Elevating the front door experience for custom installers and homeowners alike, Nortek Security & Control (NSC) announced the introduction of the new Elan Intelligent Video Doorbell at CEDIA 2018.

"Allowing users to answer the door from anywhere either in the home or remotely is just the start," says Product Manager Jeff Shaw. "As a doorbell camera, it integrates advanced motion analytics to accurately identify between people and moving objects such as a passing car and swaying trees, developed by NSC’s IntelliVision. This all but eliminates false alerts 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. The Video Doorbell is auto-discovered and auto-configured within 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, a feature not found in other control systems. 

Available in three colours – Satin Nickel, Anodized Black and Oil-Rubbed Bronze – the PoE enabled Door Station features a metal faceplate, and its small footprint fits legacy Elan door station mounting brackets. Optional surface-mount kits are available in matching finishes.
