iSmart Alarm Inc. unveiled a new iPhone-operated home alarm system which will allow users to monitor, arm and disarm their alarm systems from their iPhones at CES 2013 this week.
The system will be equipped with CubeOne and iCamera functionalities, making it easy to use and setup. Users will be able to plug the CubeOne device into any outlet in their homes, connect it to an internet router, and then place wireless sensors, motion detectors and cameras in any room they want to monitor. If the monitors are triggered, the system will instantly call the user as well as snap five pictures of the area in question and send them to the user’s iPhone. Users will also have the option to have the system send alert messages to family members or other pre-selected contacts.
The company claims that the system will be easy to set up and portable, making it ideal for both homeowners and renters. In addition to the alarm functionalities, the iSmartAlarm has an open platform that can be used to turn lights on and off, control room temperatures, and monitor carbon monoxide gas among other household purposes.
iSmart Alarm Inc. is currently running a Flexible Funding campaign with a goal to raise $100,000 USD, according to the company’s website. Exact pricing and availability of the product is unknown at the time of this writing, but users will not need to carry a contract or monthly fees. Also, with a $79 donation to the campaign, customers will be able to get the Basic Package, estimated to be delivered in April 2013.
