CES 2017: Ooma moves into smart home monitoring solutions space

Las Vegas- VOiP innovator Ooma today introduced Ooma Home Monitoring, a comprehensive do-it-yourself home monitoring solution that alerts users of events within their homes. Designed to work with the Ooma smart home phone service – the Ooma Telo – the system includes motion, water, door and window sensors in addition to the unique ability to remotely place a local 911 call from the home, thus providing all-encompassing protection and peace of mind for consumers.

“Ooma’s unique hybrid cloud platform is ideally suited to enable new innovative services including our new Home Monitoring service,” said Eric Stang, CEO of Ooma. “Ooma Home Monitoring joins our recently announced Ooma Internet Security as two new Ooma-branded smart home services offered to our large base of Ooma Telo customers. Integrating Ooma Home Monitoring with Remote 911 gives our customers even greater security and convenience.”

 

Consumers can manage the system and monitor the status of each sensor via the Ooma Home Monitoring Mobile App on their iOS or Android mobile device. Users can select from a variety of real-time notifications including a phone call, SMS, email alerts and app notifications. The Ooma Telo device can also deliver voice announcements when a sensor is triggered or when “home” or “away” mode is changed. Ooma Home Monitoring is the only solution to provide the option to remotely dial 911 from your home phone number, even when you’re away, and speak with your home’s local emergency dispatcher, who will automatically receive your home address information to facilitate the fastest response time possible.

 

Ooma Home Monitoring supports up to 100 connected sensors using the latest version of the Ooma Telo. Sensors work wirelessly using the same DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) technology used by hundreds of millions of cordless handsets worldwide and are easily installed. This eliminates the need for professional installers, and gives home owners and renters a simple and affordable home monitoring system.

 

Pricing and Availability

All Ooma customers will receive the Ooma Home Monitoring service free for the first sensor (door/window, motion or water). For each additional sensor thereafter, Ooma Basic service customers can subscribe to Ooma Home Monitoring for $5.99 per month, while Premier service customers can use the service at no additional cost as a part of their Premier service plan. The water sensor retails for $29.99 MSRP, the motion sensor for $34.99 MSRP, and the door and window sensor for $24.99 MSRP. Ooma Home Monitoring will be available in Q1 and can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com starting today.
