Case Study: Spice Quay
Spice Quay is a landmark river-fronted development, offering luxury living in a prestigious London postcode.
The previous penthouse flat in the building has been converted into two high end apartments. The owner, having already installed Loxone in his own home, realised the value of integrating home automation into his development properties, and turned to Loxone Gold Partner, JSJ Smart Homes to take care of the transformation.
About The Project
Spice Quay is perfectly positioned for those living and working in the capital. The apartments have a unique charm and boast the imposing Tower Bridge as their backdrop. Both of the apartments enjoy a private balcony with outstanding river views; residents can enjoy a spot of al-fresco dining to the soundtrack of the Thames below.
Simple Sensor, Smart Control
Motion Detectors in all bathrooms, en-suites, toilets & hallways serve multiple functions. When a resident walks into the bathroom, the motion sensor triggers the lighting to come on at a brightness level that suits the time of day.
In addition, the ventilation fan is activated after five minutes to clear the steam from the shower and runs until humidity levels have returned to their usual levels. Residents can choose to have their favourite music play upon entering the bathroom, and zoning in the en-suite bedrooms ensures that their music is seamless between the bedroom and bathroom.
The motion sensors also form part of the smart alarm system and keep watch over the apartment when all the residents are asleep, or when they’ve gone out.
Energy Efficient Luxury Living
The lighting throughout the apartments, including the recessed LED lighting in the living area is controlled by Loxone. This ensures that the lighting stays as efficient as possible - lights are only brought at certain times of day or when the brightness level falls below a specified threshold.
Zoned heating contributes to the energy efficiency of the apartments and JSJ Smart Homes were also able to offer smart cooling through Mitsubishi indoor air conditioning units which were integrated with Loxone.
