Nice/Nortek Control Announces Software Upgrade 8.7 for ELAN Control Systems

NiceNortek Control Software Upgrade 8.7 for ELAN Control SystemsNice/Nortek Control announced the release of its Software Upgrade 8.7 for ELAN Control Systems. New features include Direct Control functionality, Bluetooth player capability, an entirely new subcategory of utility products integration and integration with the 2GIG EDGE Security Panel.

The new Direct Control feature claims to allow ELAN Remote Controls to communicate natively with an ELAN Controller rather than using the home Wi-Fi. The new Bluetooth player turns every ELAN Touch Panel into a Bluetooth receiver, eliminating the need for any external receiver. Anyone in the home can connect their smartphone through an ELAN Touch Panel to play their own music through the whole home audio system.

This Software Upgrade also provides a new subcategory for utility products, such as power management and conditioning, air quality and leak detection. Version 8.7 Software is the first to deliver integration with the 2GIG EDGE Security Panel.

Some of the specifically requested utility solution offerings include ELAN Control Systems integration with the 2GIG EDGE panel, Moen Flo and Phyn water leak detection, TED energy-efficiency monitoring and Broan/Nutone Overture indoor air quality control.
