ELAN by Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC) and Sarasota-based integration firm SmartHouse Integration recently teamed up to host over 100 industry representatives for their first ever open house mixer – an event complete with a demonstration of the ELAN home automation platform and information on joining the ELAN New Home Program, a new model that helps builders and designers partner with systems integrators to create personalized smart home experiences.
The event, hosted at the SmartHouse Integration Showroom, kicked off with president Mark van den Broek’s presentation, “A Day in the Life with a Smart Home,” an immersive demo that took guests through a full day, from the morning through the evening, as owners of an ELAN smart home. The demo included the choreographed interactive on-site automation of shades, lighting, climate, audio, video, and more. “Our showroom is the perfect place to showcase what we’re able to do with ELAN,” explains van den Broek. “Often, showing is better than telling, and that’s certainly the case with home automation. We were able to create an experience and show it to key stakeholders in the builder and design community, which is truly invaluable.”

According to van den Broek, the event was such a success that it will now become a regular staple for the company. “We accomplished our goal of the event, which was to introduce the community to us, ELAN, and the ELAN New Home Program,” he says. “We can’t wait to do it again.”
