Smart Watches, Home Control Converge

Home-control capabilities are coming to smart watches.

iControl Networks plans to offer an app for Samsung’s Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches to control thermostats, lighting systems, alarms and door locks connected to its connected-home solutions.

iControl’s products and services are offered by Comcast and Time Warner Cable.

The app will be available for the watches when they become available in April.

The Samsung Gear 2 Neo and Gear 2 become available April 11 at $199 and $299, respectively.

For now, iControl continues to focus on sales through service providers and security companies, but “iControl feels that retail will play a greater role in connected home solution distribution in the near future,” a spokesperson said. The company’s focus for now, however, “is to continue to provide solutions through service providers and security companies that may choose to leverage this channel.”
