Log Home Tech

The audio/video network is just one cool setup in this beautiful log home. Several wireless access points facilitate Wi-Fi roaming with an iPad or MacBook without dropping a signal. And there’s yet another network for the VoIP (Voice over Internet) 3CX DECT cordless phone system, which includes 13 phones that can all be used as intercoms. It’s a big home, remember. A Cartel driveway sensor embedded below the road to the house detects an approaching vehicle, signals the Elan g! home control system, which sounds music to alert the owners to a visitor. The musical alert is muted from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m.

The network-based Elan g! control system also operates a LiteTouch lighting system, which is comprised of 150 loads of lights and 70 keypads peppered throughout the residence. Together, the LiteTouch and Elan systems can also be used to open and close motorized skylights throughout the house. The owners can tap buttons on Elan touchpanels and LiteTouch keypads to do so; rain sensors can shut the skylights automatically. See more here.
