Carrier is pleased to introduce the Carrier® Cor™ smart home automation system – enabling homeowners to secure, control and remotely manage their home's most critical systems from the convenience of an intuitive mobile app. Carrier, the world's leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Control & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
The new Cor home automation system builds on Carrier's commitment to delivering the "heart" of a smarter home. It provides homeowners a single solution to easily connect their home's most important systems: heating and cooling, safety and security. Once set up, users can manage connected devices, view live video of their home from connected cameras and remotely manage access from the system's app, anywhere in the world. With Cor home automation system enabled devices, homeowners are able to unlock their home for a scheduled service technician, program their lights to turn on at dusk or set their thermostat to adjust before they arrive home. Through geolocation technology, users can also program tasks based on location – for instance, the system can be set up to disarm the home alarm system upon pulling into the driveway.
As flexible as it is smart, the Cor home automation system can connect and automate over 64 sensors, 250 Z-Wave® enabled devices and 16 cameras in the home. It also offers the homeowner the choice to opt for self-home monitoring or upgrade to professional security monitoring.
"Last year Carrier demonstrated our commitment to delivering innovative products that enhance the lives of our customers with the Cor thermostat," said Matthew Pine, vice president, marketing, Carrier. "Now we're thrilled to be delivering the next generation in Carrier's smart home innovation. The Cor home automation system will allow homeowners to remotely connect to their homes, which may ultimately simplify their lives."
The Cor home automation system interfaces with innovative technology from three leading United Technologies brands:
- Carrier, the innovator of modern air conditioning, boasts more than a century of HVAC experience.
- Interlogix, a global leader in residential and commercial security.
- Kidde, the world's largest manufacturer of fire safety products.
The product is targeted for sale in late April and professionally installed exclusively by Carrier's nationwide network of dealers.
