Interlogix® announces new features and components of its UltraSync™ SmartHome system that will provide homeowners with more convenient, improved home security and automation solutions. Hands-free voice control, second-generation, high-definition cameras, an LTE cellular module and a soon-to-be-released doorbell camera will be on display at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in booth #40344.
Interlogix is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
Now compatible with Amazon’s Alexa-enabled Echo® digital assistant, UltraSync system users can enjoy voice command of many of their home appliances while maintaining professional-grade security features.
“The award-winning UltraSync system continues to make managing home automation and security easier and more convenient,” said Michael Chiavacci, general manager, Interlogix, North America. “Now, using only their voice and an Alexa-enabled device, homeowners can control lights, thermostats and many other Z-Wave®-enabled appliances that have been programmed into the system.”
Interlogix is also introducing two new UltraSync second-generation cameras. Both the indoor desktop and outdoor bullet models feature high-definition resolution. The cameras provide live video and have onboard memory cards for easy access to recorded video. The new units complement the existing UltraSync indoor/outdoor mini-wedge camera.
Interlogix is also previewing its UltraSync doorbell camera at CES. Available this spring, the camera features a built-in speaker and microphone providing homeowners with the ability to use their UltraSync mobile app to hear and speak with visitors at the door without leaving the couch or from anywhere in the world.
The UltraSync Smart Home system can also be controlled via an optional 7-inch touch screen or a voice-guided menu on the self-contained hub. Additionally, the UltraSync hub is now available with an optional LTE cellular module, which can serve as a backup for homeowners using IP technology or as an alternative to Wi-Fi.
Current UltraSync users can contact their security dealer to get an over-the-air update of their systems. The latest version of the UltraSync mobile application also features quick reference videos that help homeowners learn more about system operations and setup in a convenient and intuitive way.
