Intamac launches Halo range
This week Intamac launched a range of connected home products and services for the UK consumer market under a new brand, Halo. With the current holiday season in mind, one of the ways Intamac promoted the launch was to have "burglars" prowling the streets of London handing our flyers with the message "Who's watching your home when you are away?". With the holiday season still in full flow, this is typically a time of year that opportunistic burglars try to take advantage of, by watching for the tell-tale signs that a property has been left unoccupied
The launch also promoted the special introductory offer that is available until the 30th of September, which offers customers £50 off their basket when purchasing from the Halo Shop. To take advantage of this special offer simply enter the discount code INT1025 when you purchase your Halo products.
Halo is an easy-to-install home monitoring solution that allows consumers to remotely monitor and control their homes from anywhere in the world through a cloud-based platform accessed over the web or smartphone. Already a leading global provider of connected home technology to the telecoms, security and utility industries, Intamac enters the consumer arena for the first time with Halo.
“We are working to provide new levels of protection for people and their property,” said Kevin Meagher, CEO, Intamac. “By harnessing the power of the web we have developed a simple to use, easy to install and affordable product that can easily be scaled from a basic alarm with extras to a powerful home monitoring and control system. Halo is just the starting point; we are working to give consumers complete control of their home wherever they are in the world.”
Halo comprises a complete range of wireless, simple to use and affordable products for the home through a cloud-based service. The products communicate wirelessly over fixed or mobile broadband and are monitored or controlled using a slick widget driven GUI. Should an alert be triggered, rather than trying to alert the police or passers-by, the system instantly notifies the homeowner, or those that have been nominated by the homeowner, via SMS, email, Twitter and voice call.
