Nortek Security & Control Integrates ELAN With 2GIG GC3

  • PDF

Nortek Security & Control (NSC) integrates the ELAN Entertainment and Control Platform with the 2GIG GC3 security and control panel, making what the company claims is the first Z-Wave Plus-certified security panel.

Elan 2gigThe integration allows native control of the GC3 panel from the ELAN user interface. ELAN Auto Zone Detection simplifies installation, since once the panel is configured, all zones and zone names are automatically added to the system. An "Arm-Disarm" feature shows current panel security status, and provides controls for the arming and disarming of the GC3 system, while "Auto Arm" arms the panel without entering a PIN code.

"Event Based Arming" automates the arming as a system command (such as "away mode" or "good night mode") via the ELAN Event Mapper. "History View" provides access to the GC3 history page to view zone fault and system status history. "Zone Status" enables viewing the main security page displays of all currently faulted zones, while "Zone Bypass" allows installers to automatically bypass all faulted zones when arming from ELAN.

“This is a key step in expanding opportunities by bringing our security and control platforms together,” NSC says. “It’s part of our growing portfolio of connected smart home solutions that are easy-to-install for integrators and extremely intuitive for homeowners.”
