URC Introduces HomeSet™ – A Versatile Smart Home Automation System for the Home Security Solutions Market

Leading manufacturer of home automation products leverages 25+ years of experience to develop system optimized to complement home security installations.


Quote
“HomeSet adds the ‘cool factor’ of home entertainment control to security installations which increases customer engagement and potentially reduces attrition.”

“Control of home entertainment pieces like TVs, Blu-ray, audio equipment and soundbars—plus lighting, door locks, thermostats and more—keeps the homeowner active and engaged, and much less likely to ever surrender the integrated system.”

“Security installation companies are challenged by competition from large non-traditional security providers. HomeSet offers a way for them to diversify their business model easily and sensibly.”

“HomeSet delivers immediate dealer profit at the time of sale—no need to wait 12 months to breakeven.”

“Because there are no holes to drill and no wires to pull, wireless HomeSet is ideal for installation in existing customers’ homes as an aftermarket sale.”

“HomeSet is also well suited for condos and apartments—it’s a ‘take it with you when you move’ solution that broadens the market for the traditional security installer.”

“This is a completely new system build from the ground up by URC— new technology, new hardware, new software. It utilizes cloud-based programming and maintenance, and offers cloud compatibility with other cloud-based systems.”

Summary
URC, with 25+ years experience in the smart home automation and control industry, introduces HomeSet, a streamlined system optimized for the home security solutions channel. This is a completely new system build from the ground up by URC— new technology, new hardware, new software. It utilizes cloud-based programming and maintenance, and offers cloud compatibility with other cloud-based systems. HomeSet integrates with Z-Wave devices, Nest®, SONOS® and hundreds of other popular devices, and can control up to eight (8) rooms. The included HomeSet app is unique and allows rapid launching of up to eight embedded apps including full compatibility with control apps from every major security and alarm panel manufacturer.
