Vacation Ski Home Wows with Automation, AV
By Grant Clauser
Utah ski retreat includes full Crestron automation system, lots of other amazing amenities.

One might think that when you build a new winter retreat along the slopes of a Park City, Utah, ski mountain that the only thing on your mind would be the powder and the lift lines. The California technology enthusiast who owns this award-winner also wanted to make sure his new home was as cutting-edge as his skis.

When consumer electronics (CE) pro Taylor Syphus of Lifestyle Electronics in Park City was introduced to the homeowner, he knew he was facing someone with big expectations. The owner had a technology background and a pretty good idea of what integrated electronic systems were capable of doing, so Syphus gave him the works.

The 10,000-square-foot home, mere feet from a Deer Valley ski run, allows the owners to enjoy both the beauty of the outdoors, plus the comforts of indoor convenience and luxury. The operating system of the home is Crestron DigitalMedia, which delivers video to 20 TVs and audio to 32 separate zones.

Each TV can be controlled by its own Crestron MTX handheld remote. Larger touchscreens, including a 12-inch unit centrally mounted on a kitchen wall, are spaced throughout the residence. The owners can also tap into any aspect of the system through their iPads or a computer.

Large Samsung LCD TVs positioned throughout the house provide access to DirecTV DVRs, two Apple TVs, a 400-disc Sony Blu-ray player, while SpeakerCraft architectural speakers in the ceilings and walls deliver music.

Wow, 10k sq. ft., I always wondered about the square footage of some of those Deer Valley homes. Appears to be an awesome install as well. Total control - a tech enthusiast dream home.
