Nortek Control introduces new ELAN system controllers & software

Nortek Control has launched a complete, integrated set of System Controllers for ELAN control solutions, focusing on project flexibility.

Designed for various home automation scenarios from single room media system installs to luxury estates, or a commercial venue with multiple buildings, ELAN products are driven by the new ELAN 8.6 Software to deliver suitable control solutions.

The updated ELAN 8.6 Software brings even more flexibility to control compatible devices with the introduction of native Z-Wave Plus support to all ELAN EL-SC System Controllers, including the new models being announced. Z-Wave devices can now be easily discovered and installed via the ELAN Viewer app on mobile devices.

Other enhancements brought to the table by the software update includes Alexa International capability and Lutron QSX integration. Users can easily group auto-generated lighting and shades pages, and a new viewer-based scene editor allows users to customise their scenes. The updated software also enables mobile export of surveillance video clips from ELAN NVR on iOS or Android smart devices.

The new family of ELAN hardware are IP-enabled for integration and can expand via external I/O options and software licenses.

Addressing the biggest projects, the new flagship ELAN EL-SC-300-ZW System Controller provides the ultimate flexibility for a home and system of almost any size by bringing together all the intelligent devices in the system and allows them to work together in one seamless system. With the flagship controller, homeowners can control their media, lighting, climate, pool/spa, irrigation, doorbell cameras, security and more through a single interface. It is compatible with other ELAN devices as well as many third-part products. It also includes a Z-Wave transceiver to enable the control of compatible Z-Wave devices.

The new ELAN EL-SC-100-ZW System Controller, designed for smaller to moderate installations, provides a single point of control and automation for media, climate, lighting, security, surveillance, and more. It also includes the Z-Wave transceiver, eliminating the need to add third-party hardware to control compatible devices.

The new ELAN EL-IO-200 IO Extender allows control to be extended to additionally media and smart home devices which are not near the main controller. To futureproof the system, it can be paired with an EL-SC-100-ZW, EL-SC-300-ZW, or a gSC Series Controller to enable systems to expand to meet growing needs. To fit almost anywhere, the extender has a very small footprint for easy installation.

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 together with an EL-SW-100-PRO license to seamlessly provide control and automation for all popular categories.

“We’re extremely excited to announce that we are taking the connected home to a whole new level,” said Richard Pugnier, vice president of marketing at Nortek Control. “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.

“Each piece is designed to accommodate different sized installations, offering easy choices for deployment and virtually unlimited future expansion,” he continued. “Homeowners and integrators alike will benefit as they can use the controller that’s perfectly suited to their needs while being able to grow seamlessly with our hardware options.”

Pricing and availability will be announced by Nortek Control soon.
