Amsterdam, The Netherlands – The center of the U.S. home-automation industry is at the CEDIA Expo in Denver, but EchoStar is going to the IBC conference here to provide a sneak peak at its home-automation solution.
The conference is designed for the global media and entertainment industry.
EchoStar’s solution will deliver the ability to control, monitor, and manage home automation devices and security systems that connect wirelessly. Devices include thermostats, security cameras, entry-point sensors, locks, lights, doorbells and switches.
Control of home systems will be integrated into TV sets as well as into mobile devices, which will let users receive notifications and live video from remote locations.
The new home automation product is expected to appear in various countries beginning in 2015, the Englewood, Colo., company said.
EchoStar operates the HughesNet satellite Internet service in North America and makes the Dish Network’s Hopper DVR and Joey product line; Sling Media’s Slingbox products; and a line of digital video set-top box devices for the satellite and terrestrial markets.
