Situated a stone’s throw away from the stunning Ayrshire Coastline Seamill Hydro Hotel boasts the perfect location to appreciate the unrivalled beauty and tranquility Ayrshire has to offer. Overlooking the
Isle of Arran and surrounded by the Ayrshire countryside Seamill Hydro has become the prime location for weddings and a popular holiday destination for families.
This family owned Victorian hotel has undergone major transformations over the past decade to bring
the hotel into the 21st century. To meet the continued demands and expectations of their customers, the hotel has been designed throughout to reflect luxury and comfort that appeals to a wide range of clientele.
To provide the best experience possible the investment in technology and control systems maximized functionality without compromising the look and feel of the hotel. The Glenrosa suite is a prime example of the luxury and opulence this hotel has to offer. The suite was formed from an existing 3 bedrooms
and 3 bathrooms and now comprises of a 35sqm Master bedroom, 20.5 sqm Lounge, 12.5sqm Bathroom and hallway.
Fully decorated throughout to reflect luxury and tranquility, enhanced with stunning bay windows overlooking the Ayrshire coastline and the panoramic view of the mountains of Arran.
The owners desired to provide functionality and access to media systems throughout the suite. No compromise was made to the design & required careful planning and consideration. As the type of systems that
were to be integrated and used by the residents, the emphasis was on ‘effortless control’.
The master bedroom was to benefit from a wall mounted thin bezel large screen TV, the lounge was to incorporate a surround sound system and another thin bezel large screen TV. The bathroom was designed to
fulfill the desire for an area of relaxation and indulgence. Aquavision TV was installed alongside an in-built speaker system, mood lighting and blind control.
Entertainment systems were also to be incorporated into the system that could be accessed from any location this included a PS4 and BluRay player.
Lairds of Troon understood the owners concerns of guests being able to operate the control system independently and be robust enough to withstand constant periods of use and subject to new devices
or systems being introduced to the suite. RTI was integrated due to its supreme flexibility, and its suitability to merge the home and commercial environments seemlessly. RTI provided the owners with the
functionality, capability and easy to use interface that was required from the system.
The users interact with the system using a Sony Experia Tablet and the interface has been designed using the Hotels preferred signage. Guests have the ability to control the Mode lighting system throughout the
suite, control the blinds, access all media on any TV or audio system installed from the user friendly interface installed on the Sony Tablet. RTI has the capability of supporting a number of systems and uses therefore the customer has the option of expanding the system or changing the current system functions, the added support mechanism allowed the owner to access remote support therefore minimizing any disruption to the guests.
Using RTI’s award-winning RTiPanel app, users can operate audio/video and lighting systems directly from any of three RTI input devices located throughout the suite. The user is able to maintain seamless control, even
while moving from room to room. Installed in the two rooms, the KX3 features an LCD touchscreen that allows guests to control the multi-zone audio and media — making all-inclusive automation possible for anyone
by simply tapping a screen.
The Glenrosa Suite is a perfect example of how the hotel maintains that level of opulence using RTI interfaces and control processor, they come together to create automation environment where clients can totally immerse themselves in content and system control. Using the suite of RTI tools, any system or third-party component can be easily added to the control mix, unleashing power and functionality without increasing complexity for the user. Feedback from the installation has been extremely positive, both the hotel owners, management staff and their guests love the system’s practicality and ease of use.
