Doha: Vodafone Qatar continues its mission to drive digital transformation through innovative communications technology across the country with the launch of its new Insteon Smart Home Starter Kits range that gives users what they need to start the journey of transforming their homes into smart homes.
The Insteon Smart Home Starter Kit range includes Lighting Control, Security, and Connectivity packages that bring the benefits of smart technology into the heart of the home. Each Kit comes as a pre-packaged bundle, with the Insteon Hub as its centrepiece. The Hub controls the home network, giving users complete remote control over a huge family of connected devices via smart phone or tablet.
The Insteon Lighting Control Starter Kit allows residents and homeowners to wirelessly control their home lighting, turning it on and off and adjusting brightness levels from any location via their phone, besides controlling lamps, coffee machines, and anything else that plugs in. Users are also able to create schedules and scenes for home and away and configure the Insteon Motion Sensor or Door Sensor to control lighting and motion-detecting alarm systems remotely. Plus, it acts as a range extender for fast and reliable communication.
The Insteon Security Starter Kit lets users secure their homes remotely via their smartphone using the Insteon Door/Window Sensor, a wireless magnetic contact sensor that turns any Insteon-controlled light into a door or window sensing device. When paired with the Insteon Hub, the sensor turns into a motion detector that sends instant phone alerts when triggered, enabling residents to safeguard their homes at a distance.
Also launched is the Insteon Connected Starter Kit, a remote control and monitoring system that provides customers with everything they need all in one package to get smart lighting and security features at home affordably, as well as faster communication.
Diego Camberos, Chief Operating Officer, Vodafone Qatar, said: “The launch of our new Insteon range of Smart Home Kits shows how our digital technology innovation continues to transform life for the better for consumers in Qatar, by allowing them to easily and affordably upgrade to smart homes and enjoy the digital features that make life easier. This smart technology helps users create any desired atmosphere in their homes, while conveniently controlling aspects like energy efficiency, home security, and other features.”
Starting at the retail price of QR1,389, all three Smart Home Starter Kits are now available to customers for purchase from Vodafone retail stores in Villaggio, City Center, Landmark and Doha Festival City malls, with free installation by a Vodafone smart home expert.
