The world’s most sophisticated and user-friendly entertainment and control system, ELAN® g!, is about to become even more user- and integrator-friendly with the ISE 2013 market debut of the new ELAN g!6.2 Software Update which features support for international weather forecasting, a host of new drivers and ‘back end’ improvements to make it even easier for integrators to program and install.The formal introduction of the new software update will take place at ISE 2013 in Stand 1N80.

According to ELAN Home Systems Brand Manager Robert Ridenour, the announcement of the new software update, in addition to bringing critically important new functionality to market, comes less than one month after the company began delivering its g!6.0 software and underscores the speed of product enhancements that are now underway at ELAN.

“With sales of the ELAN g! System hitting critical mass around the world, we are dedicated to accelerating the pace of software development that will ensure that the ELAN g! system remains the easiest to install, use, and update entertainment and control system available from any manufacturer,” Ridenour said today.

According to Ridenour, the new ELAN g!6.2 Software Update features a host of new features including support for true global weather forecasting that will allow g! customers in every part of the world to access and display weather forecasts for their geographic area.What’s more, the g!6.2 software will allow dealers to program specific automation trigger events based on the local forecast, including, but not limited to, temperature, humidity, wind, and weather alerts for automation of things like motorized window shutters and shades, internal climate set points and distribution of email alerts to the homeowner, among others.

“Automating the home via weather information is something that few other manufacturers can accomplish and this adds a great new feature set for ELAN g! integrators,” commented Ridenour.

The new ELAN g!6.2 Software Update also provides support for a host of new drivers, including manufacturers like Rako Lighting, Cool Master, and Clypsal Lighting, among others.In addition, the new update delivers an improved dealer- programming interface that further shortens the time required to program a g! system.

“Over the last year the international appeal of the ELAN g! system has grown significantly, in no small part due to the introduction of KNX support, Chinese language support, support of international streaming content and Android support,” Ridenour stressed.“Today’s announcement will serve to strengthen g!’s international appeal that much further.We look forward to a very exciting ISE 2013.”
