Award-winning, cyber-secure, fully-wireless, versatile, fully-integrated, and seamless - this is where smart-home functionality achieves its objectives as DSC recently unveiled to us this past week in an exclusive training session on the sleek powerhouse hub called iotega. Fully capable of supporting up to 128 smart devices and 66 Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus devices, including home security and smart thermostat integration on the Alarm.com platform, with the iotega true smart-home control is mastered (and never looked so good!)
The iotega has been on the market previously, but what makes the product exciting right now is the new integration partnering with Alarm.com which truly positions this hub as the leading and most versatile wireless security and home automation solution available today. Why? Because in combination with the Alarm.com suite of incredible features, users can now seamlessly arm and disarm their system in addition to controlling other home automation functions such as lighting, thermostats, door locks, voice controlled devices, doorbell cameras and more. In fact, up to 128 devices plus 66 Z-Wave devices. Now, that's MORE. More control, more convenience, more efficiency, and more capabilities but without any of the hassle and multiple device control apps sucking data, memory, and your time away.

But, what about security of the iotega itself? Surely having so many devices integrated and controlled through one hub could open up some issues if security is compromised. DSC is already two-steps ahead to ensure security of the iotega with PowerG 2-way wireless encrypted sensors. Therefore, there's also MORE security.
POWERG ENCRYPTION - PRACTICALLY UNCRACKABLE AND FAST!
Let's take a look at what makes PowerG such a powerhouse for the iotega and ultimate reliability for end users:
Multichannel, Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology enables the system to hop between wireless frequency channels to ensure the seamless transmission of secure communications between the devices and the control panel. This makes unauthorized interception and eavesdropping on communication virtually impossible!
Adaptive Transmission Power translates into up to eight years of battery life for the system’s devices and peripherals, reducing battery-replacement incurred costs.
High transmission ranges allow for devices to reliably communicate within up to 2km/1.24 miles line-of-sight, therefore reducing the cost of installing additional repeaters to service larger premises.
TDMA synchronized communication technology prevents messages from colliding by splitting channels into various time slots, allowing for an increased amount of data transmission and ensuring that devices are able to consistently communicate when needed.
128 bit AES encryption offers exceptionally high level of protection against analysis tools and digital attacks. It is practically uncrackable and FAST!
PowerG devices are certified with ULC Wireless Commercial Burglary Listing, which means these products have been certified under the highest level of requirements for commercial type applications, giving you safer, smarter and more secure products.
WHY INTEGRATION WITH ALARM.COM IS A GAME CHANGER FOR IOTEGA, AND YOU
If you are not familiar with the powerhouse suite of capabilities with the Alarm.com platform for home security, then the significance of the integration with iotega might not "hit home." For starters, Alarm.com is the leading technology provider for connected home services to more than five million households and businesses, and goes far beyond home security and burglar alarm notifications. When your home is defended by Alarm.com, the possibilities open up:
Access control - open and close your garage when you aren't home, know who is going in and out, no more leaving the key under the mat!
Video monitoring - get video alerts when activity is detected and watch live or recorded video from your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch.
Energy management - save money and stay comfortable with responsive energy savings, location-based automation and personalized usage recommendations based on your activity patterns.
Proactive safeguards - rest easy when you are away knowing that if there’s an emergency, or smoke or carbon monoxide detected, Alarm.com proactively sends a signal to emergency personnel, and shut down the heat or AC to stop circulation of dangerous fumes.
Powering your smart home - connect your security, lights, locks, thermostats, video and more for true seamless automation and control.
There's more of that, too: this video will show you 13 smart things you get with Alarm.com.
So, if Alarm.com does all of this then why integrate with the iotega? Well, simply put, it's the integrative capability of the iotega that can put up to 128 smart devices plus 66 Z-Wave devices in your control using only one hub, including those devices that are not connected with the Alarm.com platform. The integration with Alarm.com further opens up the possibilities to get your home security investment and solution involved as well which includes Alarm.com's top-ranked home security with a whole suite of other great benefits as highlighted above.
Additionally, with the iotega there is no keypad to fiddle around with and it can be fully controlled by your smartphone, tablet, or a keyfob for the ultimate power in the palm of your hand over your residence.
