SmartBeings Partnering with Telecommunications Companies to Bring WooHoo into Homes Everywhere at a Low Cost

WooHoo features a 360-degree rotating camera, and a full 7” screen that allows for more than just the usual commands you find in most other smart home assistants.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartBeings, Inc., the developers of WooHoo™, the market's first AI-based Digital home assistant, aims to revolutionize the face of AI with WooHoo. Featuring an interactive user experience and technologies that allow connectivity with other smart devices, WooHoo creates a truly connected home. SmartBeings will be demonstrating WooHoo at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

WooHoo, a smart technology enabled AI device will completely change the way homes are connected that other smart-home devices have not yet tackled. WooHoo features both facial and voice recognition, a 360-degree rotating camera, and a full 7" screen that allows for more than just the usual music and weather commands you find in most other smart home assistants.

WooHoo promises to practically eliminate the issue of a slow smart home through two means; the use of a mesh networking chips like ZigBee and ZWave in the WooHoo device, and partnerships with telecommunications. The integration of a ZigBee and ZWave chip allows WooHoo to act as a complete IoT hub, automatically connecting with other IoT devices (more than 1500+ devices out of the box), such as light bulbs or thermostats, rather than needing to go via the Wi-Fi connection, thus solving any major latency issues.

The SmartBeings team is in talks with telecommunications companies to make it even easier to bring WooHoo's into each and every home. The partnerships would allow users to purchase WooHoo directly from the telecommunications company - much like a mobile phone - and pay a subscription fee monthly to use WooHoo via a 4G LTE connection. This not only frees up Wi-Fi, it extends WooHoo's capability to completely connect with the ability to make phone calls and send text messages directly from the device.

WooHoo will launch in Q2 2018 with Telco partners for distribution in the US, UK, Japan, Korea & Singapore. Voted by CRN as the Top 10 Most Innovative products to see at CES 2017, SmartBeings is looking to raise another round of funding to assist in their global expansion and upcoming product release as demand for WooHoo increases on a more international level. The SmartBeings team will be demonstrating the uses of WooHoo at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, NV, from January 9-12 at Eureka Park Marketplace Booth 51930.
