The affluent neighbourhood of Chelsea is located in West London between the River Thames and Sloane Square. Countless celebrities have resided and continue to reside in this vibrant area. The King’s Road thoroughfare was built in the 17th century by King Charles II as a private road to Kew Palace and was privately owned by the Crown until 1830.
Chelsea Residence is a single-family home in this area which has been extensively renovated. For the restoration project, the developer contracted James Tillyard from Mosaic for the systems integration. The Mosaic team is comprised of experienced specialists.
Simple elegance is the overriding feature of the the 260 m² house. The multiple bedrooms are not only a veritable treat for the owners, but also their guests. The spacious, bright dining room provides enough room to host large parties. In the evening, the owners can relax in the tastefully furnished living room, or play a round of billiards. Well-chosen pictures adorn the walls in every room. To match the furniture, the owners opted for the Gira E3 touch sensor in brown with aluminium inserts.
Systems integrator, Mosaic, recommended that the client install a KNX system with the Gira X1 server. The solution can do everything a user needs in a single-family home, such as; switch lights on and off, activate light scenes and raise or lower blinds. Four Gira G1s were also installed in the residence. The G1 is a compact room operating device for the KNX system which features both an elegant exterior and an impressive interface design. The solution not only looks accomplished, it is also simple to use. The Gira G1 has a wide range of uses, from lighting and blinds control to room temperature setting, programming of timers, and calling up scenes up to door communication. The Gira G1 can also be used as a home station in combination with the Gira DCS-IP-gateway and a door station video. When the doorbell rings, the device automatically transfers to the door intercom mode. The door station, featuring an integrated camera, gives residents additional security, ensuring that the door will not open for uninvited guests.
