Essence Group reveals new smart home security solutions

IoT company, Essence Group, has launched a new security and home management platform called WeR@Home+.

The offering will be piloted in partnership with European security services providers, including Securitas Direct Switzerland.

Building upon the company’s existing WeR@Home smart home management offering, WeR@Home+ leverages IoT technology, including connectivity to LTE networks, a new family of connected security devices, and a rich set of reporting and analytics tools for service providers.

WeR@Home+ represents our commitment to the mass deployment of smart living solutions that provide peace-of-mind to consumers, enabling them to simply and affordably manage their connected homes remotely, from anywhere and at any time,” said Hagai Enoch, COO and head of Essence Group’s security division.

“Providing a comprehensive smart home management system that is fully expandable and modular for any home environment, with self-installation and remote maintenance and configuration, we enable service providers across a range of industries, including telecommunications, insurance and real estate, to offer an array of value-added services to meet their customer’s specific needs while benefitting from increased ROI and more flexible business models.”

The new WeR@Home+ features a range of new capabilities, including an updated central hub with multiple connectivity options. The new hub includes 4G LTE, in addition to Wi-Fi connectivity, and an extended battery backup to ensure the system is always connected.

The high-definition, battery-operated video camera is the first in the industry to provide HD video over secure radio frequency according to the company, and is connected locally to the hub. This offers highly secure enhanced video verification and unlimited video storage with an extended battery life of up to five years.

The platform also comprises the S5 Family of multifunctional detectors, featuring a magnetic door/window sensor, a motion sensor with multizone spherical lenses for enhanced coverage, a curtain sensor, and a multifunction button that can be programmed to perform a variety of security and smart home actions.

Upgraded cloud capabilities provide unprecedented stability and flexibility for providers, including an interactive and fully customisable smartphone app and administration centre, with enhanced reporting and analytics capabilities, enabling them to customise and deploy solutions tailored to customer needs.
