In the heart of Santa Clara, California, where modern living meets innovation, we recently had the privilege of implementing a state-of-the-art home technology retrofit for a remodeled residence nestled next to the bustling Santana Row. This transformative project not only enhances the homeowner’s daily life but also sets a new standard for smart homes in the area.
Whole House WiFi with Structured Cabling: The cornerstone of this retrofit is a robust whole-house WiFi system seamlessly integrated into both the main house and Wireless Bridge to the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). Utilizing structured cabling, we ensured reliable and high-speed internet connectivity throughout the entire property. This foundational upgrade guarantees that every corner of the home is covered, offering unparalleled connectivity for work, entertainment, and daily activities.
4K AI Cameras for Enhanced Security: Security is a top priority in any modern home, and our retrofit includes cutting-edge 4K AI cameras strategically placed around the property. These intelligent cameras provide crystal-clear footage and leverage artificial intelligence for advanced features like people and vehicle detection, heat maps, motion tracking, and even anomaly detection. Homeowners can now enjoy peace of mind with a comprehensive and proactive security solution.
In-Wall WiFi Access Points and PoE Switches in Kids Rooms: For the younger members of the household, we went the extra mile by installing in-wall WiFi Access Points in the kids’ rooms. These discrete yet powerful devices ensure a reliable and fast internet connection for online learning, gaming, and streaming. Accompanying these access points are 4-port Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches, providing both connectivity and power to various devices without cluttering the space with additional cables.
UniFi Dream Machine SE – The Ultimate Router: At the heart of the home network is the UniFi Dream Machine SE, in 2024 widely recognized as one of the best routers on the market for both home and small business use. This all-in-one solution seamlessly integrates a high-performance router, switch, and security gateway, offering unparalleled control and visibility over the entire network. With advanced features and an intuitive interface, managing the home network has never been easier.
Entertainment Oasis with Samsung Big Screens and Sonos Sound System: To create a cinematic experience within the home, we installed two stunning 85-inch Samsung Big Screen TVs with sleek mounts, ensuring optimal viewing angles. Paired with this visual extravaganza is a Sonos sound system, featuring the SoundBar Sonos Arc and a Subwoofer. This combination delivers immersive audio that enhances movie nights, gaming sessions, and everyday entertainment.
The completion of this home technology retrofit near Santana Row represents a harmonious fusion of luxury, convenience, and cutting-edge innovation. From whole-house WiFi to advanced security and a top-tier entertainment system, this smart home sets a new standard for modern living in Santa Clara, promising an unparalleled experience for its residents. As technology continues to evolve, so too does the potential for enhancing the way we live, work, and play in the comfort of our homes.
