Simple Home Builds its Wi-Fi-Based Automated Home Control Products on the Ayla IoT Platform
January 6, 2017
Ayla Networks announced that the entire Simple Home Automated Control line of home automation products has been built using Ayla’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform. The Simple Home products include Wi-Fi-based security cameras and alarms, motion and window sensors, smart LED light bulbs, doorbells, and smart plugs with energy monitoring capabilities.
“We chose the Ayla IoT platform because it provided exactly what we needed to get our Simple Home products ready to market, quickly,” said Elie Chemtob, CEO of Simple Home. “The Ayla IoT platform takes care of IoT security, interoperability and mobile app issues so we can focus on making convenient, energy-saving smart home products that are simple for people to install, use and afford.”
“The smart home is emerging as one of the most active markets for the IoT, and Simple Home is leading the way with its extensive lineup of plug-and-play smart home products that are radically simple to deploy and use,” said Rod McLane, senior director of marketing for Ayla Networks. “All the Simple Home products really live up to their name, enabling homeowners to get up and running in a couple of minutes, controlling all their Simple Home IoT devices using a single mobile app—and without needing a central hub.”
The Simple Home products use a home’s existing Wi-Fi network, thus saving users time, hassle and the expense of purchasing additional networking hubs. The easy-to-install Simple Home products can all be controlled by a single Simple Home mobile app—designed using Ayla’s Agile Mobile Application Platform (AMAP)—which can be downloaded for free onto multiple mobile devices. The only things customers purchase are the devices themselves; Simple Home charges nothing for the app, usage fees or monthly subscription costs.
Simple Home will showcase its Wi-Fi-based home automation products at CES 2017, being held January 5 to 8 in Las Vegas. More information will be available at Ayla’s CES Booth #41160 in the Smart Home Marketplace at the Sands Hotel, Halls A – D.
