The Art Collector's Townhouse

    • At this 9,000-square-foot Manhattan residence, Osbee turned a jumble of standalone systems for security, intercom, climate control, lights, shades, audio, video, and Internet into a fully integrated system.

    At this 9,000-square-foot Manhattan residence, Osbee turned a jumble of standalone systems for security, intercom, climate control, lights, shades, audio, video, and Internet into a fully integrated system.

    The homeowner loved the large 15-inch touchscreens and asked us to make them central to our system design. The ten touchscreens now in the residence make it easy to control all the systems, monitor the security cameras — and especially, to set the perfect illumination for the constantly changing world-class art collection on display throughout the home — with just the touch of a button.

    • Osbee programmed and installed a single elegant keypad to control multiple preset lighting scenes for the Hallway and Staircase Gallery.

    • To transform the Family Room into a casual Home Theater, Osbee installed a Digital Projection high-definition projector on a ceiling lift and a motorized Screen Research projector screen in a ceiling enclosure, with Bowers & Wilkins surround sound speakers. Crestron motorized draperies control the ambient light levels in the room for perfect viewing any time of day or night.

    Using the handheld remote, touchscreen, iPad or iPhone, a high-definition projector and screen drop down from the ceiling, transforming the Family Room into a casual Home Theater with full surround sound. Motorized draperies control the ambient light levels in the room for perfect viewing any time of day or night.

    • With all the light fixtures, Crestron CLW-DIMEX-P wireless dimmers, and Crestron INET-CBDEX-P wireless keypads connected to the central Crestron InfiNET lighting system, Osbee had the ability to program lighting scenes to change the illumination of any room with just one touch.

    With all the light fixtures controlled by the central system, lighting scenes can be programmed to change the illumination of any room with just one touch. Here, the lighting in the Dining Room can be changed from gallery lighting to dining lighting to party lighting in an instant.

    • The Crestron motorized solar shades Osbee installed in the Living Room provide privacy, ambient lighting control, and protection for the art collection.

    • The lights, shades, and electronic art collection in the Study – which once required a wall-full of unmatched switches – are all now controlled by a single Crestron INET-CBDEX-P Cameo keypad. Osbee specified a screwless designer faceplate that snaps onto the keypad for a clean finish.

    The lights, shades, and electronic art collection in the Study – which once required a wall-full of unmatched switches – are all now controlled by a single keypad. The screwless designer faceplate snaps onto the fixture for a clean finish.

    • In the upstairs hallway, another custom Crestron INET-CBDEX-P wireless wall-mounted keypad controls lights and Crestron motorized solar shades in several areas, as well as the electronic art. Osbee and the designer chose a  Crestron CBD-FP-ASCENT-P/NKL Ascent Solid Metal screw-less faceplate in Polished Nickel to compliment the modern art collection.

    In the upstairs hallway, another custom wall switch controls lights and shades in several areas, as well as the electronic art. Or the homeowner can select the “party” button to instantly set the mood for entertaining.

    • The Crestron TS-1542 15-inch wall-mounted touchscreen Osbee installed in the Study is equally at home with the extensive collection of electronic art in the room.

    • The original standalone surveillance system could only show one camera feed at time on a small, hard-to-see 3-inch black-and-white screen. Osbee upgraded the cameras and custom-programmed the system so that now the homeowner can view up to four RGB camera feeds simultaneously.

    The original standalone surveillance system could only show one camera feed at time on a small, hard-to-see 3-inch black-and-white screen. Now, the homeowner can view up to four RGB camera feeds simultaneously from any touchscreen in the home, and can converse with and admit visitors at the front door via the integrated intercom and electronic door openers.

    • The Crestron TS-1542 15-inch touchscreen Osbee placed at the entry to this Bedroom gives access to all features of the system, including audio and video sources, temperature control, and the intercom.

    • Designed and engineered to be easily serviced and infinitely upgradable, all the technology components in the Middle Atlantic Equipment Rack placed in a corner of the mechanicals room is the brain of this Osbee smart home.

    • With every wire carefully labelled and tucked neatly in its place by Osbee's meticulous installation crew, the inside of the Equipment Rack is given the same attention to detail as all the other components of the system.
