To meet increasing integrator demand, Nortek Security & Control (NSC), a global provider of wireless security, home automation, access control and health and wellness technology, today announced the opening of the ELAN Training Center at its Carlsbad, Calif. headquarters. The company also operates a facility in Dallas, Texas. 

“We are expanding our hands-on training and support program to equip even more dealers with the tools and skills needed to succeed,” said Brian Pflum, training and technical engineer. “With our new second training center, we are helping more dealers get started with ELAN intelligent home control than ever before.” 

Training topics cover everything a new integrator will need to know to get up and running with ELAN. Areas of focus include hardware and connectivity; security, climate and lighting; Z-wave and door locks; IP cameras; media applications; streaming media and IR sources; intercom; event mapping; interfaces and custom pages; 2GIG GC3 security panels and sensors for every station; updated training materials and certificates; and more. The 2.5-day session costs $750 and all participants receive $1,400 worth of ELAN gear, including a controller and the HR30 remote. 

“This is absolutely a hands-on experience,” Pflum said. “Attendees start with a rack of gear and end up with a fully configured ELAN system. And response to the new facility has been fantastic!”

Interested dealers can register for ELAN training in Carlsbad August 20-22 and September 24-26; and in Dallas August 13-15 and September 24-26.
