ELAN HOME SYSTEMS...
...has developed a complete solution to whole-house audio, and video, distribution. In these multi-zone systems there are 3, 6 or 12 A/V zones, each able to select independently from up to 8 audio or video sources. While Mom relaxes to a jazz CD in the Master Bath, Dad can tune in the game out in the garage, young Billy can watch a movie on the Rec Room TV and Sis can listen to her MP3's in her room. In-wall and in-ceiling speakers sound great and keep out of the way!
But, couldn't you do that with a CD player in the bathroom, a portable radio in the garage, a DVD player in the rec room and an MP3 player in the bedroom? Of course. But, you'll need each of those devices, and the tape deck, the VCR, the satellite receiver, the digital cable TV box and all of the other Audio and Video sources available to the Elan system duplicated in every room of the home.


SHARED RESOURCES...
...and a single family "library" containing your music and movie collection (no more hunting from room to room for that copy of "Independence Day" or the latest John Mayer CD): This is a better way.
Better still, with the Via DJ "music server" we can store your entire music library on a massive computer hard drive, making any title available any time from any zone. The DJ can simultaneously play 3 different tracks out into 3 zones. It catalogs your library and makes finding any song easy through simple "drill down" menues.


PAGING AND DOOR COMMUNICATIONS...
...are the most compelling reason to install the Elan system. The Z600 Communications Controller ties together the home's phones, front door intercom / camera stations and the speakers throughout the house, making the sum much greater than the parts. Music which is playing is automatically muted, as the doorbell chimes over all speakers. Pick up any telephone, press #D, and you are able to converse with your visitor. If a phone call rings in, again the music mutes so you don't have to shout over it, and you can put your caller on hold with #H and page for Dad over the speakers with #P to take his call.
The Via! screen becomes a video monitor with a touch of your finger, displaying the door camera image wherever you are.


A COLOR TOUCH SCREEN...
...the Via! even displays cover artwork for each of your albums stored on the DJ, automatically downloaded daily after new CD's have been stored using the DJ's built in player.
The Via! displays dozens of control screens to allow you to completely control all the source electronics from the remote zone in which it is located. Also control central lighting, alarm, sprinkler, heating and cooling and hundreds of other home systems. Eliminate the "wall clutter" and replace clusters of controls with a single touch screen.
Via!'s come in wall mount, wired tabletop Valet and soon wireless Via! 2 versions.


ELAN INTERFACES EASILY...
...with hundreds of residential systems for simple, graphical control of your entire home. Using industry-standard RS-232, RS-485 and Ethernet communications procols, Elan interfaces through System Control Modules with your whole home. Elan has partnered with many manufacturers like Lutron and Vantage (lighting control), GE Security (Advent, Concord and Caddx alarm systems), HAI (HVAC and general automation) and even Jandy (hot tubs) to offer pre-written software interconnects.
