Oberhausen, Germany and Dublin, Ireland, 15 October 2019 – ACCESS CO., LTD and Xunison today announced the cooperation on a solution based on the ACCESS Twine™ for Smart Home Platform and Xunison X-Brain smart device. The combined Smart Home solution will seamlessly integrate the Internet of Things (IoT) and multimedia worlds. The partnership will provide a unified solution that makes it easier for consumers to access and control household devices, including multimedia services, surveillance cameras and energy management devices, from a single mobile application.
The partnership provides Xunison with the ability to offer a complete solution to manage a variety of consumer use cases that occur in and out of the home. Combined with ACCESS’ Remote Access technology, the solution will enable end users to experience and manage their smart homes remotely, and to secure them by facial and voice recognition. Additionally, the parental control and rights management engine applied to the integrated Live TV, movie portfolio, TV shows and personal content sources enables the creation of personalized access to multimedia content and smart home devices.
“Consumers have a number of media and entertainment and smart home services available at their fingertips, but instead of making their lives easier they have to flit between numerous applications which is both time consuming and confusing,” said Dr. Neale Foster, CEO at ACCESS Europe, “The integration of ACCESS Twine™ for Smart Home with Xunison’s X-brain smart devices is a powerful and secure solution which solves this growing market challenge by merging the multimedia and IoT silos into a single offering.”
“The partnership with ACCESS gives us the opportunity to extend the reach of our X-Brain smart device to completely new use cases to unite the multimedia and IoT worlds with strong cyber-security concepts. The combined product is the missing piece of the true smart and secure home”, said Ryan O’Donovan, CEO at Xunison Ltd.
