Capping a three-month period that has seen record orders for its ELAN g! Series System, ELAN Home Systems today announced that its revolutionary IP-based home control system has received the Platinum Level 2011 Mark Of Excellence Award by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) in the category of “Best Control System”. The announcement and presentation of the award was made at the Spring 2011 EHX Show in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center.
“The ELAN g! Home Control System changes everything, and for the better,” said Paul Starkey, President of ELAN Home Systems. “It is easy to sell, demonstrate, and install, and it’s equally easy for customers to enjoy, maintain and upgrade in the future. In our opinion, ELAN g! is the most intuitive, modular, and cost-effective way for customers to realize the full benefits of whole home automation.”
The Mark of Excellence Awards program, presented by CEA's TechHome Division, recognizes the best in home electronics products, services, and installed technology. Each year manufacturers, distributors, and systems integrators enter to compete in award categories for this coveted honor judged by independent experts within the industry.
The ELAN g! Series Home Control System provides users with the most uniform and intuitive icon-based control from their favorite devices, including TVs, touchscreens, touchpads, PCs , iPhones, and iPads. The standardized interface works across platforms, so that the trendy g!Mobile app users love on the iPhone appears and works similarly on ELAN touchscreens, valets and handheld remotes as well as users' televisions and mobile devices. And the system's IP backbone makes it just as easy to control the system from across the room - or across the globe.
Individual "apps" for each subsystem allow the user to control security, climate, lighting, media, irrigation, pool/spa, messaging, video and photos with the flick of a finger. Access is fast and secure through any ELAN home interface or globally with mobile Internet enabled devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Netbooks, and PC Tablets. Since the intuitive interface empowers users with personalized scheduling and detailed history views, high consumption subsystems like lighting and climate can be closely monitored and managed for a greener lifestyle - and substantial energy savings.
