Lagotek Incorporates Viiv Into Home Control System
On Wednesday, Lagotek and Intel announced the integration of the latter’s Viiv home entertainment system into the former’s Home Intelligence Platform (HIP) for wireless home automation. Viiv will operate the HIP’s system and entertainment configuration, helping to perform such functions as altering the lighting in a room at the beginning or end of a film. The Viiv platform allows lighting, home heating, air conditioning, surveillance and integration control from any point of contact in the home, as demonstrated by the Good Night Mode which essentially shuts the house down from the master bedroom. Says Lagotek President Ron Risdon, “Since we utilize Z-Wave as a key element of our solution, we regard Intel as the ideal partner for bringing home theater into the mass market. Viiv is the premier entertainment platform and the perfect combination of price, quality and performance.”
