Dr. Femi Adekeye of Calgary, Alberta, Canada has built, lived in, and sold three houses in just the last five years. And in each home, he has installed an ELAN® Home Systems A/V distribution system.
In his last home – a 6,000 square-foot home featuring an extensive audio/video system – Dr. Adekeye installed the ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System, which was later named the CEDIA 2011 Electronic Lifestyles Silver Award Winner for Integrated Home in the $70,500 – $105,500 level.
“I enjoy designing and building homes, and including the latest technology adds a new level of interaction and sophistication with each house I build,” said Dr. Adekeye. “We’ve been using ELAN systems for about five years now, and the systems keep getting better and better.”
Dr. Adekeye’s latest home features the following technologies:
-A 7.1 home theater that utilizes a Runco projector and 106″ screen, seven ELAN in-wall speakers and a Sunfire HRS-12 subwoofer.
-Tucked away in the wall of the home theater behind tinted glass, you can find an ELAN HC12 Home Controller, ELAN V85 Component Video Controller, two ELAN S86A Multi-Room A/V Controllers, an ELAN C2 Communications Controller and an ELAN DT11 Tuner.
-Six flat screen HDTVs including a 52-inch in the family room and master bedroom, a 40-inch behind the bar and three 46-inchers side-by-side in the gym.
-12 independent audio zones and a total of 24 speakers, in addition to the home theater.
-These systems get their media from three satellite feeds, an am/fm receiver, a Sony 400-disc Blu-ray changer, Shoutcast Radio (built in to ELAN g!) and Apple TV for videos.
-The system integrate with the home’s security, four outdoor surveillance cameras and DVR, and the CentraLite lighting system.
-The ELAN g! system can be controlled through a TS7 seven-inch in-wall touch screen in the kitchen, seven TS2 touch panels throughout the house, a computer with an internet connection, an iPad, an iPod Touch, or an iPhone.
“I use my iPhone to adjust the system and check on things constantly, because I always have it with me, and the ELAN g! app is very simple to use,” said Dr. Adekeye. “The whole-home control of audio/video, lighting, security and surveillance will be a big selling point when I put this home on the market, just as the audio/video systems were in my last two homes.”
The ELAN g! System has been awarded a 2011 Residential Systems Magazine RESI Award, a 2011 Custom Retailer Magazine EXCITE! Award, a 2011 CE Pro Magazine BEST Award, a Platinum Level 2011 CEA Mark of Excellence Award by the Consumer Electronics Association and a 2011 Gold Level Electronic House Magazine Product of the Year Award.
