Comporium, a provider of the Quintuple Play of services at the retail level, announced that it will demo its advanced home security and home management system at The Cable Show to be held June 14-16 at McCormick Place.

The security system is powered by iControl. The system sets the standards for safeguarding family and possessions. It has the capability to turn the residence into a smart home that can control lighting, appliances and energy.

Comporium offers the product as part of its Security Dealer Program, which now comprises more than 50 cable TV, telecommunications and electric utility clients, representing one million customers.

“Consumer demand for advanced security and remote home management is growing. iControl’s OpenHome platform provides features beyond traditional home security and, through the extensive reach of Comporium’s Security Dealer program, will enable the demands of consumers to be met,” said Jim Johnson, co-CEO of iControl Networks (News - Alert), in a statement.

Comporium’s dealers are playing a lead role in growing the business. They are adding interactive home security services and other features. Comporium supports them with technical and sales know-how and its UL certified Central Monitoring Station. The Comporium Security Dealer Program offers preferred pricing on equipment, business application and licensing assistance, and proven training and marketing support.

“Any iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad user and other smartphone customers are going to immediately recognize and comprehend how our new home security and home management system works,” said Dan Lehman, general manager, Comporium.

“Downloadable applications for controlling security, video monitoring, lighting, and thermostat; as well as, for finding other web-based information and entertainment content will be offered on the touch screen,” Lehman added.

Recently, Comporium announced that it selected Red Condor's anti-spam technology to protect its more than 95,000 residential and business customers from e-mail threats. Comporium will integrate the company’s fully managed Message Assurance Gateway (News - Alert) appliances into its network infrastructure, providing Comporium's e-mail customers with scalable anti-spam, anti-phishing and anti-virus protection.
