Featured Smart Technology in the 2021 Southern Living Showcase Home We’re proud to announce that Neuwave Systems was the featured technology integrator for the 2021 Southern Living Showcase home in Riverstone Estates in Pittsboro, N.C. This is the first Southern Living Showcase Home to be built in the Triangle and is the first and only of its kind for the whole country. Paragon Building Groups’ main goal was to create a universal design that seamlessly integrates smart technology and thoughtful interior design together while allowing ease of access for anyone – regardless of ability or age. We worked directly with Southern Studio Interior Designs from Cary, NC, to ensure that both the interior design of the home and the technology married well and were in line with the design and flow of the home. The overall end goal was to display the ultimate hospitality while also educating potential buyers on the benefits of Universal Design. Whole Home Control When our team was approached to provide Whole Home Smart Automation, it was a no-brainer to use our trusted partner Control4. We were able to seamlessly integrate Control4 Technology throughout the entire interior of the home. Our main goal was to provide the future homeowners with the basics to get started with whole home automation, while also leaving room for upgrades and further integrations in the future. We incorporated Home Automation panels into every room providing audio, temperature management, and lighting control to meet everyone’s needs. We also installed sleek in-ceiling speakers throughout the home to seamlessly blend audio for both the interior and exterior of the home, all controlled from an AV rack located in the upstairs hall closet. Lastly, our team installed Legrand lighting and controls to round out the stunning interior of the home. Designed for Outdoor Living Outdoor living for most homeowners is a huge selling feature so we wanted to put our best foot forward when it came to using our best products here. From the moment you pull into the estate, outdoor cameras from Alarm.com are prevalent throughout the entire exterior of the home. Security was apparent as a top priority in the design of this home, so we included an Alarm.com smart doorbell system, as well as a whole home security system to provide the ultimate peace of mind. To tie the outdoor living area together, we installed a Sonance Landscaping Outdoor Sound System and wall-mounted loudspeakers on the deck to create the ultimate outdoor surround sound experience! To create a year-round space for the future homeowners we also included Phantom Outdoor Screens, which can be lowered and raised when not in use, as well as a Sunbrite Outdoor TV’s to make this home the ultimate entertainer’s paradise, no matter the weather. The End Result We’re so proud of our team and our partners and are honored to have been chosen as this year’s technology integrator. There were many trades and vendors who came together and contributed to this project, and we are honored to have been chosen by Josh Mauney with Paragon Building Group, who trusted our vision with this monumental project!
