|The UltraSync app allows users to receive push notifications over their mobile devices for individual events
Smart home management just got more convenient. Homeowners using Interlogix’s ZeroWire™ smart home hub can now receive automatic mobile device notifications in their choice of language through its updated mobile app, UltraSync. Interlogix, a global leader in security and life-safety solutions, is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
The enhanced UltraSync SmartHome app, featured at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, allows users to receive push notifications over their mobile devices for individual events such as alarms, or system arming and disarming. Text can be displayed in the user’s choice of English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. The portal’s multiple language support also allows different languages to be assigned to different users.
“These UltraSync enhancements provide homeowners with more convenience and control of their home management system through the iOS and Android phones and tablets they have within reach every day,” said Paul Van der Zanden, General Manager, global intrusion and alarm monitoring solutions, Interlogix.
Since its introduction early last year, the ZeroWire hub and UltraSync SmartHome app have won top awards at key industry trade shows for security products, including ISC West and the Electronic Security Expo.
Compatible with Z-Wave devices
The UltraSync SmartHome system with ZeroWire hub supports a variety of devices to heighten security and enhance a homeowner’s lifestyle. With its built-in Z-Wave® radio, users can control an increasing number of Z-Wave devices including connected lights, thermostats and locks. The system also supports IP cameras, including the ability to view live video and replay captured alarm or action-triggered video.
The ZeroWire hub also offers new convenience features with service pack 2.0. Users can select multiple “Stay” modes for entry delay, instant alarm or night operation.
Other hub features include:
- Event filtering – Users can filter between video, alarm and other non-alarm events
- Scrollable event history – As many as 10 events can be displayed at a time
Also at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, Interlogix will feature a new wedge camera to the smart home family. The IP camera is designed for an easy, secure wireless connection to the ZeroWire hub through a home network and offers high-definition images.
“Designed for both indoor and outdoor environments, the new Wi-Fi camera is also built to withstand harsh outdoor settings. It’s perfect for virtually any location to monitor activity at the home,” Van der Zanden stated.
Both the UltraSync app and ZeroWire hub updates will be available on Jan. 18.
Interlogix will demonstrate the UltraSync SmartHome app with ZeroWire hub at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, booth 70358, along with UTC Climate, Controls & Security brands Carrier and Kidde. The booth will also feature a new home automation solution from Carrier, which uses Interlogix’s proven ZeroWire and UltraSync technology. The solution will be branded under Carrier’s Côr™ brand and offered through participating HVAC dealers starting in 2016.
