TAGS: Elan | Smart Home Automation
One of the biggest advantages of installing smart home automation in your Westerly-area home is that you can decrease clutter—including apps, cords, wires, AV equipment, and remotes. Littering your coffee table with remotes from the Blu-ray player to the cable box to the television itself is not only an eyesore in your home, but it can be confusing for your family and friends when they want to enjoy a show in your media room or home theater. Perhaps you also have a few more remotes lying around the house to control your shades, lights, and other smart devices.

A remote from ELAN will help you get organized and also simplify your home theater controls. Read this article to learn more.
