SALUS Controls Chooses Ayla Networks to Connect Smart Building Products to the IoT

SALUS Controls, a provider of energy-control solutions to professional markets worldwide, is using Ayla Networks' Internet of Things platform to connect its SALUS suite of smart building products to the cloud. Leveraging IoT connectivity, products—including thermostats, smart plugs, and window and door sensors—can connect with one another through the SALUS Universal Gateway, and can be controlled via a free iOS or Android mobile app.

"Using the Ayla IoT platform to connect our products to the cloud gives us the flexible connectivity and broad protocol support we need today, as well as the confidence that we can scale our products far into the future," said Shen Owyang, the general manager of SALUS North America, in a prepared statement. "It will also enable our suite of smart building products to interact with other manufacturers' products through the Ayla IoT cloud."

SALUS plans to use the IoT data-analytics capabilities enabled by the Ayla IoT platform to design and deliver value-added services that further enhance building safety, comfort and convenience. "By offering a comprehensive and agile IoT platform, Ayla is making it easier for SALUS to expand from its primarily professional wholesale channels to the retail market," said David Friedman, Ayla Networks' CEO and co-founder, in the prepared statement. "The Ayla IoT platform also supports the company's different business models and specific product needs in its various global markets in Europe, North America and Asia."

Ayla's IoT platform provides device, cloud and mobile app connectivity for any kind of product, the company reports. The platform speeds up time to market for connected products, and also handles IoT security, performance, scalability and interoperability.
