New York City Brownstone

Our client purchased a 5-story townhouse in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village as well as a smaller townhouse that is situationed on the other side of their courtyard. The smaller home serves as a guest house as well as a family hang-out location separate from the main house. The two homes are separated by a courtyard and are connected via an underground passage which houses the wine tasting area, pilates room and playroom. Due to the size of the project, the client wanted a control system that was easy to use and could provide control of two distinct homes from one user interface. We provided a Savant integrated control system providing control of the audio, video, lighting, motorized window treatments, HVAC, security cameras and security system monitoring.


Because the client liked the ergonomics of the Universal Remote Controls we customized them to be integrated with the Savant system. This allows for control of not only the video sources, but also lighting control and shades. The client also uses their iPads to control the audio, video, lighting, motorized window treatments, HVAC, security cameras and security system monitoring using the Savant App.


Our client purchased a NYC brownstone and an adjacent mini-brownstone. The mini brownstone is accessible via the conjoining couryard or the underground hallway connecting the two buildings. The mini brownstone is primarily a guest house for when out of state family and friends visit but the top floor is the game room with a pool/ping pong table, a bar and a poker table. It is equipped with 4 televisions, 4 separate satellite receivers, a BluRay player, and a video matrix switcher which allows for the viewing of 4 separate programs or sporting events at once. We created a custom user interface through Savant that is easy and intuitive to operate. This user interface provides the user with the ability to control all of the equipment from one user interface. With everything connected via a matrix switcher, the clients can choose to view the same program on all 4 televisions, one program on each television or any combination of programs they choose. They can also control the volume of each television individually through the television speakers or can choose to listen to one video source through the in-ceiling speakers.
