Sensative launches Yggio – a technology-independent, open and secure platform and marketplace for property services
Lund/Las Vegas. 5th January 2017.
Sensative proudly announces the launch of its open, secure connectivity platform and marketplace for property services, called Yggio. Pronounced igg-io, Yggio enables multipoint-to-multipoint communications, offers device and service interoperability and secures personal data privacy via an encrypted permission layer for all data exchange activities.
Yggio lets property owners and tenants enjoy full control over devices and utilities used for property and tenant services in their building — eliminating excessive costs and lack of synergies. Technology and service partners use the open, secure Yggio platform and service marketplace to rapidly deliver their service applications within facility management, elderly and home care services, home security, smart apartments, homes and smart agriculture and more.
The name Yggio is based on the tree of life in Nordic mythology, called Yggdrasil, which plays a major role gathering and distributing all knowledge and wisdom through its roots and branches. The Norse gods gathered at Yggdrasil, where they settled matters in their community. The Yggio platform and marketplace firmly connect all Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices with high-value service delivery solutions. The platform uses a public API, which makes it possible for device manufacturers and service providers to use the Yggio platform.
Yggio is a major new investment area for Sensative, and it follows Sensitive’s global success with its ultra-thin sensor called “Strips”, which was launched at CES 2015. Sensative is in the process of establishing many IoT services onto Yggio, working closely together with a range of innovative technology, device and service partners. Several IoT services are piloting and testing Yggio with end-users and customers in Sweden within the areas of home security, facility management, heating, ventilation, and eHealth.
“Already before the launch of our Strips sensors we knew that our mission in life would lead us to build a secure and open connectivity platform for IoT services”, states founder and CEO Mats Pettersson. “Given our strong background in mobile technology developing from closed dialing devices to open platforms for millions of digital services, we all knew we just had to use this know-how to build a very scalable, open and multi-purpose platform. Now we are looking forward to building a strong and dedicated eco-system of partners for the property services market. We are grateful that our partner CTS supports our efforts and is displaying Yggio and some of our service partners in their stand at CES. Our service partners include Apptimate, Cenvigo, FM Technology, Alleato and Goda Grannen.”
