Climax Technology is now offering integration with Amazon Echo, IFTTT, and voice reporting, available on Climax Home Portal Platform, to provide users with increased flexibility, control and greater peace of mind. Climax Home Portal Server Platform is an IP/GPRS-based security management solution designed to provide security professionals and home owners with new and convenient ways to manage home security and smart home automation services.
Voice control with Alexa
With the addition of Amazon Echo, IFTTT, and voice reporting integration, users can now leverage enhanced smart home security for improved comfort, safety, and lifestyle. According to Coldwell Banker’s 2017 Smart Home Marketplace Survey, 72% of Americans are ready and actively want voice control.
Climax Home Portal Platform is designed to fulfill those needs, through its integration with Amazon Alexa, the cloud-based voice service that powers Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, giving users the ability to control their devices through simple and intuitive voice commands. With Climax and Alexa, users can issue voice commands such as “Alexa, tell Climax Alarm to arm,” to arm their security system – all with a single voice command.
Smart home security systems
Or, a “Alexa, tell Climax Alarm to lower the living room lights by 20 percent,” command to control individual devices such as lights, dimmers, power switch, roller shutters, or to activate pre-set multi-device scenes. Connecting Amazon Echo with Climax Home Portal is easy and simple. A user simply enables the Climax Alarm Skill inside the Alexa app, connects with Climax Home Portal/gateway, and can then discover all the devices connected to the gateway and then, their home is ready for voice control.
Climax has taken it one step forward and bolstered Climax Home Portal Platform with voice reporting functionality
IFTTT Integration Climax Home Portal Platform is now ready for “If This Then That” (IFTTT) integration, allowing users to create chains of simple conditional statements that connects various apps, devices and online services, adding functionality for users to get more out of their smart home security systems. One of the most important functions of a security alarm system is to notify the user when there is an alarm, but sometimes push notifications and emails are simply not enough.
Expand home safety
Climax has taken it one step forward and bolstered Climax Home Portal Platform with voice reporting functionality, allowing all Climax IP Gateways the option to add on voice reporting capability. When there is an alarm, users will receive a verbal call, informing users of the type of alarm and location of alarm, so users are able to take action immediately.
Climax Technology will continue to add integrations and features to Climax Home Portal Platform, to further expand home safety and security for consumers and their loved ones.
