ELAN Home Systems Begins Worldwide Delivery of new G! Series Home Control System
In yet another example of how the progress towards the “Connected Home” reality keeps steadily moving forward, Elan Home Systems made a major announcement on January 14th that was covered by our friends over at Home Toys (www.hometoys.com):
CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA — ELAN® Home Systems (www.elanhomesystems.com), the industry leading manufacturer of award-winning IP home control and multi-room A/V distribution systems, today announced that its ELAN g! Series Home Control System is shipping worldwide with built-in multi-language support. The revolutionary IP-Based, whole house entertainment and management solution includes the HR2 handheld remote, TS7 7″ in-wall Touchscreen, HC12 and HC6 controllers, TS2 touchpad and its VL2 tabletop kit, plus g! Mobile iPhone app and new precision panels.
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 that 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.
News like this only serves as evidence of the growing interest in the “Connected Home”, not only here in North America, but in many parts of the world as well! Hopefully with increased positive news like this within the industry, combined with an apparent rise in interest from the public, we will start to see home system integration really take off this year!
