Connected living solution provider Essence has expanded its worldwide presence by signing agreements with Oryggismidstodin Iceland and Securely of New Zealand for Essence’s flagship technologies, WeR@Home and Care@Home.
WeR@Home is a fully integrated IoT connected living solution that offers a comprehensive security and safety system and full home management from anywhere, on any screen. It is compatible with Google Assistant, Nest products, Yale Lock, and August Smart Lock, as well as a multitude of other Z-Wave compatible devices. And Care@Home is an aging-in-place senior-care solution that leverages award-winning AI tech.
Essence creates an ecosystem from hardware and software to service and support. All Essence technologies come with cloud-based front- and back-end systems to streamline the integration and adoption process of home-based IoT services. Remote security management with user apps and a complete cloud management system have plug-and-play connections to service providers’ existing systems, accelerating time to market.
Oryggismidstodin is a leading security service provider in Iceland for homes and small businesses who wanted to upgrade its services and product portfolio by introducing interactivity and smart home capabilities. “We were looking for a new generation of security system, with smart home options and user-friendly apps at an affordable price for regular users,” said Audur Lilja, Executive Director of Sales of Oryggismidstodin Iceland. “Only reliable and field-proven products that will increase loyalty and revenues while keeping costs down would do. That’s a lot, but Essence delivered them all. Sales are up 40% beyond our projections.”
On the other side of the globe, Securely, a subsidiary of Electra, a 95-year-old electricity distribution company, is one of New Zealand’s leaders of IoT home management and senior aging-in-place solutions.
“We were committed to finding the most thorough, home management tech available, and Essence was the clear choice,” said Chris Barber, National Sales and Business Development Manager, Securely. “When we found the range of options available through the WeR@Home and the Care@Home suites – from home automation to elderly care, we were sold.”
“With the increasing adoption of IoT and the desire of all people to have more interaction with their homes and security, our ground-breaking connected home solutions are a perfect fit because they address both the needs of the service provider and their customers,” said Ronnie Nir, GM Essence Smart Living. “All indices point to our continued rapid expansion well into the future, and we see the developed economies in Asian market as a significant driver.”
