ELAN has officially introduced the new ELAN Flagship Experience program. At the same time, ELAN appointed Executive Electronics as an ELAN Flagship Experience Certified Dealer. The new ELAN Flagship Experience program requires that a new smart home system be installed to ELAN specifications, the design must be certified by ELAN and the installation must be accomplished by a Flagship Experience certified dealer. The end user receives a system with a robust design consisting of quality components. ELAN grants the installed system with an unprecedented FIVE YEAR warranty.
A Flagship-certified system is comprised of any ELAN control system using a certified system design that meets minimum product requirements. The system must include an ELAN controller, touch panel and gHR200 remote, plus an ELAN, SpeakerCraft or Niles MRAV chassis, speakers and a subwoofer from SpeakerCraft, Niles or Sunfire. It must also include high-quality power management by Panamax or Furman.
Once the system is certified, the warranty for all eligible products is increased to five years, giving customers maximum confidence in their investment.

Executive Electronics honored
Honeywell Integrated Security recently designated Executive Electronics of Southwest Florida Inc as a Platinum-level Security Integrator Service Dealer. We are proud to receive this certification from Honeywell.
Here is Honeywell’s description of the program: “Honeywell has developed a program to enhance the quality of support and services delivered to end users from our integrators. Our Integrator Service Certification program recognizes the investments that our integrators make in servicing our products for end users. We have developed the Integrator Service Certification program because we know that successful integrators deliver high quality service to their customers, improve customer satisfaction and build customer loyalty. By emphasizing great service these integrators differentiate themselves from the competition, while creating value that customers are looking for. We believe integrators who make the investment and effort to deliver quality service deserve recognition for their efforts.”
Setting an industry standard
“The Honeywell Integrated Security Integrator Service Certification (ISC) program is setting a standard in the security industry. The program assures a consistently high level of integrator support and service to our end users. It also recognizes and rewards our integrators’ substantial investments in servicing and supporting Honeywell security systems.”
“Honeywell recognizes that our most successful integrators deliver the very highest level of quality service to their customers.”
“The ISC program sustains and enhances this level of service and provides several benefits that clearly distinguish a integrator’s service level and portfolio from those of the competition.”
On-site audit by Honeywell
To receive the certification, Honeywell administered an on-site audit and evaluation. If accepted, a dealer is designated as Authorized, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Honeywell determined that Executive Electronics deserved a Platinum designation, the highest level we could achieve.
Here at Executive Electronics, all of us work very hard, every day, to provide great service to our customers. We are honored to be recognized for that effort by Honeywell.

Mobile is a big theme
I’m currently flying home from Las Vegas where I was awed by the number of exciting new products at the International Security Conference. ISC West is held in Las Vegas annually and this show was the biggest ever with nearly 30,000 security professionals on hand. Exhibitors from countries around the world demonstrated exciting new technologies that address the needs of homes, businesses and industry. While security was the focus of the show, products also targeted automation, convenience and entertainment.
Honeywell shows new products
I had an extended visit to the Honeywell Security pavilion where representatives demonstrated new capabilities for the Total Connect mobile platform. New compatibilities with door-locking hardware, security doorbells and thermostats are slated to be included in the Total Connect ecosystem. With the new Tuxedo firmware release, you will be able to remotely monitor and control your comfort along with security, video, video doorbell, automation and GPS tracking service – all from a single app on your iOS devices. Subscribe (below article) to stay updated on Executive Electronic’s latest news about the release of this update.
Video was king of show
Video security was the largest single category at ISC West. Countless exhibitors displayed cutting-edge technology for video surveillance. Most of the video products also incorporated mobile surveillance capability. The new video technology ranged from compact but convenient residential devices to sophisticated systems for large complexes and facilities.
