PALO ALTO, Calif., April 6, 2011 -- iControl Networks, a leader in broadband home management, today announced its partnership with C24 Interactive, a brand within Connect24, which is under the Tyco Security Products Brand Portfolio. iControl will power an integrated solution that will enable the DSC Dealer and Central Station Monitoring partners to offer customers interactive home security and management features.
