ELAN Home Systems has announced that it will showcase its “killer combo” control solution at CEDIA 2011 in Booth #3325.
ELAN’s Killer Combo can start as a single-room solution and is expandable to control a full house or apartment.
The Killer Combo can start as a single-room solution and expand to control the entire house or apartment. The package combines ELAN’s award-winning HR2 multimedia-and-home-control remote with the new HC4 four sub-system Home Controller into one packaged solution that carries a suggested retail price of $1860.
According to ELAN president Paul Starkey, “This new, affordable control package promises to make home automation and control a reality for every homeowner, whether they integrate a single room or the whole house. By pairing our groundbreaking HR2 remote with the HC4 Home Controller, we have created a killer combo that makes selling home control easier than ever for dealers and installers.”
“By removing the cost barrier,” said Starkey, “we hope to give a lot of homeowners their first taste of home control and automation. And what’s great about the ELAN g! System is that when they decide they want to control more than one room, g! is easy to expand and ready to provide complete home automation.”
The ELAN HR2, the company’s first ever remote, features the ELAN g! engine and hybrid use of backlit buttons and a 2.4-inch OLED touch screen. This provides all the function of hard buttons and a touch screen packaged in a remote that weighs only 8 ounces. Nearly a year of development went into the remote’s shape and button layout, according to ELAN.
The HC4 Home Controller comes standard with the capability for MP3 and Internet Radio Streaming, a new and improved iTunes feature that allows for integration of an iTunes library, 720p video for a g! On Screen Display control interface, climate control, lighting, security, IP cameras, phone integration/messaging, email, Text-To-Speech and screen-saver photo albums. As an IP-based system, it also supports iPod, iPhone and iPad control through the g!Mobile app, which enables full system control from anywhere in the world.
