Nortek Control has released an extensive assortment of new integration drivers for ELAN whole-house control solutions. The new drivers continue to expand ELAN system capabilities for dealers who are delivering premium-level home and business entertainment, security and control systems.
The broad array of new drivers demonstrates the results of an ongoing program of close support and collaboration between the company‘s engineers and third-party integration developers.
“We are excited to take this program to the next level in 2021 as we continue to work across product sectors, other manufacturers and developers to ensure ideal integration between ELAN products and other distinguished brands,” said Richard Pugnier, vice president of marketing at Nortek Control. “This allows us to approve, track and share drivers that have been developed by our company as well as third-party companies and to further support our dealers in bringing compelling solutions to their customers.”
Larry Cramp, director of the Nortek Control ELAN Integration Program, added that this is an important, ever evolving program that responds to the needs of the market. “As such, Dealers and third-party vendors and developers will receive quarterly updates and will be able to soon access a complete list of drivers in the unique ELAN Management Cloud,” he said.
