With the addition of Extensions in CH, you can use whatever system you are comfortable with, providing you write the extension, pay someone to write it, OR hope Crestron releases one (I believe ELK is a main system to be added).
From an integrators stand point we feel that security systems are a life safety system and install them based on that and not compatibility to integrate with a control system.
Elk, DSC, etc... as long as the system is reliable, is properly implemented and can handle the requirements, should function properly from a life safety standpoint.
The whole point of an Integrators standpoint is that it can integrate! That said, it would be nice if they added Elk... I will investigate.
As far a developing compatible modules... I have spent much time over the years trying to reinvent the wheel by writing/rewriting modules and tools for my own use and for Crestron Home... I will pass.
