TNAH buildershow LSC Builder Two Trails Blue Heron Home Innovation TNAH


The TNAH 2015 encompasses many features in technology to make this home a one of a kind. Technology should simplify your life, not complicate it and The New American Home does just that by blending desert-contemporary styling with high technology. The home demonstrates the capabilities of an integrated home automation system. When entering the home, the tour guide will initiate several functions at the touch of a button using a Crestron seven-inch tablet-style touch screen. The doors will open, the lights will adjust to an appropriate scene (depending on the time of day), and the shades will open in certain areas.

As guests move from room to room, they will have the opportunity to control technology in each room, including audio, video, home theater, security, lighting, shades, and more. They will get a feel for how simple and intuitive the touch screen is to use and navigate.

Integrated by Design

The home will be the first of its kind to feature a completely integrated home technology solution from one manufacturer. Crestron will provide the system backbone, as well as the main features of the system – from the wiring infrastructure to the motorized shades. The home will also feature some new Crestron products, including the ultra-sleek TSW touch screens.

The advantage to working with one brand throughout the entire project is that Crestron products are Integrated by Design to deliver complete home technology solutions. Integrated home solutions seamlessly communicate together in an intelligent way to simplify life. It encompasses much more than just lighting and shade control. Today’s modern home must combine lighting, climate, shades, home entertainment, security, and more on a single platform. 

Mobile Control

Your mobile device is only as powerful as the control system behind it. The Crestron mobile app allows homeowners to monitor, manage and control various systems remotely, including the security system and surveillance cameras, from one fully customizable interface on their personal laptop, Apple® or Android® device. Control all of your televisions, movie players, music, and more or monitor and adjust your home’s lighting, climate, shades, and security system – anytime, anywhere.

Mobile control also makes it easy for sales agent and the builder to demonstrate the technology, whether they are walking through the home or meeting with a potential buyer offsite.

Energy Management

The home will relay how simple it is to create scenes and programs that enable greater energy efficiency. For example, selecting the “Away” mode on the security system will arm the system, lower the shades, dim or turn off the lights, and adjust the HVAC system to a pre-set level based on the time of year – and all that functionality will occur at the touch of one button. This type of system enables the client to analyze energy consumption, turn lights on or off, adjust heating/cooling set points, and edit response settings.

The Network

One of the most important elements of the modern connected home is the strength of the wireless network. Eagle Sentry has worked closely with Luxul on the design and testing of the network to ensure wall-to-wall coverage, as well as coverage in the front and back yards. Wireless coverage must extend beyond the regular walls of the home to accommodate the outdoor living environment.

Outdoor Living

The house features an indoor/outdoor experience. As guests move from the family room and kitchen towards the back of the home, the automated pocket doors allow the house to flow into the pool and patio area. Behind the master bedroom, lies an outdoor daybed and rejuvenation room.

Water Features

Unique water features are displayed inside and outside the home, including a waterfall that reflects its appearance onto a still pool, using a projector.

Dedicated Home Theater

Crestron lets you indulge in luxury with a single touch of a button. Imagine with just a single touch the lights dim, the shades close, the plasma TV turns on and your favorite movie begins.

Accentuating the behind-the-scenes technology

The equipment racks will be displayed in the back of the dedicated theater. A glass wall in front of the racks will allow the customers to get a close look at the technology.
