Nortek Security & Control (NSC) today announced the integration of the ELAN Entertainment and Control Platform with the 2GIG GC3, claiming it to be the industry’s first Z-Wave Plus Certified Security panel. The GC3 panel can now be controlled natively from within the intuitive ELAN user interface
ELAN’s Auto Zone Detection simplifies installation; once the panel has been configured, all zones and zone names will be automatically added to the system. Through the “Arm-Disarm” feature, the viewer interface shows current panel security status and provides controls to arm and disarm the GC3 system, while “Auto Arm” enables arming the panel without entering a PIN code. “Event Based Arming” automates the arming as a system command – such as “away mode” or “good night mode” using the ELAN Event Mapper. The “History View” provides access to the GC3 history page to view zone fault and system status history, “Zone Status” enables viewing the main security page displays of all currently faulted zones, while the “Zone Bypass” feature allows installers to automatically bypass all faulted zones when arming from ELAN.
