Eaton Launches Home Automation Hub, Simplifying Connected Home Technology for Builders and Contractors

Date: November 13, 2017

PITTSBURGH, PA — Power management company Eaton today announced the launch of the Home Automation Hub, a powerful connected home gateway that puts automation and energy management a touch away.

Eaton’s Home Automation Hub provides homeowners, builders and contractors with a solution that allows users to integrate into their smart home system and control a variety of popular intelligent devices, such as Honeywell Lyric thermostats, Kwikset locks, Denon Heos music systems, Clare Controls security devices and many more. This hub is one of many products that work seamlessly with all of Eaton’s wiring devices solutions, including our broad offering of Z-Wave based Lighting Controls.

“As connected home demand continues to increase, builders are challenged to deliver reliable intelligent devices that can integrate into a central hub, which can add significant complexity to the home building or remodeling process” said Grayling Love, product line manager, Eaton. “With the introduction of the new Eaton Home Automation Hub, we hope to dramatically increase the adoption of connected home technology and educate builders and contractors that installation doesn’t have to be complicated.”

Eaton’s Home Automation Hub features:
  • Single app control: Manage lighting, security systems, locks, garage door openers, thermostats, cameras, entertainment networks, sensors and more.
  • Security enabled: Integrate with popular security systems to simplify control.
  • Simplified installation: Install the hub and Z-Wave based products with ad-hoc Wi-Fi capability and mobile app.
  • User interface: The intuitive mobile app works across different eco-systems and supports voice control.
  • Remote access: Allow users to access the system and connected devices away from home, without a monthly subscription.
