DSC’s PowerSeries Neo hybrid security platform offers secure communications while offering installers and homeowners the flexibility of wireless installation. “State of the art security systems such as DSC’s PowerSeries Neo, when integrated with the Control4 system, provide customers with unequaled comfort and entertainment and take safety and security to an entirely new level,” said Paul Williams, vice president of solutions at Control4. “Leveraging the home’s automated features that can be triggered by events from the Power Series Neo delivers peace of mind to Control4 homeowners whether they are home or away.” “The integration of PowerSeries Neo with the Control4 platform gives our security dealer customers access to an expanded portfolio of state-of-the-art home automation solutions,” said Tim Myers, product line director of Intrusion, Tyco Security. “We are able to maximize the potential of DSC’s PowerSeries Neo in the residential space and our partnership with a high-caliber home automation specialist such as Control4 perfectly aligns with Tyco Security Products’ multiple-partner strategy for integrated solutions.” Control4 integrates with PowerSeries Neo security systems through Control4’s OS 2.8. With a recently redesigned user interface, the Control4 platform offers easy and comprehensive control over the security system. Arming or disarming PowerSeries Neo or alerting emergency response units can be done with a single tap on touch screens, TV remotes, smart tablets, mobile phones, and Apple Watch. Via the app, customers can monitor cameras, lock doors, adjust thermostats, close garage doors, and turn off the lights from potentially anywhere in the world. In addition, homeowners can monitor and personalize their access to their home and also search, browse, listen to and watch media as well as tap into features such as Mockupancy, a new capability that automatically mimics a household’s normal routines, such as turning on and off lights and opening and closing window blinds while a homeowner is away. As part of the integration, product and solution training will be available to PowerSeries Neo installers.
