Nortek Security & Control Launches Weather-Tight, Hardwired Doorbell Camera for the Security and Custom Dealer

Nortek Security & Control LLC announced the new GoControl® Smart Doorbell Camera available exclusively to professional security dealers and smart-home installers looking to provide their customers with the ability to see and talk to anyone at their door from anywhere via their smartphone. Designed as a complete solution, the GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera is a great addition to any existing home security system or start of one. The new GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera is a Wi-Fi enabled video doorbell with two-way audio to allow homeowners to see who is at the door, and converse with the caller as well. Equipped with a 720p HD camera and a 180-degree wide-angle lens, the GoControl Doorbell Camera easily captures video even when mounted off to the side of the door. To provide homeowners with a superior audio experience, this connected video doorbell decouples audio /video information and uses low latency SIP technology for near real-time two-way audio performance. To provide superior protection from the elements, the GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera is IP65 weather rated with hermetically-sealed wire connections to eliminate service calls due to dust, rain, sleet, and snow. The hard-wired installation coupled with the hermetically-sealed IP65 rating offers superior performance over other battery-powered units resulting in longer Wi-Fi range and advanced night-time illumination while the sealed design protects the sensitive internal electronics and safeguards the unit to deliver a durable and long-lasting connected doorbell solution. As a retrofit solution designed to replace existing or outdated doorbell systems, the GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera is a simple, two-wire installation for dealers and integrators that draws power from same transformer as the previous doorbell, and fits cleanly over an old doorbell to cover pre-existing holes or discoloration footprints. Designed to match existing décor and hardware, the unit's faceplate can be easily swapped out by the installer and comes in a variety of color finishes including Satin Nickel, Bronze, Brass, Charcoal or White. For dealers looking to add a personal touch to their installation, they have the option of swapping out the GoControl logo for their own when ordering replaceable faceplates. The connected doorbell camera can in most cases be directly integrated with the existing door chime. For installations that may require a new door chime, hardwired chime or Wi-Fi powered outlet chime replacements are available to installers. Once installed, homeowners can receive notifications from the device on their iOS or Android smartphone or tablet when someone rings the bell, with the added benefit of communicating with them via clear, two-way audio. Homeowners can also access their doorbell camera video feed on demand from their app and in doing so, record video directly to their phone or take a snapshot. Four powerful IR LEDS provide superior night vision for high-quality video up to 15 feet away even in low-light applications. The companion "MyDoorbell" app can support up to two doorbells and up to four user accounts so the whole family can monitor who is at the front or back door at any time.

Nortek Security & Control, LLC Launches an Expanded Line of Complementary Products for the Numera® Libris® mPERS System

Nortek Security & Control LLC launches an expanded line of complementary products for the Numera® Libris® mPERS system which leverages its fall detection and integrated EverThere® cloud-based platform. The Numera Smart Cradle paired with new lightweight wearables can be used for personal safety during daily activities locally within the home and remain connected to the primary Libris mPERS device and deliver data to the EverThere platform. When leaving the home, the rechargeable battery within the Numera Libris powers the cellular-based mPERS device and can be used to provide advanced fall detection or call for emergency response via two-way voice communication wherever there is a cellular signal. While at home, or when the Libris is charging, users now have the convenience to use a smaller, lighter personal health button to wear as a pendant or on the wrist for bathing, sleeping and other at-home activities. With around-the-clock protection, users and family have peace of mind that in the event of an incident, help can still be reached at any hour, day or night.

Nortek Security & Control, LLC Announces Availability of 2GIG Smoke Detector Sensor

Nortek Security & Control LLC has announced the availability of 2GIG smoke detector sensor for dealers and installers to provide their customers with a smarter layer of protection to their interconnected smoke detector system via a smart, retrofit smoke detector sensing solution that works in tandem with their existing wireless 2GIG alarm panel. The new 2GIG Smoke Detector Sensor (aka 2GIG Smoke Ring) mounts directly between an existing AC-powered interconnected smoke detector and the wall or ceiling and converts the existing smoke detector into a wireless device that can be used in conjunction with the 2GIG GC2 and new 2GIG GC3 alarm panels and systems for more advanced monitoring. Traditional interconnected smoke detectors are designed to trigger each other and send audible alerts throughout the home if any one of the connected units detect smoke, but many are not equipped to communicate that event directly to the alarm panel. Unlike other 'listening-type' devices on the market, the 2GIG Smoke Detector Sensor does not react to the sound of the interconnected smoke detector but is instead triggered by an electric signal which cuts down on false alarms and increases reliability. Upon alarm, the 2GIG 'Smoke Ring' receives the electrical signal from the connected smoke detector and sends a wireless signal to the paired alarm panel which in turn alerts the proper authorities or homeowner of the emergency via their smartphone or other connected device. Designed as a retrofit solution for interconnected AC-powered smoke detector systems, only one 2GIG Smoke Detector Sensor is required to monitor the entire house and connect to the 2GIG alarm panel. The 2GIG 'Smoke Ring' allows security dealers and installers to add an additional - and smarter - layer of protection to their customer's home by providing a professionally-monitored alert signal transmission when smoke is detected by any or all of the interconnected AC-powered smoke detectors.
