“Ayla and Dimplex are working together to create and launch a connected gateway for the control of electric smart heaters in commercial and residential markets, which will be connected through the Ayla Networks cloud service,” said David Friedman, CEO, co-founder of Ayla Networks. “By using the Ayla software agent, Dimplex products will automatically and securely connect to the Ayla cloud service, enabling Dimplex to collect data from the electric heaters and giving customers enhanced remote management of their heaters’ operation.”

The Ayla agile IoT platform provides comprehensive device, cloud and mobile app connectivity for any kind of product. Ayla allows manufacturers to get secure, reliable connected products to market with minimal time, cost and effort—and to improve multiple aspects of their business based on the real-world knowledge gained from data generated by the connected devices.

Dimplex North America Limited, the world leader in electronic heating, is known for innovations such as its patented electric flame technology. Dimplex is using Ayla technology first for its Dimplex CONNEX™ product family, which includes convection and fan-forced electric wall heaters with programmable wireless control.

Ayla Agile Mobile Application Platform (AMAP) Speeds Mobile Control
