Switzerland's Most Exclusive New Residential Community To Feature ELAN g! Entertainment & Control Systems

In Switzerland’s newest, most expensive apartments, which start at $28,000 (USD) per square foot, buyers can be sure that every room of each residence includes the very best materials and latest cutting-edge technology.  That’s why Rainford Property Developers and the award-winning Swiss architecture firm Cittolin Polli have announced a partnership with HomeTech Europe and C+O Architectes en Domotique to equip every one of these magnificent homes at Les Voiles du Léman with the world’s easiest-to-use total home control system, ELAN® g!  
Now breaking ground on the shore of beautiful Lake Geneva, the Les Voiles du Léman apartments will each be outfitted with an ELAN g! system to control the Lutron lighting and motorized windows shades, heating, air conditioning, security and intercom system.  What’s more, the owners can expand their g! system to integrate multi-room audio, multi-room HD video, surveillance cameras and pool/spa controls.

Each of the six apartments, which feature 1,350-4,000 square feet of living space, have their own balcony or sun deck, spa, finished basement and offer breathtaking views of Lake Geneva on one side and the Swiss Alps on the other.  Two of the units even have private swimming pools and 2,000-3,000 square feet of private gardens.

According to Patrick Polli of Rainford, “Les Voiles du Léman is a dream community, a collection of the greatest architecture, design, materials and technology the world has to offer. To own an apartment at Les Voiles du Léman is a statement in and of itself, that the owner spares no expense to be surrounded by the best of the best.  It offers views of two of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, Lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps, complemented with state-of-the-art technology that will even let the owners take in the views through high definition surveillance cameras when they are halfway around the world.  Technology is one of the most important things in people’s lives today, so in these residences, and in many Rainford will design and build in the future, integrated entertainment and control systems will become a standard feature that we offer.”

“Starting at $28,000 per square foot,” said Jim Beaumont, Director at HomeTech Europe, “Les Voiles du Léman promises to be Switzerland’s most exclusive community where buyers are treated to the very best, from construction and design to appliances and modern technologies. The people who buy these homes expect and will receive the very best in every category. And when it comes to entertainment and control, the ELAN g! system was the logical choice. 

“It is hands-down the easiest system to install, the easiest to maintain and update, and absolutely the easiest for the owners to use and enjoy. When it comes to these buyers the word ‘operate’ need not apply—the word ‘enjoy’ is all that’s required.  With one simple interface that is the same on every control device, whether it’s an in-wall touch panel or an iPad, ELAN g! gives owners a powerful, easy-to-use home control experience.”

Les Voiles du Léman was originally planned to be seven apartments, until one enterprising buyer combined two of the spaces into the largest and most technologically advanced of them all.  It will utilize every feature of the ELAN g! system, save for the irrigation function.  He’ll be able to control his 7.1 surround sound theater, multi-room HD video, multi-room audio with iPod docks and satellite radio, surveillance cameras and pool/spa controls right from his iPads, several in-wall touch screens located throughout the living space, and several HR2 handheld remotes designated for specific TVs and media centers.

Currently, most of the six apartments have sold, and Cittoni Polli expects to have buyers for the remaining units soon. The project is underway and will be in construction through summer 2013.  For more information visit www.les-voiles-du-leman.ch.

The ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System provides users with the most uniform and intuitive icon-based control from their favorite devices including TVs, touchscreens, touchpads, PCs, iPhones and iPads. The standardized interface works across platforms, so that the trendy g!Mobile app users love on the iPhone appears and works similarly on ELAN touchscreens, valets and handheld remotes as well as users’ televisions and mobile devices. And the system’s IP backbone makes it just as easy to control the system from across the room – or across the globe.
Individual apps for each subsystem allow the user to control security, climate, lighting, media, irrigation, pool/spa, messaging, video and photos with the flick of a finger. Access is fast and secure through any ELAN home interface or globally with mobile Internet enabled devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and notebooks. Since the intuitive interface empowers users with personalized scheduling and detailed history views, high consumption subsystems like lighting and climate can be closely monitored and managed for a greener lifestyle – and substantial energy savings.
