Real World Applications
The HomeRemote Pro System converges award winning Z-wave technology, a reliable wireless standard for home control devices, with IP-technology for a reliable remote access solution to your home or office.

With its intuitive interface, HomeRemote Pro allows users to then control and monitor their home remotely from any Web browser or cellular phone. “The ability for someone to control and monitor their home with live video on their cellular phone is a very powerful and useful feature. Imagine being able to check whether you’ve left your iron or lights on and being able to turn it off directly from your cell phone, anywhere, anytime. Imagine being able to see your kids or pets at home at anytime from your cell phone to see if they’re safe or doing what they are supposed to.

We are very excited about the launch of the new line and even more excited about the technological developments that made installing the product as easy as plugging in and logging on to a Website,” says Jason Owen, Chief Officer of Product Strategy and Business Development at Hawking Technologies.
