MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls announces the immediate availability of the DSC iotega, its next generation wireless security and automation solution designed to provide safer and smarter living for homes and small businesses.
The iotega features built-in PowerG wireless technology that provides a fully encrypted security system that secures homes and businesses while including remote interactive smart services, allowing new revenue streams for security dealers, according to the company.
Discrete in design, iotega includes a vanishing touch keypad, as well as an optional 7” WiFi enabled touchscreen, wireless keypad arming station and flexible software app compatibility.
Configuration of devices, system diagnostics, and upgrades can be handled remotely, while a user-replaceable battery ensures that end-user support and maintenance needs are minimized.
iotega allows end-users to view cameras, lock doors, adjust temperature, switch on/off lights and enables a wide range of other home automation features. These actions can be implemented on demand or by set scenes and schedules, powered by SecureNet’s app.
For installers, the SecureNet platform offers a system management portal and an iOS and Android compatible mobile app that can be customized for dealer brand enhancement and additional revenue opportunities. Johnson Controls says the SecureNet platform is fully integrated with security monitoring stations.
iotega supports multiple wired and wireless technologies, including PowerG 2-way encrypted wireless sensors, Ethernet, WiFi, Z-Wave Plus and cellular (3G and LTE) upgrade, providing end-users with flexible options for their home automation network.
