Carlsbad, Calif. - Elan will expand the selection of controllers for its g! System series of home-control systems with the June shipment of a 10-inch in-wall color LCD touchscreen.
The $2,200-suggested TS10 will join 7- and 4-inch touchscreens, the HR2 handheld remote, g! control apps for Apple's handheld devices, and user interfaces appearing on PCs and TVs. All deliver a standardized interface.
The controllers work with Elan's $3,000 HC12, $2,400 HC8, $1,950 HC6, and $1,100 HC4 IP-based home-control systems to control
security, climate, lighting, entertainment, irrigation, and other home systems. They also manage music, photos, and stored security-camera video.
The 16:9 widescreen TS10 features composite video for viewing TV sources or security cameras, backlit hard buttons for frequently used functions, built-in speaker and microphone for messaging, non-volatile flash memory, and a screen saver mode that displays photo. It is available in white, almond, light almond, ivory, and black.
Elan is part of Nortek's
, which includes the Aton, NilesSunfire, and Xantech brands.
