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.

NVX from Crestron Changes the Landscaping of Digital Media

NVXA decade ago, Crestron began planting seeds that grew into the landscape of digital media as we know it today. Those seeds flourished through the years and now flower into multiple DM NVX platforms. From encoders, decoders, DM NVX Cards and DM NVX Director, this AV distribution technology transforms how we network. Ultimately, it creates a more seamless, real-time experience as all components work in tandem.

To best benefit from all that these systems offer, you first need an expert installation company. Synergy Integrated Systems is excited to be the Raleigh area resource to help you enjoy this innovative technology.

DM NVX Advantages

Initially, to fully grasp how DM NVX changed the landscape overall, it’s useful to understand its capabilities. Therefore, let’s review a few of the key elements it provides.

Foremost, superior image quality immediately separates this technology from its predecessors. Delivering real-time, full-motion 4K60 video, it’s more than suited for presentations, live camera imaging, and video conferences. Essentially, it’s nearly as close as you can get to “being there” when you physically cannot.

Likewise, this is the only network AV solution that ensures no latency. In other words, this patent-pending technology from Crestron eliminates any latency most have unfortunately seen during network transmissions. Awkward pauses and glitches are all but eliminated due to simultaneous encoding/decoding and scales. Thus, you can enjoy quality sound and video without delays.

Similarly, the ease of control reduces room for human error. Switch and control modes on the fly with a Crestron system or XiO director. Moreover, this saves costs. No longer do you need to modify network structure with costly hardware changes.

Speaking of hardware, DM NVX software is infinitely scalable. Across all networks, its encoders and decoders deliver content throughout your home or business. With a point-to-point set-up, you reach thousands of endpoints.

Additionally, this medium delivers display accolades at 4K60, 4:4:4 and HDR on a 1Gb Ethernet. Consequently, you needn’t worry about 10Gb infrastructures that many network AV products require. Clearly, this also saves on costly upgrades and extra maintenance.

Finally, the ability to control network security is imperative. In fact, this is often one of the most critical directives. Features such as Active Directory, credential management, and 802.1x authentication and more, create a secure solution for all users.

Finding Superior Installation

Now that you understand the basics of this innovative system, it’s appropriate to find a quality installation company. After all, these superlatives mean little without an informed, supportive and skilled team. As an experienced provider of Crestron products, Synergy Integrated Systems is here to help with that aspect.

Generally, we find that our customers have a few basic questions. Foremost on their mind, is cost. To help you determine this, we provide a free consultation to review your needs. Plus, we help you discover the scope of your installation and what fits your parameters most appropriately. Then, we provide a free quote to help you finalize your decision.

Next, our customers wonder: How long does installation take? Overall, this depends on the scope of your project and how soon you wish to begin the process. To start as soon as possible, click here and schedule your appointment. Or, give us a call at 919-324-3592.

It’s that simple.

We look forward to hearing from you and advancing your network to the gardens of the future!

A Home Audio System for the Most Powerful Sound Experience

As you search for a home audio system to enhance your experience of sound, consider the power of sound itself. Since nearly the beginning of time, the potency of it resonates in our everyday lives. When sound becomes music, the raw power becomes a conduit to our soul.

American journalist, Hunter S. Thompson, says it best.

Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel.”

Markedly, the team at Synergy Integrated Systems grasps that exact inspiration. Moreover, we have the fuel to send the power of sound soaring throughout your home.

Fueling Your Home Audio System

Truly, to experience sound at its best, you need a home audio system that captures and then releases it. Ultimately, every device that you use must work together to achieve that singular goal. Often, this directive begs a couple of questions. For instance, do you need a powerful system for larger rooms? Or, what do you need to consider when buying the right home sound system?

For the first query, it’s not always as much about power as it is about device placement. At Synergy Integrated Systems, we examine the design of each room and determine how audio will best resonate. Additionally, we consider how you wish to experience acoustics in every part of your home. Once we understand your individual needs, we then help you choose each device to fuel your inspiration. Whether you prefer movies, music or both, we customize your system accordingly.

Consequently, we guide you on considerations for the best audio system available. Likewise, we help you make decisions that most appropriately fit your budget. Essentially, the premium home audio system is more about quality than quantity. If even one device isn’t fulfilling its goal to enhance your experience overall, sound suffers. Notably, the sound of suffering audio isn’t pleasant. Whether it’s movies, music or your favorite team in action, each need to heard at its fullest potential.

Superior Sound System Options

Precisely, this is why we offer premium products to experience movies, music and any other source indoors and outdoors. Generally, media servers, audio distribution systems and speakers are the equipment needed. For instance, media servers are a convenient way to store movies, music and digital photos. Audio distribution systems allow you to access multiple sources of audio independently in each zone of your home. Finally, well-placed speakers create surround sound for family rooms, home theaters and even outdoor entertainment.

Just a few of our quality providers include:

  • Monitor Audio
  • Origin Accoustics
  • Triad
  • James Loudspeaker
  • Sonos
  • Heos
  • And more!

Keep in mind, we don’t stop at just movies, music and soaring sound. Synergy also offers total home video distribution. Plus, we provide home theater/media room design and installation and home automation services.

Home Audio Raleigh – Amp Up Your Sound System

Are you planning to amp up your home audio Raleigh for a house or outdoor space? Synergy Integrated Systems has some great ideas to help you choose the best sound installation contractor. Plus, we have tips to guide you to the finest audio system that fits your needs and budget.

Selecting Your Sound System

When choosing an audio system that will work best within your home, there are a few things to consider. First, think about where you want sound to surround you. Often, our customers initially think of their lounging areas and kitchen space. However, envision everywhere that you wish to hear something other than the sound of silence. For instance, you may also enjoy music in additional areas where you spend time. Office space, bedrooms and even bathrooms are popular spots for installation of speakers.

Furthermore, don’t limit yourself to the inside of your home. Since Synergy is a contractor for many lines of speakers, we are also able to provide outdoor audio. In fact, Origin Acoustics specializes in landscape sound systems. Strategically place sound nearly anywhere. Outside and inside the home, their detailed and refined speakers are practically invisible when you want them to be. Additionally, Synergy carries customized options from each vendor with whom we partner.

Next, think about audio distribution systems. Essentially, this is the medium you choose to distribute sound throughout your home. At Synergy, we offer a wide variety of choices including: Sonos, Heos, URC, Autonomic Controls, Crestron, and Elan. Moreover, these lines offer media servers as well, to store and stream all your favorite tunes.

Installation Cost

Obviously, this begs the question, how much does it cost for surround sound installation? Basically, it depends on the scope of the work done. Similarly, the type of equipment you choose affects the price. Likewise, consider peripherals. Since you’re preparing installation for audio, it is often wise to install wires for video at the same time. Even if you don’t need video right away, it may save you some money in the long run.

Ultimately, it’s useful to get a free fixed pricing estimate. Fortunately, Synergy offers a no-cost consultation to do that and more. Not only do we provide an estimate, we help you review what systems fit your needs and budget best. For more information, fill out our contact form or give us a call.

Home Automation Systems Offer Smart Devices to Control Your Home

As technology improves, smart devices are popping up in homes across the globe. Not only do they provide an extra level of control for lighting and the like, they’re simply fun to use. However, that level of fun decreases a bit when these smart devices don’t work in tandem. For instance, one remote switches lighting level, while you must find another device to adjust sound. Perhaps, your smartphone connects to security. Then, another panel regulates exterior tasks. Eventually, keeping up with all of these different devices gets frustrating. At that point, it’s time to start thinking about home automation systems that integrate many of your control areas.

Types of Home Automation Systems

Initially, let’s consider all the systems that you can control in your home and narrow it down from there. In fact, you may be surprised at all the things home automation systems can do. Not only can you alter lighting and audio, you can manage other settings as well.

From inside your home or across the world, turn heating and cooling up or down and save on utilities. Likewise, lower or raise shades at will. Better yet, schedule it. Similarly, program landscape lighting and sprinkling systems to turn on. Or, warm up the spa and remove the automated cover so it’s ready and waiting for you! Furthermore, manage security features remotely. Lock doors and check on your home whenever you wish.

Synergy Integrated Systems offers these options and more with the innovative systems we offer. From Crestron to ELAN, these home automation systems make home control as easy as a touch of a button. In fact, the newest ELAN 8 software eliminates the need for multiple control panels and apps. When you wish to entertain or simply relax, the last thing you want to do is fumble for a device.

ELAN’s diverse smart devices include:

User Interfaces – With the approach of a hand, in-wall touch panels wake from sleep. Instantaneously, a seven-button keypad offers one touch access.

System Controllers – Coupled with brains and beauty, ELAN’s elegant controllers include the flagship gSC10 to the media room-ready g1.

Multi-Room Audio Video – Enjoy unprecedented multi-room control with the UltraMatrix™ series of A/V controllers. With the ability to carry HDMI, Ethernet, serial and IR signals, you get everything you need with a single cable.

4K HDMI Solutions – Finally, enjoy seamless, smart integration with true 4K HDMI solutions. Included are matrices, splitters, switchers, extenders and AV over IP. Plus, amps and surveillance incorporate into your system.

Calculating Costs

After feeling the excitement of all the great options home automation offers, minds tend to wander to installation cost. Fortunately, Synergy helps with that as well. Essentially, the final price depends on the scope of your project, equipment and devices you choose. To make it easier, we offer a free consultation to go over your budget and desires. During this time, we’ll help you narrow down your wish list. Or, expand it. Ultimately, it’s up to you. Moreover, we provide a fixed-price estimate. This is imperative to avoid unexpected costs.

Additionally, we believe in healthy competition. In the end, it serves us all well. With that in mind, Synergy provides non-compiled code of the system programming we write to each of our customers. Why does this matter? It means that you can feel confident down the road if you need enhancements or repairs. You will be free to check with other vendors. Of course, we hope that you will choose us thanks to our outstanding expertise and customer service!

Home Theater Installation Wilmington NC – Enhancing Your Entertainment

Following a long day at work or an exhausting week, few things are more relaxing than dinner and a movie. After all, who doesn’t enjoy kicking back with their preferred snack and watching their favorite flick. The lights go down. Sound surrounds you. The show starts. Then, the stranger beside you begins digging into their goodies as well. Paper rustles; snacks crunch; drinks slurp. Midway through the cacophony of extraneous sound from others, you may begin wondering if you’ve made the most peaceful choice. At this point, it’s probably time to start thinking about home theater installation Wilmington NC to perfect this picture.

Now that Synergy Integrated Systems is sharing our expertise in the Wilmington market, we can help you do it!

Control Sight and Sound in the Comfort of Your Home

First, think about how home theater installation Wilmington NC enhances your experience on multiple levels. Not only does a home theater let you view your favorite films peacefully, it’s functional for all video needs. For instance, imagine watching your preferred team in an intimate venue within your home. Invite whomever you wish and design the perfect experience for you and your guests. Or, binge on the latest and greatest series within the comfort of theater-style seating. You can control lighting and audio with the mere touch of a button.

Clearly, this begs a couple of questions. Foremost, how much does it cost for surround sound installation? Depending on the intricacy of your wiring and design motif, the answer varies. Plus, the type of audio and video equipment affect price as well. Keep in mind, if you choose to create your own home theater, you save on tickets, gas and time. Consequently, your budget may stretch a little further than you initially imagined.

Perhaps, you’re looking for something simpler. If you’re not quite ready for a full theater, installing surround sound is a good start. Depending on the size of your area, overall design and wiring needs, the cost may be less. Plus, you still benefit with the ability to fully immerse yourself in sound.

Either way, Synergy will help you enhance your home with the best design possible!
