g! has been migrated to a whole new Linux platform and the gSC2 was designed specifically to optimize it. Programming is faster and the end-user experiences faster connections, quicker response to their inputs and instant reaction to their requests. g! hardware has a well-earned reputation for outstanding reliability. The gSC builds on that with new hardware that is free of moving parts, which increases reliability. No hard drives, no fans, literally nothing wears out and the operating system is protected with internal redundancies that when added together significantly reduce the risk of catastrophic failure. g! system controllers feature “Best-of-Breed” third party integration and extensive ELAN and Core Brands support. With unparalleled support of top manufacturers like Lutron, Vantage, Aprilaire, Autonomic Controls, Schlage, Yale, Honeywell, KNX, Yamaha, Integra, Marantz and Hunter, as well as a solid offering of lighting, climate, camera, power conditioning and entertainment gear from ELAN and our Core Brands, you will never lack for quality integration choices.
The gSC2 includes connections for (2) serial RS-232 devices, (2) ELAN sensors, (4) IR emitters (capable of driving dual emitters), (2) dry contact relays and (1) USB-A. More equipment is being controlled via Ethernet and the gSC2 is compatible with all g! Ethernet drivers. It is power efficient and may be single wire powered using power over Ethernet (PoE) and includes Wi-Fi with an external antenna for areas where you don’t have Ethernet connectivity but need control. g!’s award winning interface is compatible with the widest variety of user interfaces including ELAN’s touch panels, keypads and hand held remotes as well as PCs, Macs and smart devices running iOS and Android operating systems. No matter how or where you want to check on your home, ELAN and the gSC2 will have you covered.
