Adoption of connected health devices highlights differences in UK and US

Devices like digital pedometers, fitness trackers, and GPS sports watches are more common in the UK, while large fitness equipment like treadmills, exercise bikes, and ellipticals that have built-in app support are much more common in the US. Larger US home sizes, with more space for in-home fitness equipment, may explain the gap in adoption. Adoption of other connected health devices are similar across markets. One-third of consumers in the UK report owning at least one connected wellness/fitness device while just 15% report owning a connected medical device, like a Wi-Fi weight scale or blood pressure cuff.

Nearly 50% of consumers in UK broadband households report of having a chronic health condition with obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, and asthma being the leading conditions. About half of the consumers with a chronic condition in the UK are interested in products and services that would help in managing their condition. Those with a chronic condition show a higher propensity to own a connected medical device and are good targets for remote patient monitoring or a health management program.

This study identifies adoption of connected health and personal emergency devices among UK consumers. The research also examines top caregiver pain points, and their willingness to pay for independent living solutions.

23% of US broadband households reporting intentions to purchase a smart thermostat in 2019

Smart Energy Summit addresses growth in energy management, crossover with smart home solutions, and impact on grid

October 22, 2019

Parks Associates research shows 23% of US broadband households are likely to buy a smart thermostat in 2019, which shows purchase intentions remain strong although many households still consider this product too expensive. The firm will host the eleventh annual Smart Energy Summit: Engaging the Consumer, February 17-19, 2020, at the Omni Austin Downtown in Austin, Texas, to examine opportunities for energy providers to convert intentions to actual purchases, the role of DIY, and innovations that could drive broader consumer adoption of energy management.

At Smart Energy Summit, more than 300 industry leaders from utilities, service providers, manufacturers, and technology companies will participate in panel discussions about the impact of direct consumer participation in energy markets and strategies to increase consumer engagement. Early event sponsors are FLO, Rapid Response Monitoring, Trusource Labs, Alarm.com, Austin Energy, Inspire, and Sprosty Network.

“The enthusiasm for this product comes despite most households believing that smart thermostats are not affordable, so the industry has a challenge in driving actual adoption past 11-13% of US broadband households,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “Utilities and other energy players are experimenting with subsidized offers and product-as-a-service options to expand adoption. At Smart Energy Summit, we will analyze different strategies, highlight factors for success, and discuss the features that can drive greater consumer engagement.”

Parks Associates research finds consumers bought roughly 5.8 million smart thermostats in 2018, generating $843 million in revenues. For future purchases, voice control and compatibility with smart speakers are important selling factors. Among households planning to buy a smart thermostat that also own a smart speaker, more than 70% consider it important that the smart thermostat they buy is compatible with their smart speaker.

Smart Energy Summit will feature the following topics:

The Memoreyes Video Safety System Prevents Crimes

The Memoreyes Video Safety System Prevents Crimes | #Memoreyes #CrimePrevention #Safety #SituationalAwareness | Memoreyes™, the Video Safety System that thinks and acts like a human, fights crime by being aware of its surroundings.

“I like to call it SAT, which is an acronym for Situationally Aware Technology,” says John Collings, founder and CEO, Memoreyes of Atlanta. “The system uses artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor the environment and to then deter unwanted behavior when necessary. Our system not only detects and documents events at high resolution for future use, but it’s designed to see the right thing at the right time.”

The underlying premise behind the Memoreyes system is SAT, and that’s achieved through the use of a highly effective sensor package comprised of thermal imaging, radar, and sound. In a word, it enables the AI portion of the system, which is called ‘The Director,’ to literally see a 360-degree area. In fact, the Memoreyes system is built upon the understanding that ‘There’s more that goes on outside a camera’s field of view than in it.’

Using a cellular App, the Model 360, the ‘All Property’ system, is able to differentiate between people who belong and those that do not. Once authentication takes place, the Director is able to track unknowns in relation to known individuals. The system makes decisions based on multiple criteria, such as interception paths, velocity of an unknown versus a known target, sounds, and others things.

“The Memoreyes system networks with other cameras in the system to follow an event to its conclusion. Each camera knows where to look all by itself,” says Collings. “No ordinary video system can do that!”

The Memoreyes App enables authenticated users to request that the system ‘follow’ them as they proceed through an outdoor area. A good application for this might be a young lady heading for the dorms as she leaves the library on a college campus. She can get immediate help as well by pressing the panic button. Another application is a retail store manager carrying a money bag as they make their way through a dark parking lot to their car for a drive to a local bank.

The Memoreyes system doesn’t wait for an authorized user to request help. If it ‘sees’ that an unknown target is moving at a high velocity in an intercept path with a known individual, the Director will begin flashing lights and issuing audible warnings. The Memoreyes Model 100, ‘Entrance System,’ is equipped with seven HD cameras–four that provide a 360-degree view, and three for license plate reading.

Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless


Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #WiFi #VideoSurveillance | The use of outdoor WiFi is often unreliable. But the engineers behind Memoreyes’ unique outdoor video safety systems have solved this problem, providing reliable, steady wireless connectivity between the Model 360 and 100 camera systems. No wires means no trenching and lower installation fees.

The Camera Housing

  • The Entrance System Housing contains seven cameras and two to three micro-computers.
  • Four cameras document cars as they enter, pass by, and depart; and the other three read license plates, including the detection of vehicles that travel the wrong way through an exit.
  • The All Property System housing is a 12’ tall “candy cane” that houses an HD camera, 2 micro-computers, and the Camera Director System.
  • The system runs on low voltage power (no 120VAC power install requirements), and it wirelessly connects to a NVR (Network Video Recorder) through Ethernet radios.
  • Camera housings are weatherproof, including sun shades and are rated from -20°F to 120°F.
  • Anti-tampering features detect camera-pole shaking, which initiates a local verbal warning through an in-housing speaker. This action also directs other cameras in the vicinity to video the event.

An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human

An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #VideoSurveillance #AI | I’d like to tell you about a new, revolutionary outdoor CCTV product that is like none other. I use the word “revolutionary” because it is just that. It leverages the use of quality Megapixel/HD quality, pan-tilt-zoom cameras with machine learning and an entirely newly developed series of audio, thermal, and radar-oriented sensors. Add to that an AI (Artificial Intelligence)-based learning control platform and you have an almost human-like control system with Big Data analysis. http://bit.ly/2KKKhEc

The focus of this new tech is outdoor protection. It uses thermal, sound, and radar to focus in on moving targets, along with a Smartphone app that stakeholders can use to alert the system when there’s a potential problem of an immediate nature. Cameras automatically  follow targets, which is not entirely new, but that’s just the beginning of the story.

The uniquely developed sensors allow the system to hear, see, and detect what the camera cannot see using a variety of unique sensors that truly makes this system revolutionary. Interaction between this interactive, integrated video surveillance system and stakeholders is audio/visual in nature, further deterring would-be assailants. 

Currently the system operates using a unique machine learning system, but an AI (Artificial Intelligence) processing system is now in the works and will soon be incorporated, giving the system the ability to react with even more speed and intelligence. Through Big Data analysis, over time the system will learn the habits and trends associated with each camera within each specific setting, thus enabling the system to  quickly identify departures from the norm. There’s more. 

I’d like to propose a complementary story on the tech with a short interview with the developer, who happens to be John Collings, the former inventor and developer of Uplink. A sidebar will delve into the advancements in AI and how they will be leveraged to make this new technology a must-have for office complexes, shopping malls, multiple-tenant housing, industrial complexes, chain stores, etc.

Kastle Systems’ new mobile SDK integrates with Rise Buildings’ platform

Kastle Systems’ new mobile SDK integrates with Rise Buildings’ platform | #TpromoCom #AccessControl #Security #Integration | Combination of digital access and property experience delivers seamless experience for building staff and occupants.

Kastle Systems International, a provider of managed security solutions and services, and Rise Buildings, a provider of an integrated proptech platform that manages all daily activities of a buildings’ staff and occupants, recently joined forces to integrate Kastle’s digital mobile access credential functionality with Rise Buildings’ occupant experience app.

“Access control is an obvious extension of the full ‘occupant experience’ that Rise Buildings provides, but access control and security are highly specialized functions, and to build the expertise themselves, in-house, could require a big investment and long-term commitment to a function that wasn’t their expertise,” Todd Burner, SVP product, Kastle Systems told SSN during an interview.

Digital access credentials for property occupants were embedded within Rise’s property experience platform. This strengthened the offering by integrating managed access and security capabilities along with other features including rent payment processing, package delivery notifications and pickups, maintenance requests, pre-authorized visitor access, amenity usage reservations and more.

Gartner says nearly 50% of PaaS offerings are now cloud-only

Gartner says nearly 50% of PaaS offerings are now cloud-only | #TpromoCom #Security #Cloud #Data | Nearly half of today’s platform as a service (PaaS) service offerings are cloud-only, according to Gartner, Inc. Currently, there are more than 360 vendors across 21 market segments, delivering more than 550 PaaS offerings. Forty-eight percent of these offerings are cloud-only. Not a single vendor has a foothold across all 21 segments, and 90 percent of them only operate within a single PaaS market segment.

“Business and technology leaders are shifting to strategic investment in cloud computing,” said Yefim Natis, research vice president and analyst at Gartner. “Cloud computing is one of the key disruptive forces in IT markets that is gaining mainstream trust.”

“Although many organisations anticipate a long-term retention of on-premises computing, the vendors of nearly half of the cloud platform offerings bet on the prevailing growth of cloud deployments and chose the more modern and more efficient cloud-only delivery of their capabilities,” said Mr. Natis. Enterprise IT spending for cloud-based offerings will surpass spending for noncloud IT offerings by 2022, according to Gartner.

The total PaaS market revenue is forecast to reach $20 billion in 2019, and to exceed $34 billion in 2022, according to the latest forecast from Gartner. In this shift to cloud, database and application platform services represent the largest market segments, with blockchain, digital experience, serverless and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) platform services as the newest.
