ELAN Wins Residential Systems ‘Best of Show’ Award at Integrated Systems Europe 2016

PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA, February 12, 2016 – Solidifying its position as the industry leading manufacturer of control, audio and power solutions for the residential custom installation industry, Core Brands was presented with Residential Systems magazine’s Best of Show Award at Integrated Systems Europe 2016 for the ELAN  Intercom.

The Residential Systems Best of Show Awards are designed to recognize new and outstanding products exhibited at the annual ISE show. A team of New Bay Media editors, publishers of Residential Systems magazine, and industry experts selected this year’s winners by examining each submitted product on the ISE show floor. Products were judged on general value to an integrator, end-user benefits and overall product innovation.

“ISE is the premier international trade show for the commercial and residential custom installation industry,” Core Brands Director of Marketing Bill Hensley said today. “It’s an honor to be singled out by Residential Systems at a show of this magnitude for our new ELAN Intercom solution. We strive every day to design, engineer, and manufacture products and solutions that exceed our dealers’ expectations, and the new ELAN Intercom clearly does that.”

The ELAN Intercom allows users to make point-to-point calls globally, to any interface across any linked system. For Intercom zones that share the same network, users can “page” to group-communicate with all intercom zones on the network. ELAN Software 7.3 automatically updates compatible ELAN control interfaces – touch panels, remotes, and the ELAN g!Mobile app – with the ELAN Intercom functionality, and seamlessly integrates with the property’s controlled A/V technology. This provides homeowners with an instant unified audio/video intercom system that is globally accessible. “ELAN Intercom has been a hot topic among our dealers; the added bonus of an Intercom feature, offered for free, provides a unique selling point during every project,”

The ELAN Intercom and SpeakerCraft Dolby Atmos speaker will be honored in a forthcoming NewBay Media ISE 2016 Best of Show ebook.
