The Z-Wave Alliance, an open consortium of companies deploying Z-Wave, has announced the first winner of Z-Wave Labs. BeON Home, a preventative security and safety company, is the program’s first winner and will receive Z-Wave Alliance membership and access to Z-Wave IoT ready 500 series development kits.
BeON Home uses LED bulbs that learn and replicate lighting behaviours to create the illusion of home occupancy and provide safety lighting in emergency and power outage situations. The addition of Z-Wave will enable the BeON system to provide a more seamless experience for owners of traditional security systems and whole home automation systems. BeON Pro, the professional version of the system launched at ISC West 2015, gives security dealers a new way to augment their offerings and sell an additional layer of preventative security and safety to complement existing products and traditional security panel systems.
“We were excited from the moment we saw the BeON Z-Wave Labs entry and learned about their innovative solution and plans to integrate Z-Wave into that solution,” said Raoul Wijgergangs, interim chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance, “The company’s unique preventative safety and security system will join our industry leading member companies in the rapidly growing IoT market.”
Alexei Erchak, CEO of BeON Home. “It became very clear to us that developing a Z-Wave module for our intelligent preventative security system would be a key priority for us and the Alliance’s resources in security and smart homes will allow us to speed up this development. We plan to be the first company to provide a Z-Wave based preventative security system.”
