iControl Networks Launches New Self-Installable Smart Home and Lifestyle Solution

 iControl Networks announced iControl Touchstone™, a new self-installable, self-managed smart home solution for broadband service providers focused on lifestyle services. iControl Touchstone is powered by iControl's award-winning OpenHome™ software platform, and offers a connected home experience that consumers can install and manage themselves. iControl Touchstone will be initially deployed across the U.S. by Comcast as Xfinity Home Control.

iControl Touchstone enables service providers to offer consumers a full range of innovative home management and monitoring services. As a self-installable solution, it opens the door for new distribution opportunities, including online and retail, which are desirable alternatives for broadband service providers seeking an initial go-to-market offering.

iControl Touchstone provides innovative home monitoring, comfort, control, automation and energy management, and can be assembled and installed by the end-user, eliminating the need for a professionally trained technician. iControl Touchstone allows customers to:

  • Stay connected to their homes with live video feed and event-driven video capture via in-home cameras, enabling them to see what’s happening while they’re away.
  • Remotely control and manage their homes with the power to turn on/off lights and appliances and adjust thermostat temperature via the web or mobile applications.
  • Customize their systems by scheduling personalized, automated alerts, for example, to confirm when the kids arrive home from school, which generate email and text alerts with optional photo/video clip.
  • Go green with energy-saving thermostat, lighting and small appliance control and automation.
