The Maxwell House Project: A Perfect Marriage of Design & Technology


Explore our latest custom home project!

ResTech Systems recently wrapped another custom home for a client in Minnesota: the Maxwell Bay project! We spent months working with various trade partners on the project to integrate whole home automation, lighting and shading solutions, smart home security, a dedicated home theater, and a central vacuum system into our client’s luxury estate. 

Now, we’re thrilled to show you the results! Designing and integrating beautiful and easy-to-use technology systems into homes in Minnetonka, MN, and surrounding areas has been our passion for decades. Keep reading below for an overview of the Maxwell Bay project!

Technology Goals


Our client had one overarching goal for the Maxwell Bay house: a fully automated home that was easy to use. They wanted simplified, app-driven control that allowed anyone in the family to shut off the house or power it on with a single button press. 

Luckily, Savant is more than capable of unifying large estates and multiple systems under a centralized operating platform. With Savant, the client can control everything in the house using the Savant Pro mobile app. Additionally, we installed several wall-mounted keypads for easy, one-touch access to lighting and other frequently used scenes. 

Design Goals


Along with simplicity of use, our client wanted simplicity of design with discreet systems and devices that blended seamlessly with the home décor. For ResTech Systems, achieving the client’s design vision meant collaborating with the builder, interior designer, and other trade professionals from the very beginning of the project to integrate hidden technology solutions into the house. 

Our team worked with the HVAC contractor to relocate nine wall-mounted thermostats and replace them with inconspicuous temperature sensors painted to match the surrounding walls, removing unnecessary clutter while still ensuring intuitive climate control. We also worked with a contractor to build custom wood pockets that conceal the home’s motorized shades while still providing easy access for servicing.

The client benefited from bringing our team in early to work with the other trades on-site at the Maxwell Bay house. Using a collaborative process, we were able to install the smart solutions our client desired while reducing technology clutter and maintaining the home’s beautiful interior design. 

Home Solutions


We installed whole home automation with Savant and multiple technology subsystems to make our client’s lifestyle more comfortable and easier to maintain. 

  • A central vacuum system from VACUFLO keeps the Maxwell Bay home looking and feeling clean, healthy, and dust-free. 
  • Camouflaged temperatures probes maintain a comfortable temperature in every room based on the family’s preferences and the outside weather. 
  • Vantage lighting control with toe kick lighting and occupancy sensors plus motorized shades from QMotion ensure the house is always illuminated to the client’s desires.
  • Honeywell security and IC Realtime cameras proactively protect the family and property.
  • Paradigm’s landscape speakers and retractable outdoor shades from Progressive Screens turn the backyard into a relaxing oasis.
  • A dedicated home theater with a Sony projector provides hours of entertainment for the whole family.
  • An enterprise-grade network from Luxul and Ruckus keeps the Maxwell Bay house functioning without interruption.
