Essence, the leading provider of M2M, cloud-based connected-living solutions, has closed seven new deals in Europe, APAC, LATAM and Israel over the past three months for its Smart Living and Smart Care offerings.

The Smart Living offering - [email protected] - is a connected home solution that allows security, communications, and other service providers to easily bring the Internet of Things to their customers' homes. [email protected], a DIY wireless and battery operated solution, can be installed in less than 15 minutes. Managed via simple and intuitive mobile and web-based apps, the system is Z-wave compatible, allowing it to connect to more than 1,000 certified low power consumption devices, such as lighting control and thermostats.

[email protected] is self-learning, tracking patterns of activity and alerting the appropriate caregivers if things change. For example, if the refrigerator generally is opened six times a day and then is only opened once, or the resident had lower activity than the norm, the system automatically sends an alert to the caregiver and the family members.

Essence continues to be committed to professional security providers with the Smart Security offering, EverGuardTM, to ensure customers' business innovation and sustainable growth. Essence end-to-end solutions with hardware, software and services enable flexible business models and offer fast time to market.
