Stylish, modern bar offering cocktails afternoon tea, complete with multi-zone audio and digital signage.
We were contracted to design and install all services to this cocktail bar as a turnkey project, the brief was to create a modern lighting scheme, an audio system that would allow background music or live musicians, WiFi for both core systems and guests and security systems.
The client also requested digital signage displays to cross sell other companies and services.
A bespoke iPad interface for all the building’s systems was requested for the bar staff so they could control all equipment in a quick and simple manor from behind the bar:
These systems included; audio volume, playlist selection, control of all lighting, control of terrance heaters, control of signage displays and viewing of CCTV cameras for door staff.
We opted for Rako for the smart lighting control system, mainly due to the large quantity of RGBW LED strip which had to be controlled. The audio was delivered through a combination of ceiling speakers, wall speakers and outdoor speakers.
For the CCTV cameras we chose for Dahua as the integration of them allows embedding of the CCTV streams into 3rd party apps.
For the control system we used RTI’s system to build a bespoke user interface for the iPad from the ground up.
