Nortek Elan video doorbell.

NORTEK Elan Intelligent Video Doorbell just released by Nortek Security & Control offers advanced analytic technologies to the residential security market, Nortek says the product can be used by integrators to help homeowners add a high level of security to their homes’ front doors.

The Intelligent Video Doorbell can seamlessly integrate into Elan’s Surveillance systems for video recording and monitoring, and Elan states the product was developed to set up easily through the company’s Elan Discover technology. With this technology, Elan’s home systems can auto-discover the door station, and once it is discovered it utilizes an auto-configuration function that facilitates its integration into Elan systems.

Once the door station is integrated into an Elan system, the product acts like a surveillance camera to capture video for the security system’s network video recorder (NVR). In addition, the Elan Intelligent Video Doorbell camera tamper feature sends users a notice if the camera is covered by a hand, tape, a cloth and more.

The Intelligent Door Station is available in a choice of satin nickel, anodized black and oil-rubbed bronze finishes. The door station’s metal faceplate and small footprint enable integrators to retrofit the product into older legacy systems, which can deliver an easy security upgrade to customers.
