A century old historic home in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Tampa, Fla. is renovated and restored using the latest in smart home technology.

Andrej Petrov and Jeff Greenacre, president of Dronik Construction, president of Greenacre Properties, respectively, oversaw the makeover of a house that was just about on its deathbed at the turn of the new millennium.

“It was in really bad shape,” says Petrov.

The property entered the 21st century with technology that includes a Control4 automation system, LED lighting, smart thermostats, a wired security system, 4K televisions and built in ceiling and wall speakers throughout the house.

Petrov and Greenacre also utilized a unique and patented cork coating solution called SUBER, making it the first residential home ever in the United States to feature this technology. The material can be used on any type of surface to make it waterproof, insect repellent and, coolest of all, soundproof.

“When you step into the home, you notice right away how quiet it is,” says Greenacre.
