Scottsdale, AZ, September 21, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Taylor Morrison is introducing connected living technology to Arizona homebuyers with the debut of the Interactive Home™.

The Interactive Home™ system – which incorporates a variety of connected home solutions including innovative Legrand products – offers many options including a front door video monitoring system, LCD command center, whole house audio system (with more than 70,000 internet stations and iTunes integration), Selective Call Intercom and camera monitoring.

The available options and true customization of the system allow homebuyers to create connected living experiences that match and reflect their lifestyles.
“From iPhones to tablets PCs, the average homebuyer is more connected than ever,” said Pierette Tierney, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Taylor Morrison Arizona. “But more times than not, that connectivity ends when a person arrives home. Their devices don’t talk to one another and their home sits as an island among this technology.”

The Interactive Home™ solves this problem. The simplicity, safety and elegance of connected home automation allows homeowners to take control of their lives.

“With our system, Mom can leave a message for the kids on the Selective Call Intercom that she’ll be home late, reminding them to do their homework,” Tierney said. “Dad can check in from the office using the video monitoring system. And everyone can listen to their own music preferences using the whole house audio system.”

Taylor Morrison CEO and President Sheryl Palmer said the company has been working to integrate home automation into its product lines for some time now and pointed to how real world technology is now making the ideas Taylor Morrison helped introduce with the Innoventions Dream Home exhibit located in Disneyland® Park a reality for today’s homebuyers.

“Smartphones, tablet PCs and the increased capabilities of the Internet started these conversations with our homebuyers and we responded with the Interactive Home™ system,” Palmer said.

The flexibility of the Interactive Home means homeowners can monitor the front door of their Taylor Morrison home from a TV or from the included LCD Command Center. The home audio system draws from digitally-stored music on a PC or from iTunes to fill the home with their favorite musical sounds.

The industry-leading Selective Call Intercom system provides a hands-free way to communicate between rooms and even includes voice messaging, broadcasting capabilities and room monitoring. For added security, up to six cameras can be added to the Interactive Home™ system, ensuring peace of mind for every homebuyer.

“Homebuyers have been waiting for their devices and homes to merge and provide the level of connectivity that has been promised for so long,” Tierney said. “With the Interactive Home™ system, that day has finally arrived.”
