Shell HomeGenie, an integrated home management solution
The Shell Oil Company has announced plans to launch Shell HomeGenie, an integrated home management solution, in early 2004. Shell HomeGenie is a home management system that provides consumers with simple, Web-based remote access of household systems and devices through a home-computer broadband connection to the Internet.

Shell HomeGenie allows homeowners to remotely access most household heating and cooling systems through the web-enabled Shell HomeGenie Programmable Thermostat, enables control of lights and select appliances through the Shell HomeGenie Power Switch, and permits monitoring of select areas in their homes through the Shell HomeGenie Wireless Camera that incorporates a motion sensor. Users can control these devices remotely through most personal computers or mobile phones with Internet access.

"Although home automation products have been in the market for some time, we believe that none of them offer the integration and the features that Shell HomeGenie does, at an affordable price," said Robin Gaeta, General Manager for Shell HomeGenie. "By letting the homeowner stay connected to his home, at anytime and from anywhere Internet access is available, this product offers peace-of-mind, and truly fulfills the promise of convenient home management."

Shell partnered with leading hardware manufacturers to develop the Shell HomeGenie system, including Motorola Broadband, the global leader in developing broadband-enabled products for the home; Sun Microsystems, Inc., a leading provider of industrial-strength hardware, software and services; and Xanboo, a leading provider of Internet-enabled devices and technology.
