Nortek Security & Control Launches the Numera Home Safety Hub, Blending Mobile Personal Safety and Fall Detection with Home Security

New hybrid hub blends home security with PERS and works with 2GIG home control sensors for a total smart home security and personal safety solution.

Carlsbad, CA- March 31, 2016 - Nortek Security & Control LLC, a Nortek Company (NASDAQ: NTK) and a leader in the security, smart home and wellness technology markets, introduces the Numera® Home Safety Hub, a next-generation PERS system. The hub combines information from sensing devices such as CO and smoke detectors, and glass-break, motion and window/door sensors with alerts from wireless personal emergency sensors in a single PERS console for seniors or others needing support while living alone. The Numera Home Safety Hub communicates with the array of 2GIG® sensors and creates a self-designated safety ecosystem that delivers user and environmental data to their care team.


The Numera Home Safety Hub integration with connected wireless security sensors represents an evolution of personal safety technology in the home. With complementary lightweight wearables and an upgradeable ecosystem, the Numera Home Safety Hub ensures a safer and more protected home for seniors and families. The Home Safety Hub features upgradeable firmware, a range up to 1,000 feet, customizable "night-time," "do-not disturb" and personalized activity windows, along with full compatibility with personal safety and 2GIG home sensors. The hub is easily installed and set up, reducing field time, complexity and cost.

With the included Personal Help Button, assistance is just a discreet button push away, and with remote alerts of a potential fire or fall in the home, help is summoned even when the user cannot react. Creating interoperability between the smart home and personal safety devices provides caregivers with notifications of events that require their involvement, including a smoke alarm, detection of a potential fall or prolonged inactivity during a certain period of time. It also enables activity control when used with door and motion sensors, where caregivers could receive an alert if the door is opened and motion detected at a time that would cause for concern such as late at night or during unsafe weather conditions.

"Creating the ability for communication between our personal safety device and home and security sensors gives caregivers more complete ways to ensure the well-being of their loved ones," said Tim Smokoff, group vice president health & wellness, Nortek Security & Control. "With this new hub and access to more information about their environment, users and their care teams can rest easier and feel more comfortable about their loved ones dealing with chronic illness or aging-in-place."
