".. it became apparent to me that home automation and remote access capabilities are now a necessity for vendors who want to stay competitive in the residential security market.
Though the market by all accounts has taken a pounding during the recession, it remains a viable one, especially for those dealers who work in the high-end segment.
Schlage, known traditionally for its residential locks and other access control products, unveiled its new LiNK home automation solution at the show. The solution works as a bridge that plugs into a wireless router, which gives end users control over their door locks, thermostat, lights, as well as CCTV cameras via a Web base.
“We got into (home automation) from a necessity standpoint. Home automation is part of the future for (residential security),” said Darrell Bartlett, southeast regional sales manager for Schlage.
LiNK works on the Z-Wave RF frequency and up to 232 Z-Wave enabled devices can be hooked into a single LiNK system, according to Bartlett. For those unfamiliar with wireless home networking technology, Z-Wave is one of two main RF frequencies that are battling for supremacy in the space, along with ZigBee. The key difference between the two is that Z-Wave is a proprietary RF wireless communications technology, while ZigBee is a wireless global standard."
