Colorado vNet Expands Home Automation System with CCTV Camera Integration

With new application module, users can view video images from cameras on the same Vibe™ Color Touchscreen that controls audio, lighting, climate, security, and more.

Loveland, CO - June 24, 2008 - Colorado vNet has expanded its integrated home automation system with the availability of the Colorado vNet CCTV Application. With the CCTV Application, users can view video images from up to 20 local and/or remote network cameras on the same award -winning Vibe™ Color Touchscreen used for controlling audio, lighting, climate and security systems, and more.


The CCTV Application supports Panasonic and Axis network (IP) cameras, as well as analog cameras via Panasonic and Axis single camera video servers. If the chosen camera supports pan/tilt/zoom, the available controls will automatically be shown as an overlay of the video image. In addition, cameras may also support pan/tilt touch centering, where touching the video image display centers the camera on the point touched.

"With the CCTV Application, homeowners experience a convenient way to watch over their main house, guest house, or even a vacation home, and they can do so from any room," said Mike Malone, Vice President of Sales for Colorado vNet. Bill Beierwaltes, Colorado vNet CEO, added "We continue to offer practical home automation solutions that provide value without adding technology clutter. Integrators experience a simple installation with our pre -integrated modules -all the work is already done."

The CCTV Application Module acts as the gateway between the Colorado vNet system and the CCTV camera system. With the CC1 -40 Application Module, up to 40 touchscreens can display camera views. For smaller installations, four additional CCTV Application Modules (CC1 -5, CC1 -10, CC1 -20 and CC1 -30) are available. Wizard -based vNet Producer™ software is used to configure not only the Colorado vNet CCTV Application, but also Vibe Audio System and Climate and Security Applications.
