HomeRemote is an affordable, easy-to-use system that lets users control their household appliances and lighting both from within their homes and from anywhere in the world via a standard Internet web browser or mobile phone.
For added security, HomeRemote also allows users to monitor their home with live video from HomeRemote Wireless Video Cameras (HRNC1). HomeRemote also lets users tailor their homes for personal comfort and control within minutes.
HomeRemote is also accessible through a mobile phone using the HomeRemote Cell-Link service.
