Global home improvement retailer Lowe's is at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week to showcase its new cloud-based home management system called Iris. The system is designed to give homeowners the ability to control and interact with their home from anywhere using a smartphone or computer. Just a few days after its CES launch announcement comes word that the first home equipment makers have agreed to integrate their products with the Iris system.

Among them is Orbit Irrigation Products, a U.S. outdoor irrigation products OEM. The company's Easy-Set Smart Irrigation Timer and Smart Landscape LED Light Controller will connect to the Iris system and offer a smartphone control through the Iris web interface.

PetSafe also announced it will develop a line of smart home pet products to work with Iris.

Iris will be available in Lowe’s stores and on Lowes.com in mid-2012.
