Essence partners with GetSafe to bring WeR@Home to U.S.
WeR@Home was created as a way for users to manage security, safety and automation devices in their homes from a single app. The app can incorporate any smart-home Z-Wave compatible device, as well as a growing number of cloud-to-cloud integrations, such as the Nest Learning Thermostat. The platform was also created as a way to allot service providers the ability to launch and expand product lines with a single-vendor solution.
"We were acutely focused on finding the easiest to install, do-it-yourself home security solution with the most robust feature set, the highest security protocols, and a partner who understood the segment of the market we're targeting," Kevin Magna, General Manager of GetSafe, said in a statement. "We needed a platform we could make our own, exceeding consumer expectations of what a self-installed security system should provide, establishing a foundation for us to pivot to applicable market driven integrations to expand our offering."
"We are very pleased that GetSafe is leveraging our solutions to expand into the smart home market," Yaniv Amir, President of Essence USA, also said in a statement. "GetSafe's go-to-market strategy closely mirrors our own view of the market, and we expect this new venture to be a great success."
The system, which includes video monitoring services, is intended for launch in the U.S. market in the first quarter of 2016.
WeR@Home and Care@Home will be available for demo at CES in January at the Sands Convention Center Smart Home section, booth #70958.
