ELAN® Announces Special Dealer Discount Program For Z-Wave Door Lock Products

Continuing its mission to provide dealers and end users with compelling system benefits and attractive new products, ELAN® Home Systems today announced a new dealer promotion that offers discounted pricing for various Kwikset, Yale and Leviton Z-Wave door lock products ordered between October 15 and November 30, 2012. The discounts range from 5 percent to 10 percent depending on the product.

ELAN g! integrates best-of-breed Z-Wave lock products from Kwikset, Yale and Leviton which are being offered to dealers through Worthington Distribution in the U.S. and Product Solutions Group in Canada.

According to ELAN Brand Manager Robert Ridenour, ELAN’s newly implemented electronic door lock integration provides dealers with an industry-leading product that will inevitably help them to sell more g! systems. “This promotion gives dealers added incentive to promote ELAN’s most recent expansion of the g! system’s capabilities and will help them convince both new and existing customers that electronic door locks are convenient, safe and affordable,” Ridenour said.

“ELAN’s development team worked with the company’s third-party manufacturers and Worthington Distribution to develop the industry’s best electronic lock integration software and interface,” Ridenour emphasized, “and we want to make it easy for dealers to promote this new product to their clients. We are committed to making sure every dealer and end user knows that ELAN is the best home control system on the market, and continue to work closely with our manufacturing and distribution partners to create dealer promotions that make g! even easier to sell.”

The ELAN g! door lock software features a simple and convenient interface for iOS and Android mobile devices that includes an industry-first history function, allowing users to view past lock activity and monitor who is using which door at what time.

Tom Morgan, Chief Technical Officer at Worthington Distribution, said, “We’re thrilled to partner with ELAN for this electronic lock promotion and expect ELAN dealers to take advantage of these discounts to make g! an even more impressive control system for users in both the residential and commercial markets. We’re huge supporters of home control and Z-Wave products that can simplify people’s lives, and we want to make it both affordable and easy for consumers to modernize their homes.”

And Jim Peebles of Product Solutions Group added that ELAN is taking a best-practices approach with every aspect of the g! system. “This is another level of value-add for the g! system and brings a tremendous amount of value to the users and dealers,” Peebles said. “By partnering with the best lock manufacturers and ELAN, which now offers the industry’s best door lock interface, we’ve developed a limited-time discount program that is sure to add to dealers’ bottom lines and help make electronic door locks a priority for every dealer and end user.”

The ELAN g! Control System provides users with the most uniform and intuitive icon-based control from their favorite devices including TVs, touchscreens, touchpads, PCs, and Android and iOS mobile devices. The standardized interface works across platforms, so that the trendy g!Mobile app users love on the iPhone appears and works identically on Android and ELAN touchscreens, valets and handheld remotes. And the system’s IP backbone makes it just as easy to control the system from across the room as across the globe.

Individual “apps” for each subsystem allow the user to control security, door locks, 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, Android phones & tablets and personal computers. 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.
