ELAN Home Systems announced that its ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System software version 5.4 will support the new international version of Lutron’s HomeWorks QS total home control system.
“ELAN products have been working with Lutron systems for the better part of two decades, and now our integration with the new international HomeWorks QS control system proves that the best just keeps getting better,” said Joe Lautner, ELAN product manager and business development. “Dealers and customers all around the world can now combine the latest in lighting and shading automation from Lutron with the best in home entertainment and control with the ELAN g! system. And it’s the easiest integration in the industry—with one click in the ELAN g! Configurator, all of the loads, keypads and programming from the Lutron system are automatically populated in the g! Configurator.”
Once an integrator installs and programs a Lutron RadioRA 2 or HomeWorks QS System, the ELAN g! system imports the data from the Lutron system. Once imported, the integrator can pick and choose what they want to display on any of the g! user interfaces. ELAN provides templates to match the Lutron in-wall keypads so the integrator can simply drop any keypad onto the g! user interface and it will behave the same way as the Lutron in-wall keypad.
The integrator can then add automation for the lights to turn on and off based on preset schedules or activity-based events such as arming or disarming the security system, motion detection, driveway sensors and more. The g! software also makes it easy to create additional scenes that can be controlled from any g! interface and are unique from the scenes driven by the Lutron in-wall keypads.
The g! software version 5.4 includes enhanced support for Lutron’s Sivoia QS shade control, offering homeowners more control for improved energy management, safety, comfort and convenience. It also integrates Lutron’s new temperature control products.
