GreenPeak Technologies, a leading low-power RF semiconductor company, announced that People Power, an award-winning software company offering cloud and mobile services, has launched Presence Security, built on GreenPeak technology. Both companies are important drivers in developing future proof, high quality Smart Home solutions for senior lifestyle, energy efficiency and home security. By counting on GreenPeak as their silicon supplier, People Power is able to fulfill its mission to build reliable, open and low cost residential networks that allow service providers to create new revenue streams by marketing new Smart Home services.
GreenPeak offers a wide range of IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee ultra-low power silicon products for use in Smart Home applications allowing partners to build wireless and maintenance free solutions that can run on batteries for over a decade. People Power selected GreenPeak’s radio chips for its market leading performance including better range, robustness to WiFi interference, high reliability and low cost. Also, the newest GreenPeak chips enable the combination of different network and profile layers running in parallel.
People Power offers three modular and interoperable Smart Home solutions. Presence Security is a home monitoring service with wireless sensors that notify residents when something happens at home when they are away. Presence Pro Energy shows historical energy usage levels, compares it to current use, and makes it possible to control energy directly on a mobile device. Available mid‑2016, Presence Pro Care helps caregivers take care of aging and sick family members, by monitoring daily living patterns and sending alerts when unexpected events happen. One of the unique features is that spare iOS and Android devices can be easily 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 they have 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 IoT vision, that IoT suppliers need to focus on delivering smart services. Services that provide benefits that really matter to people, from comfort and convenience, to safety and security, and care and wellbeing,” said Cees Links, founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies. “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.”
