Perceptive Automation, developer of Indigo, the leading Mac-based home automation software, announced today they have signed a strategic agreement with FortrezZ, a design, engineering and manufacturing company providing wireless automation and security products, to add support for the complete line of FortrezZ products in Indigo.
Using the most recent release of the flagship Indigo 6 software for Mac OS X, home owners can now directly integrate the complete line of FortrezZ devices, including: Security Sirens and Strobes (SSA1, SSA2, SSA3), Water Valves (WV01), Water / Temperature Sensors (WWA-01AA, WWA-02AA), and the MIMOLite I/O Module.
The direct support of the FortrezZ devices in Indigo gives customers flexible building blocks to create complete home automation solutions. For example, using Indigo with the FortrezZ Water Sensor, Water Valve, and Siren/Strobe a home owner can create a complete water and freeze detection, alarm, and damage prevention system. And with Indigo’s home automation logic and remote alert and access applications, like the Indigo Touch iPhone and iPad application, users can be alerted to a water leak instantly and can remotely shutoff water to the entire house.
Indigo also supports independent operation of the sirens and strobes, and supports the relay output, digital/analog input, and pulse count functions of the MIMOLite. “The MIMOLite is a versatile device with several practical home uses,” said Matt Bendiksen, founder of Perceptive Automation. “Indigo customers can use them for garage door control from their iPhones, or even to monitor electrical or water usage through a pulse output compatible meter.”
Indigo 6, with support for the FortrezZ devices, is available immediately from PerceptiveAutomation.com/.
FortrezZ products will be on display at the CEDIA EXPO, Booth#646, September 26-28, 2013; Denver, Colorado.
Products are available for purchase from various distributors and installers of home automation controls, home security, and monitoring systems, or online at various eStores that carry the current FortrezZ product line up.
