PoEWit Technologies, a manufacturer of PoE lighting, PoE motion sensors, and custom A/V networking solutions, and URC, a global smart residential and commercial automation company, have announced an integration partnership.
The PoE-based smart home manufacturer states that now, in addition to controlling its PoE lighting via its free control app, homeowners can control and manage their PoEWit lighting alongside a full smart home system using a URC control panel.
“It’s incredibly easy to retrofit PoEWit’s PoE lighting and motion sensors into any home that has a URC system by simply connecting the PoEWit device to a PoE switch or power injector. Once installed, PoEWit’s lighting can be controlled by the URC system, and PoEWit’s motion sensors can integrate with other URC-controlled smart devices for a seamless home automation experience,” states Dusan Jankov, co-CEO of PoEWit.
According to both companies, their newly announced collaboration provides homeowners several benefits that includes:
- Simplified Automation: Fast, easy control and automation of PoEWit’s PoE lighting solutions via URC’s Total Control system.
- Unified, Seamless Integration: As part of URC’s Unified Modules, the PoE lighting and motion sensors integrate seamlessly with other smart categories, such as climate zones, security, audio, video, and more.
- Create Robust, Lifestyle Scenes: Through professional programming, users can launch scenes that create environmental scenes that include for example, “Good Morning” or “Goodnight” that adjust the manufacturer’s lighting solutions, along with a home’s HVAC, shades/drapes, and other subsystems.
- Voice/Hands-Free Control: URC’s control and automation systems support voice commands through Alexa, Apple TV, and Comcast Xfinity that allow two-way communication with PoEWit lighting and other smart devices for hands-free operation.
“Delivering next-generation, unified experiences for homeowners and simplified deployments for our dealers are the strategic imperatives behind this integration with PoEWit Technologies,” adds Lars Granoe, vice president of product development, URC.
“It adds to our industry-leading integration portfolio enabling broad, simplified automation.”
