Installation: The Daily 2018 | Observables AlwaysON Router Is On Message

The patent-pending IOBOT router from Observables offers configurable internal modules, for customisation by market application.

The device’s AlwaysON platform gives it the baseline functionality of a regular network router, but can also discreetly control phone and intercom, access control, security, network, automation, persistent communications and more. AlwaysON enables dealers to add a Software as a Service (SaaS) business model through revenue-based subscriptions determined by end-user service and functionality.

 

Security Sales and Integration | 30 Innovations Win Ovations

Winner: Observables Advanced Router. Observables’ IOBOT hardware coupled with AlwaysON software will help redefine how smart homes and businesses manage their security, communications, A/V and IT functionality, while providing systems integrators new avenues for RMR through a SaaS business model. Basically, this is a baseline router on steroids; specifically, a Software Defined Security Device (SDSD) programmable to your specific market application such as intercom, access control, automation, security, etc.

AlwaysON is an operating system that bridges hardware, Cloud and a mobile app allowing a single point for installation, service and customer interface. The IOBOT has USB, Ethernet and WiFi connectivity out of the box. AlwaysON enables dealers to monitor and manage IP networks, even when that network is down using the optional cellular module or satellite unit. observables.com

Security Sales and Integration | Webcast: Latest trends in security and home automation.

Julie Jacobsen, founding editor, CE Pro: “I really believe that our industry is really missing out on this trend of becoming both the physical and the digital security expert in the home. Certainly, the traditional manufacturers in the security industry are not going there… not just the home automation and the professional security monitoring but complete network security. It tells you where your weak passwords are, if someone’s encroaching on your network, unusual activities. So this is not a trend yet but it really needs to be. Agreed?”

Avi Rosenthal, Observables & IoT Consulting: “I agree, it’s definitely becoming a trend. There are some other companies out there like Observables, a new company in California that has an appliance that will also do a lot of cybersecurity… I do see this as a really prime opportunity for the dealers. There’s a lot of scare tactics out there with stories coming out every day about hacking and about the encroachment of privacy in private data and I think this is an opportunity. The security professionals have always been trusted in peoples’ homes to secure their premise. And it’s a very short leap for a homeowner if they trust the company to secure their premise then to trust them to secure their data. And so I think this is a prime opportunity for dealers to be able to resell services and apply value-added services to increase the stickiness of their relationships with their homeowners in not just premie security but cybersecurity as well.”

Security Info Watch | Observables Aims to Streamline IoT Installs for Security Dealers
“With the advent of the Internet of Things and the subsequent bevy of internet-enabled products that have hit the market in recent years, security dealers are now able to offer home and business owners a wide range of services that once seemed impossible. But as more and more IoT products and services become a reality in today’s increasingly connected world, it has also become more difficult for dealers to streamline the installation of so-called “smart” devices within a residence or business.

Enter Observables, a Santa Barbara, Calif.-based company founded by CEO Abe Schryer and CTO Ron Gans, which has developed a signal router dubbed IOBOT and its accompanying AlwaysOn cloud platform that seeks to revolutionize the smart home market for security dealers.”
