Software gets new UI9 February 2017
A comprehensive new release of the company’s home automation software is being demonstrated by ELAN at ISE 2017. Release 8 adds a new user interface, voice control of all event maps via Amazon Echo, and new integrations with the Denon Heos wireless sound system, DISH and Hayward pool and spa control.
Tom McKeon, Core Brands software product manager, said: “As the connected home market expands, so too does ELAN’s capability to control residential projects of all sizes and complexities. This new software reinforces the fact that ELAN is, and will continue to be, the most intuitive control hub for any smart home.”
The ELAN 8 software includes a new calendar feature that enables the integration of Microsoft Outlook, Google Gmail and Apple iCal into the ELAN calendar module.
It also includes enhanced security functionality with a new video transcoding feature that enables ELAN to pull high bitrate video from popular cameras and door stations, and dynamically transcode those videos in real time. This, says the company, ensures that the video footage delivered to the customer is of the highest quality, and that it is reliably delivered to mobile clients and other touch points.
