Carrier is pleased to introduce the Carrier® Côr™ smart home automation system – designed with the flexibility and low cost homebuilders will appreciate. Carrier, the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
The Côr home automation system, which enables homeowners to secure, control and remotely manage their home’s most critical systems from the convenience of an intuitive mobile app, will be available later this year. It 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 Côr home automation system enabled devices, homebuilders can leverage a tool that merges the best practices of three United
Technologies brands to deliver a product that delivers everything today’s homeowner demands from an intelligent home service.
As flexible as it is smart, the Côr 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 Côr thermostat,” said Matthew Pine, vice president, marketing, Carrier. “We’ve listened to homebuilders and are thrilled to introduce the next generation in Carrier’s smart home innovation. The Côr home automation system is a tool homebuilders can look to when incorporating smart home technology with nimble home security options.”
The Côr 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.
