Web Monitoring Unveiled

Amagansett, N.Y. — An Internet gateway developed by Connected Hearth lets consumers remotely monitor and control HAI home-automation systems from any browser-equipped PC. With the gateway, a dedicated computer isn't needed in the home to provide remote monitoring and control. With the gateway connected to HAI's Omni series of controllers, consumers can log on to a password-protected Web site operated by Connected Hearth ( to monitor and control home systems, such as lighting, HVAC and security. The site also displays the views of security cameras and monitors for fire, water leaks and break-ins. It places a call or sends e-mail to alert subscribers of a problem.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Custom installers who want to install Kaleidescape's multizone movie server have another option. Systems-integration supplier Crestron has developed a software module that simplifies the process of integrating Kaleidescape's servers with Crestron's home-control systems. Integration delivers control over the Kaleidescape system through Crestron touch screens, which control such home systems as lights, security, distributed-audio systems and distributed-video systems. Kaleidescape's movie server must still be used with dedicated clients in each room.
