Home automation

From the architectural character and layout at Twisel Brae to the stunning visual aesthetics, great design sets these homes apart from anything that’s been seen before in Northern Ireland.

The developer’s technological expertise brings this unique package to life in ways you never dreamed possible, using home automation. Imagine one remote for everything; no bulky audio-visual equipment and trailing wires. Visualize smart illumination that knows when you need bright task lighting or a soft ambient glow. Feel the warmth of super-efficient intelligent home heating. Relax as automated security gives you peace of mind both at home and away.

Available as an optional extra, home automation at Twisel Brae can be tailored to your individual specifications, whether you choose to simply pre-wire, or invest in a complete smart home design including everything from door locks and window blinds to underfloor heating and alarms.

ELAN technology gives you one-touch convenience for smart home control and automation. The intuitive interface is easy to understand and simple to use by family members of all ages. ELAN is also completely scalable to meet your needs, making future additions to the system quick, cost-efficient and non-disruptive.
