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.
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.

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. However, we would be glad to determine what options fit you and your budget best. For more information, request a free consultation here. Or, give us a call at 919-324-3592!

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Products from ELAN Home Systems
To enhance your experience, Synergy offers multiple products from ELAN.
- User Interfaces – In-wall touch panels wake from sleep with the approach of a hand. Instantaneously, a seven-button keypad offers one touch access. When away from home, close the blinds or answer the door. ELAN gives you power no matter where you are.
