The design goals for this house focused on, optimizing views of the lake, and maximizing living convenience.  For views, all of the most frequently used rooms were given lake views with oversized windows and doors added to provide each with an expansive view.  These views were further expanded with an open style kitchen, casual dining, and family room area.  The living conveniences are more subtle but very extensive and include: one floor living with laundry and master suite on main level, panty and kitchen located near garage for easy grocery unloading, lighting automation that adjusts to your living patterns, turn out in driveway to avoid having to back out on road, heated floors in kitchen, hallway, and master bath, far end circulator for kitchen faucet provides near instant hot water, dual dishwashers for “clean to dirty” flow, fully automatic backup power generator, remote controlled Sunsetter awning over deck, breakfast bar in kitchen, 2nd stairway directly to garage from lower level, Garage door auto close if left open,  2nd fridge in pantry, remote controlled fireplace, automatic heat to cool switching HVAC system, etc.

The lawn, and sculptured flower beds, are watered by an in ground 9-zone sprinkler system fed via a well.  The well 10 GPM pump is a multi-impeller submersed pump controlled by a constant 45 psi pressure valve.  The pump is hung 75ft below the top of the 120 ft. deep well. 

The oversized paved driveway provides parking for 8 autos and includes a turnout to allow backing out of the garage and then turning to drive out headfirst onto the street.   The lawn areas on both the street side, and lake-front, are flat with sloping side areas connecting the front and back lawns.   A 5.5 - 6 ft. high stone wall runs along the waterfront and has a wide sloping shrub bed along the top of the wall.  Two sets of stairs provide easy access to water’s edge.  The wall is set back approximately 6-8 ft. from the water’s edge. 

Shrub and flower mulch beds run around the perimeter of the lot and also around the perimeter of the house.

The open style interior includes 4600 sq. ft with over 3830 sq ft of finished living area providing 11 large rooms and 5 bathrooms, laundry, pantry, walk in master closet, plus 2 unfinished areas for the workshop, and utility room.  The house design places the most frequently used rooms facing the lake and each provides an expansive view of the lake. 

The main level features 9 ft high ceilings and includes an open living layout for the Kitchen, Casual Dining Area, and Family Room.  All provide expansive views of the lake.

The kitchen is supported by a walk in pantry located next to the kitchen with pantry access directly across from the door to the garage for convenient access with groceries.  The less used rooms including, the formal dining room, foyer, powder room Bath 3, foyer closet, stairways to the upper and lower levels, and laundry area, are positioned along the street side of the house.   The south end of the main level also includes the master suite which includes a large bedroom, 5 piece master bath, spacious walk in master closet, and large linen closet.  The master bedroom features a 9 ft. window for lake viewing from your pillow.  The walk in master closet also features a built in fire resistant safe for valuables.

General Construction Details

The house is constructed with many energy efficient features.  Because the house was constructed on the lake shore, design decisions reduce heat loss from winds off the lake.  These include:

·         Anderson 400 Series Casement thermo-pane Low-E windows designed with double sealing to seal tighter when wind loading is applied to their exterior surfaces.

·         Window units were sealed with two applications of insulating foam between window frame and rough opening to eliminate air leaks before interior wall were installed

·         Sealed Fireplace unit uses dual liner piping to draw fresh air in from outside though and outer pipe and exhaust flue gases out through an inner pipe.

·         Kitchen cooktop unit uses charcoal filtered inside venting, integral to the microwave oven, to eliminate air loss from outside venting.

·         Furnace boiler implemented with direct exhaust venting system to eliminate heat loss drafting that would occur with a chimney.

·         All exterior walls are constructed of 2” x 6” framing to increase strength and accommodate the more efficient R-21 insulation.

·         Outer walls are covered with moisture barrier which keeps out moisture but allows house to breath.

·         Plastic sheeting installed behind wall board on all exterior walls and all ceilings to reduce air leakage and provide additional moisture barrier.

·         R-38 insulation in attic and above lower level ceilings.

·         2” insulated garage doors with weather seals

·         Insulated interior walls bordering the garage

·         Moisture barrier plastic sheeting laid under lower level concrete subfloor to reduce energy loss and moisture transfer

·         Thermostatic fan driven heat exchanger installed on furnace flue to reclaim heat from oil burner exhaust

Electronics Description

This section describes this electronics support implemented in this house. 

It is planned that all of the devices and functionality discussed in this document will stay with the house when it is sold.

While one can go crazy with electronics in houses these days, electronics was only added if it either increased Safety & Security, or improved Ease of Living for the occupants of the house.  These two criteria run the gambit from: safety, security, lighting support, and monitoring to warn when attention is needed. 

The focus of the automation installed in this house was to not only meet the two goals mentioned above, but to do so as automatically as possible and adjust to fit how the occupants live.  Should there be the need to either change one or more actions, or add additional capabilities.  The system, while requiring startup learning, is in fact fairly easy to modify to add, change, delete, or have one of the capabilities work differently for anyone who has computer skills.

The best ways to understand the installation is to break it down into its main components.  Each piece of functionality will be discussed in the following separate sections of this document.


1.       Wiring

2.       Phone support

3.       TV support

4.       LAN Network support including high performance WiFi.

5.       Security, Fire, and CO, alarm support

6.       Lighting and other device automation

7.       Other Electronic Support

Section 1 – Wiring

During house construction, wires were run from each room location to the central infrastructure wiring panel located in the utility room on the lower level.  All wires are “home run” meaning they run from their planned room locations directly to the infrastructure wiring panel.  Except for the RG6 TV cable, all wire runs used Cat 5e network cable.  The general room locations of each type of run is as follows:

TV – RG6 Coax runs to each bedroom wall mount TV location.  AC receptacles were also placed at these wall locations.  In the family room, an additional run goes to the media center.  The two kitchens also have TV jacks above the counters.

Telephone – Each bedroom is wired with two phone jacks and will support two telephone lines in the house using Cat 5e wiring. 

LAN – Two LAN jacks are located in each bedroom.  One is located behind TV wall mount locations and the other is placed for a desk based computer connection.  There are 3 LAN jacks in the family room.  There are also jacks in the 2 kitchens, family room, and rec room.  In addition the router provides G, N, and AC WiFi connections.

Security – Each window that is less than 10ft off the ground, and each door, have cable runs connected to security sensors.  There are also wire runs to room wall locations for glass break detectors in all first floor rooms and lower rec room windows.  Wire runs also go to locations in foyer, hallway, family room, and lower rec room, for security motion detectors.  In addition, there are runs to: garage doors, garage door status and control panels, heating oil tank, fuel level display in rear hallway, generator, the security system, and outdoor weather station, for sensors connections.

The wiring panel is powered by a single 60 watt supply providing 12v/5a and also contains a voltage converter module to produce 5v where needed.  It plugs into a GFI receptacle mounted in the bottom of the panel.  This GFI receptacle connects to a 600va backup power unit which is used to continue to power the panel for the 20 seconds it takes for the whole house generator to start up and transfer the house load to it from the utility company.

Section 2 – Phone Support

Currently, the telephone service is by Charter Communications and comes in on the same cable as the TV and Internet.  A feed from the TV cable is split off and runs to a voice router mounted to the right of the wiring panel which separates out the telephone channel and feeds it to the telephone blocks in the panel which connects to all the phone lines.  The security system also connects to the telephone network for dialing the security monitoring service.

Section 3 –TV support

TV service is currently provided by Charter Communications and runs from the pole on the street at the south end of the property, through an underground conduit and enters the house at the southeast corner.  The cable runs to the wiring panel where it feeds the in house system.  Feeds are split off and run to the voice router for voice services, to the cable modem for internet services, and connects to a 16 port video distribution amp to feeds amplified TV signals out to all the room jack locations.

Section 4 – LAN Network Support

Internet services are currently provided by Charter Communications from a cable feed to the cable modem in the panel.  The cable modem feeds a LAN signal to the Router.  The router in turn connects with all the devices connected to the network throughout the house.  The 4 Router ports are increased to 20 ports with the addition of the 16 port Ethernet switch feed the network to all the LAN jacks through the house.  The router also provides WiFi support for G, N, and AC Wi-Fi bands for any wireless network connections.  Because of the Wi-Fi signals, the router is mounted above the wiring panel.  The router and switches support broadband 1000based T bandwidth. 

Section 5 – Security, Fire, & CO System Support

Home security is provided using and ELK Products M1Gold model security and automation controller.  This controller provides controller support for: smoke and fire alarms, CO detector near furnace, home security monitoring, and home automation controls.  This section will discuss only the security and fire support.

The base ELK M1 Gold (M1G) controller contains 16 input zones plus the two 16 zone expansion cards provide 48 zones.  All house windows less than 10ft off the ground, each exterior door, each wired motion detector, all glass break detectors, plus a variety of other devices are each connected to a zone input.  Input zones are named and configured to define what they.  Zones appropriate to security are assigned as security zones.   The security system can be armed in STAY mode which will trigger if one of the parameter sensors is tripped but ignore the interior motion detectors to allow the alarm to be set when you are home.   AWAY adds the interior motion detectors to the security profile.

There are 3 Smoke and fire zones, one for each floor.  When one detector is tripped, the ELK causes all detectors to alarm as required by code.  The Smoke, Burglar, and CO alarms are reset by entering the user code programmed into the ELK.  A voice card that contains pre-stored loud voice messages for FIRE, BURGLARY, and CARBON MONOXIDE loudly announce the appropriate warning.  This voice card feeds a speaker mounted next to the system speaker in the hallway near the foyer.  A second speaker announces a voice mode which in addition to announcing alarm triggers, announces the specific door or window opening whenever a zone is opened.    The two garage doors and the shed door are identified with specific close messages in addition to the specific open messages.  The garage doors and garage windows are also wired for security arming.  The system supports all the common security monitoring service protocols and also supports internet based monitor services connections that use the DSC format. 

The M1Gold controller is housed in its own smaller panel and is mounted to the back of the large wiring panel.  The small panel houses the M1G controller, an 8 output relay card, the ELK network interface card, and the battery for the battery backup to keep the security system operating when power fails.  The ELK zone expansion cards are located in the large wiring panel to provide space for most of the zone input wires to connect to the system.

There are two key pads with and LED two line displays, function keys, and number pads located next to the door leading to the garage, and the other is in the master bedroom.  The system can be armed and disarmed from either of these pads and also from a remotely located Smartphone or PC with the “M1-to-Go” app installed.  In addition the free ELKRP app runs on a PC to provide complete setup and control of the M1G.

Section 6 – Home Automation

Please note that only automation which either improves safety and security, or improves the ease of living in the home was considered.  If it did not meet one of these criteria, it was not considered for implementation.  Likewise, the goal of all automation was just be there and work automatically adjusting itself to the way you live in the home and not make you a slave to the automation.  To accomplish, it uses occupancy detectors, references to the sunrise/sunset tables, etc. to automatically adjust as the seasons change.

To better understand home automation, more discussion of the ELK controller and an industry recognized home automation capability called INSTEON is needed. 

The ELK is not just a security and fire controller as discussed in prior section.  It also includes the ability to support home automation programming.  If you are not familiar with what exactly home automation is, it will become clearer as you read this section.  The ELK contains the ability to “write” 500 program statements.  These simple to create statements allows the user to specify the actions you want the ELK to take when a certain input or combination of input conditions are present.  Each program statement uses a WHENEVER, AND, THEN format.  A program statement is generated by clicking on the WHENEVER button which causes a drop down menu with the possible choices to occur.  You select a choice and click on OK.  You can add AND conditions followed by the THEN action(s) you want to have happen.  An example from this system includes: WHENEVER it is 30 minutes before sunset, THEN turn on the family room lamp.  Another example would be: WHENEVER kitchen motion is detected, AND the kitchen dusk-dawn sensor is on, THEN turn on the kitchen light.  The use of INSTEON is the second key element associated with a home automation system. 

While not all the automation support implemented uses INSTEON signaling, the use of INSTEON automation signaling greatly adds to the capabilities that can be controlled by automation.  It provides a way to connect devices that are not direct wired back to the wiring panel.  INSTEON is a dual signaling technology which both sends signals sent over the house AC wiring and also via wireless links.  The INSTEON devices each have an address so each can be identified to send commands to or receive inputs from.  INSTEON supported devices come in many forms including: plug in appliance modules, light bulbs with built-in Insteon circuitry, wireless motion detectors, wireless door and window sensors, water leak detectors, light switches, thermostats, etc.  Up to 256 different Insteon devices can be configured into an INSTEON network.  This network using about 25 Insteon devices including wireless motion detectors, light bulbs, wall switches that replace regular switches, and appliance modules. 

A Universal Devices model ISY-994i controller is used to interface to the Insteon modem on one side and convert the Insteon protocol to ELK supported format on the other side.  The ELK and ISY are both connected directly to the LAN and talk to each other over the LAN.  As examples:  When an Insteon motion detector senses motion, it sends a wireless Insteon signal to the Insteon network which is received by the ISY-994i.  The ISY converts the Insteon message to ELK compatible format and sends it across the LAN to the ELK.  The ELK uses them to trigger program actions just like zone triggers do.  Thus the Insteon network adds many other input and outputs that the ELK can control using it’s WHENEVER, AND, THEN, programming capability.  The following is a list of the home automation actions programmed into this system.

1.       Use motion detectors to trigger turning kitchen light, hallway lights, garage lights, master bedroom lamp, lower stairway lamp, and turns off 2-3 minutes after the last motion is detected in those areas.  The master bedroom motion detector is set to only trigger when a person stands up in the bedroom such as getting up to go to the bathroom.  It controls a 15% brightness Insteon bulb as a night light.  It turns off 45 seconds after being triggered.

2.       Turn on evening lights including family room lamp, dining room lamp, lower stairway lamp, rear hallway light, master bath, master bedroom lamp, and lighthouse.  Rear hallway lights, and master bedroom lamp, turn off if motion detector is triggered and times out.  All other lights except the master bath light are turned off at 10pm.  Master bath light stays on until 30 minutes after sunrise to serve as a night light in the bathroom.

3.       Turn on family room lamp and dining room lamp on at 5:45am, if still dark.  These are turned off 30 minutes after sunrise.

4.       Send emails for a variety of conditions including:

a.       House doors opened or closed

b.      Garage doors opened or closed

c.       Carbon Monoxide Detected

d.      Generator start/stop

e.      Generator failed to start

f.        Generator fault condition

g.       Low temp in house indicating heat is off

h.      Low temp in outdoor weather station sensor pod indicating rain cone heater not working

i.         Water shut off because a leak was detected

j.        Low oil level in heating oil tank

k.       Low battery in a specific motion detector (these emails sent by ISY)

5.       Turns off water when a leak is detected or by command from smart phone

6.       Garage doors and shed doors are automatically closed if open 10 minutes

7.       Turns on garage light and rear hallway lights for 3 minutes whenever a house door to the garage is opened.

8.       Automatically lock doors from house to garage at 7:30pm.  Locks are keypad, key, remote, or Insteon controlled.

9.       Remote control of security and automation controller – Apps are available for PCs and Smart phones (M1toGo) that allow the ELK to be accessed remotely using a PC or Smart phone.  This capability allows status to be monitored and outputs can be controlled to turn lights, water, etc., on or off remotely.

10.   A free PC app named ELKRP (Elk Remote Programming) provides ability to configure all setup parameters for the ELK LAN interface and the ELK controller including defining zones types, writing or editing Whenever, And, Then program statements, etc.

Section 7 – Other Electronic Support

There are a few devices that that provide capabilities that are not connected into the security and automation system.  These include:

1.       Internet connected Davis Vantage Pro II weather station – An outdoor pod of sensors located near the boat house include: temperature, rain, wind speed, wind direction, and humidity.   The sensor pod contains a photo cell that charges a super capacitor to store power.  A lithium ion battery supplies backup power when there is a lack of enough sun.  An indoor console located on the kitchen counter features a 7 inch display of weather readings that is network connected.  The system feeds a website maintained by the manufacturer (Davis), which is available to anyone with the URL link in a browser.

2.       Mail arrival module.  This device includes a wireless sensor fastened to the inside surface of the mail box door and when the door is opened, a tilt sensor triggers it to send a notification signal to an indoor unit with both audio and red light alert that the mail has arrived.  This saves a lot of trips to check on the mail.

3.       Garage door status panels.  There are three overhead door status panels which contain a red LED for each of the two main garage doors and the detached garage door that light when the doors are open.  The panels are located in the hallway next to the door leading to the garage, in the kitchen, and in the master bedroom.

4.       Boat house door status. –A tilt sensor mounted to the boathouse overhead door sends a signal to a sensor on the kitchen counter to indicate the state of the door.

5.       Wireless Remote panel on generator. – The Generac 14kw whole house automatic generator in this installation is equipped with a wireless remote monitoring and control panel which displays the status of the generator, allows for some setup changes, and allows some remote control such as test starting the generator, test transferring load, etc.

6.       Motion controller driveway lighting.  A dual light unit with a built in motion detector and an evening night light mounted over the garage doors provide flood lighting of the driveway when triggered.  It automatically returns to night light mode 4 minutes after it last senses motion.

7.       Motion enable lights on the lake side of the house by both lower level doors.

8.       Motion enable spot light mounted on rear of the house focused on the stairway leading up from the boat house to provide lighting when returning from boating.
