New BlueSpeed Office Gains International Attention for Technology Design
Lutron Award Reflects on BlueSpeed as a Leading Integration Business
BlueSpeed AV opened its doors to a stunning new office in The Galley building and is already attracting international acclaim for its design from the Lutron Excellence Awards; an award competition that recognizes the world’s best projects using lighting, shading, automation control and more.
In receiving the award, BlueSpeed was honored at the national CEDIA conference in San Diego for Best Showrooms inside The Galley building - a reflection of their premier status as a leading technology integrator for business and residential spaces.
The BlueSpeed team oversaw the technology plan across the entire Galley building. Apart from BlueSpeed, the office houses three other innovative companies specializing in kitchen design, investments, and software. The building’s vast environmental components are all connected by a streamlined integration of lighting, shades, media, security and automation control - a design that was three years in the making.
Simple Control of the Entire Building
Savant Automation works hand-in-hand with Lutron and Alexa Voice Control products to manage the whole building. Occupants can use Lutron keypads throughout the building to control TVs, music, volume, temperature, and media. Savant pushes control of all the systems into the keypads, making it the primary portal to enjoy the space. For example, when you enter the building’s auto showroom, you can select multiple scenes from one keypad or use your phone to make changes:
- “Event” - The projector comes down, TVs start, pump station and candy shoppe wake up, temperature adjusts, and lights and music go to the exact levels for an event atmosphere.
- “Presentation” - With one push, it manipulates 30 light switches to illuminate the car features.
- “Away” - Turns off all lights, except those for security, and shuts down AV elements.
Performance Lights & Shades
Lutron’s Homeworks QS handles the building’s 150+ light loads, and the elegant finish of the 35 Palladiom keypads match the building’s stylish decor. The building runs on LED lights, whether it’s the eye-catching chandelier at the entrance or the assortment of bubble, recessed, rope, tape, accent, or can light features. Shades on the first floor retract beautifully behind a fabric-wrapped trim at the top of the windows. While upstairs you’ll see a sleek pocket in the wall to accommodate the shades when raised.
Visitors can test their swing in the state-of-the-art golf room where, with a push of a button, the shades and lighting tune to prime levels for game focus. Play real world-class courses while getting your swing analyzed for optimal performance, and even play a round of blackjack for fun. Enjoy this multipurpose room to watch a movie, listen to great music, or play alongside your favorite golf pro with picture-in-picture viewing.
Scalable Landscape Lighting
Unique outdoor lighting not only enhances security for the building, but it highlights the beauty of the architecture as well. As the sun goes down lights illuminate to keep pathways safe for staff leaving. All of the fixtures are high-grade and designed to compliment the landscape, withstand harsh environmental elements, and save on energy bills. Better yet, the entire outdoor lighting system is scalable; which allows it to be expanded as needed.
There are a series of security triggers that fire if safety issues occur. If there is an alarm, every interior light goes to full bright and the exterior lights flash. In the event of a fire, all lights go dim so you can see through smoke more easily and the HVAC turns off so not to filter smoke through the system. The outdoor lights continuously flash, alerting incoming emergency response services. The building is equipped with over 60 cameras available from any TV or mobile device; giving staff peace-of-mind whether onsite or away.
