Developer from Urals offers solutions for ‘smart house’ control
15 Dec '15
iRidium mobile, a Urals-based IT developer, is creating technological process control and automation platforms for ‘smart house’ systems, intelligent buildings, and Internet of things devices, the Skolkovo Foundation website reported.
To achieve the goal, the company from the city of Nizhny Tagil has secured $313,000 grant funding from the Skolkovo Foundation.
By now, the developer came up with a number of products, the source said. First of all, it’s special software to control various solutions for automation. Also, a special IT tool has been designed, enabling users to promptly develop a control app compatible with the world’s most widespread operating systems, including Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac OS.
“When installing various elements of a ‘smart house,’ such as lighting, temperature or multimedia control systems and other solutions, one is just expected to get down to a computer, open our plug-in and take little time to create an interface which can then be downloaded to a tablet. So, a system is sensor controlled from a mobile gadget,” said Nikolai Rusanov, iRidium mobile’s director for development.
The primary market for the iRidium mobile product includes corporate integrators that do automation projects for residential and office buildings and other real estate projects. The Urals-based developer reportedly expects to roll out an inaugural version of its product for integrated ‘smart house’ control in 2016 already.
