Enter for a Chance to Win an Apple iPad Mini During the Grand Opening of Silverleaf, Taylor Morrison’s Latest New Home Community in Denver

Denver, CO, February 22, 2013 --(PR.com)-- High-tech, connected home living comes to Broomfield this month as Taylor Morrison Denver unveils its latest new home community, Silverleaf, with a chance to win an Apple iPad Mini.

Also debuting at Silverleaf is Taylor Morrison’s innovative optional Interactive Home™ system, which makes it easy for Denver homebuyers to control multiple devices in their home - such as TVs, lighting, thermostats, door locks and DVRs - with a user interface that’s simple to use, yet flexible enough to harness the most complicated electronic gadgets.

To mark the debut of the Interactive Home™, Taylor Morrison Denver is giving away an Apple iPad Mini valued at approximately $329. From February 23 to March 23, eligible U.S. residents can enter for a chance to win the tech gadget through one of the following five methods:

- Visit Silverleaf and post an Instagram or Twitter photo of a Silverleaf home with the hashtag #interactivehome.

Like any Taylor Morrison Denver Instagram photo marked with #interactivehome

Visit Taylor Morrison Denver’s Twitter page and re-tweet any post with the hashtag #interactivehome

Visit Taylor Morrison Denver’s Facebook page for the “Tweet of the Day” and then re-tweet on Twitter

Visit Taylor Morrison’s Google+ page, find a photo containing the hashtag #interactivehome and “+1” the photo

The contest ends March 23, with the winner announced on Taylor Morrison Denver’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/taylormorrisondenver) on or about March 24.

The contest is only open to legal residents of the United States with a valid Twitter, Instagram or Google+ account and who are at least 18 years old as of the date of the entry. For complete rules, please visit the Taylor Morrison Denver Facebook page located at www.facebook.com/taylormorrisondenver.

Located in the upscale community of Broomfield, Silverleaf by Taylor Morrison features dramatic elevation changes and offers views of the Rocky Mountains including Flatirons and Indian Peaks as well as the Front Range. With seven spacious floor plans, scenic surroundings and the builder’s elegant, connected home solution, the Interactive Home™, it’s easy to see why Denver homebuyers have been anxious for the community to open.

“Denver homebuyers have distinct ideas of where they want to raise their families and cities like Broomfield offer some of the best amenities out there,” said Kip Gilleland, president of Taylor Morrison’s Denver division. “Silverleaf ties all of these amenities together with thoughtful, intelligent floor plans that reflect the way Colorado families live today.”

Starting in the mid-$400,000s, Silverleaf gives Denver homebuyers the choice of two distinct collections of homes.

The Countryside Collection provides five, inspired floor plans that range in size from approximately 2,638 to 3,534 square feet, offering Denver families up to four bedrooms, 2 to 3.5 baths and three-car garages with each home.

The Paragon Collection is even roomier, with up to five bedrooms, 2.5 to 4 baths and homes that range approximately from 3,056 to 3,685 square feet. The single-level Sapphire also offers a three-car garage while the two-story Ruby stretches to a four-car garage.

“These are some of our larger homes in Denver and they’re floor plans that our homebuyers have asked us to design for them,” Gilleland said. “Each home offers something special for Denver families, whether it’s the gourmet kitchens of the Countryside Collection or the optional casitas offered with the Paragon Collection.”

The flexibility of the optional Interactive Home™ means homeowners can monitor the front door of their Taylor Morrison home from a laptop. They can browse movies from their smart phone, then select and start the film from their phone.

The available options and true customization of the Control4 system also allows homebuyers to create connected living experiences that match and reflect their lifestyles.

“The average homebuyer is more connected than ever,” said Kip Gilleland, division president for Taylor Morrison Denver. “But as the number of devices we own increases, the need to have an intelligent interface to control all of them grows. Our Interactive Home™ system allows homeowners to walk through their front door completely in control.”

Even energy efficiency is easy with the Interactive Home™. The Control4 system allows thermostats to be controlled remotely, allowing a homeowner to fine tune their home’s climate from the office or a smart phone.

In addition, controls can be set to illuminate walkways at night, send emails when the garage door is left open - even turn everything off and lock the house with one touch of a button by the bedside.

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

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
