VTech Launches New Smart Home Wireless Monitoring System with Cordless Telephone and Garage Door and Open/Closed Sensors

Comprehensive capabilities offer consumer-friendly monitoring and peace of mind for homeowners

BEAVERTON, Ore., Oct. 20, 2015 -- VTech understands that true peace of mind comes when you know what's going on at home. Today, VTech Communications, Inc announced the availability and launch of its Wireless Monitoring System with Cordless Telephone and Garage Door and Open/Closed Sensors (VC7151-109), providing homeowners an affordable home monitoring technology as easy to use as it is comprehensive.

This easy-to-install system features smart home capabilities, providing state-of-the-art monitoring for every corner of the home. With the garage door sensor, homeowners can receive alerts on the handsets and base when their garage door is up or is opened during certain hours. The open/closed sensor allows them to keep tabs on areas like doors, cabinets and windows, and receive an alert when they open, protecting the things homeowners value most.

Notifications are visual and auditory throughout the home, so consumers need not be tethered to any one particular place or device for updates on what's going on anywhere in the house. And, alerts can either be set to go off every time a status change is detected, or users can select certain timing parameters for their notifications. Alerts aside, consumers can also - at any time - check the status of the sensors using the phone menu.

"Every homeowner wants to feel secure and comfortable at home. And when considering a smart home wireless monitoring system, consumers shouldn't be limited by their tech-savviness - or lack thereof," said Matt Ramage, Senior Vice President of Sales and Product Management, VTech. "That's why we've designed this new consumer-friendly Wireless Monitoring System that brings smart home capabilities into the homes of all consumers."

In addition to smart home monitoring capabilities, the VTech VC7151-109 Wireless Home Monitoring System with Cordless Telephone and Garage Door and Open/Closed Sensors is also a fully-featured telephone with built-in answering system. It features Caller ID Announce so you can hear who's calling without running to the phone. With up to 22 minutes of recording time and a digital answering system voice set-up guide, you can be confident you won't miss a message. This system is expandable up to five cordless handsets and 400 sensors.
