ELAN® Debuts World's First Universal Remote Controller Featuring Built-In Whole Home Control

The new ELAN® g1 Remote Controller makes the award-winning ELAN Home Control Platform available to every homeowner on any budget.

PETALUMA, Calif., Dec. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A universal remote controller that offers complete home control is now a reality through the new ELAN® g1 Controller from Core Brands' ELAN Home Systems. Requiring no monthly contract and offering a wide variety of home control functionality, the ELAN g1 is leaps and bounds ahead of other low-cost home control solutions. ELAN has been making the easiest-to-use, yet most powerful home control solutions for more than 25 years, and this is the brand's first entry into the sub-$1,000 market. That means for about the price of a new TV, users can gain complete control, not just of their televisions and home theaters, but also of their entire homes.


The ELAN g1 lets homeowners use a single handheld remote control to manage up to 16 zones of security, two electronic door locks, an audio/video receiver with up to 32 connected TVs, up to 24 lighting keypads, three thermostats, three IP surveillance cameras and up to 16 groups of irrigation. With ELAN's deep experience in home control, the system is designed to be fully expandable to grow with any user's home or budget.

Everything comes in one package, including the main controller, the remote and several accessories that installers can use to maximize the system's functionality. While using the system is as simple as using a TV, ELAN only offers the system through certified professional technology integrators. This provides users with a g1 system personalized to their needs. No two users are the same, so working with a professinal integrator allows owners of homes, apartments, and condos to maximize the value of their system and ensure smooth operation for years to come. A list certified integrators can be found at http://elanhomesystems.com/where_to_buy.asp.
