Cold Snap Makes HomeSitter Cellular A Hot Product at CES ShowStoppers Event

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The bitter cold weather blanketing the East Coast and Midwest is just perfect for the HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring System!  This hot new product calls, texts and emails property owners when temperatures get too cold inside a remote home, vacation property or business.

Since 1987, Emerson Control Products has been protecting homes with their land line based FreezeAlarm, WaterAlarm and HomeSitter products.  At the CES ShowStoppers Media Reception, Emerson Control Products will be introducing the HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring System with text, email and phone call notifications that will be available for sale in Spring, 2014.

The HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring System combines the HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring Device and Wireless Sensors with a powerful, yet easy to use cloud based application that allows a homeowner to monitor temperature, humidity, power status and presence of water throughout their home or business.  If problems do occur with temperature or humidity extremes, the power goes out or if a water leak is detected, the device sends an alert to the cloud and the homeowner is immediately notified by text, email or phone call.

Emerson Control Products has collaborated with one of the largest wireless provider to deliver an affordable home monitoring system with no long term contract, activation fees or complex setup.  The HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring System comes with three months of access to monitor and receive alert notifications about their home via a computer, tablet or smart phone web application.  Additional months of service can be purchased for a low monthly fee.

Wireless sensor pucks are called "SPucks" because of their round, 2" diameter design.  The HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring System can monitor up to sixteen wireless SPucks to monitor for water leaks and for temperature monitoring in other areas of a property.  SPucks have a long life battery that will last up to five years. 

The technology behind the HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring System is impressive without being complex.  Simply register the HomeSitter on-line and set up an account.  Next, plug in the HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring device to a power outlet.  The HomeSitter automatically connects to the wireless cellular network and starts communicating to the cloud application.  A lithium, rechargeable battery keeps the product working even if the power is out and it notifies you when power is restored.

The HomeSitter Cellular Monitoring System will be available for sale this spring.  To learn more about the HomeSitter Cellular Home Monitoring System, go to www.protectedhome.com and click on Cellular Phone Based Monitoring Systems.

Control Products is a business unit of Emerson Electric Corporation of St. Louis, MO.  Since 1987, Emerson Control Products has been manufacturing and distributing FreezeAlarms, WaterAlarms and HomeSitters through electronics and hardware stores and on-line retailers.
