The Nikau Renovations was a major renovation project and pretty close to a new build.
CBUS home automation system which controls the entire house, Including Underfloor heating, Airconditioning, Escea Fire, Motorised Blinds, Water Feature, Irrigation, Garage doors, Access Control, Gate Lock,
There are substantial sensors around the house with unlimited programmable options. Lights come on 30 Minutes before sunset in the evenings, When its bedtime 1 press of your phone or switch beside the bed locks the gate, front door, Turns the outside lights off, Shuts the blinds turns Heating off and the master bedroom lights dim over a minute. Safe and secure and no need to check doors are locked.
The weekday routine when someone walks into the ensuite between the preset time of 7am - 7:20am the bathroom fan comes on, The lights ramp up over a few minutes and 30 Minutes later the blinds open. The remainder of the lights come on.
Then once the garage sensor is triggered after 8am the house is automatically set to a lockdown mode. Lights off doors locked.
A cbus system is fully customisable and you are only limited by your imagination as to whats possible. With the addition of the Apple homekit its possible for your phone to automatically unlock your front door and gate when your phone is within a few meters of the gate. Or just ask Siri to unlock the gate.
With the Iphone control its possible to unlock and control your house from anywhere. Great when you get an unexpected courier package.

Side strip LED lighting
Led strip lighting that highlights the feature tile in the guest toilet
Under cupboard strip light provide great working light in the laundry area, this is complimented with matching recessed downlights to provide general lighting to the room
Walk in wardrobe
We have incorporated the led strip into the clothes rail eliminating dark patches on the clothes
Bathroom Mirror lighting
The LED strip lighting is recessed seamlessly into the feature timber panel giving a uniform light for makeup and shaving.
Shower Recessed Box
We lit this recessed tile shampoo shelf with an LED light, The LED strip provides enough light for the shower area keeping the ceiling in the shower clear from needing any further lighting.
Backlit Mirror Light
Another example of a backlit feature mirror.
Pendant Feature Light
This light fitting we custom made with 3 different lamps. This is a simple but stunning feature which compliments the timber panelling.
Scullery Strip Lighting
We provided under cupboard recessed LED lights and another set of LED strip on top of the open shelves that provides general reflected light off the ceiling. This is a great way to light the room as it avoid glare.
Ensuite Strip LED lighting
Another example of recessed LED strip lighting to enhance the tile feature wall.
Walk in wardrobe
We have used reflected light in the wardrobe, This keeps the ceiling clean and free from any lights, It also avoids any glare. The clothe rails are also lit up with an led strip built into the rail
Outside Step Lighting
Each step is lit with a recessed low wattage LED fitting. This provides a very clear and inviting path to the front door
Scullery under cupboard
Recessed lighting under the cupboards. Great working light with no shadows when working over the bench. There is a skylight in here and with the CBUS system we have set this up so the lights only come on when the skylight does not provide enough natural daylight.
Kitchen Island Feature
We custom designed the range hood with hidden coloured LED lights. The range hood lighting can be changed to any colour or just plain warm white as shown in the picture. We can also programme this to cycle through any number of colours, For a christmas party we set this to cycle green and red ramping up to full brightness in each colour. These LEDs are hidden behind the laser cut exterior panel avoiding glare and providing a even flood of light.
