Collaboration with leading industry manufacturers and developer partners assures optimum compatibility between ELAN control systems and brands across many categories.
CARLSBAD, CALIF., March 30, 2021 — Kicking off spring integration news in a big way, Nortek Control today announced the release of an extensive assortment of new integration drivers for ELAN® whole-house control solutions. The new drivers continue to expand ELAN system capabilities for dealers who are delivering premium-level home and business entertainment, security and control systems. The broad array of new drivers demonstrates the results of an ongoing program of close support and collaboration between Nortek Control engineers and third-party integration developers.
“We are excited to take this program to the next level in 2021 as we continue to work across product sectors, other manufacturers and developers to ensure ideal integration between ELAN products and other distinguished brands,” said Richard Pugnier, Vice President of Marketing at Nortek Control. “This allows us to approve, track and share drivers that have been developed by our company as well as third-party companies and to further support our dealers in bringing compelling solutions to their customers.”
“This is an important, ever evolving program that responds to the needs of the market.” added Larry Cramp, Manager of the Nortek Control ELAN Integration Program. “As such, Dealers and third-party vendors and developers will receive quarterly updates and will be able to soon access the wide variety of drivers directly through ELAN Management Cloud.”
Through the efforts of Nortek Control, other vendors and third-party developers, the following new drivers are now available. Complete product models and details are available via the ELAN Dealer Portal.
One of the most requested drivers was for the Somfy TaHoma Gateway Hub. Brittany Mier y Terán, Partnership and CI Channel Manager at Somfy, added, “The development experience between Control Concepts and Somfy to enable the ELAN driver was extremely positive. We were in constant communication to create a thoughtful, well-designed integration that will provide real value to the market.”
The Nortek Control Development team is in progress on several additional integration drivers with prominent Security, Lighting and Irrigation manufacturers that are expected to be announced within the next quarter.
The Nortek Control Third-Party Partner Program encompasses ELAN product developer, third-party vendor and third-party developer software that allows for integration between ELAN products and other products and software on the market. Nortek Control does not certify all integration solutions, and no further relationship is expressed or implied.
The award-winning ELAN® whole-house entertainment and control solutions, by Nortek Control, are distributed through a comprehensive channel of select dealers throughout the United States, Canada, and countries worldwide. The ELAN 8 update was honored with the “2017 Human Interface Product of the Year” award, and continues to expand its intuitive functionality with security, climate, surveillance and video distribution products and integrations.
