The company has stated that users, once they have set up the system, will be able to manage connected devices, view live video of their home from connected cameras and remotely manage access from the system’s app from anywhere in the world. Carrier also claim that by using Côr home automation system enabled devices, homeowners will be able to remotely carry out such tasks as unlocking their home for a scheduled service technician, programming their lights to turn on at dusk or setting their thermostat to adjust before they arrive home. The system will also avail of geolocation technology so that users can program tasks based on location – for instance, the system can be set up to disarm the home alarm system upon pulling into the driveway.

Carrier state that the Côr home automation system can connect and automate over 64 sensors, 250 Z-Wave enabled devices and 16 cameras in the home, while also offering the homeowner the choice of opting for self-home monitoring or upgrading to professional security monitoring.
