Its got 13.5 kWh storage capacity. Sorry I meant to type above that we couldn’t find panels with more than 330W / panel, our total solar capacity is 7.5kW but…

We couldn’t find bigger panels than 3.3kW so we decided to get Tesla batteries to store the electricity for night time use etc. also getting an electric car so hoping…

I know, really frustrating. Not to mention the costs of having to pay rent while building 😩
Fingers crossed we’ll see some quick progress over the next couple months.

Project is on hold and have been over the last 3 weeks. They’re putting solar up week commencing 24th then electricals and gyprock. Cutting it tight for an Xmas handover…

Guess it all depends on your standards. Control4 is a premium platform and the only comparable would be Crestron. I’m spending $50K on lighting alone, then at least double on…

I’m doing a lot of changes, trick is to do them all at the same time to pay the $1K fee only once. I hired a light designer to get…

Yes we went for the Diplomat facade, pretty much same colour scheme as the display home. Are you doing the Manhattan as well?

I tend to disagree here, I’ve worked with Control4 and other automation platforms in Europe for many years and every new build in Europe is smart wired. Houses as well…

Roof is up and ready for rendering. Things have progressed nicely since start and our site manager Yuosef has been amazing. Very happy with everything so far. We are looking…

I don’t want to use wifi devices, there’s a lag in dimming the lights and they normally don’t dim smoothly. Even Control4’s own zigbee wireless dimmers start playing up when…

Im looking at putting some smart lighting in our house. This requires the electrical wiring to be very different from standard wiring. Essentially we need to run a data cable…

No they did the pool first then benching. We’ve decided to do some last minute retaining walls in the back so that work is starting now as well.

We got all our appliances from Winning Appliances. Wisdom raised a variation and we were credited for the Ilve equipment that was included. Installation is our responsibility but Winnings will…
