ELANÂ® Debuts 10â€? In-Wall Color LCD Touch Screen Featuring â€œTouch And Swipeâ€? Design And Built-In Video Screen For Television Viewing
New ELAN TS10 joins the ELAN family of 7â€? and 4â€? Touch Screens, HR2 handheld remote, and g! mobile apps for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA, May 19, 2011 â€“ Following on the recent introduction of its expanded line of ELAN HC System Controllers for its g! Control System, ELAN Home Systems today introduced a new 10â€? in-wall color LCD touch screen to its award-winning family of user-friendly g! system interfaces. The new ELAN TS10 Touch Screen will be delivered to dealers beginning in June, according to Joe Lautner, ELAN Manager of Business Development & Product Management.
â€œThe new TS10 Touch Screen provides dealers and consumers with the ultimate touch screen experience,â€? Lautner said today. â€œIt combines a â€˜touch and swipeâ€™ design with a larger Active Matrix LCD screen for viewing television through the analog video feature, and larger easy-to-read icons for aging eyes. Itâ€™s ideal for watching television in the kitchen or the bathroom.â€?
The new ELAN TS10 Touch Screen also features composite video for viewing TV sources or cameras, a 16:9 wide screen format, backlit hard buttons for commonly used functions, built-in speaker and microphone for messaging, simple IP connectivity for communication, non-volatile flash memory, quick & easy programming, compatible with all ELAN controllers, easy retrofit installation, optional backbox and preconstruction brackets (sold separately), and a screen saver mode that can display photo. The TS10 ships standard with a white frame, but it is also available in almond, light almond, ivory, and black.
The g! family of interfaces is ELANâ€™s breakthrough series of touchscreen devices and applications that put total entertainment and control right at a consumerâ€™s fingertips. No matter what is being controlled â€“ the home, office, restaurant & bar, conference room or classroom â€” this exciting group of g! interfaces enable users to control everything in a fast, powerful, and, most importantly, intuitive way. Each one of ELANâ€™s handheld, mobile, or in-wall interfaces has the uniform g! look and feel creating a consistent user experience that is both familiar and satisfying. Users simply touch one of the fun g! interface icons and theyâ€™re in immediate control of their media, lighting, climate, security, video and much more.
In addition to the new TS10 Touch Screen, the ELAN family of interfaces includes the award-winning HR2 handheld remote control that is the ultimate merger of television remote and home control, the TS7 and TS2 7â€? and 4â€? Touch Screens, and the g! mobile applications for the iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. The ELAN g! System also provides interfaces for PCs and On-Screen Displays allowing for entertainment and home control from a television.
The ELAN g! Control System provides users with the most uniform and intuitive icon-based control from their favorite devices. The standardized interface works across platforms, so that the trendy g! Mobile app users love on the iPhone appears and works similarly on ELAN Touch Screens, valets and handheld remotes as well as users’ televisions and mobile devices. And the system’s IP backbone makes it just as easy to control the system from across the room – or across the globe.
Individual “apps” for each subsystem allow the user to control security, climate, lighting, media, irrigation, pool/spa, messaging, video and photos with the flick of a finger. Access is fast and secure through any ELAN home interface or globally with mobile Internet enabled devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Netbooks, and PC Tablets. Since the intuitive interface empowers users with personalized scheduling and detailed history views, high consumption subsystems like lighting and climate can be closely monitored and managed for a greener lifestyle – and substantial energy savings.
