ELAN Debuts Intercom to European Integration Market
ELAN has debuted Intercom to the EMEA market at ISE 2016
Enabled in ELAN Software 7.2 and above, the new Intercom function allows users to link separate ELAN systems, including those running on different networks across multiple locations.
Available now, ELAN Intercom (Core Brands stand 1-N53) allows users to make point-to-point calls globally, to any interface across any linked system. For intercom zones that share the same network, users can “page” to group-communicate with all intercom zones on the network.
ELAN Software 7.2 and 7.3 automatically refreshes compatible ELAN control interfaces – touch panels, remotes, and the ELAN g! mobile app – with the ELAN Intercom functionality, and seamlessly integrates with the property’s controlled AV technology. This provides homeowners with an instant unified audio/video intercom system that is globally accessible.
From a mobile phone or tablet anywhere in the world, ELAN’s g! mobile app allows users to answer pages and calls from any point in the network, monitor third-party door station audio and video, and control locks—all without incurring a remote access fee. Additionally, push notifications alert mobile device users of incoming intercom communications while a “Do Not Disturb” setting silences the intercom feature for users who do not wish to be interrupted.
The ELAN control system’s on-screen display (OSD) interface doubles as a one-way audio/video receiver for pages and doorbell chimes. Using powerful event maps, ELAN-controlled systems can activate displays to show the appropriate IP camera feeds and play chimes through multi-room audio systems when a doorbell is pressed on SIP-enabled third party audio and video door stations, or if a page is initiated from an intercom station.
