Whole house Audio, Video, Network and WiFi installation in Val De Vie Estate.
We were contacted by our client ahead of his arrival in Cape Town and were tasked with ensuring that his new house is cabled correctly for audio throughout, television and most importantly WiFi as he works in Europe and needs to be contactable while in Cape Town.
Mirror Edge Networks employed our signature cabling installation, with cabling to all televisions points for DSTV, Sonos Soundbars, local Apple TV and data for each tv. This cabling is commonly referred to as “Rainbow Spaghetti” due to the colour co-ordinated cabling that we use.
Our installation featured our go-to network equipment. This comprises of:
Araknis AN110 router for remote management and support of the site. This enables us to see if the site is online and if there are any issues with the incoming internet connection
We have a single UniFi 16port POE network switch that is labelled in the control panel so that we can remotely view which devices are online.
WiFi is provided throughout the house via 3 x UniFi WiFi antennas.
We have installed 2 televisions in the house. The pajama lounge features a Samsung 70″ UHD television, mounted on a Vogels flush mount wall bracket and a Sonos ARC soundbar to enhance the television sound.
The main lounge features a Samsung 75″ QLED television on a Vogels pull and turn wall mount bracket (enabling the tv to be turned to the kitchen or to the braai area), and features a Sonos ARC soundbar to enhance the television sound. We strapped an Apple TV4k to the back of the television for added smart functionality. All HDMI cables for the televisions are HDAnywhere SlimWire Max cables.
To complete this installation we installed a pair of Sonos One SL speakers on Vogels wall mount brackets on the patio for the braai area. This provides sound for the outdoor area without having the headache of going into the house to switch on the outdoor audio. We strapped an Apple TV4k to the back of the television for added smart functionality. All HDMI cables for the televisions are HDAnywhere SlimWire Max cables.
Installation was completed prior to our client arriving in Cape Town. Cabling installation including terminations took 2 days.
Equipment installation including 2 x television installations and 2 x outdoor speaker installations took 2 days.
Overall, we are very happy with the outcome of this installation and so is our client.
