ELAN Brings 21st Century Control to Jersey City High Rise
Just across the Hudson River from downtown Manhattan, a renaissance is sweeping through Jersey City. As residents continue to flock to New Jersey’s fastest growing city, real estate developers are doing everything they can to differentiate their apartment buildings as fashionable living centers for people of all ages. According to Casey S. Johnston, President of technology integration firm Serious Audio Video, the owners of the new Cast Iron Lofts recognized how important it is to provide residents with a strong sense of community and security. That’s why they hired his company to install an advanced ELAN Entertainment & Control System with audio, video, lighting and security to create an unmatched 21st-century living experience.
“Each of the building’s sub-systems in all four community areas is managed through a single ELAN gSC10 Controller and an ELAN S1616A Multi-Zone Audio Controller,” Johnston explained. “Anchored by ELAN, we were able to install an extensive AV system that creates a true sense of community within the building’s common areas.”
Using the latest technologies, Serious Audio Video set out to give residents peace-of-mind by equipping the common spaces with security cameras and electronic locks that can only be opened through biometric thumb print scanners or a key fob. Once in the common areas, the entertainment begins with the ELAN system.
