Pennsylvania cable provider Blue Ridge Communications is looking to beef up its smart home offerings, joining the Comporium Security, Monitoring and Automation Dealer Program. Comporium is a smart home service provider. The program combines security system, communications gateway and home automation platform into one device and is expected to enable broadband service providers to offer next-generation home management services, the companies said.
“Our customers will have a total home management solution that gives them remote control access to lighting, appliances, thermostats and enhanced video monitoring through their smartphones, PCs and tablets,” said Mark Masenheimer, vice president of operations at Pencor Services, Inc, parent company of Blue Ridge Communications.  “Our experience and resources in home security services are compatible for the award-winning iControl Networks platform and Comporium’s proven program.”
“We honestly feel that our Dealer Program and Blue Ridge Communications are a perfect fit, because it will integrate so seamlessly with Blue Ridge’s infrastructure while lifting their existing security business to the next level,” said Comporium SMA Dealer Program Vice President Dan Lehman. “The advanced technology means that Blue Ridge Communications’ customers will realize greater value and control over the management and security of their property,” Lehman added. “Industry publications are already calling the SMA system that Blue Ridge Communications will be providing, the ‘system of choice’ by the nation’s top cable TV operators. That says that the customers served by Blue Ridge Communications are in good hands.”
