Hawthorn apartments, a luxury apartment complex in Somers, Wisconsin got in touch with Modern Media Tech in 2020 with an exciting prospect: design the audio, video, security, and automation systems for their new state-of-the-art 8,000 square foot clubhouse. Equipped with a swimming pool, weatherproof outdoor entertainment area, resident co-working space, demonstration kitchen, and more we had one goal in mind: intuitive ease of use. This is the final entry in our 4-part project feature series
Residents need to be able to operate each of Hawthorn's unique technology features with ease, while allowing staff central control of the entire clubhouse system. To meet those needs Modern Media Tech used RTI programming to create a dynamic multimedia solution.
RTI allows you to run your system simply. Instead of a different remote for audio, video, etc. RTI allows for just one. Using either touchscreens or keypads, residents can switch between streaming television, listening to their phone audio in the room, and adjusting the volume, and more.
RTI saves time and provides Hawthorn staff a user-friendly experience as well. Through a single interface staff can control and monitor the media in each room so they can provide the best experience to their clients as well. And with programmed configurations, all media systems automatically turn off at the end of the work day and start up with specifications the customer provided. For example, the kitchen television turns on to a cooking channel and audio plays at a specified level in the communal work area.
There are endless possibilities with RTI. Best of all, it’s centrally located. All RTI and audio equipment are located in a rack tucked away from view, giving the ultimate modular experience and security for peace of mind.
