"Since our introduction to ELK, the products we have used have been a great asset to our company. Not only does the competitive pricing allow us to bid and land jobs that we had no chance at before, the zero defects have eliminated our return trips. This lowered our expenses. In addition, the staff at ELK is very knowledgeable and always eager to help. We look forward to an expanded product line and more business with ELK in the future."

"I haven't found a product from ELK that I don't like. We have been able to make impossible things happen with Magic Modules™. I'm not the world's greatest programmer - I've gotten a lot of help from the guys at ELK, but Magic Modules™ truly are magic!"

“As a professional dealer/installer of home automation equipment, reliability and performance are the most important aspects of the equipment I sell. ELK products are my first choice for both. Those aspects coupled with reasonable pricing make me feel there is no better alternative. If ELK makes it, that’s what I use.”

"The ELK-70 & ELK-75 look and sound great. They are easy to install and customers really like the way they look and blend in with their decor. ELK transformers are heavy duty and very reliable."

"At Worthington we include a TRG self resetting transformer in all of the system packages we create. We know what it is like to be finishing a job at 8:00 PM, plug in the transformer and blow a fuse. With the TRG you simply unplug the transformer, fix the wiring issue and keep going. Nothing is worse than being on a job and having to go back, the TRG helps our dealers finish jobs on time."

"I am very impressed with the new M-1 Control and keypads. I found the system to be extremely easy to work with especially for prior Moose control users with Z-1250 & Z-2000 experience. I am very, very, very impressed with the features of the M-1 package. IT IS TRULY WORTHY OF IT'S Z-1100 MOOSE HERITAGE. The keypads look simple but very expensive looking and the temperature indication on the keypad was a nice touch. This system was a perfect fit in the 1.7M$ residence that I installed it in. Programming appears to be simple and intuitive and I am excited about the voice response feature. I will give you more info and impressions when I complete the project."

"As a School District we do it a little different. We do all Security, Fire, Access Control, Telco, Closed Circuit TV, and Paging in house. The M1G is a control like no other. We found that it can talk to and interface with many of our systems. Ease of programming complex actions is a welcome change. Not a believer, have ELK send you one. The people are just great to deal with."

"I bought your timer circuit." (ELK-960) "It worked like a charm. I think it's flexible enough for a number of applications.  Thanks for offering a great product."

"I LOVE this ELK M1 Gold!   You guys have done an OUTSTANDING JOB!  Seems very high quality, both from a hardware and software perspective and just a perfect feature set!  I'd have to say that this was the most easy to install and use system that I've ever come across.  Specifically, the wiring diagram and text on the cover for the motherboard is terrific!  And the plug-in terminals, which allow wiring outside of the box, makes it easier in tight spaces.  The ElkRP program is particularly WONDERFUL:  One can connect by several means, my favorite way being by the Ethernet expansion board.  The compare feature - between what is programmed in the system and that in the RP's database is invaluable."
"Elk Products and the M1 Gold ROCK!"

"In a world where corporate Giants lose sight of the hardworking, independent dealer's needs, we fully, 100%, endorse ELK and their efforts TO BE what others are NOT. Now all that being said.. THIS PRODUCT (ELK-M1) ROCKS ! "

"We had been a Silent Knight Dealer since the 1960's, standardizing on their panels and platforms in a job with 3 zones or 244 zones.  After searching through different platforms to be what we run our company with everyday , the Elk M1 is a very nice fit.  This company has a panel that you can retrofit into older systems that will tolerate "old" protect loops without ringing off. The panel sits like a rock. Keypads, zone expanders and relay outputs make this a fit for running your business with ONE control panel, much like all regency dealers from Silent Knight experienced. The M1 is only #2 at ELK Products when compared to their tech line to overcome questions or problems. This is a company that walks the walk. If you have any doubts, and you are a licensed alarm company thinking about standardizing on this product, feel free to visit our company and we will show you this product in the field."

"There's nothing on the market that even touches the M1!"
Martin Carpenter

"I must say that your M1G product is the most innovative and ‘friendly’ security/automation I have ever worked with.  It has EVERY feature I have dreamed about for years….and even more.  I never expected to integrate automation with security to the degree that you have.  And voice is just icing on the cake!  Even the small touches like a heavy-gauge steel cabinet and built-in power switch, or the ‘battery reversed’ LED all help to make this system wonderful.   I am a newbie at your system and approach it from the computer side.  Once I got the ElkRP running I felt very comfortable with the system.  The M1G bridges the gap between old-school security systems and modern computer GUI control.   The vision of your development team is top notch!  I hope to further my expansion into this new field you have created."

"The M1-GOLD is a very solid controller for dedicated security and home automation. The ability to do an update without a chip change is a win-win solution. It's ability to interface with other products that have RS-232 control is outstanding. Also the ability to activate and deactivate the voice annunciation is a plus also. We are so impressed with the present controller and announced upgrades. We are now promoting the system to builders for their model homes and subdivisions as well as homeowners."

"My company started installing ELK systems about a year ago and as a technician they are my favorite system to install because of their simplicity of installation and programming and their reliability. I just installed an M1G with the new TS-07 and the screens were very cool!!!"

"...My search brought me to the ELK M1 and M1 Gold Platform. The M1 has been around for several years’ and the company that designed and manufactured the M1 has many years of experience in the security industry.  ELK calls the M1 a “Platform” because it has endless options and interfaces that can be built upon."

"The ELK M1G is sure a great security device as a house-control. But it can not only control a townhouse, but also a farm. And everything else too.

Have a look to the page  "an ELK on the meadow" on my website
http://www.viehweger.org/english/texas/elk.htm
which was originally written for www.cocoontech.com where you find more stuff regarding home-security & -automation.

The ELK-system solved a lot of my problems in a very easy way, - and has a great support."
