I too will be interested in the elan interafce to ELk. I hope the Elan driver will work with all Elan sytems as I have the Elan Z series. I also plan on replacing my current security panel vista 50 with the M1.
While we wait for this interface, I think you can tie elan and elk by adding a controller that has ir capability like ocelot or homevision. I have both units but I use homevision with my Elan. Using homevision, you can control basic ir functions of Elan directly from the elk keypad, or through wireless x10 and upb remotes, or whenever a zone changes state, etc.
Elan control can be accopmlished two ways:
1. If you use Upb or x10 for lighting, write a rule in Elkrp to send out x10 or upb signal when a code is entered in the elk keypad, or when a zone changes state etc. Homevision then sends the appropriate ir command to elan when it detects the signal.
2. For a more relaible control, the M1 voltage outputs can be connected directly to homevision input. You will then write elk rules to turn these ports on or off and homevision will act accordingly.
I currently use both methods with my current security and elan systems and they work well. Homevision does not need a computer to be on in order to operate and can be mounted in the same location as the M1.
