Judges: “Every aspect of the project exhibits careful and considered design coupled with innovative applications of available technologies. Simple touches such as the colour coding of inputs and room areas make the system interfaces obvious and intuitive to use. Using the input-sensing on devices to trigger start-up and shut-down sequences reduce the need for skilled supervision of the spaces.”

Terry Coe, UWA: “The outcome of this project has just been amazing.  In terms of capability, this is a very complex space.  But thanks to the AMX Enova systems, it is elegant, easily maintainable and simple to operate.”
