Luxury Apartment Property Installs Control4 to Deliver Best-in-Class Connected Living

Control4® system enables customized automation technology within Aloha Hill Club residences located in Marbella's "Golf Valley"

Salt Lake City, UT - October 17, 2012 - Control4, a leading innovator in residential and light commercial automation systems, has completed installation of Control4® automation technology in the prominent Aloha Hill Club luxury apartments, located in the heart of Nueva Andalucía's "Golf Valley," just behind the world famous Puerto Banus of Marbella, Spain.


"It was very important for us to offer potential clients the latest in luxury living," said Morten Sorensen, Director of Aloha Hill Club."We chose companies with different specialties to ensure our overall package was unrivaled in Marbella. I was won over by Control4 when I saw how capable the system is, allowing simple control using both an all-in-one control unit as well as popular devices like iPads that people use on a daily basis."

Control4 certified dealer, Jason Wild of Future Lifestyle, worked closely with the Aloha Hill Club to prove that all it takes is a single interaction with the technology to recognize the significant benefits of offering a "smart," connected living space - and also one that can be uniquely tailored to the individual owner. Allowing for complete client customization, Future Lifestyle provides three video and two multi-room audio options. Whether prospective residents are looking for high-definition 3D and satellite or a more personalized, theater-quality, cinema experience, the specially designed audio and video solutions feature the best in home entertainment. Each turnkey package includes a Control4 HC-200 controller and handheld remote, which are upgradable should advanced control options be requested.To further enhance the connected living space, Future Lifestyle offers additional integration extras such as A/V memory storage, standalone audio solutions, Control4 iPod dock integration, and full lighting control solutions, all which can be intuitively controlled from a smart phone or tablet.

Seeing is believing when it comes to highlighting the benefits of home control to prospective owners. A fully integrated show flat allows potential residents to explore automation possibilities, giving them the chance to touch and experience the technology first hand.

Entering through the lounge, clients are greeted by a state-of-the art sound system and flat screen TV producing the best in HD video and audio content. As motion sensors detect a presence, the system instinctively turns on the lights at a set level dependent on the time of day. From there the automation awakens, revealing the Control4 on-screen interface which allows visitors to experiment with their control options. Whether it's whipping through the impressive media library to select a movie or playlist in seconds or adjusting the lights throughout the hallway, kitchen and dining room, clients are given the opportunity to feel what it's like to have instantaneous control at their fingertips.

Specially cued music, which can be preset to a variety of "modes," streams from the media server in both the lounge and main bedroom, ensuring the ambiance throughout the entire space is just right. The system can be upgraded so additional zones can be added to the TV network or the audio system and installed anywhere in the apartment including all weather speakers for outdoor entertaining plus other stylish speaker options with built in iPod and iPhone docking to complete the home entertainment system.

As potential residents make their way through the flat, the sales representatives have to do very little to highlight the system and capabilities of Control4, as simple, customized automation preferences are controlled easily with the swipe of a finger via the on-screen interface or mobile device.

"We have been impressed with how easy the technology has been to grasp, and clients have been impressed with the audio/video and lighting control installations which we now know add genuine appeal and are a valuable addition to our property," added Sorensen.

"We're thrilled that we can provide homeowners an avenue to enjoy more levels of control within their homes," said Control4 Senior Vice President of Sales, Jim Arnold. "This project is another great example of how Control4 teams up with creative dealers like Future Lifestyle and savvy businesses like Aloha Hill Club to deliver an innovative control solution that provides a great end-user experience and epitomizes high-end luxury living."

The Aloha Hill Club's 140 luxury apartments are nestled over nine blocks of beautifully landscaped sub-tropical gardens within the heart of the Nueva Andalucía "Golf Valley." Since the installation, early property viewings have been well received by both potential clients and sales people alike.

Initial sales began in May 2012 and new properties are currently on the market; further details on the development are available at www.alohahillclubmarbella.com/en
