ELAN

A Day in the Life of a Smart Home with ELAN Systems

There are many products on the market that tout smart home automation. Numerous products for control and automation include programmable thermostats that make climate control easier. Other products, allow you to adjust lighting and window shades with a remote. Some help you control video and audio. Several provide remote access to control security and door locks. Our team at Synergy Integrated Systems, enjoys the proliferation of all this smart-house integration. Especially, when we find a company that does it all. ELAN Systems is that company. In fact, they’re one of the best and a global leader in automation systems.

What does that mean for you? We’d like to show you what it means. To fully visualize it, let’s imagine a day in the life of a smart home with total control thanks to ELAN Systems.

Waking Up with ELAN Systems

First, let’s go ahead and wake up a bit early. We’re going to have a busy day with our innovative ELAN system. Right before the sun has completely risen from the horizon, soft audio gently begins to play from in-ceiling speakers inconspicuously placed in your bedroom ceiling. This audio can be ocean waves lapping at the shore, windchimes rustling in an imaginary breeze or your favorite music to welcome a new day.

As the audio begins, your HVAC system turns on with thermostats set to the exact temperature you prefer when you rise. If you want it to be a little cooler or warmer at any point, simply use your voice control or smartphone to adjust it. As the sun proceeds to escape the horizon, smart window shades automatically open. Gentle lighting filters into your room. It is time to rise.

Enjoying Your Morning Routine

While you go about your morning routine, your smart home continues to work for you in the background. Lighting is set to turn on for each room you need. When you depart the room, lighting turns off to save you energy.

Likewise, your favorite morning video plays in whichever room you choose. Like to hear stock updates as you shower? Or, perhaps you prefer an entertaining morning show. Either way, you can watch video from the bathroom, your bedroom, the kitchen and any other room in your house with an audio and video feed. As you move from room to room, it plays seamlessly pausing with voice control and restarting the same way or with a remote user interface.

When it’s time to leave, ready your home with the elegant ELAN touch panel. Set security to the mode you prefer, double check door locks and take a quick glance through your surveillance cameras. Once you have the house secure, head out for your day.

Dealing with Details During the Day

Once you’ve left, your home keeps working for you. Since this is an imagination of a day in the life, let’s take you to the beach as it toils away!

While you sink your feet into the sand, climate control back at your home switches thermostats to the appropriate level to save on costs. As the sun’s rays shine upon the ocean, they’re also shining on your house. However, you needn’t worry. Window shades and curtains close and open according to the temperature to conserve energy.

Midday, as the surf tickles your toes, you realize that you forgot to water the lawn. You laugh. With ELAN, you don’t have to remember to water the lawn. It does it for you.

Later, as you lounge on the shore many hours from your home, you hear a soft ding from your smartphone. Someone is at your door. Fortunately, you can see on your mobile device that it’s just a package delivery. For extra peace of mind, you do a quick scan of each surveillance camera. Your property is secure; you may relax.

Since you’re having so much fun, you decide to lounge longer than expected. Since it will now be dark by the time you get home, you turn on lighting via the ELAN mobile app on your smartphone. Then, you set the hot tub to heat up a bit in case you want to go for an evening dip. As you get closer to home, you use remote access to raise the hot tub lid. You’ve decided to take that soak after all.

Welcome Home!

Once you arrive home, it’s ready for you. At Synergy Integrated Systems, we can actually program smart home automation to learn your habits. It will maintain lighting, climate and security.

Landscape lighting greets you with its soft glow. Audio begins playing as soon as you enter the door. Since you’re in a relaxed mood, you use voice control and request your “chill lighting” mode that our team at Synergy programmed for you. Later, you’ll likely switch lighting control to “entertainment” mode and have a few friends over. Either way, you can change it all with the touch of a button or utterance of a few words.

Welcome to your smart home!

Customize Your Automation Experience

Sound delightful? It is. Better yet, you can customize this experience to fit your personal needs the best. Our team at Synergy Integrated Systems keeps you in mind from the start. For us, smart home control is not just about a user interface and innovative technology. It’s also about the people who use it. Our human controllers are just as important as our devices and controllers. We think this technology should simplify your life, not complicate it.

Therefore, we strive to get to know you from the beginning. At our free consultation, we work to understand your lifestyle and desires. Then, we tailor a comprehensive quality solution to meet your needs and your budget.

Afterwards, we develop cost for your installation. Because we bid most projects based on the scope of work and not on an hourly rate, we provide fixed price quotes — not estimates. You can count on your quote being the final total for your project.

ELAN Home Automation Offers Smart and Versatile Benefits

We have a word of the day for you – domotics. Perhaps, you’ve heard it. Likely, you haven’t, as we’ve noticed even our spell-checking platform is confused by it. Either way, it’s a fabulous word that results in fabulous things. Derived from the Latin word domus, meaning house, domotics refers to technology that makes a home smart. Basically, it refers to smart home automation. Better yet, we want to make YOU smarter by providing a little information on ELAN home automation.

A Brief History of Smart Home Automation

First, let’s backtrack a bit as we understand the full definition of domotics and smart home automation. In the early 1900s, the idea of household products doing work independently of human assistance proliferated with the introduction of electricity. Washers, refrigerators and sewing machines were just a few of the labor-saving machines that made our tasks at home easier.

By 1975, desire for more control met new technology. At this point, wired communication provided freedom to regulate additional devices with brief radio frequency bursts. Primarily, this led to remote control of lights and appliances. As we move into 2020, the landscape has grown even further.

What Can Be Smart in Your Home?

Essentially, it’s easier to consider what you can’t automate. Even with what you may come up with, there is probably a company out there with a solution! In fact, Synergy Integrated Systems is one of them. We strive to stay on the cutting-edge of smart technology and partner with the best companies capable of providing it. ELAN home automation is one of those elite providers. More importantly, we are proud to be an experienced installer of their products.

To best grasp what we can do for you and your home, consider how our expertise can make systems in your home operate smartly. Just a few things that you can currently control with smart home automation include:

  • Lighting – control ambiance no matter where you are
  • Video – movies, games, shows, whatever you like, view it from any room in the house
  • Sound – send sound soaring indoors and out
  • Heating and Air – schedule the atmosphere ahead of time or change temps with the touch of a button
  • Security -keep your home safe with innovative features
  • Sprinklers – water the lawn without even being home
  • Smoke and CO Detectors – synch sensors into your smart home system
  • Air Quality – monitor levels within your home
  • Kitchen Devices – cook dinner while you’re still at work
  • Blinds and Shades – control lighting without moving anything but your finger

Keep in mind, this just a sampling of what you can do.

Benefits of ELAN Home Automation

To understand the full benefits of ELAN home automation, it helps to have more specific examples. After all, you’re only as good as the tools you have. ELAN products are powerful, versatile and adaptable.

Initially, consider relaxation and entertainment. ELAN approaches these directives with several tactics to meet both goals. Using one interface, ELAN allows you to control music, video and essentially everything else with the touch of a button. Send sound soaring in any room of your house. Bring movies or your favorite sporting event with you as you enter new rooms. Change channels, turn audio up, turn it down, whatever you need, with a unified system.

Moreover, as you enjoy your sights and sounds, relax in the perfect ambiance. Manipulate lights, shades and blinds with one command. Or, set ambiance ahead of time to fit specific moods. Program lights to begin at specific times such as wake-up lighting. Or, request a mood when you’re ready for it such as party lighting or dinner music.

Similarly, control climate to set the perfect environment. Once you get comfortable, the last thing you want to do is hop up and adjust air. Change the temperature with the touch of a button. Likewise, climate systems actually anticipate what you may need. Therefore, you can relax in comfort without giving it a second thought. Pre-set climate for various times of the day, eliminating the need for changing the thermostat at various times.

Enjoy the outdoors? Your smart home does too! Remotely, program the hot tub to heat and open the lid before you head out to hop in. Set music and lighting throughout your outdoor space for the perfect ambiance. Forgot to water the lawn? No worries, your automated smart home remembers for you.

All of the elements mentioned above are also easy to use. ELAN’s intuitive systems are easy to understand and enjoy. Better yet, their elegant controls blend seamlessly into your home.

Why You Should Make Your Home Smarter

Now that you know smart home capabilities, you may wonder why you should begin installation now. Foremost, this technology is more affordable than ever. Plus, it’s advanced to a point that it’s also easy to update when it advances again. Okay, we admit, that may sound a little confusing. To clarify, you don’t have to add all systems at once. If you desire to advance your system later, you can. Or, if technological options improve, installing new products is much simpler than in the past. Integration is the key. More and more home products are made to work seamlessly with automation controls.

Smart homes save money too. A smart HVAC system intuits needs and adjusts to be efficient. Plus, you can easily view a readout of your utility usage. Correspondingly, automatically-timed shades use light efficiently. Blinds and shades that react to internal temperatures also save on your utility bills.

Not only are these perks good for the environment, they increase your quality of living as well. Saving time and being comfortable makes for a happier home. Saving money on utility bills adds to the happiness factor! Often, we’re so busy taking care of everyone else that we forget to take care of ourselves. Your smart home won’t forget.

Similarly, when you improve your home for yourself, it improves it for others. Consequently, smart home automation can actually increase your house’s value. Not only will your family enjoy it, future occupants will savor the benefits as well. When it comes time to sell, these features will add value to your investment.

A Smart Home is a Safe Home

Most importantly, at Synergy Integrated Systems, we help make smart homes safe homes. From nearly anywhere in the world, turn lights on or off. With the touch of a button, ensure you closed all the doors. Double-check that you locked all entry-points. Ensure your security system is active and view live footage.

In the end, this means that you can relax wherever you are. At home, or away, you will know that your home is secure.

Choosing the Best Installation Company

All this fabulous technology matters little without proper installation. Our expert team at Synergy Integrated has years of experience. Never, do we outsource our work. We trust our team and stick with them. Proudly, we are a BBB-accredited business. Also, we are a member of the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA). Plus, Synergy Integrated Systems is fully-bonded and insured.

From the beginning, we create an atmosphere that focuses on our customer and their needs. Always, we provide fixed priced estimates, so that you know what to expect up-front. We do not charge open-ended hourly rates, as we are well aware that technology occasionally takes additional time.

Plus, we offer free consultations. During these meetings, we help you customize a system that fits your needs best. Once we get to know you and your home, we provide information, suggestions and guidance.

ELAN Home Automation and Customized Smart Home Solutions

ELAN Home AutomationSometimes, it seems, the more advanced our world becomes, the more hectic it gets. Since we can do tasks more quickly, we add more to our plate. Then, others expect more from us. It becomes a vicious circle. Inevitably, we end up taking care of everything else and forget about ourselves. However, what if your home could actually take care of you? Fortunately, ELAN home automation does exactly that and more. Especially, this is true when Synergy Integrated Systems handles your installation and programming.

Moreover, ELAN systems help you control nearly every aspect of running a smart home. A seamless elegant interface allows you to navigate your rooms. With the single touch of a button or voice command, you can bring your home to life.

Smart Home Solutions ELAN Home Automation Provides

First, let’s begin by addressing some problems that you may have and helping you solve them. Frequently, we find our customers have a few key issues they wish to address.

Often, at the top of their list is security. Since we’re always on the run, the ability to control security within our home is key. Wonder if you closed the garage door or set the alarm as you dashed out of the house? No worries. With a glance at your smartphone, you can ensure you did, or fix it if you didn’t. Someone ringing your doorbell? ELAN home automation alerts you immediately so that you can see who’s at your home. In fact, we can place security cameras in any area of your house. From all corners of the world, you have simple access to all your systems.

If you wish to be environmentally-friendly and save money on your utility bill, we help with that as well. For instance, set blinds to open and close according to time of day or temperature. Adjust heating and cooling for comfort when you wake or arrive home. Turn lights on or off remotely or according to a pre-set schedule. Better yet, want to hop in the hot tub after a long day of tasks but forgot to turn it up? We can design a system that you can control remotely. Before you arrive, adjust the heat from your smartphone.

Likewise, your smart home system can wash your outdoor worries away. Water your lawn or control outdoor lighting. Throughout your home and outside, the ELAN system will also inform you of energy consumption. Consequently, you can check your usage to see where you need to cut back or adjust settings.

Let Your Home Take Care of You!

Furthermore, we can set up other systems to take care of you when you’re at home. After a busy day, want a little music to greet you as you enter the door? Synergy Integrated Systems can make it happen. Within our intuitive programming, we can set times for audio to play throughout your home or in specific areas. With the touch of button, change settings, playlists, whatever fits your mood. Ultimately, we help you customize and personalize what fit your busy lifestyle best.

Additionally, you can control video to play in any room you wish. Stream from multiple devices, amp up your home theater, watch games as you stroll from room to room. When you’re in the mood to entertain guests, pre-set the mood for every area of your house. Therefore, you can enjoy everyone’s company rather than worrying over the minute details that distract from your fun!

How to Begin

ELAN Home Systems for Customized Smart Home Living

Many of our customers wonder if ELAN home systems add value to their house. Resoundingly, the answer is YES. In fact, ELAN’s innovative systems add value to your lifestyle as well. After all, what’s the point in adding fabulous features to your home unless you get to benefit too? Precisely, this is why we install ELAN products for our customers at Synergy Integrated Systems. It’s wise to control the financial outcome of your future. However, having fun with a little control of your own is an added bonus!

Supreme Control with ELAN Home Systems

Obviously, the ability to control audio and video on our televisions has a long history. For the most part, we expect it. Now, with the multiple ELAN home systems available, you can do that and so much more. In fact, ELAN home automation does so much it’s hard to know where to even begin.

To keep it simple, let’s start with audio and video control options. With unmatched convenience, ELAN reinvents home entertainment. Foremost, a single elegant interface allows you to enjoy consistent experiences across multiple devices. From wall panels and remotes to personal tablets or phones, customize audio and video in any room of your home. Ultimately, from this same interface, you can control nearly any aspect connected to your home’s systems inside and out.

Speaking of other aspects, consider lighting and climate control. ELAN’s intuitive interface actually anticipates your needs and keeps your family comfortable while conserving energy. Smart lighting greets you when you wake up or arrive home. Conversely, set lights to turn off when not needed. Or, switch them off remotely if you’ve accidentally left them on. Similarly, program shades to raise or lower in response to sunlight or indoor temperatures. Better yet, ELAN provides a detailed history of your energy consumption allowing you to monitor and adjust usage.

Next, not everything that we wish to control is indoors. ELAN extends to outdoor lighting in landscaping, audio, and video. Therefore, you can enjoy the ease of home automation outdoors as well. Plus, you can program lawn watering, spa pumps and covers too! To see an ELAN system in action, check out Kim Erle’s Green Smart Home.

Simplify Security

Last but not least, ELAN offers multiple security features. For instance, provide landscapers limited remote access to monitor the system and make adjustments. Or, integrate ELAN security options into your entire system. Remotely, view live video throughout your home and outdoors. Lock gates, turn lights off or on and even speak through the interface when needed. Likewise, with smart apps, you can do each of these tasks from nearly anywhere in the world.

Correspondingly, our customers also feel secure with our installation process. Our highly-trained team at Synergy Integrated Systems offers friendly service around the clock. Plus, we understand that sometimes you need updates or changes. To ensure that you receive a competitive price, we offer our systems in completely open source. In other words, we provide you with a copy of the system programming in its most basic form (non-compiled code). Consequently, you may choose the home automation company of your choice for future work. Of course, we hope you choose us!

If you’re now wondering how much an ELAN system costs, we can help with that as well. Obviously, it depends on the elements you wish to incorporate and the scope of your project.

Surprisingly, the concept of a smart home began over 100 years ago. In fact, its evolution is fascinating. Surprisingly, Nikola Tesla brought the first remote control to the market in 1898. Shortly thereafter, the concept of home appliances exploded along with the industrial revolution. Initially, these devices required manual control by users. Eventually, innovation and affordable technology propelled this industry towards the smart home as we know it today. Notably, ELAN home systems remain at the forefront of home automation, lighting and a plethora of other concepts. Fortuitously, Synergy Integrated Systems installs this cutting-edge system and more.

ELAN Home Systems Provided by Synergy Integrated Systems

Often, when homeowners imagine automation for their home, they consider their audio and video needs. However, smart home systems control much more than that. In fact, ELAN home systems seamlessly combine a plethora of components connected to your home. Better yet, a single, elegant interface lets you enjoy consistent experiences over multiple devices. Therefore, you can control nearly every home automation system from anywhere in your house. Or, from anywhere in the world! Best of all, we at Synergy Integrated Systems offer and install ELAN products locally. We serve the greater Raleigh area and eastern NC with home automation, security and home theater products and controls.

Audio and Video Options

First, let’s explore exactly what you can automate. As mentioned, audio and video components are generally at the top of the list. Whether you are designing a home theater or simply wish to have media servers and speaker controls, Synergy can help. From wired to wireless, we design systems that fill your world with sight and sound throughout your home.

Additional Home Automation Options

Additionally, consider a wider variety of ways to manage your home:

Lighting

Seemingly, the options are endless. Like the idea of lights greeting you when you wake or return home? Or, you may prefer to have the lights come on when you’re not home so that it appears you are. Perhaps, you’re in a mellow mood and want only an ambient glow. Either way, perform all these functions using your ELAN remote, touch panel, personal tablet or phone.

Climate

Better yet, stay comfortable and save on your electric bill. Not only do intelligent features anticipate your needs, they allow you to turn systems on or off when you’re away. Moreover, ELAN provides a detailed history of your energy consumption.

Outdoors

Speaking of comfort, wouldn’t it be great to come home to your spa waiting for you to hop into it? Essentially, it’s very doable with automation that adjusts heat, opens the cover and sets lighting. Additionally, you can control your landscape lighting and watering systems. This is another way to conserve energy and water.

Security

Whether you need to lock a door or see who’s around your home, automated security keeps you safe. Synergy Integrated Systems is proud to be a certified distributor and installer of Alarm.com security systems. In addition to automated features that protect your security when home, controlling it from anywhere protects your house too.

Shading

Sometimes, customers overlook another great feature – shading. In addition to adding unparalleled convenience it also saves energy. Shades, curtains and blinds are often hard to reach. Therefore, pressing a button or giving an Alexa command to open or close them makes it easier. Moreover, ensure your security by setting timers to close curtains automatically during certain hours. Furthermore, Synergy can program shades to automatically raise or lower based on temperature, lights in use or time of day.
