Thread Group Selects Ubiant as First Winner of Innovation Enabler Program

WHO:

The Thread Group has selected Ubiant®, a cloud platform focused on revolutionizing energy management, as the first winner of its Innovation Enabler Program.

What:

The Thread Group believes that startups can be instrumental in contributing to the innovation in the connected home space. However, they might lack the funding to join the industry consortiums developing the protocols that will govern the ecosystem.

To address this, the Thread Group Innovation Enabler Program provides innovative young companies with the opportunity to play a role in defining the connected home through access to Thread technology and the consortium’s membership. Winners are selected quarterly, based on the creative potential of their ideas, and will receive up to 18 months of complimentary contributor-level membership to enable them to build new products using Thread technology. Interested companies can learn more about the Thread Group at threadgroup.org to join and participate in the upcoming All Members Meeting held in July.

Why:

Thread’s networking protocol will be implemented into Ubiant’s Hemis® solution, the first real estate cloud platform to be empowered by high-end learning abilities. Mimicking our five senses, Hemis understands its environment by collecting and analyzing vast amounts of information in real time, such as temperature, humidity, brightness, CO2 and human presence. Ubiant will incorporate the Thread specification into the Hemis platform to seamlessly and securely connect it with other devices in the home.
