Product Description

Includes M1 Controller, Enclosure, & Transformer

Integrates – Security – Automation – Lighting – Telephone. Available in two Versions: ELK-M1 (Standard) and ELK-M1G (Gold) (see comparison chart)


The M1 Controller family offers unequaled value to Systems Integrators, Installers and End Users alike. Unlike panels that may be strong in automation but weak in security (or vice versa), the M1 boasts a rock solid security foundation with the most imaginative and powerful automation functionality available.

Integrators and Installers will value the flash memory firmware, RS-232 serial port, ethernet connectivity option, fast PC programming and ease of installation resulting in reduced work time. M1 offers the flexibility to integrate industry standard systems and components for easy upgrades and system expansion.

End users will welcome the quality and futuristic capabilities of the versatile keypad and the built-in telephone remote. The 500+ word vocabulary pleasantly announces system status, configurable in any sequence to alleviate user intimidation.

Choose from the full feature ELK-M1G (Gold) or the powerful ELK-M1 standard. Both are designed to exceed your expectations while expanding your earnings potential.

M1...Experience the Industry's Most Advanced Cross Platform Control.
