Jump starting its 2013 third-party developer program, ELAN® Home Systemstoday announced that its industry-leading ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System is now compatible with the VIVOTEK line of IP-based security cameras.

“We are very excited about this new partnership with ELAN,” said Harry Hu, President of VIVOTEK USA. “Everyone has seen the convergence of voice, video, and technology that new technologies are bringing to the industry. Now, VIVOTEK has further broadened the scope of this convergence with ELAN’s exciting technology.”

According to ELAN Home Systems Brand Manager Robert Ridenour, "ELAN partners with best-in-class entertainment, climate, security, lighting, irrigation and custom home electronics manufacturers to make sure our products and theirs work together seamlessly. Our dedication to third-party component integration makes the ELAN g! System a powerful foundation for any home control or entertainment system, including the VIVOTEK line of IP-based security cameras."

VIVOTEK IP cameras are supported in ELAN g! version 6.1 or newer, and the g! system supports video streaming, PTZ, motion detection and image flip functions in the cameras. The g!Tools Network Manager can automatically discover VIVOTEK cameras on the network, making it faster and easier than ever for integrators to implement a whole home surveillance and security system.

“The ability to easily integrate high-definition video cameras and microphones that can be controlled and viewed remotely has broadened the appeal of complete home control solutions,” Ridenour explained. “ELAN and VIVOTEK are on the cutting edge of home security, and ELAN will stay on the cutting edge by always integrating the industry’s best third-party solutions.”
