A successful network infrastructure needs to be planned and considered with care for the best results. Our experience combined with ongoing education means we deliver robust network solutions suitable for a range of purposes from basic internet connectivity to high bandwidth situations such as 4K video.

Project Details

The residence incorporates the following features

  • Centralised Entertainment stored in a custom AV Rack
  • Multiple wireless access points for internet connectivity throughout the residence
  • Multiroom Music & Radio distribution to 10 Zones
  • CAT6 Network infrastructure for convenience & future expansion
  • HD distributed video content from SkyHD & Blu-ray
  • Programmable wand remote controls

  • Access to UK on-demand streaming content via Smart Hub Televisions

Centralised Entertainment
By using a Middle Atlantic AV Rack we could neatly stack all of the Sky Receivers, Blu-ray, Server & Amplifies conveniently out of sight in a downstairs cupboard in the utility room. To manage the excess heat generated by the equipment a fan ducted warm air away. This was installed at the onset of renovations.

HD Television
Because picture quality was important to the client we fitted an 8×8 HD Matrix. This has the ability to take in up to eight HD sources with audio & deliver that content to any 8 HD Television.

Multiple TVs need Multiple Sources & lots of control
Two SkyHD receivers, music server, Blu-ray, radio & more are also stacked in the rack for convenient control via an ELANg HS Series controller. This solution provides tablet, smartphone & dedicated wand control via the WiFi network.

The size of this house demands not only nine WiFi Access points but an enterprise class solution so occupants can move freely from one end of the house to the other without interruption to their internet connectivity. To this end, we analysed the plans & surveyed the structure during renovations to determine the optimum locations for the access points.

Mayfair Fashion Boutique

Mayfair, London Erdem Fashion Boutique

Project Description

Client:  Erdem Moralıoğlu – Fashion designer
Location:   Mayfair, London
Project Time Table:   7 Days Over 6 Months
Year Completed:   2014
Value:   £8,000 – £8,500
Commision:   P.Joseph, Interior Design

World class fashion designer Erdem decided to open a clothing boutique in one of the most fashionable shopping districts in the world, Mayfair, London. With clients such as Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, wife of Prince William, he needed something extra special for his flagship store.
Working with interior designers P. Joseph, we developed a solution that delivered on performance visual impact.

The Challenges

Working in London brings with it additional logistical difficulties plus Erdem works to pretty exacting standards. His fashion boutique was to be no exception in delivering an experience that reflects his sense of style and chic.
Designer Philip Joseph had already rejected one proposal from a competitor when he came to FINITA.
The pressure was on for us to deliver a solution that met the exacting criteria of the brief. Easy for staff and visiting clients to use, robust enough for continuous daily use and visually low impact inline with the minimalist decor.

Fortunately this was nothing we at FINITA were not used to.

Project Details

This project had the following features installed

  • Multiple wireless access-points for uninterrupted internet connectivity over wifi
  • CAT6 Network infrastructure
  • Amplified multi-zone Music & Radio server
  • Fully concealed Invisible speakers
  • Independent volume & content control in every zone
  • Control lighting system from Mode Lighting
  • In-ceiling Speakers in the dressing rooms

For a really clean look, we recommended Sonance Invisible Series speakers. These fully concealed speakers are mounted into the plasterboard then plastered & painted over. The end result is high fidelity sound from wall or ceiling but with no grill to disturb the lines of the interior.
As well as the showroom all three changing rooms have their own stereo sound. This can be independently controlled or combined with the main retail areas. The listening level can be set for each speaker then controlled with a single slider via an app installed on a smartphone or tablet.

Music Server
Powering the speakers is a P series Nuvo amplified music server for high-quality lossless playback from FLAC or MP3 via a memory stick or portable hard drive connected to any one of the multiple USB sockets. It can also stream from a handheld device over the WiFi or access hundreds of radio stations via the internet.

Wireless Networking
From ground floor to basement the site boasts a wireless mesh network for uninterrupted internet access using Ubiquiti access points. Their low profile design is small & discreet with no obvious antennae & the indicator lights can be switched off from the control management platform making them very unobtrusive.

Another great install from Finita that met the client’s expectations.

Ibiza Holiday Villa

Ibiza Holiday Villa

Ibiza Holiday Villa, Outside Music

Project Description

Location:  The Island of Ibiza
Project Time Table:   21 Days Over 21 Months
Year Completed:   2013
Value:   £45,000- £50,000
Commision:   Client/Owner

A comfortable island retreat and a home away from home. It feels relaxed and comfortable for family life and can easily be adapted for entertaining large numbers too. With WiFi and discrete speakers situated throughout the residence it makes the most of the indoor-outdoor lifestyle and the stunning grounds in which it is situated.

The Challenges

Properties abroad bring with them additional logistical challenges. On the island of Ibiza product and materials are in short supply. Almost everything has to be shipped to site, in particular specialist equipment. Never deterred the team at Finita treated this fabulous multi-million Euro holiday home just like any other project but with a few local differences.

Having worked for the client before we were very clear about what was expected from us. The client expected a home from home. This meant UK Sky+HD and on demand services like BBC iPlayer. Additional challenges came from London-based interior design firm Studio Ilse who had strict ideas about our products which should be heard & not seen. After two years of collaboration, the end result is spectacular.

Project Details

This project had the following features installed

  • Multiple wireless access-points for 100% connectivity including outside in the garden & by the pool
  • Amplified multi-zone Music & Radio plus iPod Dock
  • CAT6 Network infrastructure for convenience & future expansion
  • Synchronised Music collection between two properties
  • UK SkyHD
  • Programmable wand remote controls
  • 100watt Marine grade outdoor speakers
  • Satellite Broadband
  • Access to UK on-demand streaming content

Speakers
Outdoor entertainment was just as important as indoor but had to withstand the very changeable climate of the Mediterranean seasons, wet winters & blisteringly hot summers. For outdoor areas around the pool, lawn & children’s play area we installed Niles Marine OS Series speakers discreetly secured in the undergrowth. Backed up by a 100watt amplifier a pair of these 125watt units can really pack a punch & fill an outside area with beautiful crisp sounds. Inside we chose dual stereo ceiling comes from Niles Si Series to minimise the number of grills on display & take advantage of what little ceiling cavity there was. These performed perfectly in the open plan areas of the house.

Music Server
Already using an Autonomic music server in their London residence we were able to synchronise the collection between both properties so that the owner had access to the same music & radio library as they were used to at home.

UK TV & Satellite
The client insisted this holiday property had to be a home from home & Sky Satellite was no exception. So that is what we did. All the usual UK channels including Sky Sports beamed around the property in HD with the added benefit of on-demand services like BBC iPlayer. It didn’t matter that this was Ibiza we made it work.

Internet
The island of Ibiza has notoriously poor internet connectivity, just ask a local. After much research, we settled on a Satellite broadband from TooWay. Fault free & consistent 30 megabits internet connectivity. Perfect for video conference, on-demand services & general internet use.

Luxury Terrace House

Project Description

Location:   The Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire
Project Time Table:   18 Days Over 5 Months
Year Completed:   2015
Value:   £8,000- £12,000
Commision:   Property Owner

Having already spent ten years in the residence from new this home owner felt it was time for a serious renovation of the ground floor. Built by a developer the terrace came with a basic music distribution and control system that had not stood the test of time. The client liked the principal but wanted something dependable and up to date as a whole home entertainment platform.

The Challenges

Only the ground floor was going through major renovation which meant here we could install any necessary cable that suited our requirements. The first floor and basement were not to be touched however. This was a problem since the old entertainment system had failed through out the property. Our challenge was to find a new better system solution that could meet the client requirements but use the existing cabling on the first floor and basement, so as to create minimal disruption to the decor in these areas.

We conducted a through site survey examining and testing the existing cable that had been originally installed to support the old system 10 years prior. A Lot can happen in the world of technology in 10 years but after a lot of research and some experimentation we were able to find the perfect fit for the clients requirements.

Project Details

This project included the following features

  • Improved wireless networking for internet connectivity over wifi
  • Amplified multi-zone Music, Radio & iPod Dock
  • Programable wand remote controls
  • Stereo ceiling speakers per zone
  • SkyHD four Zone Video & Audio control (Multi-room TV)
  • Control lighting system from Lutron Lighting

Speakers
We started by changing the basic 6inch unbranded ceiling speakers for Niles Ci Series of the same size. This upgrade offered a quick low-cost improvement. Next was to remove the failing control panels & backfilled the cavities for a clean uncluttered finish to the walls. To power, the speakers a Niles multi-zone amplifier with built-in radio was introduced & an iPod Dock.

Managing the Entertainment
Along with the amplifier & dock, there was also a sky receiver & Blu-ray player now being housed in a spare cavity inside the hall coat cupboard. We employed a URC Control unit to communicate with all of the source equipment. Each zone, kitchen, living room, bedroom & guest room had its own URC Universal custom programmable remote capable of controlling any of the source equipment & delivering audio or picture to any speaker or television.

Extras
We also had the time & budget to upgrade the WiFi thereby ironing out those black spot gremlins & introduce a Lutron mood lighting setup.

Buckinghamshire Country Retreat - Smart Home Installation

Project Description

Location:   The Chilterns, Buckinghamshire
Project Time Table:   21 Days Over 24 Months
Year Completed:   2017
Value:    £65,000 – £70,000
Commision:   Property Owner

This was once the site of a dilapidated farmhouse in desperate need of redevelopment. After much deliberation and wrangling with local planning, this property got a makeover and expansion which took 2 years to complete.

Finita joined the project early on which was good because it provided us with time to adapt to the clients changing requirements over the course of the build.

The Challenges

The clients appreciated that they needed help but were unclear about exactly what they wanted. Initially, we shared some ideas and carried the favourites through to a proposal which was accepted. We began working on the brief by supplying the necessary cable to meet the specification.

Over the course of the project, the client’s requirements changed as they expressed an interest in adding more control to the property which was to become there country retreat from the city on the weekends. Consequently, remote access became very high on their list of priorities and we had to adapt accordingly adding heating and lighting control. Fortunately, we plan all our installations with expansion in mind so the expanded client brief was easy to accommodate.

Project Details

This residence incorporates the following features

  • An Active Wireless MESH network comprising multiple access points for internet connectivity across the whole residence
  • Multi-room music & radio in 11 spaces/rooms including outside
  • Tablet, smartphone and wand remotes for convenient control of the whole home
  • Invisible speakers in the media room, master bedroom, ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe a for clean look
  • Centralised entertainment declutters the rooms of equipment
  • 4K audiovisual multi-room distribution. 7 televisions have access to Sky+HD, Blu-ray, AppleTV and Freeview
  • Mood & Control lighting solution from Rako Lighting adds control and security
  • A whole-home control platform from ELAN Home Systems

Speakers
We used a mixture of in-ceiling speakers from Niles Audio and Sonance Invisible series speakers all driven from an ELAN audio matrix amplifier combined with a Sonance DSP Amplifier for use with the invisible speakers.

Managing the Entertainment
The whole home is controlled via an ELAN Home Systems controller. Its capable of managing the lights, heating and entertainment from a single smartphone app. A music & radio streaming service was introduced by repurposing two SONOS Connects and adding some AppleTV’s for additional Air-to-play services.

Whole Home WiFi
Being as the property was far enough away from its neighbours not to experience wireless interference we opted for a managed MESH network from Luxel networking.

Lighting Control
Top of the client’s agenda was convenience. British designed RAKO Lighting was employed throughout the property

Heating
The under-floor heating installed by the plumbers was tied back to Heatmiser control. It was a simple exercise to link the Heatmiser into the ELAN control interface and offer simple on/off temperature control.
