Redesigned ELAN Home Systems web site makes it easy for both consumers and dealers to fully explore the g! system with installation portfolios, system design templates, a slideshow consumer brochure, TV commercial, searchable product catalog, and mobile device app downloads.
CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA - The ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System has become the custom installation industry's control system to beat since it was introduced two years ago. ELAN Home Systems has added to that lead today by introducing the industry's most user-friendly and easily navigable web site, www.elanhomesystems.com, which allows consumers to experience all the wonders of g! from the comfort of their homes. Containing all the educational info, photos, homes profiles and packaged home control solutions a homeowner needs to make a purchasing decision right at their fingertips, entering the world of whole-home entertainment and control just got a whole lot easier!
"Our new web site showcases and amplifies the remarkable capabilities of the ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System like," said ELAN President Paul Starkey. "It operates simultaneously as a compelling and informative portal for consumers and an extremely effective tool for our dealers and installers. We encourage dealers to leverage the creative capabilities of the new site in their in-store presentation programs."
The completely redesigned site offers consumers a first-hand look at the g! system like never before with an extensive photo portfolio of g! installations, a searchable full product catalog, a list of all integration partners, good, better and best home system templates to match every consumer's need or budget, a slideshow brochure, a TV commercial, several TV news spots and videos, and even a demo of the ELAN g! user interface and its nine apps. With each visit to the site it becomes clearer that the ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System is the simplest whole home control system to buy, install and use.
The site has several new features that directly benefit ELAN dealers such as a complete product catalog that can be searched or downloaded, putting the entire ELAN line in the hands of the dealers right on their smartphones, tablets or laptops. The new photo library includes dozens of professional photos of the g! system components, ELAN Elios speakers, and brand logos for dealers to use in marketing materials and on their own web sites. The site also provides key management contact info for dealers and installers and links to ELAN's Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages for additional videos and up-to-the-minute updates. The g! system's bragging rights are well deserved, and are documented in an up-to-date awards section which details all awards ELAN has received, and a press section containing press releases about cool new installations and uses of the g! system. Dealer and consumer testimonials show visitors that people really love the g! system and are using it to make their lives easier and improve their homes.
