MOBILE, AL (April 4, 2016) - CentraLite Systems, a leading provider of products that enable a connected world, announces that its Pearl Thermostat and 3-Series Smart Outlet are now compatible with People Power's Presence Security system and Presence home monitoring app.

People Power is a Silicon Valley-based, people-centric software company offering a full suite of products that enable energy management, security and senior care service providers to offer connected home services to their customers. People Power's Presence app, which transforms a tablet or smartphone into a free Internet security camera, is built on a "freemium" model.

"We are excited to be able to offer CentraLite products as part of our Presence hardware ecosystem," said People Power president and CTO, David Moss. "CentraLite is a recognized market leader in the IoT space. We want to work with companies like CentraLite that deliver, extremely reliable, innovative and beautifully designed products -- the type of products that our service provider customers are demanding."
CentraLite's Pearl Thermostat combines contemporary aesthetics with easy-to-use controls and a capacitive touch display. When paired with an Internet-connected ZigBee HA 1.2 hub, or connected to People Power's cloud software through a gateway, the Pearl lets users remotely control their heating and cooling. It can also report humidity and temperature down to 0.1 C, providing an accurate view of HVAC performance.
CentraLite's 3-Series Smart Outlet delivers simple, low-cost appliance and lamp control with energy reporting. By placing the Smart Outlet between an outlet and any device or appliance, users can instantly add advanced automation features. It can also be used with an existing ZigBee hub or the People Power cloud software to respond to alerts, schedules and scenes, and can report power usage for energy management.
Said CentraLite vice president and CTO, John Calagaz, "CentraLite's connected products are a natural fit for People Power's powerful Presence Security IoT solution. As part of Presence Security hardware packages, CentraLite devices will be providing People Power's global utilities and energy services customer base with the ability to offer an expanded ecosystem with products that enhance control, convenience and cost-savings."
