Northern Suburbs – Sydney, Australia
The Hale Nui Project is a private residence boasting some of the most advanced building technology to seamlessly control the 5 bedroom 6 bathroom home.
The KNX and Basalte system controls not only the lighting, blinds, air-conditioning, heating, toilet flushes and audio, but also directly integrates into the incoming energy supply to ensure the home never draws too much load from the grid.
To combat this, the home is fitted with a 12kW PV array attached to a complete off-grid battery backup system, which is monitored by KNX Energy meters sending out notifications to the owner and system integrator prior to switching off non-essential loads, known as load shedding.
The project was not without its challenges, this was a difficult renovation with few architectural plans, an everchanging scope of works, and was completed from 2020 to Mid-2021 when COVID was at its peak in Australia.
In Control Automation was lucky to be working on this project with a dedicated Team “Hitch Electrical” and “Immaculate Constructions” and a very understanding and easy going homeowner.
This project was every System Integrators’ dream, our clients’ aim was to utilise creativity and technology to simplify and enhance their day to day living, this gave In Control Automation the freedom to use the right technology and hardware for the task at hand.
