Minnesota Builder Pre-wires Every House for Elan Home Automation

By |


ELAN_MN_LivingRoom.gifWhen Rocky DiGiacomo, a Minneapolis homebuilder, heard about the ELAN g! Series IP-based Home Control System that can use the iPhone to control every household function, he knew homebuyers would love it. Now DiGiacomo is pre-wiring every new home he builds with ELAN g! home control technology -- leaving it up to the consumer to then decide which functions and which components they want to install in their new home as part of the finishing process.

DiGiacomo, founder of DiGiacomo Homes and Renovation, Inc., wanted his houses to include value-added features to differentiate them from the competition. He believes the ELAN g! system is going to help him sell a new $1.3 million house in Golden Valley, Minnesota. This is his first ELAN g! system installation, and he integrated 6-zone independent and simultaneous audio/video sourcing into 9 rooms, energy management control, and pre-wired for the home's security system and surveillance cameras.

Well aware of the iPhone's massive popularity, he believes that the ELAN g! iPhone app is a way to make home control simple and intuitive. The ELAN g! app is also available on internet-connected iPads, laptops, and PCs, providing complete home control from anywhere in the world.

The ELAN g! Series Home Control System provides users with control from many devices, including TVs, touch screens, touch pads, PCs, iPhones, and iPads. The standardized interface works across platforms, so that the g!Mobile app appears and works similarly on ELAN touch screens, valets, and handheld remotes as well as users' televisions and mobile devices.

Individual apps for each subsystem allow the user to control security, climate, lighting, media, irrigation, pool/spa, messaging, video and photos.
