ELAN® Expands g! System with an Electronic Door Lock Integration Solution That Sets A New Standard For The Industry

Furthering its commitment to provide dealers and end-users with simple, powerful tools to customize the g! System, ELAN® Home Systems today announced an electronic door lock integration solution that allows users to makes changes to pass codes and lock schedules right from the g! interface, with no technician required. The announcement was made at CEDIA EXPO 2012 at ELAN’s Booth #902 of the Indiana Convention Center.

“Integrating door locks is a very risky proposition because of the security aspects, so we take it very seriously,” said Robert Ridenour, ELAN Brand Manager. “We’ve given homeowners more options to monitor and protect their homes through user-specific pass codes, email and text message alerts, the industry’s most accessible door lock history function, and the ability to easily and quickly manage user codes from within the g! interface.  And we’ve partnered with the biggest electronic lock manufacturers to give dealers and homeowners the widest range of styles possible.

With a re-imagined door lock interface that is displayed in conjunction with the home’s security system information, ELAN has surpassed other control manufacturers and given homeowners the easiest-to-use door lock integration of any control system.  That means that they can view and check their security system and change door locks’ status all from one screen on any g! interface device, including iPhones, iPads and Android® smartphones. Also unique to the g! interface is the ability to secure all locks at once without complicated dealer programming. 

ELAN has created the industry’s most accessible history function for door locks so users can view a simple table with events for each lock, including when and how a door was locked as well as which user unlocked a door.  Dealers can also configure the g! system to send outbound alerts through text or email to the homeowner, giving them instant notification when a lock jams or has a low battery, or when a lock is opened in their home.

"The integration of Yale Real Living locks into ELAN's g! system increases the functionality of our locks exponentially," said Jason Williams, General Manager of Yale Residential.  "This new relationship fits perfectly with our plan to partner with companies whose products can significantly enhance the value of our locks."

The new Yale Real Living deadbolt and lever locks are the first products in the Yale Real Living™ portfolio of residential access control and home security solutions.  Available with either a sleek capacitive touchscreen or pushbutton keypad, these locks allow users to create personalized events or scenes triggered by the push of a button from anywhere in the home or remotely via the Internet.

When integrated with the ELAN g! System and g!Mobile app, electronic locks have the ability to communicate wirelessly with other “smart” devices in the home, such as lighting controls, thermostats and home security, making home control and personalization accessible to the average homeowner. Whether on a business trip 10,000 miles away or stuck at work when their kids get home, homeowners benefit from added convenience and peace of mind.

“According to recent research, homeowners have stated they are now looking increasingly at door locks to provide more convenience in their home automation systems,” said Larry Goldman, North American sales and business development manager of Kwikset. “Because of this enhanced desire, the popularity of Z-Wave accessories is growing steadily, especially in home security.”

The ELAN g! system is simple to use from anywhere in the world, so homeowners can easily set a temporary pass code for a maid, repairman, or so a neighbor can feed the dog while the owner is on vacation.  With ELAN’s new management feature, homeowners can also decide which locks always require a passcode from g! user interfaces, further enhancing security.

ELAN g! currently integrates electronic door locks from the Kwikset and Baldwin brands of Stanley Black & Decker, as well as Yale’s Real Living series.

I used to be an alarm install technician. And while I know nothing about industry lobbying, I do know that almost all consumer model alarm systems have a verification system. When the alarm goes off, the monitoring company calls your home and can listen in on the panel. They ask you your secret pass-phrase and/or verify your identity. If there is nothing or no noise, then the police are called.
And, motion sensors are pet-friendly and can distinguish between your dog and a person pretty easily- unless your dog weighs over 100 pounds.
