With regard to the specific features introduced today CORE Brands Director of the Control Segment Joe Lautner stressed that, "We are taking the g! System to new heights by introducing ELAN's Android app, which adds to our Apple iOS app to offer users full mobile control from nearly every smartphone and tablet available today! With a user interface that is second to none, hardware components that feature attractive industrial design and premium build materials, and the power and expandability of our HC Home Controllers, the g! System is the most scalable and capable control system in its class."
Enhancing the security/access functions of the g! System, ELAN introduces the comprehensive door locks integration. Once a certified ELAN dealer sets up the system, end-users have the ability to easily control locks from home and while away, create convenient lock groups, and set their own user pass codes. This way g! owners can manage the door locks and security for their entire home or business without consulting a technician to make changes.
ELAN g! also provides owners with a detailed history of the door locks that includes time of entry, door location, and whose pass code was used. The easy-to-use door locks interface shows up under the security tab right alongside the standard security features, so it is simple to view and access. Owners can set unique pass codes for each user, and even set new/temporary pass codes for a maid, repairman, or visiting relative.
Finally, ELAN has added more than 30 new third-party, two way drivers, expanding the system's support for new products in HDMI video switching, security cameras, climate systems, lighting, audio receivers
and sources, security and connectivity devices. With these new drivers dealers can now integrate many of the latest products from brands such as 2 Gig, Atlona, Axis, Baldwin, Denon, Geffen, Honeywell, Panasonic, Panamax/Furman, Pioneer, KwikSet, Rako Snap AV, Trane, Vantage, Vivotek, Xantech, Yale, Yamaha and more.
