Nortek Control Releases New ELAN Network Video Recorder

Software-based recording solution for ELAN surveillance systems is tailored to mid-market and smaller installations.

Nortek Control has launched a new ELAN 4-Channel Onboard Network Video Recorder (NVR), a software-based recording solution for ELAN surveillance systems that is tailored to mid-market and smaller installations, expanding offerings for custom integrators, builders and homeowners. The new software maximizes existing hardware and camera installations, making implementation of advanced surveillance features better and faster. Installers download the software license to an ELAN SC-100 or SC-300 System Controller, and the user interface provides full, native control. The new ELAN 4-Channel Onboard NVR (model EL-SW-NVR) also offers timeline and event-based recording with playback that can be filtered by motion, people, vehicles, and custom events.

ELAN NVR - Smart Security

Highlights of the ELAN 4-Channel Onboard NVR include faster installation, setup, and operation; 24/7 remote access and control via the ELAN mobile app; full control of video recording, playback, and clip export via the system’s interface; and, when used with ELAN surveillance cameras, includes video analytics and customized event tracking. When used with ELAN cameras, it delivers the entire new feature implementation, but the ELAN EL-SW-NVR software will also operate with any ONVIF-compliant camera. Because the NVR records locally, this solution also provides privacy and security for homeowners.

Of particular note is the new custom event marking capability of the ELAN 4-Channel Onboard NVR, which provides easier-than-ever navigation and viewing for homeowners. For example, if a door is opened or a light is turned on, an event map can insert a custom-colored mark and message on the timeline when that event occurred. The homeowner can then navigate to that event mark and instantly see the corresponding video footage for complete security data capture and peace of mind.

The new ELAN EL-SW-NVR 4-Channel Onboard Network Video Recorder complements other ELAN products released this year that together offer custom integrators a broader portfolio of compelling solutions for their clients and the builder community. Both the ELAN NVR and its software update are now available. Contact your regional sales manager for training material and marketing collateral.
