Elan Electronic Door Lock Integration Solution
ELAN Home Systems’ new electronic door lock integration solution allows users to makes changes to pass codes and lock schedules right from the g! interface, with no technician required. ELAN has created the industry’s most accessible history function for door locks so users can view a simple table with events for each lock, including when and how a door was locked as well as which user unlocked a door. Dealers can also configure the g! system to send outbound alerts through text or email to the homeowner, giving them instant notification when a lock jams or has a low battery, or when a lock is opened in their home.
When integrated with the ELAN g! System and g!Mobile app, electronic locks have the ability to communicate wirelessly with other “smart” devices in the home, such as lighting controls, thermostats and home security, making home control and personalization accessible to the average homeowner. Whether on a business trip 10,000 miles away or stuck at work when their kids get home, homeowners benefit from added convenience and peace of mind.

With a re-imagined door lock interface that is displayed in conjunction with the home's security system information, ELAN has surpassed other control manufacturers and given homeowners the easiest-to-use door lock integration of any control system. That means that they can view and check their security system and change door locks' status all from one screen on any g! interface device, including iPhones, iPads and Android smartphones. Also unique to the g! interface is the ability to secure all locks at once without complicated dealer programming.
The ELAN g! system is simple to use from anywhere in the world, so homeowners can easily set a temporary pass code for a maid, repairman, or so a neighbor can feed the dog while the owner is on vacation. With ELAN's new management feature, homeowners can also decide which locks always require a passcode from g! user interfaces, further enhancing security.
