Mobile apps development and IT Solutions company, Beyond Evolution has announced their entry into the IoT space with the launch of a new IoT platform called 'BeConnected' and a slew of smart home devices that will be operating on it.
The venture has received a seed funding by angel investors such as Vineet Taneja, an industry veteran with years of telecom and consumer products experience and Kamal Puri Chairman Skyline Group UAE.
"Our endeavor is to develop IoT products that provide real value to the consumer, are simple to use and are at a highly affordable price so that they can be adopted by all. Our product therefore enables a consumer to remotely monitor and control any household appliance from his/her mobile from anywhere, thereby bringing tremendous convenience and ease in his/her life," said CEO and Co-founder, Saurabh Sharma.
"We wanted to make a device that can be bought and used with what we own now, without having to wait for higher end technology/upgrades in the future," added Sharma.
The team is working on an array of electronic devices that merge with current systems, so that customers do not have to upgrade in order to adopt these products. The ability to provide remote connectivity with their appliances is provided by a 'Be-Connected' mobile app which the consumers can easily download on their smartphones.
Beta version of the application has been successfully tested with a test-group and the product will be available for customers through the BeConnected website i.e. www.beconnected.in by early September, this year.
"Internet of Things (IoT) is a wide field and what attracted me to Beyond Evolution is that it addresses a real need of markets like India. Their platform allows for modular upgrades of existing household appliances and delivers real value to the consumer," said Vineet Taneja.
"I believe Saurabh and his team have the right skills and energy to take this idea to market. Their capabilities of product design, app development and wireless connectivity give me the confidence that they can make this idea succeed in the market place," added Taneja.
