Essence, a provider of M2M, cloud-based connected-living solutions, has closed seven new deals in Europe, APAC, LATAM and Israel over the past three months for its Smart Living and Smart Care offerings.
The Smart Living offering–WeR@Home–is a connected home solution that allows security, communications, and other service providers to bring the Internet of Things to their customers’ homes. WeR@Home, a DIY wireless and battery operated solution, can be installed in less than 15 minutes. Managed via simple and intuitive mobile and web-based apps, the system is Z-wave compatible, allowing it to connect to more than 1,000 certified low power consumption devices, such as lighting control and thermostats.
Essence Smart Care offering–Care@Home–is an in-home eldercare solution, enhancing quality of life for senior citizens while bringing peace of mind to family members. Care@Home is self-learning, tracking patterns of activity and alerting the appropriate caregivers if things change. For example, if the refrigerator generally is opened six times a day and then is only opened once, or the resident had lower activity than the norm, the system automatically sends an alert to the caregiver and the family members.
