When you’re in our line of work, providing Crestron programming for custom smart homes, you come in contact with some pretty amazing residential properties. However, not many compare to this Crystal Bay, Nevada home on the shores of Lake Tahoe. It’s truly exceptional! The exclusive property is more than five acres, with a main residence, an attached guest house, a beach house, and a caretaker apartment.AVPA was brought in to support and test the existing Crestron system, and to recommend any needed upgrades. We worked in conjunction with Sierra Integrated Systems, a Reno-based company that specializes in smart home installations and home automation services.
The main service provided by AVPA was the Crestron programming that would support an upgrade of the home’s lighting—from Lutron Illumination to Lutron QS—and its integration with the Crestron system. Lutron QS allows homeowners to integrate the control of all of their home’s lighting—inside and out—while saving energy at the same time. In addition, AVPA was able to support the existing Crestron programming for all of the home’s subsystems, including audio, video, HVAC, and the funicular. (Yes, this home has its own tram that travels up and down the hillside!)
Creating secure remote access of the home’s systems was also important to the homeowners. AVPA provided the configuration that would allow them to securely monitor and control their home from afar.
While we weren’t the original Crestron programming company used by the homeowners, we continually support the existing system, addressing any issues and providing upgrades as requested. Not all Crestron programming companies are willing to support and upgrade systems not originally programmed by them, but at AVPA, one of our specialties is “takeover projects” like this. We’ve been providing authorized Crestron programming since 2001 and we’re experts at system testing, troubleshooting, and updating existing systems.
