EchoStar Unveils New Security and Home Automation Solution

EchoStar Corporation has unveiled SAGE, a new security and home automation solution. The product debuting is: easy to use and install, even in the most tech-averse households; accessible on the TV and via iOS and Android smartphones and tablets; equipped with a unique first-responder dialing feature; and designed with high standards of online security. As the home's security and automation hub, SAGE's sleek in-home console gives consumers the first truly integrated smart home experience incorporated into the TV-viewing experience. The television-centric SAGE system enables consumers to check on children in another room via a video feed, see who rang the doorbell or lower the room temperature-all from the comfort of the sofa in front of the living room TV. In addition, this system provides end-to-end encrypted communications inside and outside of the home. The SAGE iOS and Android mobile app enables control of the home's automated devices and provides unmatched security monitoring and alarm verification, as well as an easy-to-use 911 feature. In alarm situations, SAGE users will not have to rely on a third-party response. SAGE will send alerts to all of the system's registered user devices. Additionally, SAGE users will be able to view camera feeds from their mobile device app.
