Innovative start-up monitorlinq has partnered with Somfy, expert designer of home automation solutions. The two companies will team to offer innovative new connected home solutions.
Through the partnership, monitorlinq will enhance the Somfy TaHoma home automation system with its enterprise-grade platform, adding services and alarms management.
This new Somfy offering, powered by monitorlinq, offers a complete suite of solutions to satisfy the needs and expectations of consumers’ in-home safety and wellbeing. A whole host of services are accessible from many devices, to simplify everyday life, improve personal safety, monitor family health, and help elderly people live autonomously for a longer time in their homes.
All domestic equipment controlled by the TaHoma system—critical energy-management devices, as well as devices connected to the monitorlinq service platform, such as activity trackers, personal alarms, weighing scales, and blood pressure monitors—are converged to be a part of the lineup.
This convergence allows enhanced intelligence in managing the wellbeing of family members and elderly people. User possibilities include the ability to monitor an elderly person who wakes up in the night and wanders lost inside their home or remotely monitor the correct administration of medication. Additional possibilities include receiving an alert when a child has not returned from school as normal or remotely allowing home access for an authorized care person.
Powered by monitorlinq, the new TaHoma interface is intuitive and simple to use, offering modules dedicated to home comfort, personal wellbeing, safety, and healthcare. The monitorlinq platform allows several levels of connectivity for professional services offering immediate options to dispatch critical alarms to security or tele-care experts.
The Somfy and monitorlinq convergence is a turnkey solution ready for integration with mobile network operators and insurance providers, as well as professional alarm and care centers encompassing security, intrusion, and telecare.
Jean David Miquel, CMO of monitorlinq, said, “Our cooperation with Somfy has been a real joint approach from the start and we are delighted to formalize this partnership. With the know-how of Somfy, a leader in home automation, and our background in managing connected services, especially in the dispatch of critical alerting towards professional help, we believe that this strategic alliance will improve the lives of people in their homes, in particular the elderly.”
Emmanuel Joumard, home automation director of Somfy, also stated, “Our partnership with monitorlinq is a natural fit and we are pleased with the opportunity to bring together our expertise. This integration enables Somfy to offer a turnkey system of products and services, which are unique and innovative that will revolutionize the quality of life for the consumer and their close family network.”
