Smart home hub enhances security and lifestyle for Stone Martin Builders’ home buyers
LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Nov. 17, 2015 – The ZeroWire self-contained, wireless security system and smart home hub from Interlogix will be installed in new homes built by Alabama-based Stone Martin Builders. Interlogix, a global leader in security and life-safety solutions, is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
The ZeroWire hub supports convenient, remote system management with a smartphone or tablet, or simply by using the integrated, voice-guided keypad. In addition to security features, it includes a Z-Wave® radio that enables homeowners to control Z-Wave-enabled lights, thermostats and door locks. Native Wi-Fi® offers fast and convenient installation, minimizing downtime for homeowners.
ZeroWire is currently being installed as a standard option in Stone Martin Builder homes, and will be added to 200 to 300 homes the company builds over the next year in central and southern Alabama. Each home’s system will include the hub, one motion sensor and three door contacts to provide added security for homeowners. Stone Martin Builders currently offers 50 floor plans and 219 different facades in homes up to 4,839 square feet.
“We did our research and chose ZeroWire for its ease of use and the ability to provide our homebuyers with a customized home management system that will meet their individual needs,” said John Manasco, director of purchasing and estimating, Stone Martin Builders. “Available options include additional security sensors, electronic locks and adaptors – all in an effort to provide our customers luxurious homes with modern, smart-home features.”
Manasco added that the builder will soon begin offering Interlogix IP cameras, which integrate with ZeroWire, to provide homeowners the capability to view live video, replay captured alarms or action-triggered video.
“ZeroWire is an ideal solution for the homes Stone Martin Builders offers,” said Paul Van der Zanden, general manager, global intrusion and alarm monitoring solutions, Interlogix. “Its innovative features and flexibility will enhance the security and lifestyle of virtually any family.”
Stone Martin Builders has contracted with Advanced Safety & Technology to install the Interlogix ZeroWire systems.
