Project Budget £3,000 to £5,000
The homeowner had purchased a property that already benefited from a Lairds of Troon distributed network infrastructure 7 years ago, the client purchased a property with an existing Bose system. The homeowner required to upgrade the property with additional functionality and control of both video and audio distribution systems easily and effectively. The homeowner also upgraded his main TV and invested in a 50” Samsung TV supplied and fitted by Lairds of Troon that complimented the main viewing area of the home.
Customer wish list
Distributed Video system that could easily be controlled via an app on the customer’s smart device that would allow access to his media sources for up to 4 TVs within the home. Existing Bose system to be fully functional and placed in other parts of the home from the existing locations. The customer requested a TV that would complement his new lounge area and be of the right size and style. Existing and new cabling to be re-routed and hidden, all services to be distributed from an AV cab placed in an unused cupboard which would be easily accessible for any maintenance or upgrades to the system in the future.
Retro-fit Solution The property itself was built of solid stone and brick throughout, as this was a retrofit project the cabling had to be distributed throughout the building with minimal disruption to areas where work was not being undertaken. Cabling management The client had existing systems within the home and network cabling distributed throughout, it was therefore essential to ensure that the cabling in place was still functional and re-route some of the existing cabling as well as expanding the system for additional services and incorporate the new layout and positioning of the main AV Cab.
