Yallambee: Sutton Forest
We headed down south to the beautiful Sutton Forest to work on this holiday home. This was another job which had an existing C-bus system that was very outdated and confusing to use, with a cluttered interface that didn’t make much sense to the user. Updating the system was particularly important to the customer as this beautiful country home has just recently become available for people to rent out. With 7 bedrooms, its own private golf course, and breathtaking views, renting this home out would be an incredible experience for anyone, however, guests had to consult a manual just to know how to turn lights and air conditioning on and off! We’ve simplified the interface and added indicators which gently glow when a light is on in a particular area. We also added ‘Scenes’ which are very convenient for the owners since they can activate the ‘Goodbye’ Scene remotely from their smartphone which turns everything off and shuts all blinds, giving them peace of mind that nothing is left on when guests leave so they don’t have to travel from Sydney after every visitor to check.
