ELAN demos two new intelligent touch panels at ISE 2019
Nortek Security & Control has announced that it is now conducting live demonstrations of its two new ELAN Intelligent Touch Panels that leverage face recognition and voice control technology at ISE 2019. Located in stand 1-N50 the new touch panels each integrate face recognition to control media, lighting, climate, shares, security and more.
ELAN product manager Jeff Shaw says the new interfaces go above and beyond a normal touch panel.
“They are fully interactive control panels that redefine what smart home control can be,” Jeff says.
Each new intelligent touch panel starts with a high-resolution touch screen interface. Face recognition analytics from NSC’s IntelliVision enables the panel to respond to individual users with a personalised menu, and to automatically create scenes – such as media, climate lighting – personalised for the user.
The dual digital MEMS microphone-array provides exceptional voice control for the ELAN system, with flexibility that lets users choose their preferred voice interface – including Amazon Alexa™ – without needing to fill the house with voice assistant hardware.
The intelligent touch panels display high-resolution video, including monitoring and playback from ELAN surveillance cameras and NVR. Two-way audio and video enable exceptional communication with the video doorbell, paging and ELAN intercom.
ELAN Discovery simplifies installation by auto-discovering the intelligent touch panels on the network and configuring them with just a click. Each panel mounts using a standard 2 gang (US) box, which means no custom bracket is required.
The interactive panels can be powered locally using a 12VDC power supply (not included) or using PoE, and connect to the controller over WiFi or using power over Ethernet and with a single wire hookup.
Jeff says the goal is to make the ELAN smart home smarter and more connected.
“With these new intelligent and interactive panels, we’re making the smart home experience more intuitive as well.”
