iMCA System can be easily deployed in new and old buildings equipped with various automation standards and platforms, resulting in a reliable, affordable and highly versatile system unlocking the true power of different automation technologies like IP Switches, IP Sensors, X10, A1, Xanura, Lutron, UPB, OnQ-ALC, Clipsal C-Bus, HPM iControl, Dynalite, Insteon and many others via a wide range of adapters and switching units. It uses different technologies suitable for retrofitting!
100% web based so is accessible from anywhere by any device with a web browser (doesn't require installation of anything on the access device and needs no other software components such as ActiveX, DLLs, flash, etc to function).
Supports the widest variety of user access device interfaces, including in-wall controllers, touch screens, wireless remotes, PDAs, Smart Phones and iPods, iPhones, iPads.
Creates instant virtual connections between switches and sensors recognized by the iMCA System regardless of the switching/sensing hardware unit they are attached to.
Combine or merge different IP based switching and sensing units from different vendors while preserving your existing investment.
Use your mobile device to open a window, close a curtain, turn off lights, activate the air conditioning, turn on the stereo or flick a TV channel, while automating any or all of these according to time or an event, to suit your lifestyle or business requirements.
Consolidate control and monitoring of multiple physical locations (principal residence, business, holiday house) through a single user interface from any PC, or from a wide range of Smart Phones and hand held devices.
Stop worrying about doors or windows you may have left open, or gas you may have left on, by monitoring their status from your mobile device or receiving SMS notifications in case of such events.
Lets you easily specify various levels of access to various functions and capabilities by different users (family members, colleagues, business partners etc) using different devices.
Lets you easily create and execute any number of automation scenarios based on time schedule or sensor information, without having to deal with cryptic codes or learning a scripting language.
Can send SMS or email messages (or phone messages when used with appropriate additional hardware) upon "event triggers", such as a door or window left open, flooding, gas leakage, temperature thresholds, strong winds, movement in a room etc.
Allows CCTV cameras to send video frame shots over FTP when motion is detected, or based on a user-specified refresh rate (for example a frame shot every 5 seconds), thereby enabling you to save on your mobile service bill.
Built-in advanced security shows you exactly who has tried to access your system from where, and automatically blocks their access attempt using a variety of methods.
Features a bookmarks manager to allow system administrators to easily access network based resources via direct links through Local or Wide area network.
The "turn-key" iMCA Controller is entirely self-contained, requiring no further assembly, installation or maintenance.
Use any touch screen monitor (including Apple's iPod, iPhone, iPad with no additional downloads or investments needed) as an iMCA Controller touch screen control panel.
Reduce the cost of deployment and ownership of your automation project or deliver extra "value for money" for your clients.
Conserve energy and lower utility bills.
