HydraConnect Offers 5-Year Warranty, Supports 3 More Home Automation Systems

HydraConnect provides generous 5-year advance-replacement warranty (retroactive) on HSS series HDMI matrix switches; now supports Bitwise, Savant, Elan g! home automation systems.

If someone else offers a five-year advance-replacement warranty on HDMI matrix switches, we haven’t seen it. HydraConnect may be the first to offer such a service, along with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

The warranty, for HydraConnect’s HSS line of switches, is retroactive to the original date of purchase.

In addition, HydraConnect announces new drivers for Savant Systems, Bitwise Controls and Elan g! home control systems, joining existing drivers for Control4, Crestron, RTI and iRule.

The company says its products differ from basic matrix switches by providing advanced system automation, automatic set-up, and interface processing through the use of an onboard UNIX computer.

An integrated Web-based interface allows installers to use a laptop, tablet or smart phone to set up and test all of the connected devices.

HydraConnect recently received a patent for making HDMI CEC work in integrated environments.

Special device discovery software “allows us to identify every connected device,” says HydraConnect founder David Schanin. “Simply put, our system isolates all of the CEC devices so they can’t talk to each other, and we use a sophisticated discovery software system that allows us to identify every connected device.”

Installed HSS products that are connected to the Internet become part of HydraConnect’s cloud service, so when software updates are necessary, they occur automatically in the early morning hours without user intervention or dealer visits.

AMX provides a limited lifetime warranty on our Enova DGX family of digital matrix switchers with support for HDMI with HDCP.

I suppose you’re technically correct that we don’t provide ONLY a 5 year warranty.
