Leading Internet of Things technology provider demonstrates
IOT platform for connected products and systems at CES 2014.
SAN FRANCISCO – January 2, 2014 – Arrayent (arrayent.com), a leader in virtualization technology for the Internet of Things, today announced a lineup for new connectivity solutions to be showcased at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show as part of its IOT Platform for Connected Products and Systems.
On the heels of its $11.9 million Series B Funding Round led by DCM Ventures and Intel Capital last month, Arrayent is announcing several new products at this year’s CES that are designed to enable manufacturers of consumer products, retailers and service providers to strengthen their relationships with consumers.
“Looking back at 2013, we saw industry leading consumer product manufacturers, retailers and service providers all jockeying to capture share of the growing connected consumer products market,” said Shane Dyer, founder and CEO of Arrayent. “At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show several major brands will be demonstrating in Arrayent’s booth an extensive lineup of new products all powered by Arrayent technology. In addition, we’ll be demonstrating advances to our Connect Platform that will accelerate their time to market.”
Arrayent is taking a unique and differentiated approach to the Internet of Things. Its device-virtualization technology minimizes the hardware and software complexity associated with adding Internet connectivity to consumer products. Device-virtualization places most of the compute power and software in the cloud, rather than in the device itself. By shifting complexity and functionality into the cloud, Arrayent customers reduce the cost of connected devices such as smoke detectors and thermostats while making them more reliable and much easier for consumers to install and use.
Among the highlights this year, Arrayent will be demonstrating a new low cost multi-protocol manufacture-ready design that supports ZigBee HA1.2, Z-Wave and Arrayent’s 900/868MHz protocol. Arrayent will also unveil its Mobile Framework, a new extension to the Arrayent Connect Platform. The framework accelerates mobile application development for partners building compelling, best-in-class user experiences on iOS and Android. Arrayent used the framework to develop a ‘smart home’ mobile application that lets a user remotely monitor and control connected devices such as lights, smart plugs, thermostats and sensors.
Arrayent’s broad ecosystem of customers, including Whirlpool®, Pentair and Chamberlain, will also be showcasing several new products at this year’s CES, all of which are powered by the Arrayent Cloud Connect Platform and will be demonstrated during the show at the Arrayent booth (# 21124):
