Certification Provides Dealers and Integrators with Best-of-Breed Security and Automation Solutions for the Next Generation of “Connected Homes”
MELVILLE, N.Y., Sept. 6, 2011 – Honeywell today announced that its widely
used portfolio of VISTA Series residential and commercial security systems have
been certified by home automation provider Control4. Home automation integrators and
security dealers can now integrate products from both companies to create
“connected homes.” The certification assures seamless interoperability between
Honeywell’s range of VISTA security systems and the Control4® ecosystem of
devices. More specifically, Honeywell VISTA is the only security system able to
exchange zone descriptors with the Control4 home automation system,
significantly improving the efficiency of the installation process. The
Control4® platform gives homeowners the ability to automate and control a broad
range of devices including security systems, HVAC, lighting and home
entertainment systems from a number of interfaces including keypads,
smartphones, touchscreens, tablets and TVs.
“The last couple of years have witnessed an exponential rise in consumer
demand for home automation and control systems, many of which include security
as a key element of the solution. This presents a tremendous opportunity for
Honeywell security dealers to deliver more value to homeowners, differentiate
themselves from competitors and close more business,” said Jonathan Klinger,
vice president of marketing, Honeywell Security & Communications. “The
integration of Honeywell’s VISTA series with Control4 provides our channel
partners and their customers with a best-of-breed solution that will help them
make the most of this opportunity.”
“Security is a critical element in the vast majority of connected homes,”
said Jim Arnold, Control4 senior vice president of sales. “Honeywell’s VISTA
series is a significant addition to Control4’s ecosystem of certified products.
It increases the depth and breadth of security offerings our dealers can provide
Honeywell security dealers interested in offering Control4 technology or
