Elan in Action
Imagine a scenario. You and the family are about to sit down to watch one of your all-time favourite films. With one touch of a button on your Elan control pad the software could…
- Turn off all lighting apart from the low level wall lights
- Lower all blinds to shut off external light
- Lower the projector and screen
- Switch to the correct output for viewing, for example Apple TV or Amazon Prime
- Tune the temperature to a pre-approved setting
- Lock all the doors
- Divert all your calls
- And even turn the Wine Cooler on
This maybe an acute Example, however the demonstration is to highlight how versatile and personal the Elan system can be.
Elan also supports a magnitude of other 3rd party devices to integrate your home easily and effectively, including Lutron, Yamaha and Pioneer. However as Elan is yet to be as well established in the market as its competitor Control 4, they are still some limitations when integrating Nest, however we can assume these are features to come. There is also now a lot of talk around Elan integrating with the Amazon Echo, which will in time give full voice control.
As with all Smart home technology the overall decision comes down to personal choice. The product has to fit in with you and your life style and enhance your home, without you even noticing it’s there.
