Connected by TCP® now Integrated with Wink™

Automated home lighting system can now be controlled anywhere with the Wink app

AURORA, Ohio, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Technical Consumer Products, Inc. (TCP), a leader in energy efficient lighting innovations, has integrated its automated home lighting system, Connected by TCP, with Wink, a software platform that allows consumers to control and manage connected home products from multiple brands in a single app. With the integration, users can control their home lighting systems along with other Wink compatible products from any location.

Connected by TCP now includes Wink technology built right into the Connected by TCP system, with no other accessories required. Within the Wink app, Connected by TCP can be controlled from anywhere and allows users to manage their lighting along with other smart home products.  

"Turning the lights on and off in the house is a major part of our day-to-day routine, and with Connected by TCP users can easily control and customize their lighting in the palm of their hand," said Dave Geraci, Connected by TCP product manager. "As the smart home landscape continues to expand and improve, we look forward to working with Wink in order to provide consumers with added convenience and security."

Connected by TCP utilizes LED technology, operates on a Wi-Fi network and can be controlled by any iOS or Android-enabled device, allowing instant control of any home or business lighting system. By linking to a home's existing Wi-Fi network, users can easily program a LED lighting system to turn on and off while arriving at or leaving the house, or dim bulbs to create a desired ambience. Connected by TCP, powered by Greenwave System's award-winning cloud-based Home2Cloud platform, also enables users to create a Smart Control routine using free app software that will automate the bulbs to personalized settings that manage their lighting throughout the day. The smart routine can be programmed for any time period and used while home and away.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
