Mar 23, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Rogers Communications, a Canadian communications and media company, has launched Rogers Smart Home Monitoring, a home security and home automation control system, to residents of Ontario's Golden Horseshoe.
Rogers Smart Home Monitoring allows customers to control and automate their home security, lights, cameras, thermostats and appliances remotely through their smartphone, computer or tablet, the company said.
"We're thrilled to now offer Rogers Smart Home Monitoring to residents of the Golden Horseshoe," said Ian Pattinson, Vice-President & General Manager, Rogers Smart Home Monitoring. "Since we launched a year and a half ago, our customers continue to discover new system features that keep their homes and families secure while helping them better manage their daily lives for ultimate peace of mind."
The system remotely monitors everything together from water leaks, carbon monoxide levels, cameras, lighting, appliances and thermostat temperatures, and allows customers to customize automation rules to their needs, the company added.
According to the company, a customer is able to detect a water leak early and prevent flooding in their basement, and come home to a warm house every day by timing the thermostat through their smartphone, or receive an alert on their smartphone when their kids have arrived home from school, Smart Home Monitoring offers customers a truly connected home experience.
At the heart of the system is a touchpad that provides access to home automation apps, multimedia apps for photos, traffic, weather and sports, and home security functions. When an alarm occurs, the touchpad instantly connects with the Rogers Central Monitoring Station, a 24/7, real-time monitoring service provided by certified security experts, the company reported.
"Canadians are among the most connected people in the world and are looking for seamless technology that complements their busy lifestyles," Pattinson said. "For nearly two years, Rogers Smart Home Monitoring has enabled customers to stay connected to their homes and families with a next generation, innovative product that leverages Rogers proven networks and communication expertise."
