LEXINGTON, KY - - ELAN™ Home Systems today announced that the company has started to ship its comprehensive new sensors, ELAN™Sense. The announcement was made by Bob Farinelli, President and Chief Technical Officer of ELAN Home Systems.

According to Mr. Farinelli, "ELAN provides many levels of home automation. We have seen a trend of requests for basic home automation using sense and contact closure inputs, without a lot of programming required. Previously, we were referring our Dealers to available products on the market, and along the way, it became clear that there was a need for, and an opportunity for us to produce, a more reliable product. Our new lineup provides dealers with a superior product at a price point that fits well within their client's needs and budgets."

Paul Starkey, ELAN's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, added, "We recently introduced our new multi -room controllers, the System6 and System12, both of which include sense inputs on board. We designed these new sensors to plug -and -play with our latest generation of controllers in order to serve all types of installations from the most basic up to the best and beyond."

Individually priced at $40.00 (MSRP) per unit, each Sensor possesses its own unique functionality. The Voltage Sensor detects any AC/DC voltage between 3V and 24V. The LED/Light Sensor detects light including day light, room lights, LEDs, and various displays. The Contact Sensor detects dry switch / relay closures.
