Blackwire Offers Direct Ring Integration for Elan Home Systems
Blackwire has introduced a Ring Events driver for Elan home automation systems, an addition to existing drivers for Control4 and URC systems.
With this pilot, integrators will be able to use the push button and motion events of Ring devices and integrate them into their Elan projects.

Founded in 2009 and comprised of former integrators, Phoenix, AZ-based Blackwire Designs distinguishes itself as a unique distributor in the custom installation industry, serving residential and commercial dealers. Blackwire Designs is also home to a large driver market, offering a range of proprietary and third-party integration drivers for the Control4 and URC platforms.
Black wire ring driver is faster
This direct and official integration with Ring allows the driver to be much faster than other solutions that may rely on third-party services and is more reliable than doorbell detection hardware, which may be too sensitive to power fluctuations. .
“We worked directly with Ring to create a solution that we would be able to extend to other platforms in the industry,” says Kevin Luthur, owner of Blackwire. “We are very happy to offer our driver for Elan Systems in addition to our other integrations with Control4 and URC, and we are proud to be the exclusive solution for this industry. We plan to roll out more integration in the near future.
How the pilot works
With Blackwire’s new Ring integration for Elan, when someone presses the doorbell button, the Elan system instantly receives a Ring event to perform a number of home automation routines. Integrators can also schedule additional actions, such as lighting scenes or audio announcements, based on motion events received from doorbells and Ring cameras.
The driver is now available on the Blackwire website and can be bundled with most Ring hardware at a discount when purchased together.
