What is TrickTV?
TrickTV is a home control system that enables you to manage your energy usage, monitor your home security and access your home systems remotely at an affordable price.
Built on the well-respected MiOS software platform, TrickTV is a powerful tool that will change the way you think about being at home.
Control everything from your smartphone, Samsung Smart TV or your home computer via the TrickTV app, available for free for Apple iOS and Google Android platforms. TrickTV keeps it simple and affordable - and it only takes a few minutes to get it running.
The TrickTV system is anchored by the TrickTV ControlStation, the "Brain" of the TrickTV Home Control system.
The TrickTV ControlStation is able to communicate with a wide variety of different devices, by speaking their native languages.
One of most essential is Z-Wave, a next-generation wireless network that lets all your home electronics talk to each other.
It uses simple, reliable, low-power radio waves that easily travel through walls, floors and cabinets. With over 600 Z-Wave Certified Devices, even products that you wouldn't ordinarily think of as "smart," such as appliances, window shades, and even garage door openers are available.
The TrickTV ControlStation unifies all your home electronics into an integrated Home Area Network, with no complicated programming and no new cables to run.
Each module in a Z-Wave network communicates with every other module, acting as a "repeater" and routing your commands to their destination by the most reliable pathway.
When Z-Wave devices are installed throughout the house, signals are automatically routed around obstacles or dead spots, strengthening the network as more devices are added.
Any Z-Wave enabled device can be effortlessly added to your network, and many non-Z-Wave devices can be made compatible with your TrickTV ControlStation by simply plugging in an accessory module.
In seconds, your device gets paired to the TrickTV ControlStation and can communicate wirelessly with all the other devices in your home.
Cut your energy consumption and reduce your utility power bill. TrickTV literally pays for itself, by saving you money while also saving the planet. Decrease your power bill and increase your contribution to society by going "green" with TrickTV.
TrickTV's advanced energy tracking lets you compare past and present usage of all the devices in your home.
Getting started is simple; just download the free TrickTV app to your Samsung Smart TV.
It will allow you to view still frames from your IP cameras right from the comfort of your couch. Check in on the baby, keep an eye on pets, or see who is at the front door. Peace of mind is only a click away.
With TrickTV monitoring and managing your home has never been so easy.
