Indianapolis, IN – September 7, 2011 (CEDIA Expo booh#4732)

Ihiji, creator of the award-winning cloud-based remote monitoring and support system invision, will unveil for CEDIA Expo attendees the new INV-APP-500, a low-cost, energy-efficient remote monitoring hardware appliance, destined to be the industry standard for installations large and small.

Boasting a game-changing starting price of $200 and sold as part of the ihiji invision solution, ihiji’s new INV-APP-500 enables
integrators to further reduce remote servicing costs while simultaneously increasing system reliability, earning recurring revenue and maximizing operating efficiencies. In contrast to competitive solutions, ihiji monitoring services start as low as $120 a year, which when coupled with the new appliance, allow authorized ihiji dealers to offer both hardware and the first year of service for as low as $320. The cost of which can easily be recouped by avoiding just one truck roll.

The end-user benefit is equally impressive. ihiji’s low-power appliance INV-APP-500 can deliver a remarkable $700 in annual energy cost savings per location, when compared with traditional in-home server scenarios.

“With our new low cost appliance, integrators now have what they need; a remote monitoring solution for any price point,” said ihiji VP of technical operations, Michael Maniscalco. “Because invision is cloud-based, all of the heavy lifting is done on our servers, which means dealers do not sacrifice features or reliability with the new low-cost appliance. In addition, the cloud offers the most reliable monitoring and support solution available while keeping cost of entry and ongoing maintenance costs as low as possible. We believe this approach to the category is more than a trend, but an emerging industry standard. What you see now is just the beginning.”

Invision is the only cloud based monitoring solution built specifically for residential integrators and is designed to simplify remote management without the high costs and complexities associated with enterprise IT-type monitoring solutions. Developed and maintained entirely in-house by ihiji’s software engineering team, invision has been frequently lauded by integrators as being both the most robust and the most easy-to-use solution available.
