Remote Network Monitoring and Support Solutions Provider ihiji joins Control4 Marketplace

Products to Enhance Network Functionality and Interoperability for Residential and Commercial Installations Now Available For 24/7/365 Online Purchase By Control4 Integrators in the US and Canada

Austin, TX - October 12, 2012 - Remote monitoring and support powerhouse ihiji recently joined the Control4 Marketplace, a move that will immediately benefit Control4® and ihiji integrators in the US and Canada by making ihiji products available for direct online ordering through the Control4 Marketplace. The Marketplace is an online ordering portal that allows Control4 resellers to put Control4 and third-party partner products on the same purchase order, which simplifies sourcing, shipment, and back-end accounting processes.

The ihiji invision remote monitoring and support solution enables integrators to eliminate wasteful and expensive service-related expenditures and instead focus their energies where they can be most beneficial, by proactively providing them peace of mind that the systems they install and maintain are functioning properly. Through a series of established thresholds and associated messaging protocol, integrators are alerted whenever a deviation is reported by the ihiji invision system. They can then identify the origin and nature of the issue and determine the best course of action, which can oftentimes be remotely resolved rather than incurring the additional expense of rolling a truck.

"Now that ihiji products are available for purchase through the Control4 Marketplace, Control4 integrators can easily standardize remote monitoring and support on every Control4 system and order, which enables them to keep a constant watch on the health of their processors, touch panels and ZigBee networks. Additionally, it provides a valuable network management solution that allows the integrators to truly own the network as well as the next generation of products and services that will leverage it," said ihiji vice president of technical operations, Michael Maniscalco.

Chosen to participate in the Control4 Marketplace in part for their exceptional performance and interoperability, ihiji products enhance a Control4 dealer's offering by allowing them to provide their customers with seamlessly integrated, 24/7/365 remote network monitoring and support services. These added capabilities can reduce service calls, increase job profitability, and deliver next-level diagnostics enabling reported to be be addressed in the most efficient manner possible, ensuring systems continue to function as they were originally designed.

Control4 and ihiji are hosting a joint webinar for integrators on Tuesday, October 16th at 2pm Central Time, which will provide details about ihiji's inclusion in the Control4 Marketplace and associated information to facilitate integrator success. Integrators who would like to learn more about the webinar or the Control4 Marketplace are urged to contact either ihiji or their local Control4 representative.
