MONI, a subsidiary of Ascent Capital Group, Inc. has introduced an interactive smart home security kiosk at Dallas Love Field, the first interactive kiosk of its kind in the smart home space, according to a press release. The kiosk is designed to educate consumers about smart home security offerings through hands-on experience. The kiosk was unveiled with a ribbon cutting ceremony and remarks from Jeff Gardner, president and CEO of MONI Smart Security, and Kelly Collins, general manager, Dallas Love Field.
The kiosk is representative of the outside of a house on one side and the inside of a house on the other side. iPads are placed around the kiosk so that visitors can test how smart home solutions work via MONI's app. The "outside" of the kiosk features a front door, complete with a SkyBell Wi-Fi video doorbell that allows kiosk visitors to see, hear and speak to the actual visitor at the door.
The outside of the kiosk also features lights and locks that can be controlled by MONI's app. The "inside" of the kiosk features a video camera, Nest Thermostat and security panel. The kiosk also acts as a smart phone charging station with 16 portals so visitors can relax and power their devices while interacting with the smart home solutions.
