Wayne and Barry are already plotting the next extension to the project. Drawing on inspiration from the way smartphones have redefined the way we live to push home automation in surprising directions.
“The ability to customise and expand via the continuous innovation and development of the C-Bus system has solved problems, and created an extraordinary home for an engineer with an imagination.” says Barry.
Over the years Barry and Wayne have extended C-Bus controls to outdoor lighting, windows, house lock-up, underfloor heating, gas fires and even some basic lighting control in the kids’ treehouse.
Having the ability to switch on his underfloor heating and heat pumps remotely, so that the house is warm when the family gets home adds comfort and convenience. But also having the ability to turn them off again when they’re unused, saving time and money. Wayne describes these tasks as “housekeeping”.
The bar, submarine, garage and even the tree house are unique environments and C-Bus offered a solution that would allow Wayne and Aimee to programme these spaces in a distinctive way. This installation has been expanded upon over 10 years, thanks to thought from the engineers, and now focus shifts to the future, with plans to expand and evolve this amazing site. This technology opens doors to new possibilities and a framework that ensures homeowners can run wild with their imagination.
