Integrated Boat Dock

This dock project was a separate phase of a larger outdoor project that can be found in the portfolio labeled "Picturesque Outdoor Oasis." Essentially this portion begins where that project ends, at the path to the boat dock you see here.

What the customer wanted was to extend the capabilities of the house and pool area out to the dock to be able to have security, audio, and network, just like the rest of the property.

To enhance the dock's security, we added cameras and a recorder to capture all angles of the dock. We used cameras with built-in heaters to make them more reliable in harsh weather conditions. The homeowners are able to view the camera feeds for all four cameras from their Control4 mobile apps, or from the touchscreens inside the home.

To bring the network capabilities out to the dock, we installed a network switch with fiber to ethernet conversion to connect the dock to the existing home network. We then placed an outdoor-rated wireless access point inside the dock's utility closet to provide Wi-Fi. The customer's mobile devices connect to the dock's Wi-Fi when they are down at the dock.

To bring audio to the dock, we placed two 8" all-weather in-ceiling speakers over the seating area, and we installed a Control4 streaming music amplifier to provide streaming music to the dock. The homeowner can use the mobile app to select and playback music configured to the existing Control4 system.

Finally, an IP power conditioner was installed to allow for remote rebooting of the dock equipment, if needed.
