Superlatives amass when describing this castle in the sky: extraordinary, striking, grand, impressive, majestic. Even so, “simple” is the word that best epitomizes how Digital Home Technologies made an elaborate entertainment system work for the penthouse owners.
The crown to a Chicago high-rise covers thousands of square feet over three stories.In its leather-cushioned home theater, the ceiling’s tiny lights sparkle like night stars to welcome friends before the lights go down for a favorite movie. The Big Dipper might surprise gazers on the house’s deck as they enjoy a barbecue while listening to Gustav Holst‘s “The Planets” or Willie Nelson’s “Blue Skies” in one of the penthouse’s 16 zones for personalizing music. As guests look out on the city’s skyline, perhaps Sinatra’s “Chicago” would do best.
Choices like rocking to classics in one zone or to Mozart in another take but a finger’s touch on a smartphone, tablet or wall control. The heart? Elan g! The Elan simplifies audio, television, lighting and more. Lightly tapping an icon gives Elan users total ease of control whether they are at home or in Vera Cruz, Moscow or Shanghai. It’s all the same. Adjust the window shades or the dwelling’s temperature? A breeze. Monitor a security camera? Simple. While much of setup is wireless, extensive in-wall cabling installed during the house’s construction ensures reliability of the complex system.
Access to the penthouse’s 12 televisions spread across the three floors is just as convenient. FOX, MSNBC, ESPN, Discovery, History, Oxygen and many more channels flow from Comcast and Apple TV. With Apple’s AirPlay installed, the owners can take images, audio or video from their iPhones, iPads or even their Macs and mirror it on any of the screens. They can project family pictures, stream a peaceful video of an aquarium scene or whatever else content their devices contain.
Top-flight home automation is easy too. Just touch Digital Home Technologies.
