Icontrol Networks, the company behind widely-distributed interactive security and home automation platform in the industry, announced support for the popular Interlogix Simon XT/XTi line of security panels on its Icontrol One solution. This marks the set of panels supported by Icontrol One, a home automation solution that offers levels of performance and reliability proven with large service providers, but with a business model tailored for independent security dealers.
More than 485,000 Simon XT/XTi security panels installed with 2G radios will need to be upgraded to 3G. Leveraging the Novatel Wireless MiFi Secure SA 1100 radio module, dealers using Icontrol One can bring homeowners 3G connectivity while offering interactive security and home automation functionality for less cost than upgrading to a standalone 3G radio module.
As the technology behind major service provider smart home solutions, including ADT Pulse and Xfinity Home, Icontrol software manages more than 26 million sensors and devices, and the platform will manage more than 100 billion activities worldwide. Icontrol One makes this technology available to independent security dealers for the first time.
