Raleigh, NC and Palo Alto, CA–Telit Wireless Solutions Inc., the U.S.-based machine-to-machine (M2M) mobile technology arm of Telit Communications PLC, and iControl Networks, the first provider of consumer-focused ‘Home Security 2.0’ solutions, will incorporate Telits cellular technology into iControls market-changing interactive Home Security solution. Telits M2M module with anti-jamming features adds unmatched cellular back-up capabilities to iControls platform, offering home protection companies and service providers a complete next generation home security solution.
By utilizing Telits GE864-QUAD GSM/GPRS module, iControls Home Security 2.0 solution will now also offer reliable cellular backup. Telits M2M module will be integrated into iControls iHub technology, a home security router that plugs into the home network and wirelessly connects to security panels, IP cameras, sensors, and Z-Wave-based home control devices (such as lighting, door locks, thermostats, etc.). The iControl solution provides both web and mobile access to customers home security systems, enabling traditional security monitoring with advanced functionality such as remote access to video, home control, and security panel operations from the web and mobile phone. With Telits M2M module, consumers will experience uninterrupted connectivity to their home when their homes phone and broadband connections are down.
In addition, the module supports cellular communications to a central monitoring station if the phone and broadband connections are unable to send emergency alert information from the home security system. Telits Jamming Detection & Report feature ensures that both the consumer and the central monitoring station are alerted when the cellular signal is threatened by a jamming device or other network disturbance.
We are very excited to offer our service provider partners an interactive home security solution that provides enhanced peace-of-mind to their customers, said Reza Raji, founder, president and COO of iControl Networks. Through our partnership with Telit, we have developed a home security solution with an always-on connection even in the event of malfunction or cut in the telephone line or broadband service. Telits superior cellular backup module with its anti-jamming technology is ideal for iControls next generation Home Security 2.0 solution.
iControl recognized the demand for an unwired connection and enhanced its solution by integrating our cellular module, said Roger Dewey, President of Telit Wireless Solutions – Americas. Home intruders will no longer be able to just snip a cord to disconnect a home security system, they will have to contend with the nearly universal coverage of a cellular network.
The Telit module will relay data to the home security provider via GPRS when the wired telephone line or broadband connection is lost. Production versions of iControls iHub home security router with Telit module are now shipping to partner home security, broadband and telecommunications providers in the United States and Canada.
