Lorex Releases All-in-One Home Monitoring Solution
The solution allows users to control Lorex wireless cameras, door/window sensors and motion sensors all from the same touchscreen.
ONTARIO, Canada — Lorex Technology announces its latest product, the Lorex Home Center, a smart, all-in-one home monitoring solution the company says was designed to modernize and simplify the home security experience.
The Lorex Home Center features a touchscreen interface that connects with a variety of Lorex wireless products, allowing customers to tailor and expand their security system to meet personalized needs.
The device hosts a variety of features that focus on keeping users’ recordings and information private and secure, according to the company.
“We are incredibly excited and proud to launch the Lorex Home Center, this is something we’ve been developing for a long time and is the introduction to our highly anticipated IoT product line,” says Ilan Gershon, director of product strategy & development. “We’ve created a system that works with a multitude of Lorex products and we will continue to build upon this platform to bring more exciting features and capabilities in the foreseeable future.”
The Lorex Home Center will initially be bundled with two smart indoor/outdoor 1080p WiFi cameras. These smart cameras include features like two-way talk, person and vehicle detection, and color night vision. When paired with the Lorex Home Center, customers can easily control their home security and instantly be notified of any movement detected on their property, according to the company.
Customers will be able to expand and tailor their systems to their needs with a variety of Lorex wireless cameras and accessories, including indoor and outdoor WiFi cameras, sensors, video doorbell, floodlight and soon to be released wire-free cameras.
The Lorex Home Center also allows users to control, view and customize settings using a touchscreen interface and the Lorex voice assistant. Using the voice assistant feature, users can control their security with voice commands like, “show me the front door camera”. Or, if a recap of the day’s events is desired, “show me all motion events from 1-3 p.m. on the backyard camera.”
“This is just the beginning of the innovative IoT home security products Lorex plans to release,” Gershon adds. “Our customers drive us to create innovative, reliable and easy-to-use security systems that provide peace of mind, and integrate property monitoring seamlessly into their day.”
The Lorex Home Center has different safeguard options that promote privacy, such as a lens cover for the built-in camera, the disconnect microphone function for the Lorex voice assistant and the ability to disable viewing and recording for connected cameras quickly and easily with “privacy mode” settings.
In addition, the Lorex Home Center includes security-grade local storage, which helps keep recordings private and secure. The Lorex Home app provides remote access to the Lorex Home Center to view live and recorded video. Additional features include weather forecast, photo frame functionality and music streaming capabilities.
Lorex was acquired by FLIR in 2012 in a cash deal worth about $60 million. The company was then sold to Dahua in 2018 for approximately $29 million in cash.
