Imperial Doncaster apartments feature Sonos audio as standard

A new apartment development in Melbourne's eastern suburbs features an integrated audio and partial home automation system.

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.

The Sonos equipment comprises the new Sonos Playbar for use with the TV, and a Sonos Play:3 that can be positioned anywhere in the apartment and used independently of the Playbar.

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.

“It’s the first time Push Controls has integrated their technology into every apartment in a project as standard, as is the case for Sonos and Spotify," said AXF Property sales and marketing manager Scott Jessop.

"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.
