Nortek Security & Control Launches Numera Home Safety Hub
Nortek Security & Control LLC, manufacturer of security, smart home, and wellness technology, is rolling out a new “hybrid hub” that it said blends home security with PERS and works with 2GIG home control sensors to create a total smart home security and personal safety solution.
The Numera Home Safety Hub by Nortek is a new addition to the company’s PERS system that combines information from sensing devices—like CO and smoke detectors, glass-break, motion, and window/door sensors—with alerts from wireless personal emergency sensors into a single PERS console. Nortek said the system “represents an evolution of personal safety technology in the home. With complementary lightweight wearables and an upgradeable ecosystem, the Numera Home Safety Hub ensures a safer and more protected home for seniors and families.”
The Home Safety Hub features upgradeable firmware, a range of up to 1,000 feet, customizable “night-time,” “do-not-disturb,” and personalized activity windows, as well as full compatibility with personal safety and 2GIG home sensors, Nortek explained.
“Creating the ability for communication between our personal safety device and home and security sensors gives caregivers more complete ways to ensure the well-being of their loved ones,” Tim Smokoff, group vice president health and wellness at Nortek Security & Control, said in a statement. “With this new hub and access to more information about their environment, users and their care teams can rest easier and feel more comfortable about their loved ones dealing with chronic illness or aging-in-place.”
