Monday, August 22, 2016

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—Icontrol Networks brought new connected home offerings into its ecosystem through the company’s Developer Program: LG’s Smart Refrigerator, SkyBell HD Wi-Fi video doorbell, and Bttn’s Wi-Fi Smart Button.

“To reach mass adoption of the smart home, we need to remove technological barriers and ensure people can pick and choose their devices,” Bob Hagerty, CEO of Icontrol Networks, said in a prepared statement.

LG, SkyBell and Bttn utilized Icontrol’s cloud integration capabilities to become compatible with all Icontrol pltforms. “By introducing cloud-based integration, we’ve streamlined the processes required to interoperate with our solutions, allowing our ecosystem to grow faster than ever,” Hagerty said.

Andrew Thomas, co-founder of SkyBell, said in the announcement, “Through this simple process, SkyBell can now reach millions of residents with an Icontrol-powered smart home solution and help them enjoy a safer home.”

“Icontrol’s cloud integration technology is a game-changer,” said Thomas.

The Icontrol Developer Program allows any cloud-based, ZigBee, Wi-Fi or Z-Wave connected device to more easily integrate with Icontrol-powered solutions.
