A fully functioning smart home can feel like a magic show of seamless connections.
The difference is this smart home is actually owned by a celebrity magician who knows a thing or two about illusions and smart home integration.
Criss Angel’s 22,000-square-foot mountaintop smart home in Henderson, Nev. represents a lesson for builders and integrators in the luxury market looking to offer a connected LUX home.
The ‘Mindfreak’ magician’s home is a fully integrated smart home with lighting, climate, security and entertainment control, according to Examiner.com.

The first step when integrating the smart home with a range of connected technologies is choosing a powerful platform that can handle a larger than average sized home.
Crestron was chosen to connect Criss Angel’s home by Las Vegas integrators at Fusion Home Systems. The platform is popular in luxury homes where clients are looking for a modern and higher-end automation system.
Even on bigger upscale homes like this, builders and integrators have room to explore different options when it comes to whole-house control. Balancing client expectations and device connectivity may allow builders to integrate with a more applicable product.
