New surveillance software update from ELAN at ISE 2019
Nortek Security & Control (NSC) has announced a new ELAN software update, to be released at ISE 2019. The software features support for the ELAN surveillance range, with advanced IntelliVision video analytics.
NSC director of software product management Tom McKeon says, “ELAN 8.3 is our latest software that makes the smart home or business more intuitive and intelligent, and provides dealers and end-user customers with more customisation options. With every update we make it easier to access, control and automate more subsystems within the installation.”
The software update supports the range of ELAN surveillance cameras which allows new object detection by NSC subsidiary IntelliVision to decrease false positive alerts. The viewer tab allows configuration and recording options and users can set a recording schedule with choices between motion only, constant or custom modes. Certain schedules can be applied to all channels and customised motions can be set with weighted recording support. Password protection is available as is the option to link recording and privacy options to System Mode.
Tom says, “The new capabilities offered by the ELAN surveillance camera line lets users define a custom ‘survey area’ for advanced motion detection, and set sensitivity, object size, width parameters and scene types. The system can distinguish between a ‘person’ and a general motion event – like a tree swaying in the wind – that is a primary reason people turn off their alerts.”
The update enables surveillance footage timeline loading for remote playback, and can set static IP addresses for NVR and cameras in the new discover tab. There is a new weather service and weather icons, with updated drivers for AVRs that include Sony, Marantz, Pioneer and Denon.
With 8.3, ELAN now speaks directly with the 2GIG Vario hybrid wired/wireless security panel. Pentair IntelliCenter support is additional for pool and spa control. The Sonos driver updates enable line-in support for players as well as static zones for home theatre players and optical-in selection.
New port scan and tunnel features enable a tab to scan a local network for open http port (80) which helps integrators.
Tom says, “We’re confident dealers and their customers are going to appreciate the enhanced functionality of this new release. We invite all integrators working with competitive control systems to come experience ELAN at ISE 2019.”
