The partnership enables Voxcom to distribute advanced web, mobile and
in-home monitoring services through its established and diversified
retail channels and wholesale dealer networks. Voxcom’s new services
combine
iControl’s tri-mode security network (broadband, cellular
and POTS access) with enhanced IP video to take home security and
monitoring to an entirely new level.

Voxcom’s Active Response
Monitoring (ARM) solution, a monitoring, notification and video
services platform, will be integrated with iControl’s iHub technology:
a home security router that plugs into the home network and connects
wirelessly to security panels, IP cameras, sensors, and Z-Wave-based
home automation devices (such as lighting, door locks, thermostats,
etc.).

The iControl solution provides both broadband and cellular
access to customers’ home security systems enabling traditional
security monitoring and advanced functionality: remote access to live
and event-based video, home control, and security panel operation from
the web and mobile phone. Customers also receive automated
notifications via email, SMS text message or a phone call when events occur, enabling users to stay connected to their home or business when away.

“iControl’s
innovative ‘Home Security 2.0’ solution, combined with the strength of
Voxcom’s distribution networks and central stations, provides a
ground-breaking home monitoring solution that is exceptionally easy to
use and requires less technical management and fewer calls for field
service,” says Russell Keddie, vice-president of business development
at Voxcom. “The flexibility and reliable nature of the solution from
this partnership makes it a winning option for marketing partners,
dealers and homeowners alike.”
