A Symphony of Luxury and Smart Technology

Milind Bargal Interior Designers have designed a home with a unified control system by partnering with Eagle Techsec and Communications India Pvt. Ltd., which has resulted in a home characterised by reliability, flexibility, and comfort. 

Renowned Architect and Interior Designer, Milind Bargal has designed an opulent residence for the Kakwani family that is a blend of sumptuous design with cutting-edge technology. This home is located in Vijay Nagar in Indore and is spread over an area of 16,000 sq ft.  The client’s brief to the Milind Bargal Interior Designers was to have a unified control system for the entire home, ensuring ease of operation without complexity. Milind Bargal Interior Designers collaborated with Eagle Techsec and Communications India Pvt. Ltd. to successfully integrate lighting, shades, audio-visual equipment, security surveillance, and HVAC under a single, easily accessible platform. The design prioritized minimalistic and user-friendly lighting and shade keypads, particularly for the client’s parents. Reliability was a key factor in system selection.

Integration of Smart Home Technologies

The designer opted for a wired system for lighting and AV controls, keeping in mind the reliability size of the home. Lutron handled lighting and shades, SAVANT integrated audio-visual controls and security features, while Coolmaster managed HVAC. A dedicated smart device application provided centralised control, complemented by Lutron keypads strategically placed for effortless operation.

“Understanding the importance of simplicity, the lighting and shades’ keypads were customized to the client’s preferences, and engraved by Lutron for easy identification. SAVANT application UI was tailored uniquely for each family member, ensuring a personalised and user-friendly experience.” explains Milind Bargal.

Not compromising on the security aspect, the interior design team opted for Honeywell surveillance cameras that cover the entire property, incorporating varifocal cameras for optimal visibility at the main gate. EEKEY access controls managed servant entries with customizable schedules. Intrusion alarms by AJAX and Texecom fortified vulnerable entry points, integrated with lighting controls for enhanced security. Lutron’s vacation mode provided an added layer of safety, simulating occupancy during the client’s absence. The integration of a firewall into the house networking system ensured the constant safety of data and privacy, even from potential interference by household staff.

Entertainment Space 

The entertainment area has been equipped with the client’s desire for an immersive entertainment experience. Configured as a 5.1.2 surround sound system with ATMOS, it has Martin Logan speakers, an Epson projector, and an Onkyo audio-video receiver. The emphasis on easy operation extended to a user-friendly lighting and shades keypad in each area, along with a personalized SAVANT UI for managing other services.

One of the most important aspects of this project is the lighting. The designer opted for Lutron, an industry-leading brand known for its reliability and flexibility was chosen for lighting and shade controls throughout the house. The decision was rooted in the brand’s reputation for inventing dimming and controls.

Keeping the scope of future expansion, Eagle Techsec and Communications ensured the system’s scalability by implementing an IP platform. This choice allows for the seamless integration of future technologies and accommodates evolving homeowner needs without the constraints of an analog system.

Overall, Milind Bargal Interior Designers has transcended conventional luxury with this smart home project, seamlessly weaving together aesthetics and technology.
