Canderel, the developer of Aura, Canada's tallest condominium, is attempting to turn heads yet again with what they aim to make one of Toronto's most luxurious residences, YC Condos, at Yonge and College. The tower will be equipped with a suite of cutting edge home automation capabilities all controlled by one Samsung device. Although home automation devices are nothing new to the luxury condominium market, the unification of all of these technologies aims to create optimal integration and ease of use.

The digital home is a three-party project between Canderel, Samsung and True Marque Ltd, Canadian distributor of Samsung SDS. The device will allow YC residents to wirelessly perform many automated tasks to control a variety of home convenience, entertainment, and safety features. The Digital Home system includes the Samsung Smart Station, a wireless gateway to connect various devices including a Samsung Door Lock, Samsung Door Camera, and a Samsung Wall Mount central control panel. All of these will all be standard in YC's penthouse suites from floor 59 upwards. Residents on the lower floors of the building can purchase the system as an upgrade to their suite.

More features which can be added to the Digital Home package include motion sensor triggers, centralized lighting control, blinds control, thermostat control, and an en-bloc switch, which allows one receptacle control to terminate power to a plugged in appliance. A package of Samsung TVs, Blue Ray Player, and sound system are available to purchasers here as well.

In order to give us a better idea of what living in the lap of digital control looks like, Canderel has created a video to show how all of these amenities will function in one of their suites.
