IoT in the home

Integrate rooms, devices and services in the home while simplifying the life of residents.

Whether in the connected, cognitive kitchen, living room or garage, residents can better manage their home and family life with IoT.

The connected home uses data to provide residents with greater transparency and the ability to analyze their consumption of energy and other home services or resources.

The connected home can even make recommendations to help residents conserve resources and manage cost.

Connected home sensors, data and alerts can improve the health and wellness of residents, and equip caregivers, health providers and concerned family members with the tools they need to monitor and care for residents.

The connected home combines capabilities such as video and audio, biometric sensors, presence detectors, leak detectors, and smoke, fire and air quality sensors to reduce risk of accidents or security problems.

The connected home can even alert residents, first responders and insurers if an adverse event does happen.
