At Elliott Homes, we are always committed to furthering our innovations and services within our entire homebuilding process—and we make it our mission to keep up with the latest technological advancements to incorporate into every home that we build. Smart home technology is being utilized more and more within homes, and its many features and capabilities can protect your home, property, and loved ones—as well as increase energy savings and maximize convenience. With our new Sutter at Rio Del Oro and Placer at Rio Del Oro communities opening soon, we wanted to highlight their all-new, state-of-the-art smart home package—so continue reading to find out more about our forward-thinking technology at Elliott Homes.

Advanced hubs 

All of our homes in the new Rio Del Oro communities are built with an incredible smart home system from Brilliant—a leading design and manufacturing company that produces innovative technology for homes. The advancement of smart home technology has revolutionized households, making it easy to see and control your home’s systems and appliances from a convenient smartphone application. Monitor and adjust an array of smart technology features in your Elliott home through your Brilliant hub—from lighting and temperature to door locks and alarm systems. Our smart home management hubs through Brilliant come standard with each new build in our Rio Del Oro communities, which help keep all of your smart home devices and systems connected and on the right track—even when you aren’t at home. 

Security and alarm 

Elliott Homes is ready to go above and beyond to provide peace of mind to our homeowners, which is exactly why we’ve included cutting-edge technology for your reassurance and comfort. Our Brilliant Smart Home System integrates with the highly-accredited Resideo ProSeries Security Package for a comprehensive and unified security system, which also includes control over the Honeywell Home smart thermostats—all under one roof. Keep a close eye on your front door with our Ring Pro video doorbell, lock and unlock your doors from anywhere with our Kwikset Halo Wi-Fi-controlled front door lock—and rest assured knowing that your Elliott home is safe and monitored at all times with our Resideo wireless alarm system. To ensure the utmost safety, see who’s coming and going from the comfort of your smartphone using the Brilliant app. With these included functionalities, you can always keep an eye on your home, even from miles away.

Futuristic systems 

When builders invest in smart home technology, the systems aren’t always the top priority compared to safety—but our team strives to simplify your life by seamlessly combining security with convenience. Our Brilliant technology turns regular lights into smart lights that can be controlled via touch, voice, motion, or through the all-in-one app—and the sleek 2-switch panel features a touchscreen controller that installs in place of a light switch panel. In addition, you can control your home through your voice using Amazon Alexa—and you can check in on your home from anywhere using the built-in camera that is included in the panel, or you can turn it off through the app. For the families with little ones, rest assured with Brilliant’s advanced child-lock features, ensuring that your children have limited access on your control panel and your home is secure at all times. Plus, with our eero Pro Mesh Wi-Fi system included, distribution and consistency of Wi-Fi strength are never compromised—guaranteeing that the Brilliant technology will function to its full potential at all times. 

Temperature control

Smart home technology can also help you save money. Our Wi-Fi-enabled Honeywell Home by Resideo T10 thermostats can be controlled either manually or through the Brilliant app, which you can adjust to your liking. After adjusting the heating and cooling cycles, your smart thermostat will learn your temperature preferences based on time of day and year, and will automatically adjust them to prevent wasted energy—and save money on utility bills.

For convenience, safety, security and comfort, Elliott Homes is thinking smart when it comes to building your home.

Our Brilliant smart home technology is extremely user-friendly, and our homeowners can add as many additional systems or functionalities as needed once settled into their new homes.
