Making Home Tech Affordable

Share Article

Elkins Technologies of Aurora, Illinois announces itÂ?s new partnership with Home Logic of Marblehead, MA, manufacturer of Home Automation products.

“Home Automation is gaining popularity in the area.” says Elkins Technologies president Mark Elkins, “but many times it is either poorly done or unaffordable for most local homeowners. Our partnership with Home Logic allows us to provide owners and builders of lower cost homes with a level of automation and convenience normally found only in multimillion dollar homes. The product fits well in homes starting at $350,000.”

The heart of the Home Logic system is a Windows XP based controller called the Home Brick. The Home Brick can control the security system, HVAC, lighting, irrigation, pool equipment, music and video, or anything else in the home. It even comes with a built in MP3 server and can access Internet radio. All the features can be accessed from a wall mount or wireless touch screen, a pocket PC, or any computer on your home LAN. It can also be accessed via the Internet. “Access is completely secure.” says Elkins “The owner can easily verify security, since all access to the system is logged.”

The Home Logic system has won a number of awards and recognitions. These include High Impact Product of the Year from TecHome and CEPro magazines, and Product of the Year from Electronic House.

Elkins Technologies offers a full lineup of home and business automation and communication products, including home theater, phones, security and networking.
