Intamac Launches Free iPhone App to go With Halo Home Security System

Intamac Systems : 17 September, 2010  (New Product)
The Halo Home IP security system from Intamac can now be monitored and controlled from anywhere in the world with a free application for iPhones released by the company and available for download
Following the successful launch of its Halo self-install IP Home Security product & service, Intamac Systems announces the availability of the supporting Home Halo iPhone application. Available now as a free download from the iTunes store, Home Halo provides iPhone users with the ability to easily monitor, manage and control their connected home devices from anywhere in the world, directly using their handset.

Key features of the Halo Home iPhone app include:

* The ability to view the current status of, and recent events from, connected devices in your home
* Remotely control your home, switching the Security system on and off.
* Set the order of nominated Contacts who will receive messages via voicecall, SMS, email and even Twitter, if an alert is triggered.
* Track 'trigger' events, raising alerts if specific events do / do not occur
* The ability record and view video from connected Halo IP cameras.

Featuring a slick and easy to navigate user interface, the app allows users to remotely control a range of Halo devices in their home directly from an iPhone, and provides real time information via a variety of services including SMS, email and Twitter. The Halo home monitoring service can also be accessed via a PC, and can be tailored to a broad range of useful applications, specific to individual needs including;

* Home Security - automated monitoring & messaging service, collecting real time data from a wide variety of sensors including intruder, fire, flood, panic and much more
* Video - view live streaming images from connected Ip cameras via PC or smartphone, or capture and save recorded clips to be viewed at a later date
* Caring for your family members - including emergency alarms, daily activity tracking, and user definable alert triggers to allow you to passively monitor and care for loved ones from afar and at all times

"Using the latest wireless connected home technology, Halo offers a complete and highly customisable wireless product and service bundled solution, which allows you to monitor and control any aspect of your home or family," commented Kevin Meagher, CEO, Intamac Systems, the award winning platform service provider behind the Halo range. "With Home Halo now available on the iPhone, our customers have control of their homes in the palm of their hands, whenever and wherever they are in the world. Whether the end aspiration is to have a fully integrated smarthome, or simply a burglar alarm that offers a bit more, Halo products and services give customers real choice and flexibility, and help make the connected home a reality."

Launched to the UK consumer market last month, Halo comprises a complete range of wireless, simple to use and affordable devices including a wireless camera, key fob, movement detector, door contact, smoke detector, external siren, external dummy siren, water / flood detector and keypad.

These devices all communicate wirelessly to the Halo control hub, which then sends data via broadband to the monitoring platform. Should an alert be triggered from any sensor, the system automatically notifies the homeowner and a list of their nominated contacts giving full details of the events and responses.

The Halo 100 starter kit is available now at a special price of £199 until 30th September 2010 by entering the discount code INT1025 when purchasing the kit.
