UK-based company makes US debut at CES with iPhone app and iBridge
The Bellagio, Las Vegas, NV, January 8, 2010 - Connected home provider Intamac Systems has launched two new connected home applications - for monitoring and controlling home security, energy management, home automation and telecare through the internet and cell phones - at 2010 International CES, the world's largest consumer electronics show, on January 7 -10 in Las Vegas.
The Intamac iPhone application is an innovative interface which allows full two -way control, live video, messaging and reporting from the home. Connecting directly to the subscriber's Intamac account, the app will be available to download from the Apple store during the first quarter of 2010.
Also on show for the first time is the Intamac iBridge, an interface device which enables third -party communicating products to be connected via broadband to the Intamac Platform, allowing end -user customers to monitor and control these products remotely through their web -enabled Intamac account. This enables Intamac's home automation service My Control to be activated, which includes applications such as automatically powering down non -essential devices, locking doors and setting alarms when leaving the home - and powering up, unlocking and disarming the home when returning.
The Intamac iBridge features full two -way support of Zigbee and Zwave devices. Once connected to the home router, it automatically connects to the Intamac platform for self install and ease of use.
"The Intamac platform has the flexibility to take data in any format and from any device to enable service providers and utilities to offer value -added services such as security, energy management, automation and telecare," said Kevin Meagher, CEO, Intamac Systems. "Our support of technologies such as iPhone, Zigbee and Zwave demonstrates our commitment to support the most popular standards and devices to give consumers the greatest choice, and our partners the maximum flexibility."
