CES 16 - Essence Partners with GetSafe to Bring WeR@Home™ to U.S. Consumers

Smart Living Solution to be presented at CES 2016 in Las Vegas after the New Year

Essence, a leading provider of IoT, cloud-based connected living solutions, has partnered with GetSafe LLC, a leading home security company, to bring WeR@Home™ Smart Living solution to U.S. consumers.



WeR@Home is a fully integrated, user-friendly system for managing security, safety and automation devices in the home. It operates from a single, intuitive app incorporating virtually any smart-home Z-Wave compatible device, as well as a growing number of cloud-to-cloud integrations such as the Nest Learning Thermostat to enhance the user experience. As an end-to-end connected-living platform, WeR@Home allows service providers the ability to launch and expand their product lines with a single-vendor solution.

"We were acutely focused on finding the easiest to install, do-it-yourself home security solution with the most robust feature set, the highest security protocols, and a partner who understood the segment of the market we're targeting," said Kevin Magna, General Manager of GetSafe. "We needed a platform we could make our own, exceeding consumer expectations of what a self-installed security system should provide, establishing a foundation for us to pivot to applicable market driven integrations to expand our offering."

After more than a year of researching the right partners, GetSafe selected Essence's technology. It will be delivering a GetSafe branded version of WeR@Home for the DIY home security and automation market, utilizing an extremely intuitive and simple set-up. The system , which includes video monitoring services, is set to be launched in the U.S. market during the 1st quarter of 2016. Users can easily manage their entire home from mobile apps and also enjoy 24/7 professional alarm monitoring.

"We are very pleased that GetSafe is leveraging our solutions to expand into the smart home market," said Yaniv Amir, President of Essence USA. "GetSafe's go-to-market strategy closely mirrors our own view of the market, and we expect this new venture to be a great success."

These solutions, as well as Essence's other flagship product, the Care@Home™ Elderly Monitoring Platform, will be presented at the upcoming CES exhibition in Las Vegas, beginning January 6. Get further insight into the capabilities of the WeR@Home with a live demo at the booth.

WeR@Home and Care@Home, will be available for demo at CES in January at the Sands Convention Center Smart Home section, booth #70958.
