Project Overview

This project consists of a 5000sqft converted barn and accompanying piggery in the French countryside. Fully wired for intelligent control of lighting, heating, sound and video across five bedrooms, all with en-suites, extensive living areas, gym and spa. The outside lighting, intruder alarm and CCTV are also integrated into the system.

A vital element of the control system for this luxurious holiday home is the abililty to control and monitor the entire grounds over the internet. The property is unoccupied for a large portion of the year, and the client appreciates the piece of mind that comes from being able to monitor the property from afar. In the winter months, the client can turn the heating on remotely before each visit from his iPhone.


  • Scene control of all interior and exterior lighting
  • Intelligent control of heating system comprising solar heating panels, wood burning fire and electric boiler
  • Whole home audio system
  • Surround sound system in living room
  • Multi-camera CCTV of entire property
  • Remote control over the internet

Ongoing Work

The development of the property continues. Future projects include the installation of an intelligently controlled swimming pool, making best use of the available sources of energy, and the renovation of a further barn.
