Heistand ResidenceConvenient day to day living combined with incredible entertainment spaces! Extensive wiring infrastructure allows access to Satellite TV, DVD, Blue Ray, and streaming video on every TV, as well as stereo audio everywhere. The lower level Media/Game room boasts 7.1 surround sound with a 65" display, perfect for movie night or hours of gaming with the kids and grandkids!
From the Homeowner:
We really like what the Control4 system provides. I did a lot of research on what I wanted before we built, and Control4 seemed like the best bang for the buck. Now that we're using it, the flexibility has been great. My wife can have a single button to push for what she wants, and I can have other functions with additional pushes of the same button. Simple for her but lots of layers for me.
When asked about the home's 3 story elevator the homeowner remarked, "We built this place planning to live here the rest of our lives, so we put in several features, even beyond the elevator, to make our lives easier as we grow older. The lighting is managed and the shades are motorized, so we can control day and night mode for the whole house with a couple buttons. We even have one shade programmed to automatically control the afternoon sun by time and season. And the "Home Off" button saves us a lot of time not having to run around turning off lights!" Todd Heistand, Homeowner

Ultimate Basement This incredible Theater/Bar/Music room proves you don't need a lot of space to create a great spot for the whole family! On movie night Mom and Dad spoil themselves with the Cineak 'Fortuny' theater chairs and the kids pull out the bean bags. But whenever possible, the kids take over the chairs and enjoy the Xbox 360. The guitar collection rounds out the room at one end while at the other the custom made maple and stainless steel bar with granite top is ready to entertain friends and neighbors. Nothing but fun!
From the Homeowner:
"Control4 offers tremendous control over all our home systems. We choose a movie from our two Sony 400 disc changers from our touch screen and the Artscreen over the plasma goes up as the TV comes on, the lights dim, and we're ready to go!"
"Whats really great is when the kids leave the basement with the lights and TV on, we just hold down the light switch at the top of the stairs for 3 seconds and EVERYTHING in the basement shuts off. Sweet!"

Carter Lake VillaCasual retirement living on the water with entertainment to spare! This home is fully automated with virtually all of the home's systems working together to provide the "Everyday Easy" lifestyle.
There's music inside and out, instant access to the DVD collection on both floors, and even a camera which provides a view of who's at the front door on the plasma TV when the doorbell is pushed.
From the Homeowner:
"We have three young grandchildren here frequently, so having lots of entertainment available at the touch of a button comes in handy!
We think the Artscreen in our Living Room is really cool. We love having friends over, click on the TV, and watch their eyes get big as the 50" plasma appears from behind the painting!" Roger Wilson, Homeowner
