AT&T REMOTE MONITOR MANUFACTURED BY XANBOO EARNS INNOVATIONS AWARD DISTINCTION
New York City – January 8, 2007 – Xanboo, Inc., a technology platform provider of Internet based remote access applications and services, today announced it had been selected as an International CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the Integrated Home Systems category for the manufacturing of AT&T Remote Monitor and the innovative AT&T X1000 Gateway. Each year the prominent Innovations Design and Engineering Awards select honorees from thousands of consumer electronics products. Also, Xanboo has been selected to showcase AT&T Remote Monitor at the 2007 Cherry Picks event.
AT&T Remote Monitor combines live and recorded video (non-audio) capabilities with a range of environmental sensor options to provide customers with a powerful, flexible toolkit to help them stay connected to the people and things they value most. Users can easily customize alerts and actions based on their specific needs. For example, a user can program the service to send a text message alert to a cell phone when motion is detected in an area of the home, while at the same time automatically turning on lighting and recording video of the same area.
The service is available via AT&T to customers of Cingular Wireless services and can be accessed via virtually any Cingular wireless phone or PDA capable of supporting Internet access and Java, as well as nearly any broadband-enabled PC. The service is optimized for residential customers who subscribe to AT&T Yahoo! High-Speed Internet as well as Cingular services.
“We are very excited and honored to receive these awards for AT&T Remote Monitor and the AT&T X1000 Gateway,” said Bill Diamond, president, and co-founder of Xanboo. “Our easy-to-use solutions are ideal for service providers interested in offering their customers a full suite of affordable home monitoring and control products.”
As a widely renowned consumer technology awards program that began in 1989, the prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards recognize achievements in product design and engineering. It is sponsored by CEA, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), the voice of industrial design, committed to advancing the profession through education, information, community, and advocacy.
