iControl Networks, Inc. just announced that it has launched version 2.0 of its award-winning product and service. The enhanced iControl home monitoring solution is Z-Wave-enabled, giving you a service that works on top of existing, off-the-shelf devices that can be purchased at most home improvement stores. The new product and service boasts an intuitive Web portal user interface, a Web-based wizard for the set up, an advanced mobile portal and an improved gateway design.
In addition to offering the product and service via its Web site, iControl is currently trialing the new solution with major service providers, including utilities, Internet service providers, telcos, cable companies, MSOs and wireless carriers.
With iControl, you’ll have a personal portal that can be accessed via a Web browser, PDA or cell phone to configure and manage the service from anywhere, at anytime. Through off-the-shelf wireless cameras, sensors, light modules and other devices placed around a home or business, you can get information about alarms, view or take pictures, and control and manage devices. Furthermore, iControl delivers real-time information via email or text messages when devices are triggered, rather than forcing them to track it down.
