The China-based AXF Group has constructed a 96 apartment block in Doncaster, one of Melbourne's eastern suburbs. Apart from the way it towers over nearby homes, one of the things that makes it stand out is a high standard of fittings including a Sonos audio system plus remote control of lighting and certain power points.
Controlled from an iPad mini that comes with the apartment (or the new occupants' own smartphones, tablets or computers), the Sonos system can play the contents of an iTunes library or be used with a streaming music service. Residents will receive a free one year subscription to Spotify.
Via a Push Controls system, the iPad is capable of controlling other entertainment equipment in the apartment, along with lighting and selected power points.
"I’m really excited about it as it’s been a personal project of mine for a number of years and to finally find the right technology and have the big brands on board is amazing."
Imperial Doncaster apartments go on sale this month.
