Sophisticated elegance in the heart of Chile
Owned by a successful businessman and occupying over half of the 1.2 acre property, this magnificent chateau sits high on a hilltop in the exclusive Vitacura district of Santiago de Chile.
His hobby? Playing and listening to music. He didnâ€™t want to know a thing about technology; simplicity was what he was seeking. The simplicity he had known in his small flat in Las Vegas where he welcomed his guests and provided the music and lighting himself.
Techome, Vantage dealer in Santiago, convinced him that Vantage makes everything just that simple. â€œWe smiled and promised him that his most challenging task would be to pour himself a glass of whisky â€¦.â€
To make it easy to operate the lighting, all the functions are grouped together on the same area of the keypad. Shared buttons are provided for the various scenes: â€œdaytimeâ€, â€œguestsâ€, â€œnightâ€ and â€œoffâ€.
What if the owner is receiving guests? In a few seconds, the chateau is ready.
Just a few buttons are enough to create the perfect atmosphere. Alluring lighting highlights the works of art, furnishings, architecture and the chateau itself. Curtains are also opened and the thermostats in the guest area are set at 23Â° C.
All thatâ€™s left to do is choose a selection of music via the touchscreen in the living room and music starts playingâ€¦
At the end of the evening or festivities, itâ€™s also easy to shut off all lights, music and air conditioning in one go.

Vantage operates everything in the rest of the chateau too, for instance in the master bedroom and childrenâ€™s bedrooms: lighting, 15 air conditioning zones, 8 audio zones and 6 sub-zones. Everything is under control via keypads and touchscreens.
Naturally there is a home cinema as well. With the press of a single button, you select your favourite film and then just sit back and enjoyâ€¦
