Multiroom Connect Amp works with in-wall Bowers & Wilkins speakers which are fully functional throughout the villa so the family can enjoy music whether they may be in the indoor/outdoor pool, spa, jacuzzi and steam room or alternatively from the kitchen, bedroom, gym or office.

The perfectly designed functions of the Southern France Villa can all be controlled via an iPad and recharged through an integrated iPad support LaunchPort.

MultiZone worked with the designers of the house from the beginning, so that all the wiring was done during the design process. All of the electronics are condensed in a patch panel, creating a stylish sleek finish.
