Lifestyle-Enhancing Features

Imagine your customer walks into their smart home and it automatically recognizes them and adjusts the home’s settings to their preferences in real-time. This is made possible through the continued evolution of ELAN control systems. Starting with personalization for all, you can enhance your customers’ lifestyle with these features:

  1. Source Favorites

Source favorites can be customized on any interface and are found on the source selection page as well as in the zone list feed. Easily assign favorite audio and TV channels, which become readily available with a single tap of a button. Source favorites fall under the viewer using the system but can be assigned to any user.

  1. Facial Recognition

Using IntelliVision® analytics, facial recognition is only available on the ELAN 12-inch touch panel and 8-inch touch panel. Dealers are able to setup facial recognition for any user by following the simple steps outlined in the video below. Once a face is recognized, source favorites can be loaded in real time.

  1. Personalized Flyouts

 Giving you a competitive advantage, our ELAN systems feature personalized flyouts that are exclusive to our touch panels, much like facial recognition. These flyouts give an extra degree of ease and convenience through contextual access to:

  • Media favorites
  • Lighting & shades
  • Climate settings
  • Custom action buttons
  • Event mapping login (in configurator)
