The Top of The Evolutionary Ladder
When it comes to system integration controllers you are unlikely to need more than the gSC10 can accommodate. Featuring a faster CPU, more memory, extensive I/O and flexible connectivity, the gSC10 with the 8.o software is designed to integrate medium- to extra-large projects.
Working on a Linux foundation and designed specifically to optimize the latest version of ELAN g! now and in the future, the gSC10 is built for ultimate performance and reliability. The gSC10 uses the latest processing technology and more efficient code to improve response time for both the technician and the end-user. While the g! HC series controllers have been celebrated for their ultra-dependable nature, the gSC10 goes even further by eliminating all moving parts and using internal redundancies to virtually eliminate the risk of catastrophic failure.
g! system controllers feature “Best-of-Breed”, third party integration and extensive ELAN and Core Brands support. With unparalleled support of top manufacturers like Lutron, Vantage, Aprilaire, Autonomic Controls, Schlage, Yale, Honeywell, KNX, Yamaha, Integra, Marantz and Hunter, as well as a solid offering of lighting, climate, camera, power conditioning and entertainment gear from ELAN and our Core Brands, you will never lack for quality integration choices with drivers that make programming a snap.
The gSC10 includes connections for (8) serial RS-232 devices, (2) serial RS-485 devices, (4) ELAN sensors, (10) IR emitters (capable of driving dual emitters), (10) dry contact relays and (1) USB-A, and connects through the PoE (power over Ethernet) port to Ethernet-controlled systems.
Should the need arise, the gSC10 also includes Wi-Fi with an external antenna for areas where you don’t have Ethernet connectivity but need control.
g!’s award winning interface is compatible with the widest variety of user interfaces including ELAN’s touch panels, keypads and hand held remotes, as well as PCs, Macs and smart devices running iOS and Android operating systems. The gSC10 is designed to fully exploit the capabilities of the ELAN g1 when used as an extender to supply OSD, expand the g! user experience, and to provide additional I/O. No matter how or where you want to check on your home, ELAN and the gSC10 will have you covered.

Elan g! Voted Best Product by Builder News
The ELAN® g! Entertainment and Control System was named a Best Product of 2011 by BUILDERnews magazine, the national residential and multifamily media brand for builders, developers, contractors and designers. Each year, BUILDERnews’ editorial staff undergoes a rigid and lengthy process to choose winners based on innovation and potential impact on the builder and remodeler for ease of use, competitiveness, upsell potential and product effectiveness.
Elan Home Systems, a pioneer in home controls, is totally revamping its line of home automation and multiroom A/V products in a roll-out that is “history in the making,” says Paul Starkey, VP sales and marketing.
The details cannot be revealed just yet, but CE Pro had an in-depth preview of the product and we can vouch for Starkey’s assessment that “It’s the biggest product introduction ever for our company.”
The new line, called “g!”, is a perfect blend of Elan and HomeLogic, the progressive developer of IP-based control systems acquired by Elan in 2007.
Until now, the two companies generally operated in their own worlds, with much of the innovation – like cool new GUIs — coming from HomeLogic. In the new g! line, the graphics are elegant and consistent across a variety of interfaces, including an Ole-like OLED display, iPhone, PC, new touchscreens, and some surprising new form factors that definitely bring Elan up to date in the style, mobility and IP departments.
And, yes, the g! comes with Elan’s first on-screen display for controlling the system via the television.
Not only is the new system stylish, it is also more modular in design than legacy Elan products. That means it makes sense for virtually any installation, “from single-room to large-scale mansion-level,” Starkey says.
