Here are a few excerpts from the article.

Home automation, solar power panels for common area lighting, and environmentally friendly building materials are just a few of the green and tech-savvy features. Daniel Freeman, president of Lenox Homes, LLC, has dubbed 1756 Cole “the Tesla of condominium living.”  

Certified green under the PG&E Multi-Family New Home Energy Program, the condominiums at the Cole come with ENERGY STAR® appliances, tankless water heaters, environmentally-friendly building materials, and abundant use of LED down lighting to name a few, all wrapped in high-end finishes for an elegant aesthetic appeal.

Also in each of the residences, a robust home network system was installed to support a Control4 automation and control system, installed by Paradigm Integration. “The basic Control4 automation system allowed for optional buyer upgrades to be integrated into the system that included controlling audio and video distribution, security system, lighting with scene control, automated window shades, and digital door locks,” said Freeman. The network infrastructure included a structured wiring (Cat6 and RG6 wires) system throughout the residences.

Here are some photos of a condo complex we have been working on for the past year.  We were invited by the builder to do everything from the main door entry system to lighting control and audio/video for the home owners.  Here are a few of the things we did.

Networking and infrastructure for the entire place was a big job.  Additionally we did a surveillance camera system outdoors as well as the interior common areas.

Working with Control 4 for the automation of all of these items and bringing in QMotion for Automated Motorized Shades made these homes truly state of the art!

We worked with the individual home owners and their Interior Decorators to pick from hundreds of fabrics and fascia choices to complete the look and function of these homes.

What a VIEW!!

This has been a fun project.  First of all, the location is beautiful.  More importantly, the client has been fantastic and has asked us to preform some very interesting chores.  Of course we did a Rotel, Bowers & Wilkins music system with a Sumiko ProJect turntable for the main room.

Rotel Integrated amp with Bowers & Wilkins bookshelf speakers , ASW-608 sub and a ProJect turntable.

We have installed a complete Control 4 system along with a VidaBox hard drive music storage system and a Music Bridge for streaming music indoors and out.  In the ceiling of the covered patio area we installed B&W in-ceiling speakers which are also controlled by the Control 4 automation system.

B&W in-ceiling speakers are very near invisible, but sound magical!

Here is a couple of pictures of the irrigation system which is all controlled via the Control 4 automation system.  Our client can not only control the sprinklers but view the water levels in the tanks as well.

We also control lighting on this property. Interior, exterior and specialty art lighting.

It is a spectacular home and a pleasure to work on.

Beautiful room full of music.

And what a view.

 

Aaron needs our help!

Many of you know our friend and co-worker Aaron Benson.  Over the past 25 years he has visited many of your homes in his capacity as one of our Senior Technicians. He has kept us secure, made our music and video easier to use, automated our homes and provided similar services to many of our commercial clients. He has done this with caring skill, a great deal of experience and his wry humor.

Aaron now needs our help.  As some of you may already know Aaron has been battling a liver disorder through all these years and now it has reached the point of requiring a liver transplant.

Aaron is now on a leave of absence as he travels to New Orleans to get in line to receive that liver transplant.  This process is arduous and not without risk.  It is also costly.

The recovery is lengthy and must be done in New Orleans for several months and then at home with his wife and 3 young daughters.

We have no real idea when Aaron will be back to work and earning money again, but we know it is months, not weeks.  Below you will find a link to a “GOFUNDME” page we have set up on his behalf. Additionally, he has provided us with a link to follow his progress as he goes through this arduous process. You can also send comments to him as well as your best wishes; this is something I know he will appreciate and look forward to.

One more thing, there is link to our “SALE” page on our website.  There you will find some great deals and Paradigm will donate 10% of all of those sales through the end of September, to Aaron.

His bills are mounting and he needs all of our help. Any small donation or gesture of support would be appreciated by Aaron, his family and his Paradigm family.

Our best wishes to Aaron and his family. And a great deal of gratitude to you, our valued family of clients.

Team Paradigm
