We just wrapped up an interesting and fun retrofit project at a ranch in Tumalo, Oregon. This project included replacing all the old wiring, replacing the speakers in the home, installing new televisions with Sonos sound bars, installing exterior surveillance cameras in the driveway and barn stalls, and… creating new customized cabinetry for a revamped media room. We were able to get everything finished before the cold snap, so the owner can enjoy her new Control4 home entertainment and automation system!
The first thing that we needed to do on this property was to run new fiber optic cable from an older bunkhouse, where the Internet antenna was housed to the main house and the stable. So we worked with a landscaping company to trench 550 feet from the bunkhouse to the main house, and 350 feet from the bunkhouse to the stables. Fiber optic cables ensured that we could have enough juice for the network.
Because the ranch breeds horse, the owner wanted surveillance cameras installed in each of the six stalls in the stable, so she could keep an eye on the horses at all times. Another exterior camera was installed in the main driveway. Also on the exterior porch, we installed new speakers for great outdoor sound.
Inside the home, we ran new wiring throughout for an updated system. The in-ceiling speakers in the kitchen and living were upgraded and new televisions were installed in the revitalized media room and bedrooms. The TVs all have Sonos sound bars with custom covers.
In the media room, just off the living room, we worked with a local contractor and woodworker to create new custom cabinetry to hold the television, media and media rack. New speakers were installed for stellar surround sound resulting in the perfect place for movie watching.
The entire system is managed, including the heating and cooling, is managed with Control4 home automation!
