The Hudson River Estate

The Hudson River Estate

    The existing integration of this historic 60-acre property on the Hudson River just north of New York City was under-engineered and barely made use of current technology. That’s when Osbee was called in.
     
    We met with the homeowners and discussed their needs and desires, from being able to surf TV channels and listen to Howard Stern on the radio at the same time, to being able to have complete control of the property from the garage workshop.
     
    We told them all these things were doable, and explained that our biggest task was to step back and engineer a system that would provide complete control from anywhere. Because with a big estate, it’s The Big Picture that counts.
    • Another of the Crestron TS-1542 15-inch touchscreens allows family members to choose music, talk to anyone anywhere in the home via the intercom, and adjust the climate in the Spa without getting up from their lounge chair.

    With the electronic gate openers, alarm system, intercom, and security cameras easily controlled by Osbee’s custom iPhone app, entry to the estate is safe and convenient.

    The family can enjoy 4K movies, cable television, AM/FM and satellite radio, Blu-ray music and video, and streaming Internet media throughout the home and grounds via the Crestron DigitalMedia™ 4K audio and video distribution system.
     
    Here at one of the two outdoor entertainment areas on the estate, Osbee integrated a 98-inch Ultra HD 4K TV and weatherproof outdoor speakers to create a casual home theater that’s perfect for relaxing get-togethers with friends and family on warm summer evenings.

    An elegant keypad controls the wireless dimmers of multiple light fixtures in both the Foyer and the Dining Room. The backlit feature makes it easy to see the buttons in any light.

    Whether the family uses a Laptop, iPad, or handheld remote control, selecting a movie, TV channel, music, or streaming Internet content to enjoy in the Family Room is easy and intuitive. The 65-inch Ultra HD 4K TV and 5.1 Surround Sound speakers take advantage of the latest audio and video technology.

    The Crestron TSW-1052 10-inch wall-mounted touchscreen in the Kitchen -- one of 20 in the residence -- displays Osbee's custom touchscreen design based on the home’s floorplans. This simple visual representation of the house makes it easy for the family to get to the area they wish to control quickly and easily.

    The 35 motorized solar roller shades throughout the home provide comfort and protection for the furnishings and artwork in the residence. The ultra-quiet mechanisms can all be controlled by any touchscreen in the house, by local wall-mounted keypads in each of the rooms, or from the homeowners’ iPads and iPhones using Osbee’s custom app.

    The husband's iPad serves as a portable system controller from chairside in the Living Room, his office in New York City, or from anywhere in the world.

    To dim the ambient light and enhance the viewing quality of the 65-inch Ultra HD 4K TV mounted over the fireplace, motorized solar roller shades in the Family Room can be quietly adjusted using an iPad, iPhone, Crestron touchscreen, or wall-mounted keypad.

    The single wall-mounted keypad in the Foyer controls five different groups of light fixtures that would require several switches in more traditional installations.
