ELAN and Core Brands

About ELAN

Since 1989, ELAN has been dedicated to simplifying and enhancing the connected home. Our award-winning smart home entertainment and control system seamlessly combines music, TV, climate, lighting and other home systems with an easy-to-use interface that puts you in control, from anywhere in the home or anywhere in the world. 

Human Interface of the Year

The new ELAN 8 – with enhanced interface, powerful new user managed features and voice control through Amazon Alexa – was recognized at CES 2017 with the “2017 Human Interface Product of the Year” award from the Consumer Technology Association’s Mark of Excellence Award Program Committee.  The ELAN 8 software eliminates the need to have multiple apps and control switches for managing lighting, security, audio, video and other aspects of the connected home. All these components can now be controlled by the intuitive ELAN system.  



ELAN and Smart Homes for Wounded Veterans

We are honored to be working with the Gary Sinise Foundation and its R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program. The program builds specially adapted custom Smart Homes, anchored by ELAN control and automation systems, for American military personnel who have made extreme sacrifices for their country.

An ELAN entertainment and control system is at the heart of each smart home, integrating and controlling climate, security, audio/video and other subsystems to provide maximum comfort and convenience to the veterans and their families. The homes include audio solutions from SpeakerCraft, Niles or Sunfire, plus power protection and conditioning by Panamax and Furman—all from Core Brands. Additional products and solutions have been donated to these smart homes by Core Brands’ sister companies OmniMount and Nortek Security & Control.
