Ember Enables uControl's Next Generation ZigBee Home Security System

uControl, a leading provider of SMA (Security, Monitoring and Automation) solutions has teamed with Ember to deliver its latest innovation – an entirely new line of wireless ZigBee security sensors which enables Broadband Service Providers to deliver the next generation of services for the Connected Home. The new uControl SMA Platform includes and integrates a wide variety of ZigBee sensors including motion, smoke and glass break detectors, door and window contacts, key fobs, wireless keypads and much more.

uControl’s award winning system pairs its open, technology agnostic software infrastructure with the industry’s only “All-In-One” SMA TouchScreen combining an alarm system, communications gateway and home automation platform into one device. uControl selected Ember’s latest ZigBee chipset, the EM357 ZigBee system-on-chip (SoC), to power its advanced line of sensors and peripherals.

“We believe that home security will be the next big service offering from broadband providers,” said Dennis Natale, Ember’s VP of sales. “ZigBee wireless networks are best suited for this application and enable service providers to establish a deeper presence inside the home.”
