Innovations showcased in the Nexia Home Intelligence IBS booth No. C3531 include several Nexia-compatible products from home industry leaders Trane and Schlage. Today, homeowners can remotely manage multiple features and functions of their home—including door locks, heating and cooling systems, video surveillance, lights, shades and energy usage—via any web-enabled computer or smartphone from anywhere in the world. Among Nexia’s most recent product expansions is the new Schlage Touchscreen Deadbolt; the new Trane Energy Management Solution powered by eMonitor TM; and new zoning capabilities with the Trane ComfortLinkTM II Control. In addition to home automation, Booth No. C3531 also showcases Trane’s new line of ductless heating and cooling systems, providing an efficient, economical solution for homes without ductwork and spaces such as room additions and attics that have been converted to living spaces.
“We’re continuously creating new innovations in safety, comfort and efficiency for today’s homeowners – from the connected solution Nexia provides to support mobile lifestyles, to dynamic new products that make homes safer and more secure, to important advancements in energy-saving heating and cooling,” said John Evans, president, Residential Security Solutions at Ingersoll Rand.
Redefining Home Safety: Schlage Touchscreen DeadboltThe Schlage Touchscreen Deadbolt, a 2013 Electronic House Product of the Year award winner, is fully loaded with the highest grade of security and technology. The strong, multi-function lock is a first for the Schlage brand in combining the connectivity of Nexia Home Intelligence, the convenience of keyless entry and the protection of built-in alarm technology to create a lock like no other. It delivers an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Grade 1 security rating, the highest residential rating awarded on the market, as certified by the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA). Nexia compatibility gives homeowners control of their home’s safety from wherever they are. If they can’t be at home to access the touchscreen deadbolt, they can unlock a door from work to let a dog walker inside, manage distinctive key codes and settings from the airport, or receive text alerts if a lock is activated or an alarm is triggered while on vacation . The fully loaded Touchscreen Deadbolt offers keyless control using simple access codes so homeowners never have to worry about losing, hiding, carrying or forgetting their house keys again. The lock can hold up to 30 unique codes and is designed to create temporary codes for someone such as a housekeeper who needs access only on certain days and times of the week. The built-in alarm system also alerts homeowners instantly if someone goes in and out, tampers with the lock or tries to break into the home.
