Icontrol Networks announced an initiative focused on what it sees as the next big data opportunity– bringing a new level of intelligence to homes through cloud-based analytics. As part of this initiative, Icontrol is partnering with mnubo, the Internet of Things (IoT) Data Analytics company, to add advanced data-driven services that accelerate the customized intelligent home experience.
After extensive research and analysis of its data, Icontrol has enlisted mnubo to help bring its vision to life. Together, Icontrol and mnubo are creating a real-time, built-for-IoT data analytics platform that delivers value-added services for deployment partners, and ultimately, the end consumer experience.
Icontrol Networks is the provider of connected home solutions, with software currently managing more than 26 million sensors and devices. The company's extensive network and longevity in the industry has produced a critical mass of data – in 2015 alone, Icontrol platforms will manage more than 100 billion smart home transactions worldwide. This accumulation of data allows Icontrol's service provider customers to tap into the latent potential of smart homes and deliver more intelligent services to consumers.
“Right now we're seeing a lot of single-device automation, but there hasn't been enough data for a true 'smart home' where devices work together seamlessly to better anticipate lifestyles,” said Letha McLaren, chief marketing officer of Icontrol Networks. “We're excited to partner with mnubo to show consumers how a smart home ecosystem can enhance their lives in ways they haven't even thought of yet.”
“Applying data science and machine learning to smart homes is the next big data opportunity,” stated Frederic Bastien, CEO of mnubo. “One of mnubo's major differentiators is our ability to productize real-life data science outcomes, and we look forward to helping Icontrol and their partners bring smart home to the next level with operational efficiencies, relevant product insights and richer data-driven services.”
