We view this market segment as a beachhead for the underlying INSTEON wireless home control networking technology
LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) March 29, 2007
The DSC Home (http://www.dsc.com) bundle includes DSC's PowerSeries control panel and LCD keypad, motion detector, thermostat, surveillance camera, SmartLabs Design (http://www.smartlabsinc.com/smartlabsdesign.html) lighting control system with INSTEON http://www.insteon.net (http://www.insteon.net) technology, and multi-room home entertainment and multimedia leveraging Microsoft Windows XP Media Center, LifeWare digital entertainment and automation software from Exceptional Innovation (http://www.exceptionalinnovation.com) and the HP Digital Entertainment Center and High Definition LCD TV.
"It makes perfect sense to introduce DSC Home at ISC West with this year's focus on the 'Smarthome'," said Ken Fairbanks, vice president of business development, SmartLabs, an industry leader in home automation and control. "Security dealers have an enormous opportunity to add home automation and control to their security solutions and we're pleased to be working with industry leader DSC."
"We view this market segment as a beachhead for the underlying INSTEON wireless home control networking technology," continued Fairbanks. "Any device embedded with the INSTEON technology can be added to the network without pulling additional wires; offering a recurring revenue stream and up-sell opportunities for the security industry."
SmartLabs Design INSTEON-enabled lighting control products will be demonstrated in the DSC booth 24001-25001 at the Sands Convention and Expo Center in Las Vegas March 28-30, 2007.
