Intamac and D-Link demonstrate a new generation of home monitoring solutions at CONNECTIONS Digital Living Showcase & Conference
Intamac CEO Kevin Meagher is a guest speaker on the ‘Energy Management as Key Application for Home Control’ panel.
Connected Home specialist Intamac Systems Ltd has partnered with global CE device manufacturer D-Link, to develop a new range of IP based home monitoring solutions for global service providers. The companies will be demonstrating these innovative products and services at the CONNECTIONS™ Digital Living Showcase & Conference, on 8-10 June at the Santa Clara Convention Centre, CA. The D-Link products are supported by Intamac’s intelligent cloud-based platform to provide home security, energy management, home automation, video and telecare solutions. The companies are working together to offer service providers and utilities a complete turnkey solution which reduces the time taken to deploy these new value-added service bundles. Their solutions can be integrated with third party Zigbee or Zwave devices, allowing consumers to select from a broader range of products and interactive services to remotely monitor and control their homes.
The D-Link Home Monitoring Starter Kit is an easy-to-use home security system which can be self-installed in just 30 minutes. A range of in-home sensors wirelessly report data to the system control unit, which itself is connected to the home broadband router. The remote monitoring service is managed and controlled through a personalized web portal account powered by Intamac, which the end-user consumer can access at mydlink.com. A range of sensors such as infrared motion detectors, door/window contacts and more can be added to the system, and the kit’s control unit reports all information directly to the mydlink platform, with alerts instantly relayed by SMS, email and voice call to the consumer and their designated contacts.
A home video option is available with D-Link IP cameras, which can capture and record events with remote access to the footage available through the website or cell phones, and forthcoming Energy Monitoring capability with smart-plugs offering remote control to help reduce energy consumption in the home devices will also be previewed .
Kevin Meagher, Founder CEO of Intamac Systems, will also be a guest speaker on the ‘Energy Management as Key Application for Home Controls’ panel, scheduled for Wednesday 9th June at 1.30pm. He’ll be contributing to the discussion on how the surge in demand for energy management solutions can open up further opportunities for the wider connected home market. In particular, the panel will examine the critical factors to drive mass-market acceptance, including:
- Leveraging the momentum of energy management initiatives
- Integrating energy management with Home Controls
- Whole-home solutions including Security, home CCTV, Social Care and more.
“The Connected Home is fast becoming a reality,” said Kevin Meagher from Intamac: “Consumers want to be able to control all appliances and services in their homes, from wherever they are and from their fixed and mobile devices. Our partnership with D-Link has allowed us to develop and commercialise a range of innovative new products and services, at previously unavailable price points. The flexible nature of our platform gives consumers an entry level connected home proposition, which they can easily expand to suit their individual needs”.
