USE CASES

Here are 3 markets ripe for user experience and operational optimization are home automation, office building technology, and hospitality.

Home Automation

Home Automation has made great strides over the last 10 years.  However, current residential IoT systems often respond to user prompts rather than user presence. As a result, users must manually adjust systems rather than the system autonomously adjusting to the homeowner’s presence. 

 

Enter Network Presence Sensing™.  NPS™ will allow home automation systems to respond to the user’s presence and thereby create a truly smart home IoT environment.  Due to it’s distributed nature, NPS™ enables each room to understand that there is someone in the space, and then home systems like lighting, security, HVAC, and more can respond appropriately.

Office Building Technology

Sensor output aggregation has become an important piece of the building automation landscape.  With that said, wide gaps in operational & UX optimization persist.  Buildings are ready for a new technology that can grow with the needs of the building owner and occupants rather than being constrained to a legacy piece of hardware and technology.

 

Enter Network Presence Sensing™.  With its unique architecture, NPS™ can add critical insight into office building management through its Change Detection, Presence Detection, and People Counting data classes, enabling occupants to use their meeting spaces and offices more efficiently.  Further, security and HVAC systems can now be optimized due to NPS’s™ innate ability to simultaneously run multiple detection algorithms on one set of hardware.

Hospitality

Guest safety and experience are paramount in today’s competitive climate.  As it relates to these business functions, accurate guest room and overall building occupancy data can make the difference between a 1 time stay and a lifetime customer.  Unfortunately, current technology has limited functionality and scope and often leaves guests wanting.

 

Enter Network Presence Sensing™.  NPS™ provides critical, never-before-seen insights into human activity without sacrificing individual privacy.  Different detection algorithms can provide real time, custom presence information to mechanical systems, lighting, security, housekeeping, hotel management and more; all while lowering both capex and opex.

INDUSTRY CHALLENGE / INNOVATION

IoT Manufacturers’ Dilemma

INDUSTRY CHALLENGE

IoT device manufacturers encounter a perpetual cost structure of cloud, maintenance, and update fees after the one-time sale of their product. Meanwhile, IoT user expectations are increasingly aligned with the improved lifetime performance of smart phones due to new and updated applications that provide ever-growing consumer benefits.

 

INNOVATION

Ivani’s NPS™ technology gives IoT manufacturers the ability to provide a benefits-rich experience that connects the company more intimately to their user, allows the IoT device to get better over time, and provides a low risk recurring revenue opportunity for the life of the hardware.

Lighting

INDUSTRY CHALLENGE 

Consumers seek newer, more intelligent lighting experiences without the trade-offs of traditional motion sensors. Manufacturers currently rely on legacy technology like Passive Infrared sensors to provide automated user experiences that restrict spaces and offer limited success within the home.

 

INNOVATION 

Ivani’s Presence Detection leverages manufacturers’ existing devices to enrich the autonomous lighting experiences of users without traditional motion sensor hardware trade-offs, including the need for unsightly hardware (wired or wireless), a limited conical detection field, predetermined timer dependence, and line of site activation.

Security

INDUSTRY CHALLENGE 

Due to hardware and installation labor costs, security monitoring companies often go without a return on investment for up to three years following the customer acquisition process. Additionally, newer IoT system competitors are changing consumer pricing expectations and shrinking industry margins.

 

INNOVATION 

Through partnerships with some of the world’s largest and most respected IoT manufacturers, Ivani’s Network Presence Sensing™ technology lowers customer acquisition costs for security monitoring companies while enhancing the end user experience by running multiple NPS™-enabled functionalities on the same hardware.

HVAC

INDUSTRY CHALLENGE 

Facility managers must lower building operating costs and face increasing pressure to become more environmentally sensitive. Meanwhile, commercial building users expect a seamless, high tech experience to promote a happy and healthy work environment.

 

INNOVATION 

Through an integration of Ivani’s NPS™ People Counting technology and VAV control systems, facility managers can lower HVAC-related energy consumption by an average of 30% while elevating the commercial building user experience through autonomous lighting control and work space optimization.
