AMITYVILLE, N.Y., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This month at the Apple® Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the computer giant announced a move into the "smart home" technology sector. Apple's move into user-friendly home security products shortly followed Google and highlights this now mainstream trend. There is large public demand for products of this nature, something that NAPCO Security Technology Inc. (NSSC) (333 Bayview Avenue, Amityville, NY 11701  842-9400 www.napcosecurity.com) recognized over three-and-a-half years ago when it commenced consumer research and engineering development of iBridge Connected Home. NSSC is an expert in the field of home security and the internet of things and is pleased that its product was one of the first to come to market over eighteen months ago. NSSC is proud to announce that in order to provide customers seamless integration of its products, iBridge is now available for both Apple and Google platforms.
Users Report Success
Richard L. Soloway, noted security expert and Chairman of NSSC comments that "there is an amazing future for the connected home and is proud to be an early provider of this technology." This home security and automation product line allows customers to manage their home security from a smartphone, tablet or computer. NSSC customers have applauded iBridge for helping them feel more secure when away from home, several crediting the product with protecting their children from harmful babysitters and even saving a marriage. iBridge allows customers to monitor their home through video feed directly to their smartphone. This helped a young couple in Illinois see the violent actions a new babysitter was inflicting on their baby while out on a date. Another couple in New Jersey thanks iBridge for helping their marriage when a forgetful mother-in-law continually neglected to lock the door when she left, causing arguments and frustration between the couple. After the installation of iBridge, the couple was able to lock the doors from their smartphone remotely after receiving alerts when she left the house. The applications for iBridge are endless, and foster a safe and happy home environment.
