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. (more…)
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.

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.

If you have visions of a custom home theater playing about in your mind, you probably also have many questions. In fact, while you strive to create a relaxing experience in your home, the planning aspect may feel everything but. With so many choices available, narrowing them down sometimes feels overwhelming. Therefore, it’s imperative to have a team that understands your needs and has the experience to identify your best options. At Synergy Integrated Systems, we provide that and more!
Custom Home Theater Design Questions and Answers
First, let’s go over a couple of frequent queries. Often, our customers wonder exactly what a true custom home theater room looks like. Typically, a custom home theater has several common components. Included are sound that surrounds, a projector of some type, a screen to capture the images and seating. From there, it’s ultimately up to you as to what it looks like. After all, we customize your space to best enhance your experience and to fit your lifestyle. Similarly, don’t worry if you haven’t yet figured out the overall look. That’s where our experience comes into play and we are more than happy to help with the design process.
Similarly, many clients ask about the best size for a home theater room. Ultimately, the dimensions should blend with existing areas in your home. Plus, you need proper spacing for the projector and screen you wish to use. Then, it’s important to consider seating and distance from the viewing area. Ultimately, overall size doesn’t matter as much as creating suitable acoustics. For instance, the shape of your room affects sound waves.
Fortunately, this is one of many aspects that we cover in our free consultation. Our team of experts stay current on all of the latest equipment and products to complete your theater. At Synergy, we carry only top-quality equipment and provide consulting every step of the way. When you visit our Raleigh showroom, we will discuss the above and consider other options as well. From seating and lighting to sound and projector options, we offer clear answers to all of your questions. Moreover, we handle your project from start to finish. Therefore, you can relax before we even began your custom home theater creation!
Speaking of sound considerations, the ever-changing audio field of Hollywood is a lot to keep up with. Perhaps, you’ve heard of some of the numbers, 5.1, 6.1 and now 7.1. The first number refers to how many speakers. For example, a 7.1 consists of 7 speakers. Generally, the .1 indicates a subwoofer. Often, dedicated theaters have multiple subwoofers to create an even bass level. Likewise, in-ceiling sound is also an option. These speakers add a level of height to audio and create an immersive surround sound experience.
So that you receive the best sound possible, we partner with multiple providers including:
Another critical aspect of your home theater is the projection type that you choose. To get the biggest display, we utilize a 2-piece design – a projector and a screen. Thus, you can view your favorite flicks and games on 120” to 140” of glorious space. Or, venture even bigger if your room accommodates it.
Since these displays are so large, the highest resolution is essential. Previously, this was a high definition system with a 1080P resolution. Currently, ultra-high definition or 4K are more common. Not only does this technology provide more detail and clarity, it creates more colors.
Finally, consider the screen itself. No longer are you stuck with a fixed frame with a 3-inch fuzzy trim surrounding it. Although, if that’s what you envision, we can make it happen! However, many of our customers appreciate the additional options at hand. Newer screens can have nearly zero edging. Furthermore, some screens implement LED backlights that create the illusion of a picture floating on the wall. Or, opt for a motorized screen that recesses to reveal a piece of art when not in use.
No matter what you choose, it helps to see it first when possible. Before your visit, feel free to explore our photo gallery of projects.
