Nexia(TM) Home Intelligence System Expands With New Products, Features and Pricing

Schlage® Home Motion Sensor and Door/Window Options Bring Added Value, Conveniences to Smart Home Automation System

CARMEL, Ind.--Schlage®, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, has expanded its Nexia™ Home Intelligence system with two new Schlage products, several features and new pricing enhancements, offering homeowners even more control over their home's safety, comfort and efficiency and making their lives simpler and easier - from wherever they are.


Nexia™ Home Intelligence brings together the best home automation technology in a simple way, allowing consumers to remotely manage multiple home functions and features, including door locks, heating and cooling, video surveillance, lights, shades and whole-home energy usage, via any Web-enabled computer and most mobile devices.

Now, consumers can control even more functions with the introduction of two new products that complement the Nexia System: the Schlage Home Motion Sensor and Schlage Home Door/Window Sensor.

Schlage® Home Motion Sensor

The new Schlage Home Motion Sensor can send a text alert when motion is detected, so consumers will know when situations at home need attention. It can be synced with other products through Nexia to turn on a light or trigger a recording through a camera when motion is detected. The Schlage Home Motion Sensor is available now for $69.99 at www.nexiahome.com.

Schlage® Home Door/Window Sensor

Now consumers can also integrate Schlage Home Door/Window Sensors into their Nexia System to monitor activities while they are away. Adding a Schlage Home Door/Window Sensor will enable them to confirm if doors and windows are opened or closed and receive text alerts when opened. No wiring is required and the sensor provides up to three years of battery life with normal usage. The Schlage Home Door/Window Sensor is now available for $49.99 at www.nexiahome.com.

"We continue to push the possibilities with Nexia. The expansion reflects our continuous promise to bring added value through new features and products," said Steve Samolinski, director of product and solution management for Ingersoll Rand. "With two new compatible products to connect with Nexia, consumers can further customize their systems over time as their lives get busier and their needs change."

Expanded System Features

Nexia™ Home Intelligence offers several system enhancements that make it easier to use the latest technologies. The new account setup process asks consumers which products they wish to include in their systems and then customizes the entire experience based on their needs. The online setup process is embedded with how-to and set-up instructions, step-by-step videos, FAQs, helpful tips and detailed troubleshooting assistance. In addition, homeowners can now perform various video monitoring functions from their mobile devices, including recording home video, downloading recorded video or watching recorded video.

"The beauty of the Nexia System is that consumers can continuously shape their home automation needs to control their house the way they want to, from anywhere they happen to be," Samolinski said.

Subscription Pricing Enhancements

Experiencing the benefits of Nexia™ Home Intelligence is easier than ever with the introduction of several pricing enhancements. Now, included with the purchase of a Trane ComfortLink™ II Control is the ability to remotely control the home's temperature, set heating and cooling schedules, and receive alerts when it's time to change filters or schedule maintenance. As a user decides to expand his or her Nexia System and home monitoring capabilities with the addition of a Nexia Home Bridge and other products, then the standard $8.99 monthly subscription fee will apply.

Additionally, live video recording is included with the purchase of a Schlage Home Indoor Camera. This allows consumers to view live video on their computers or mobile devices without a monthly fee and they can choose to add video recording functionality to their account starting at $2.99 per month.

The standard Nexia Home Bridge standard subscription plan provides consumers with the ability to take full advantage of all of the remote management capabilities Nexia offers.
