ELAN Home Systems has introduced a “killer combo” control solution that the company says can start as a single-room solution and expand to control the entire house or apartment.
ELAN’s HR2 multimedia-and-home-control remote with the new HC4 four sub-system Home Controller.
The package combines ELAN’s 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. The system is available for immediate delivery to dealers.
“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,” said ELAN president, Paul Starkey. “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.
The HC4 Home Controller comes standard with the capability for MP3 and internet radio streaming, a new iTunes feature that allows for simple 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.
