THE LOT is a series of four new entertainment hubs located in San Ramon, San Diego, La Jolla, and Newport Beach, California. Each destination features an elevated luxury entertainment experience with an upscale restaurant, cafe, bar, movie theatre, auditorium, and more - all centered around the theme of arts and culture.
To align with its ultra-luxe aesthetic and design and deliver a premium guest experience, THE LOT needed to implement the most sophisticated control technology available in their various dining and entertainment spaces. It was essential for all four locations to standardize on one control technology platform to maintain a consistent, intuitive user experience for employees so they could easily manage all systems in the spaces, from audio and video, to lighting and temperature.
The IT team at THE LOT collaborated with San Diego-based AV Integrator Fluid Sound to deploy an all-encompassing Crestron control solution throughout each location.
THE LOT’s auditoriums are one of the entertainment hubs’ main attractions. They provide a high-end movie theatre experience with full food and beverage services. They also serve a dual-purpose, as they can be rented out for private events. Crestron control systems provide the technology backbone for each location, integrating full management and control of video, audio, HVAC, security, lighting, and more on one rock-solid, scalable platform, which allows for future expansion. All of the auditoriums have a master control location to support movies and events. When used for events, the intuitive user interface running on Crestron touch screens enable guests to book a single auditorium or multiple rooms. Employees can control all aspects of the room to customize the space for each event. When in use for a movie, employees can control lighting to create the ideal ambiance. “Crestron touch screens are not only a helpful solution for the management team, but they also assist the cleaning crews, IT teams, and general operations staff for any type of event,” says Hernandez.
Crestron thermostats Crestron technology has transformed THE LOT locations into tech-forward entertainment centers that provide guests with a sophisticated, high-end experience. Employees can now effortlessly control and manage all of the technology in the facilities, enabling each to run as efficiently as possible.
