What is Home Automation?
As a very basic definition, you can refer to home automation as anything that gives you remote or automatic control of things around the home: Your lights, audio video system, garage doors, sprinklers, surveillance cameras, heating and cooling system, blinds, security system, pool / hot tub, and more.
DYNAMIC AUDIO VIDEO can design and install a custom home automation package based on your specific needs and budget. All can be integrated and easily controlled by a universal remote, touch panel controller, internet, or even your mobile phone.
But that's not the only cool part. Home automation allows commands from one system to activate commands on other systems. For example: setting your alarm system to "AWAY" mode automatically shuts off the lights, powers down TV's & audio equipment and sets the thermostats to a desired setting. Or pushing "play" on your DVD sets the lights to a movie viewing setting. We can even automatically send you a text when your kids arrive home from school! The possibilities are endless. (see video below for demo)
What sets ELAN HOME AUTOMATION from the competition? It's the only home automation system that provides a 100% identical user interface across all platforms (remote, in-wall touchscreen, computer, iPhone/iPad). Unlike the competiton, this simply means a consistent user experience and less confusion. This is the main reason why we proudly supported this system since its beginning.
Here are a few samples of touch panel interfaces:
In the news!
