Essence has significantly enhanced the features of its award-winning WeR@Home Multi-service Connected Home platform. WeR@Home is now one of the first Smart Home solutions that let consumers receive alerts, control their home security, and manage their home automation from their Apple Watches.
This version of WeR@Home allows service providers to offer tiered activity levels, increasing the flexibility of their offerings. Meanwhile, the Multi-Place feature gives end-users the ability to control and manage more than one location from a single smartphone app.
With the Apple Watch application, WeR@Home users can take care of things on the go:
- Arm and disarm the system in all the pre-set arming modes
- Receive event notifications
- Control their Z-Wave home automation and energy management devices
- Create shortcuts that allow them to quickly perform functions such as running Smart Automation rules or getting peace of mind by taking videos from the cameras
“Consumers want complete control of their home where they want it. The Apple Watch application enhances the customer usability,” said Dr. Haim Amir, Essence Chairman & CEO. “Meanwhile, for service providers, we've designed the newest features so they have the option to introduce services with a basic package and then offer premium services without any integration or custom programming requirements and available on the most advanced devices. They can also structure their service packages by values such as security, energy, or child care.”
WeR@Home offers a seamless connected-home experience for security, safety and remote home management. Featuring cloud-to-cloud and Z-wave-based integration, WeR@Home lets consumers control more than 1,000 devices – everything from security and nanny cams to stereos and thermostats. The features provided in the basic and premium service offerings are defined in advance, allowing different levels of automation rules capabilities in accordance with the customers' wishes.
