This Home Proves That It Is Easy Being Green

When this homeowner made the decision to rebuild, he made sustainable solutions and energy efficiency a priority. The result was a cutting-edge new residence with a certification goal of LEED Platinum.

The beautifully crafted home was built on the foundation of an ELAN smart home automation system attached to a SpeakerCraft MRA 664 whole home audio controller. The ELAN system installed in the Sunset Green Home is programmed to maximize the efficient use of lights, shades and drapes, ceiling fans, HVAC, and outdoor systems such as landscape lighting and irrigation, ensuring that all measures are taken to conserve energy without sacrificing comfort or convenience.
The project was a finalist in the Sustainable Project of the Year category for the 2016 Mark of Excellence System Integrators Awards Program. The Mark of Excellence program recognizes the best in custom integration and installed technology each year. Learn more about applying for the program.
