GYM SYSTEMS: Fitness Technology success gives rise to Fitness Equipment distribution.
House Systems, New York, NY, has completed two high profile model showroom media installations in Sky House and The RiverHouse. Both properties are large new construction multi-family high-rise residential buildings in the heart of Manhattan. The showrooms demonstrate the latest technologies in home automation and media entertainment.
"The integration of new home media technologies in our Sky House model home expresses a modern standard in our buildings. House Systems' vision and expertise in smart automation design and bespoke entertainment is perfectly geared towards the lifestyle requirements of our residential clients," says Veronica W. Hackett, Managing Partner of The Clarett Group, the property developer.
"Situated on the last and most desirable waterfront property in Battery Park City, Riverhouse is among the most sought after luxury buildings downtown. Striving for Platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, Riverhouse is the Greenest Condominium in Manhattan, introducing a new level of eco-architecture and employing the most cutting-edge environmental technologies. The cutting-edge media technologies embedded throughout our model showroom shows the number of possibilities for outfitting a home to meet our purchasers' specific information needs", says Lori Ann Bender, Sales Director with Riverhouse, One Rockefeller Park.
At both locations, House Systems installed centralized home media control systems complete with in-wall IPOD docking stations, HDTV Plasmas & LCD screens, multi-zone audio systems with in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, home theater with surround sound, digital phone systems, WIFI internet networks, remote controlled climate controls, lighting controls and shade control.
"The NYC real estate market is surprisingly resilient. Developers are holding firm despite poor national economic news in the property sector. New buildings are being outfitted with brilliant hi-tech amenity areas (i.e., screening rooms, gyms, kids play rooms, etc..) and the apartments are being pre-wired in preparation for an assortment of home technologies. Real estate brokers are capitalizing on this and pitching the new home media concept as a differentiation from older less prepared buildings. The buildings are selling through. To a certain extent this technology play is holding the local NYC property market firm", says Tom Beaumont, CEO House Systems.
"Our ability to work intimately with the developers, architects, trades, brokers and ultimately the homeowner is first rate. We are practiced professionals at this and it shows in the quality of our work. Every phase of the installation experience is project managed from the moment we meet the developer to the day the homeowner moves in. As a society we're on the threshold of what is commonly referred to as 'convergent living'. We're blending all the popular technologies (i.e., cell phones, IPOD's, computers, alarms, HVAC, lighting, music, TV, etc…) to work seamlessly together and in harmony with their user's lifestyle. We are systems integrators. This is what we do", says Josh Levinson, Technical Director House Systems.
