Other services include an on-demand concierge service, a full entertainment and media system integration, as well as remote connection and control of integral water, heat, and energy systems in the home.
“The reality is, many of the major players in the smart object and technology market are building a walled garden around their products and are trying to lock people into their services,” said CEO of Globus Eight, Harvard Business School alum and former leading executive at IBM and Airtel, Alok Sinha. “LifeOn enables people to pick and choose their devices, without having to jump over compatibility issues and complicated connect problems. We are very excited to bring to our customers in India the future; Today.”
By 2020, the global IoT economy will be worth an estimated $3.5 trillion. Following the trend, 44% of the IoT projects on kickstarter reach their goals, which well above the average success rate of other technological products. With every new piece of technology, device or service that is brought to market, the value proposition of an integration platform like LifeOn increases significantly.
LifeOn differentiates itself from other IoT integration platforms by offering real-world services, such as the on-demand concierge option. In terms of security, LifeOn sets itself apart by offering a variety of solutions including secure cloud-based storage as well as an on-prem and hybrid solution, ensuring the user’s data is always protected. What’s more, LifeOn enables lifestyle-focused customers to acquire their smart devices and then rely on LifeOn to customize the user interface and to deliver complete device integration for their smart lives.
“We’re seeing a growing demand for smart objects and systems and people are expecting easy integration with their lives, homes, vehicles media, and more. LifeOn is here to help them do this in a straightforward, hassle-free way. We’re looking forward to a time where you will be able to simply ‘think’ and change your TV Channel or do other automation tasks. That day is on our feature roadmap.” added Sinha.
