ELAN 8.6 Software and new ELAN System Controllers from Nortek Control can now deliver the ideally matched control solution for every smart home automation scenario – from a single room media system to a sprawling luxury estate or commercial venue with multiple buildings. And now, the ELAN System is more flexible than ever with the addition of Z-Wave to control compatible devices.
The newly updated ELAN 8.6 Software brings native Z-Wave Plus support to all ELAN EL-SC System Controllers, including new models announced today and detailed below. Easy discovery and installation of all Z-Wave devices can be accomplished via ELAN Viewer app on mobile devices.
ELAN 8.6 Software Adds Alexa International and Lutron QSX Integration
Major enhancements ushered in by the ELAN 8.6 Software include Alexa International capability, Lutron QSX integration and more. Auto-generated Lighting and Shades pages can be grouped with ease. New viewer-based scene editor allows for users to customize scenes. In addition to lighting enhancements, the ELAN 8.6 Software enables mobile export of surveillance video clips from ELAN NVR on iOS and Android smart devices.
“We’re extremely excited to announce that we are taking the connected home to a whole new level. With the combination of the power-packed ELAN 8.6 Software and our strong family of individual IP-based ELAN System Controllers, we are delivering elevated control, flexibility and efficiency to suit any smart home project,” said Richard Pugnier, VP of marketing at Nortek Control. “Each piece is designed to accommodate different sized installations, offering easy choices for deployment and virtually unlimited future expansion.”
For Massive Projects
The just-announced family of ELAN hardware includes several options, is IP-enabled for integration, and can expand via external I/O options and software licenses. Leading with the new flagship ELAN EL-SC-300-ZW System Controller, large to massive projects can be more easily addressed.
Homeowners can control media, lighting, climate, pool/spa, irrigation, doorbell cameras, and security through a single app interface. Compatible with other ELAN devices and many third-party products, an included Z-Wave transceiver also enables control of compatible Z-Wave devices.
For More Moderate Installations
For smaller to moderate installations the ELAN EL-SC-100-ZW System Controller provides a single point of control and automation for media, climate, lighting, security, and surveillance. It includes an integrated Z-Wave transceiver, which eliminates the need to add third-party hardware to control Z-Wave devices.
The new ELAN EL-IO-200 IO Extender extends control to additional media and smart-home devices not placed near the main controller. Paired with an EL-SC-100-ZW, EL-SC-300-ZW, or a gSC Series Controller it can enable systems to expand to meet growing needs. Sized for easy installation, this extender can fit in the smallest spaces.
The new ELAN EL-SC-200-ZW bundles the new EL-SC-100-ZW System Controller with the EL-IO-200 Control Extender and ties it all together with an EL-SW-100-PRO license to provide control and automation for all popular categories.
The new ELAN 8.6 Software and series of ELAN System Controllers is just one part of the new lineup of products promised by Nortek Control for 2021. Pricing and availability will be announced soon.
