In selecting Lagotek, Zuri Hector of One Main Street Partners LLC said, "Lagotek offers a high-end solution that is reliable and affordable. We are happy to partner with Lagotek to build the living space of the future. Integration of intelligence and entertainment is the future for homes and we are happy to be the pioneers in offering this level of service to our customers today. We understand the value of differentiating our product and the shift in consumer expectations, along with being able to offer a more eco-friendly living environment."
Eugene Luskin, CEO of Lagotek, stated, "Lagotek is all about providing smarter homes for better living. Seeing the vision of affordable automation in every home coming true in Lagotek's hometown is very exciting. Home automation provides convenience, comfort, energy savings, and a new level of security. These are important features that are appreciated by today's more discerning home owners. Visionary residential and multi-dwelling developers like One Main Street Partners are making this a reality for their fortunate buyers."
Lagotek's Home Intelligence Platform (HIP) automates lighting, distributed audio, media center control, video monitoring, zoned climate control and security system integration, with additional applications continuously under development. Homeowners manage their home's systems using a simple, but elegant, interface running on Lagotek HIP100(TM) touch screen panels, and can also do so through PCs, Ultra Mobile PCs or Wi-Fi capable PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants).
One of the most exciting features is Lagotek's new cell phone access application. It allows you to see what is going on inside your home and control the main functions of the home from your mobile phone.(1) Forget to turn something off? No problem--just do it with a cell phone. Not sure? Just check it. Is the baby ok? Check the baby camera from anywhere! Have the kids gone to bed on time while the parents are enjoying a night out? They can check without even calling home! This application provides tremendous convenience and peace of mind.
Lagotek's Modes and Rules simplify the user's everyday life by allowing the user to set all the included systems in the home to the desired settings by pressing just one button. No more running around the whole house to turn everything off at night. Just touch the "good night" mode. Set the rule to turn on lights, heat, music, etc. to your desired settings when you come home, linked to your garage door opener. The objective is to make the system extremely convenient and as automated as possible to minimize the need for unnecessary human interaction.
Dual Wireless Technology is Key to Bringing Home Automation to Every Home
Unlike previous home automation solutions that were server-based and hard-wired, Lagotek's dual wireless technology provides functionality through the use of software running on a very secure wireless hardware platform.
The Lagotek HIP100 Intelligent Controller is Wi-Fi(TM) and Z-Wave(TM) compatible. Z-Wave is a low-cost, two-way, mesh network communications technology that enables everyday devices to be controlled and monitored wirelessly and securely from anywhere in the world. Z-Wave is a fully developed, proven, affordable, easy-to-use and interoperable technology that has been adopted by over 150 leading companies who manufacture wireless home control and automation products today.
