GreenPeak and People Power collaborate to use the IoT to help deliver smart home services that really matter to people
Mobile and cloud software and services company People Power has joined forces with GreenPeak Technologies to use its technology to introduce a home monitoring service, Presence Security.
GreenPeak is a leading low power RF semiconductor company and its technology allows partners to build wireless and maintenance-free solutions that can run on batteries for more than a decade. It offers a range of semiconductor products and software for smart home data communications and the Internet of Things (IoT). Better range, robustness to wifi interference, reliability and low cost were among the factors fuelling People Power’s decision to select GreenPeak’s radio chips. The newest GreenPeak radio chips also enable a combination of different network and profile layers running in parallel.
People Power, whose sectors include the senior lifestyle, home security and energy efficiency markets, offers three modular smart home solutions: Presence Security is a monitoring service which lets residents know when something happens at home when they are not there; while Presence Energy Pro shows historical energy levels and comparisons to current use. It can also control energy on a mobile device. Presence Pro Care, available shortly, helps carers take care of ageing or poorly family members by monitoring living patterns and sending alerts when something unexpected happens. It also enables any spare mobile iOS or Android devices to integrated into the system as free internet monitoring cameras with video alerts.
“As a wireless expert who has architected some of the world’s lowest power wireless sensor networks, I deeply understand the challenges of reliably connecting sensors in real world deployments,” said David Moss, president and CTO of People Power Company. “We work with GreenPeak’s technology because it has proven to be an industry game changer, delivering an unprecedented level of wireless range, battery life, and reliability, which People Power depends upon to offer engaging and meaningful services through large iconic brands and service providers.”
Both GreenPeak and People Power share the same vision, that IoT suppliers need to focus on delivering smart services, explains Cees Links, founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies. “Services that provide benefits that really matter to people, from comfort and convenience, to safety and security, and care and wellbeing,” he said. “By integrating our game changing silicon into People Power’s solutions, we enable service providers to offer wireless Smart Home solutions at an affordable end-user price. Service providers will get an open, future proof system that dynamically offers the latest services and will allow them to generate additional, recurring revenue streams.”
