Nortek Security & Control (NSC) has introduced the new ELAN Intelligent Video Doorbell.
"The new ELAN Intelligent Video Doorbell provides homeowners with an added level of safety and security for the main access point of their home," says ELAN Product Manager Jeff Shaw.
In addition to allowing you to answer the door from anywhere in the home, or even remotely, the doorbell also integrates advanced motion analytics, developed by NSC's IntelliVision, to accurately distinguish between people and moving objects, like passing cars or swaying trees.
"This all but eliminates false alerts," says Shaw, "that cause many users of doorbell cameras to turn off the notices altogether."
In addition to delivering automatic and authentic movement-based notifications of someone approaching the door, the Door Station camera integrates with ELAN Surveillance for video recording and monitoring. With ELAN Discovery, the Video Doorbell is auto-discovered and auto-configured for integration into an ELAN system. Its camera acts as one of the ELAN systems' surveillance cameras with video captured on the NVR, which is fully controllable from within the ELAN UI.
As an additional safety measure, the Intelligent Video Doorbell's camera tamper feature sends a notice if the camera is covered by something, like a hand. "We developed the Intelligent Door Station to deliver both convenience and peace of mind," says Shaw.
The ELAN Intelligent Video Doorbell is available in satin nickel, anodized black, and oil-rubbed bronze, with a metal faceplate. PoE-enabled, its small footprint fits legacy ELAN door station mounting brackets for easy upgrading. Optional surface-mount kits are also available in matching finishes.
The Doorbell will begin shipping this Fall.
