Press Release (ePRNews.com) - IRVINE, Calif. - Jan 29, 2017 - PowerHouz, the Premier HomeKit Home Automation App, has an impressive set of features. By comparing it with the other HomeKit Apps, we found out 10 killer features PowerHouz does better than anyone else, including the Apple Home App.
HomeKit, HealthKit, Calendar and Reminders Integration
PowerHouz is integrating in one App all the favorite iOS functions when at home. PowerHouz users are able to access and update Calendars or Reminders and even their Activity and sleeping pattern while having full control of their HomeKit Accessories. This level of integration reduces dramatically the need to switch between Apps and sets PowerHouz as an ideal Home Portal.
Weather Information Integration
PowerHouz also integrates Weather Information linked to the Home’s Address. A user can switch houses and automatically get the corresponding 2-day weather forecast displaying on the Main View.
PowerHouz includes a Security Dashboard allowing the user to monitor a house at a glance and show the status of multiple HomeKit Accessories in real time.
In case of a significant incident like a window opening, a leak or smoke detection, PowerHouz will wake up the user immediately for him to take action.
An Automated emergency protocol can help users respond quickly to dangerous situations. It includes the activation of a HomeKit Scene (turning on lights, locking doors, etc.) as well as instant communication with the Neighbors and Emergency Services. This level of preemptive security combined with active countermeasures is revolutionary for users as it can really make a difference at the time and place of the occurrence instead of after the fact.
Night Stand Mode
At night, the Security Dashboard turns into the ultimate Security Night Stand. Once the Night Stand mode is selected, PowerHouz will execute a scene of the user’s choice (closing doors, turning off lights, turning on the alarm …); it will set itself in a low light dashboard to let the user monitor his entire house and start recording the user’s sleep time in HealthKit.
By simply tilting an iPhone or iPad on its side, the device becomes a slick and feature rich night stand. Without even the touch of a button, PowerHouz will switch the Night Stand Mode. In the morning, as the user wakes up and picks up his device, PowerHouz will automatically trigger the Morning routine scene, record the sleep time in HealthKit and go back to its regular display.
Residents, Neighbors, Home and Emergency Services Communication
A Home Portal would not be complete without a communication module. PowerHouz allows the user to directly communicate with Residents, Neighbors, Home Services (Gardener, Cleaners, etc.) and Emergency Services.
Residents’ Presence detection
A cool function is to allow the detection of the Residents when they connect to the House Wifi. A presence indicator is shown right by the User’s Icon.
PowerHouz can trigger group messages to notify residents that Dinner is ready or send a Neighborhood Watch Alert; it will even let you call emergency services with one tap during the emergency protocol.
Single Screen Interface
With all these features, PowerHouz had to work with several user interface experts to provide the best Home Automation experience possible. No more endless screens and menus, all functions are accessible from one screen with collapsible panels for Accessories, Users and Settings.
