Electronic House Magazine Names ELAN’s VIA!Valet6.4 As One of Its 2005 Products of the Year

Leading Consumer Magazine Focusing on all Aspects of the Connected Home Recognizes New VIA!Valet as One of the Year’s Best Product Introductions

LEXINGTON, KY — ELAN Home Systems, a leading manufacturer of award-winning Multi-Room audio/video and home automation systems, today announced that Electronic House Magazine has named the company’s new touch panel, the VIA!Valet 6.4 as one of its Electronic House Products of the Year for 2005. The announcement was made by Bob Farinelli, ELAN’s President and Chief Technology Officer.

ELAN’s VIA!Valet6.4 takes all of the tried-and-true features of ELAN’s multi-award-winning VIA! color LCD Touch Panel and delivers them in a sleek, new body design. This remarkably flexible model is ideal for a desk, countertop, under-cabinet mounting, and for in-home applications where pivoting touch panel control is desired. The new VIA!Valet6.4’s design allows the screen to easily rotate and swivel up under a cabinet or fold and lay completely flat against its base on table tops when not in use, saving space.

The VIA!Valet6.4 offers ELAN’s consistent intuitive control for all installed compatible A/V, lighting, temperature, and security devices. As with all VIA! panels, it also doubles as a video monitor that provides users with the ability to view satellite and cable TV as well as monitor security cameras located in and around the home. For added convenience, this new model swivels 180 degrees back to front and 270 degrees right to left, while continuing to offer all the same feature sets of the existing VIA!6.4 model, and uses the same programming methods through ELAN’s VIA! TOOLS software.

“We are honored that Electronic House Magazine and its panel of judges have recognized ELAN’s VIA!Valet6.4 with this prestigious award,” said Mr. Farinelli. “We have had such tremendous success with VIA! and the latest design provides our Dealers and Customers with a whole new level of control esthetics and convenience.”

Electronic House Magazine’s Product of the Year Awards are presented annually by EH Publishing and honor the best in home automation and home entertainment products. The editors of EH Publishing’s four magazines that are dedicated to the electronic house all choose their favorite products through a democratic voting process. Award recipients were chosen based on reviews that ran throughout the year, product demos, and surveys conducted with the installers and users of the products. Topping the list of criteria is technological innovation, overall value, and outstanding features.

“Electronic House consistently receives hundreds of innovative connected home product entries for consideration for its annual Product of the Year Awards. This product’s superior diversity and capabilities have earned it this recognition. We are pleased to honor ELAN’s VIA!Valet6.4 as the best of the best among technology products for the connected home,” stated Electronic House Editor-in-Chief, Cindy Davis.

This year’s winning products will be featured in the September 2005 issue of Electronic House magazine, which will have bonus distribution to thousands of CEDIA Expo attendees.

The VIA!Valet6.4 comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty, and a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,999.00.
