New ELAN Smart Home Control Software Named “Human Interface Product of the Year” at CES 2017

PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA, January 11, 2017 – At CES 2017, the promise of the truly integrated home of the future became a reality when ELAN introduced the latest generation of its award-winning smart home entertainment and control system. ELAN’s strength has always been ease of use, reliability and performance. The new ELAN 8 enhances the intuitive interface and adds voice control through Amazon Alexa, plus powerful new user managed features. These advances were recognized at CES 2017 when ELAN 8 was awarded with the “2017 Human Interface Product of the Year” award from the Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) Mark of Excellence Award Program Committee. The award was presented on Friday, January 6, 2017.

The new ELAN 8

“The smart home just got smarter,” said Joe Robert, President of Core Brands, the parent company of ELAN. “With ELAN 8, homeowners can integrate all of their individual ‘smart’ devices and subsystems, and control them through the intuitive and elegant ELAN interface that anyone can learn in minutes. ELAN 8 represents the very best blend of robust and reliable custom installation technology that can be easily personalized, leveraging the new generation of IoT devices and appliances. We are thrilled to be honored with a CTA Mark of Excellence award.”

The ELAN 8 software eliminates the need to have multiple apps and control switches for managing lighting, security, audio, video and other aspects of the connected home. All these components can now be controlled by the intuitive ELAN system. In addition to integrating with Nest, Lutron, DISH and other popular subsystems, ELAN enables voice control through Amazon Alexa to access its common control functions.

AV Technology Announces 2016 InfoComm Best of Show Winners

NewBay Media’s industry-leading brand for AV and IT managers and users, AV Technology, has announced the new products deemed Best of Show at InfoComm 2016 which convenes today in Las Vegas, NV. InfoComm is one of the largest pro-AV and systems integration trade event in the world. InfoComm International officials report that this show is on track to break records over last year’s event in which 39,000 people attended and more than 950 companies exhibited.

AV Technology's Best of Show Awards were designed to recognize new and outstanding products exhibited at InfoComm 2016 that solve meaningful problems for tech managers. Products are nominated by the manufacturers, and the brand editor assembled a team of five AV experts, most with CTS/CTS-I certifications, to judge the entries anonymously on site, in real time.

“The 2016 Best of Show Winners were recognized because they truly solve problems rather than create them," stated Margot Douaihy, editorial director of AV Technology. "There are literally thousands of new products on display at InfoComm, by more than 900 manufacturers, but the Best of Show winners stand apart. They address critical issues faced by our readers on a daily basis, such as image and sound quality, control, usability, access, networking, design flexibility, and AV management. Our five expert judges evaluated each product on the show floor based on the proposed value proposition/ROI, richness and relevance of the feature set, perceived ease of installation, ease of management, and user friendliness. Ultimately, what separated these products from other solid solutions is that they have a special appeal for AV technology managers and IT directors in increasingly collaborative AV/IT environments. Our community wants to collaborate more efficiently and expediently, and these products help them do that. Congratulations to all the winners.” All finalists and winners will be featured in a special post-show eBook produced by NewBay Media.

Elan home automation system installed to prevent another catastrophe

The 2013 Alberta flood was a catastrophic event, causing more than $5 billion worth of damage to the region; many say that it was the worst flood in Alberta’s history. The incident left countless homes devastated. After one Calgary resident assessed his home’s extreme water damage, he chose to rebuild, turning to local technology integration firm K&M Systems to reconstruct his home automation system around a new Elan controller.
