Security cameras cover the entire perimeter of the home, and their pictures are easily viewed from anywhere in the world through an iPad app. An access-controlled gate allows the client to manage entry to the home even when away.

We also staged multiple variations of light fixtures and bulbs to find the optimal combination to meet the client’s taste. Photography: Bruce Van Inwegen Outdoor - akash_mitra43
