OpenPeak, Inc. creates Digital Life accessories that enable intelligent, seamless, wireless control of digital media, consumer electronics, and home systems. The product family includes a series of remote controls, UPnP interface bridges (WiFi to IR, Zensys, and serial), and server software. The design is user -focused with an emphasis on usability, simple setup, auto discovery, and an intuitive interface for experience -based control. The software leverages emerging technologies such as Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), WiFi, and Z -Wave mesh networking.

Recent research from Parks Associates finds that eight million U.S. households used wireless data networks at the end of 2004 and this figure will grow to 21 million by the end of 2009.

"Both consumer demand and efforts by product developers and carriers led to the emergence of truly mass -market digital home products and services in 2005," said Kurt Scherf, vice president and principal analyst with Parks Associates. "The work by OpenPeak to deliver to consumers a more seamless user experience will be critical in continuing the momentum in place."
