Perfect for home automation and more
Elan is a big name in home automation gear that tends to be high end. The company sells just about all you need to get your own home automation system running at home. The company has a new display it is teasing ahead of the official CES 2012 debut. The display is called the Elan VL10 Valet.
The VL10 can be placed on a tabletop or it can be mounted under a cabinet. The cabinet mount is perfect when counter space is at a premium, such as in a kitchen. The VL10 has a 10-inch screen that supports touch icons and swipe gestures.
It connects with a wire to the computer or home automation controller. It uses an analog computer input. It will interface with home automation and standard computer content at once. Pricing is unknown on the device, but it will be featured at CES 2012 and more details will likely be offered then.
