Owned by Blaze Automation, B.One is a product which will revolutionise the field of home automation and security. It features a custom designed multi-layered PCB board running on parallel processing architecture using a proprietary algorithm that quickly learns the behaviour and preferences of the user. The B.One thus improves the control of the user over his/her home by anticipating, predicting, and notifying certain key activities. With several processors working in tandem, B.One ensures that every alarm and alert is communicated in real time to the intended destination. B.One Smart Hub incorporates NFC technology to the sensors, making it easily configurable and usable for all.
The B.One home automation system is the answer for all those people who want the functionality of their home ecosystem to be literally at their finger tips. The project was initially launched on Kickstarter where it quickly rose to ‘fame’, cementing its spot in their ‘Top 10 most popular tech projects’. The project was funded most successfully just a few days ago with the help of social media and word of mouth and now available for pre-order at www.b1hub.com.

Chairman of Blaze Automation, Arjun Valluri said, “We are happy that we were able to complete the project within our estimated time. We have accomplished the goal of building one of the smartest IoT Hubs and are ready for production. We hope to ship to all the major countries of the world soon and make B.One an essential household necessisity.”
CEO of Blaze Automation, Sridhar Ponugupati said, “When technology and safety are integrated with home comforts, I think something truly unique is achieved and that is exactly what we have tried to encompass within B.One.”
To further expand its reach into international markets, B.One has also partnered with Stay Kool Japan LLC and its affiliate Japan Edge (jED) in an exclusive distribution agreement for 25000 units over the next 12 months, thus opening up the Japanese market which can prove to be a highly profitable venture for the company.
Admiral Natsukawa, retired Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff at Japanese Self Defense Force and board member of Stay Kool Japan LLC, said, “Japan is an ageing society that needs to simplify daily lives. Internet-of-Things is not nice-to-have; it’s a necessity for us. It seems B.One can solve a lot of headache for tech-challenged yet gadget loving Japanese. I am amazed how much punch is packed into this sleek small device”.
Stay Kool and jED have opened up the Japanese markets for various industries and many of them have shown a good ROI in Japan. Ash Roy, the Representative Director of Stay Kool Japan said “Japan has the highest penetration of home, office, retail and apartment security systems in the world, but these systems are antiquated, expensive to maintain and need an immediate upgrade. The addressable market is every single household, 50 million of them, and millions of retail outlets and office spaces”.
B. One is being featured at the India Gadget Expo which is being held from 18th-21st September 2015 at Hyderabad. It is being unveiled to the public for the first time and people at the expo have the chance to experience home automation by the smartest hub ever made!
