ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- EchoStar is pleased to announce that SAGE™, a new and affordable security and home automation solution that enables unprecedented command of consumer-owned home security and automation hardware and applications, will debut at CES in Las Vegas on January 6-9.
The product debuting is:
- Easy to use and install, even in the most tech-averse households
- Accessible on the TV and via iOS™ and Android™ smartphones and tablets
- Equipped with a unique first-responder dialing feature
- Designed with high standards of online security
As the home's security and automation hub, SAGE's sleek in-home console gives consumers the first truly integrated smart home experience incorporated into the TV-viewing experience. The television-centric SAGE system enables consumers to check on children in another room via a video feed, see who rang the doorbell or lower the room temperature—all from the comfort of the sofa in front of the living room TV. In addition, this system provides end-to-end encrypted communications inside and outside of the home.
The SAGE iOS™ and Android™ mobile app enables control of the home's automated devices and provides unmatched security monitoring and alarm verification, as well as an easy-to-use 911 feature. In alarm situations, SAGE users will not have to rely on a third-party response. SAGE will send alerts to all of the system's registered user devices. Additionally, SAGE users will be able to view camera feeds from their mobile device app. In the event of a security breach, homeowners can push one button to dial 911, connecting them to law enforcement near their homes.
"SAGE is a simple and secure system with unique capabilities including the 911 feature, which differentiates this from other products on the market. We believe that dialing police directly will help cut response times significantly," said Mark Jackson, president of EchoStar Technologies. "SAGE is a solution that provides consumers peace of mind and the ultimate in simplicity."
A full demo of SAGE is available on the show floor at CES in Las Vegas in Central Hall, Booth 8143.
