Press Release

PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA – Leading smart home automation brand ELAN today announced that Pacific Gate by Bosa, the tallest condominium building project in San Diego, California, will include an Nice/ELAN home automation system in all 215 of its luxury condominiums. Nice/ELAN is partnering with local systems integration firm American Home Entertainment to make intuitive and simple-to-use home automation available to all homebuyers, according to Core Brands Director of Builder Sales Bret Jacob.

“The incorporation of the Nice/ELAN automation platform into every unit in the Pacific Gate luxury development project shows the strength of the Nice/ELAN platform,” Jacob emphasized. “Thanks to our partnership with Ron and his team at American Home Entertainment, all 215 condominiums will come equipped with a basic Nice/ELAN package that controls lighting, climate and shades. Upgrade packages will be made available to each homebuyer to enable them to design a home automation solution that meets their individual lifestyle needs.”Pacific Gate

According to American Home Entertainment General Manager Ron Roberge, the Pacific Gate development is the latest in a series of successful projects the integration firm has completed for Bosa. “We’ve worked with Bosa on eight or nine projects that date back nearly 15 years,” Roberge explained. “We’ve built a solid relationship that is now being extended to San Diego’s most exciting smart home residential development to date, and we are proud to partner with Nice/ELAN to make it a reality for homebuyers who are looking for a simple way to access all of the benefits of a smart home automation system.”

According to Roberge, Bosa selected the Nice/ELAN system for Pacific Gate after conducting side by side comparisons with other leading control systems. “Together with Nice/ELAN, we demonstrated the clear advantages of the Nice/ELAN system and the choice became an easy one for the Bosa team to make,” he said. “The fact that the Nice/ELAN interface was named the 2017 Human Interface of the year by the Consumer Technology Association really helped to make our case.”

The project illustrates opportunities created by the Nice/ELAN New Home Program, in which Nice/ELAN partners with local system integration firms in offering builders and developers a complete range of benefits including aggressively priced and powerfully featured base packages, outstanding direct manufacturer support and project oversight, and industry-leading model home and incentive programs. The program’s benefits to homebuyers are equally strong, led by the award-winning and easiest to learn and use Nice/ELAN system which is easily personalized for each individual buyer.
