Case Study: RTI Transforms Vacation Home Security and Monitoring With Intuitive System Control and Automation
The following case study was contributed by RTI.
For a recent remodel of a vacation home in Delray Beach, Florida, whole home automation had to mix with security and simple operability. Because this is a second home, keeping the house vandal-free and secure was a pressing concern. The homeowner wanted the home to appear inhabited at all times, to have the ability to remotely interact and monitor the system components from his primary residence in New Jersey, as well as to provide intuitive operation for any guests staying at the house. To incorporate all the system needs on the homeowner’s wish list successfully, integration company RoboteK entrusted RTI’s control and automation solutions to get the job done.
“The wish list of system capabilities continued to evolve throughout the project, so we really had to get creative to accomplish what the homeowner envisioned,” said Craig Simpson, owner and chief engineer at RoboteK. “We knew right away that RTI’s powerful control processors and two-way drivers would allow us to quickly program the system as changes and new additions cropped up.”
