Mivatek to create Japan’s first all-WiFi connected protection system
Mivatek has announced it has been awarded a Smart Residential Community Protection project for the Sha Maison development in Chiba, Japan.
When completed this project will be the first connected all-WiFi device protection system in Japan. It calls for all WiFi connected video, security, safety and independent living devices for mobile-cloud, video-verified collaborative protection of all 700 units, as well as common areas in Sha Maison.
“Thanks to mobile-cloud and internet of things (IoT) device advancement, the video-verified, smart security, safety, independent living and healthcare trend has taken hold in smart homes and communities worldwide. Based on the initial success of the Sha Maison project, we believe our turnkey ‘Protection as a Service’ platform partnership/OEM business is well poised to grow globally,” says Mivatek chief executive Joe Liu.
Mini IP cameras, battery-powered WiFi door/window sensors, panic buttons, motion sensors and sirens are used to cover each unit, while outdoor IP cameras cover the units and common areas.
At the heart of the system is a powerful, self-monitored, mobile-cloud Command Centre managed by Mivatek’s cloud platform. The platform software is intuitive and programmable, with a community operator overseeing the system using an iPad/tablet and/or web browser.
When a device is triggered, family members receive a mobile video alter and emergency contacts get mobile push notifications. If there is no response within one minute, the community operator will receive an alert and the operator can then communicate with the residence in the app directly and call the first responder accordingly.
Residents also have the option to designate a CMS call-centre or a community security operator as a video recipient to speed up the emergency response time.
“Battery-powered WiFi smart devices are a dream come true for IoT system designers and connected service providers. Every smart device can now communicate to the cloud directly without a bridge/gateway, a device power-management technology for which we won a patent,” says Joe.
“We integrate these devices with our globally managed cloud-of-clouds protection platform, creating a comprehensive, expandable platform that we can OEM to global service providers for connected premises, advanced DIY, MIY peace of mind service and recurring monthly revenue.”
