Award-winning ihiji invision system extensively updated to provide expanded remote network monitoring and management capabilities

AUSTIN, TX and DENVER, CO (CEDIA Expo booth #3459) - September 25, 2013 - ihiji announced today the addition of nearly 100 new features to its award winning cloud-based remote network monitoring and management system, ihiji invision. These extensive additions and enhancements provide even more valuable resources to technology integrators and IT professionals, further assisting them in improving efficiencies and creating a sustainable stream of recurring revenue. The newly increased versatility of the ihiji invision system facilitates remote management, monitoring and maintenance capabilities of an even wider variety of technologies deployed in the field than ever before.


Several of ihiji's newest features will be showcased at the 2013 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colo., from September 26 to 28. Included are ihiji invision's expanded IT support tools that increase visibility and provide secure access to remote installations. Other additions include new manufacturer integrations, detailed user permissions, Power over Ethernet (PoE) reboots and robust remote management functionalities. ihiji will also be sharing new and improved ways to economically implement its services and will discuss the many benefits that can be derived through Client Care Plans, such as those that ihiji launched earlier this year.

ihiji's NetNinjas will also be on display. The NetNinjas are a powerful set of features that allow for simple, one-click, cloud-based reboots of devices such as routers, switches, control processors, PoE devices, IP power devices, and touch panels - all from within the ihiji invision system. ConnectNinja is the newest addition to the NetNinjas suite and is used to establish a secure remote connection with any device on a customer's network. This support mechanism will provide full remote access to integrators and eliminates the need for complex VPN connections or insecure port forwarding. The ConnectNinja also complements the ihiji invision portal's newer features, such as fully enabled manageable user permissions across individual sites, which is used to heighten secure site access control.

Furthermore, ihiji has developed new integrations to enable cloud-based monitoring and remote reboot capabilities for DirecTV and Sonos devices as well as products from companies such as SnapAV, Panamax, Middle Atlantic, Pakedge, Planet, Control4, Crestron, Richard Gray's Power Company and more. "At ihiji, our primary focus is to facilitate a far more robust and secure environment for integrators working in the residential, commercial, and information technology channels." said ihiji Vice President of Technology, Michael Maniscalco. "We've worked tirelessly over the last year to deliver on the promises we've made, providing scalable, cloud-based technologies that will best support the fully converged AV/ IT marketplace." ihiji's new features focus on the critical task of providing technology integrators and IT Professionals more transparency as to the status of connected devices while improving security in their system core management.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
