If you're a regular to F5 Live, or you have gone snooping around your local RadioShack in the past year or so, you have probably encountered the Schlage Link line of home automation products. With things like door locks and cameras, all accessible from the Internet, it was a useful set of products. No more leaving a key under the mat, just unlock the door from your phone when the repair guy gets to the house.
Well, Schlage has decided to up the ante and expand the product line, renaming it Nexia Home Intelligence and bringing on companies like Pella and Trane to bring new features to the set, like window shades that can automatically open/close on a timer or from the web, or an air conditioner that can be remotely controlled, all through the Nexia website.
We have a hands-on demo of the website, showing off the Pella window shades, remote-controlled cameras and more.
