If you watch the TLC show The Cake Boss, you know how they do it in Hoboken. But at home, the Boss Buddy Valastro wants to relax a bit and let his home control system do some of the work for him.
Valastro recently had a ELAN g! home control system installed by 360 Media Innovations. The ELAN system, which cost about $97,000, integrates many of the home’s subsystems, including audio/video entertainment, lighting, security and climate. Through a variety of interface devices, including Buddy’s numerous iPads and wall-mounted touchpanels, the family can access whole house music, check the security system, control lights and even view family photos from a central server.
