Icontrol Networks and Lowe's to Offer Customers More Smart Home Options
By iControl 2015-01-09
Icontrol Networks, the company behind the most widely used connected home platform in the industry, has announced its partnership with leading home improvement retailer Lowe's to offer more choices for customers who want to make their homes and lives smarter. Starting in early 2015, many Lowe's Iris smart home devices will be certified through Icontrol's OpenHome™ Developer Program, allowing these devices to work seamlessly with Icontrol-powered solutions.
Lowe's will also help customers determine product capability by featuring the OpenHome brand mark both online and in stores. An in-aisle electronic display will help customers sort products by OpenHome device compatibility and the service providers they use. Consumers can also use the co-branded OpenHome website to do research from the comfort of their own homes.
Launched in 2013, the OpenHome Developer Program is the first open ecosystem built to encourage compatibility among devices. More than 100 devices and applications are already certified including Nest, Philips Hue, LG Smart Bulbs, the Logitech Harmony Remote and many others.
Icontrol currently manages more than 26 million sensors and devices as the software behind leading service provider and security company smart home offerings.
