Universal Remote Control (URC) is launching HomeSet, a smart home automation system for the home security solutions market.
“This is a completely new system build from the ground up by URC – new technology, new hardware, new software. It utilizes cloud-based programming and maintenance, and offers cloud compatibility with other cloud-based systems,” Jon Sienkiewicz, General Manager URC HomeSet Division, said in a statement.
HomeSet uses cloud-based programming and maintenance and offers cloud compatibility with other cloud-based systems. It integrates with Z-Wave devices, Nest, SONOS and other devices while controlling up to eight rooms.
According to URC, the included HomeSet app allows rapid launching of up to eight embedded apps, including full compatibility with control apps from every major security and alarm panel manufacturer.
The optional R100 HomeSet Remote Control can display a live video feed on its LCD screen from surveillance cameras.
The HomeSet Automation Hub and smartphone app retail for $299 MSRP.
HomeSet requires professional installation.
