IHIJI TAKES REMOTE MONITORING AND SUPPORT TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH CONTROL4 HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEMS AND ZIGBEE DEVICE MONITORING CAPABILITY
Easy Integration; Offers Extended Visibility into Home Networks
Austin, TX – April 5, 2011 – ihiji, creator of the award-winning remote monitoring and support system invision, today announced that it now offers feature-rich compatibility with Control4® home automation systems and ZigBee devices. ihiji invision enables integrators to reduce servicing costs and increase system reliability while simultaneously empowering dealers to earn recurring revenue through the implementation of service contracts.
“Dealers will now be able to monitor many aspects of Control4 installations with ihiji invision, including ZigBee devices,” said ihiji president and co-founder Stuart Rench. “This represents a significant opportunity for all Control4 and ihiji dealers. They can now approach new or existing clients with a proactive remote monitoring and support solution that integrates easily and ensures improved system reliability and performance through extended device visibility.”
invision is a cloud-based remote monitoring and support system that enables 24/7 two-way communication with control, entertainment, network, HVAC lighting products and more. ihiji developed invision from the ground up, therefore retaining total control over the product roadmap. This unique advantage allows for the swift addition of features and enhancements to invision, while not burdening dealers with the added cost attributed to third-party licensing fees; making it the most cost-effective and feature-rich monitoring solution on the market today.
“Control4 has long held the view that in order to drive home automation adoption, everything in the home must work together,” said Eric Smith, CTO and co-founder of Control4. “The ihiji invision system will help our dealers provide higher levels of customer service and reduce the cost of their support infrastructure by proactively monitoring system interactions and reporting any deviations.”
“We are thrilled by this announcement,“ said 2010 MVP Control4 dealer Keith W. Harrison of Total Home Technologies in Roseland, New Jersey. “We have been installing ihiji invision more and more, as it builds significant value into our service offering. ihiji invision not only details important information about our systems, it also allows us to deliver a more reliable solution for our customers, day-in and day-out. It gives us a strategic edge and makes us look like heroes.”
