Luxury Smart Home Project Spotlight: Crosslake Home


Explore the awe-inspiring final results of ResTech’s latest custom home project

At ResTech Systems, our passion is building comfortable, convenient, and sophisticated smart homes for clients stretching from Crosslake to Wayzata, MN and surrounding areas. Nothing excites us more than taking a client’s luxury smart home vision and transforming it into reality. We recently completed a major custom project for a family lake house in the picturesque lakeside city of Crosslake, MN. 

Our work for the Crosslake Home included home automation with Savant, home entertainment, security and surveillance, enterprise-grade networking, whole home lighting and shading, outdoor audio, and more. We invite you to keep reading this blog to explore the awe-inspiring final results of our efforts.

Savant Home Control


Savant home automation is the brain powering this gorgeous luxury home. At ResTech Systems, we love Savant due to its ease of use and streamlined, elegant interface design. Our clients now have multiple ways to manage and adjust their home technologies. We installed wall-mounted touchscreens for the family to easily view and control AV, lighting, shading, security, surveillance, and entry access. Additionally, we mounted several on-wall keypads for one-touch access to lighting settings and favorite scenes around the house. And finally, anyone in the family can access the Savant home from the Pro App on their smartphones. 

Enterprise-Grade Networking

Our clients entertain frequently and often have extended family over to spend time at the lake house. We installed an enterprise-grade network using Luxul components and Ruckus Wi-Fi technology to support numerous smartphones, entertainment systems, and connected devices that will be active when large groups of people are over. An enterprise-grade solution has the bandwidth, memory, traffic prioritization, and processing power to ensure that everyone has robust wireless coverage no matter where they are in the house.

Lighting and Shading


We want our clients to feel comfortable at home with dimmable lighting, automated window treatments, and indoor temperature control. Our team installed QMotion motorized shades to keep the sun’s heat and glare out, protect interior furnishings and décor, and allow the family their privacy. We also installed Vantage lighting control with low-brightness dimming capabilities so that the family can adjust indoor lighting to a comfortable level for every occasion. 

Halfway through the project, our clients decided they wanted motorized shades on the back porch too. The problem? We hadn’t wired for them because the client hadn’t brought it up during the planning phase. Our elegant solution was to install SI exterior motorized shades powered by a long-lasting lithium battery. Now the family can enjoy time on the patio with protective shades for privacy and sun protection. 

Home Entertainment


Our clients entertain A LOT. Their teenage children often have friends over, and the family frequently invites extended family members to spend time at the lake house. Therefore, they needed multiple entertainment options to satisfy guests of all ages. 

First up, we designed a dedicated home theater with a Sony projector, Stewart projection screen, Paradigm speakers, JL Audio subwoofers, and color-changing DMX lighting for an immersive movie-watching experience. Next, we installed a Full Swing golf simulator that’s sure to provide hours of entertainment. Finally, we installed a landscape audio system with Ambisonic speakers to bring high-performance sound to outdoor parties, pool days, and barbecues. 

Security and Surveillance


Honeywell security and IC Realtime cameras were set up to monitor every corner of the house. Our clients have their children, their children’s friends, and young relatives running around the property. They want to ensure that they have 24/7 eyes on high-risk areas like the pool and hot tub. Additionally, the lake house backs up into a harbor. With smart surveillance, the family receives alerts when unknown visitors are entering the harbor. 

It Takes a Village

It takes a village to build a house like the Crosslake House. Throughout this project, we worked closely with our builder partner, Land’s End Development, to craft an exquisite home design that met the client’s expectations. We could not have completed this project without their partnership, skills, and expertise. 

We hope this project inspires you to start designing the luxury smart home of your dreams.
