Piper Named Finalist in 2014 CTIA E-Tech and Hot for the Holidays Awards

Acclaimed Security and Automation Device Recognized for Innovation in M2M, IoT, Sensors, RFID & NFC and Connected Home Categories

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Icontrol Networks announced today that Piper was named a finalist in the M2M, IoT, Sensors, RFID & NFC category of CTIA's annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition and the Connected Home category of the Hot for the Holidays Awards competition. Representing the most innovative and cutting-edge emerging mobile services, solutions and technology, the E-Tech Awards finalists feature the best in areas such as network equipment, M2M and the Internet of Things and the cloud, while the Hot for the Holidays Awards recognize the hottest mobile consumer electronics, including gadgets and accessories from entertainment and health to the connected car and home ahead of the holiday buying season.

Piper is the first all-in-one home security, video monitoring and automation device that combines an HD camera, HD panoramic video, Z-Wave home automation, lighting scheduling and control, and environmental sensors into a single, elegant product that you interact with via the Piper app on iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. Piper was also named an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in early January 2014 for its intelligent design and simple yet powerful technology.

"We are honored that Piper was selected as a finalist for both the E-Tech and Hot for the Holidays Awards -- two very different categories," said Russell Ure, creator of Piper and Executive Vice President and GM at Icontrol Networks. "Piper is gaining great traction in the consumer marketplace and we're thrilled that it's being recognized as both a cutting-edge mobile technology as well as an easy-to-use gadget for everyone -- from home owners and renters to parents to small businesses."

"CTIA awards recognize the best and most innovative products and services for wireless companies looking to improve their operations and their engagement with their customers. Perfectly positioned for retailers to prepare for the holiday buying season, Super Mobility Week attendees will see what will be the next hottest devices and services," said Robert Mesirow, CTIA Vice President and Show Director.

Along with CTIA's other awards program, MobITs Awards, there were almost 300 entries submitted and scored by more than 50 industry experts, analysts and media.

Super Mobility Week attendees and online users will also have the opportunity to choose a "Crowd Favorite" by voting for their favorite product, not just finalists, in each program. Online voting is open now and runs until Monday, September 8 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
