Miotta, formerly Mivatek, has unveiled its newest “Smarter Premises as a Service,” allowing global service providers to offer turnkey, RMR-based, smart home, enterprise, and care protection services. Miotta SPaaS multi-cloud software The new Miotta Smarter Premises as a Service, or SPaaS, relies on Miotta’s advanced mobile-cloud software The new Miotta Smarter Premises as a Service, or SPaaS, relies on Miotta’s advanced mobile-cloud software. Using this specialised software, service providers can offer their customers turnkey, automated, expandable video-IoT systems with integrated multipurpose and multi-location capabilities. These systems ultimately provide homeowners with collaborative video-verified security, safety, and care service, giving them the utmost peace of mind by ensuring that all respective authorised mobile users are alerted in the event of a security- or health-related event. Competing with ADT, Vivint, Comcast, and AT&T, Miotta’s SPaaS requires no professional installers, a significant cost savings. Miotta’s mobile-cloud allows service providers to offer interactive/collaborative, high-roof-count monitoring services, while dramatically reducing the providers’ capital and operating expenses and enabling them to expand their geographic range and scope of service. This translates to increased ARPU (average revenue per user) and allows Miotta’s B2B customers to collect valuable premises data, increase brand awareness, and strengthen customer loyalty. These security services are not only available to residential users but to enterprises of all sizes as well. Video-IoT security system Consumers will see considerable benefits from Miotta’s SPaaS offering. Starting with a simple video-IoT security system, consumers can easily expand their system to cover multi-location smarter homes, and business security systems covering video-verified security, safety, and care protection services in one single mobile-app. The addition of professional monitoring services provides consumers with an additional security safety net. Further, the video verification feature of the system will help to significantly reduce false alarm rates. The user collaboration app allows the system owner to manage video access privileges with video privacy and supervisory control The user collaboration app allows the system owner to manage video access privileges with video privacy and supervisory control. Owners and family members can be functionally separated from neighbors, friends, and concierge oversight while all are alerted simultaneously in the event of an emergency. The video-verified app also connects to professional monitoring call centers. The event video recording and verification prevents false alarms, and the recorded-event video evidence ensures prioritised emergency response from first responders. Smart Home solution “We are excited to unveil our newest Smarter Premises partnership program not only to security dealers but to global service providers,” said Joe Liu, Miotta CEO. “Our turnkey, video-integrated security, safety, and care mobile-cloud has made smart home and enterprise protection easy and affordable for service providers and consumers.”
Mivatek Smart Connect (formerly “Mivatek”) announces the signing of a partnership agreement with Asia Pacific Telecom (APT), whereby APT will use Mivatek Smart Connect’s plug-n-play Smart Home solutions and service. Mivatek’s mobile-cloud IoT platform and smart devices will form the foundation of APT's Home Guardian programme - a DIY MIY Smart Home service available to 2.6 million APT's customers. The new APT Home Guardian programme is the company’s first offering in the smart home arena. Home Guardian provides APT customers with a turnkey video-integrated interactive security, safety, and wellness service solution. Each system package gives users advanced ‘one-touch-to-responder’ features that allow them to make video-integrated protection and control with family, wherever they are. The collaborative protection design allows the user, their family members, caregivers, and even neighbours to protect their homes and achieve peace of mind. All Home Guardian systems can be easily expanded with additional Mivatek devices to cover security, safety and/or care capabilities Home security and safety There are three in-a-box starter packages available to APT customers. The entry-level package allows the user to create a basic Home Security system comprised of a Mivatek Cube Camera, two door and window sensors, and a hub for system control. All Home Guardian systems can be easily expanded with additional Mivatek devices to cover security, safety and/or care capabilities; the zero-pairing technology allows the expansion of accessories in seconds. Ultimately, these packages cover the areas that APT believe will bring their customers the most peace of mind: home security and safety; care of elderly to allow them to independently and safely in their own homes as long as possible (the ‘aging in place’ trend); and the care and safety of infants and pets. The creation of Home Guardian evolved as a result of APT’s desire to bring additional value and service to its cellular subscriber base, currently at 1.9 million and growing. The zero-pairing technology and the comprehensive capabilities of the Mivatek Smart Connect platform and associated devices, spanning from security, safety, care, and video, really impressed us" Cost-effective platform “We looked at a number of value-added solutions to make our wireless products and services more attractive,” said Oscar Kuo, APT Senior Project Deputy Manager. “The zero-pairing technology and the comprehensive capabilities of the Mivatek Smart Connect platform and associated devices, spanning from security, safety, care, and video, really impressed us.” Joe Liu, CEO of Mivatek Smart Connect, emphasised that this new project dovetails well with the company’s new focus on service providers, brand owners, and telco’s. “We are excited about serving global service providers and brand owners with our turnkey Smart-Connect-as-a-Service,” said Liu, emphasising the company’s commitment to a private label and OEM business strategy. “We are also thrilled that a leading telecom and cellular service provider like APT chose Mivatek's Smart Connect platform. We made video-integrated Smart Connect easy, reliable and cost-effective, and we’re confident that APT and its customers will appreciate these advantages.” Additional capabilities of the Home Guardian system: Multi-point installation: Use a single account to simultaneously manage devices in different locations and monitor multiple locations at the same time. Collaborative protection: Five family members can be authorised to receive instant video push notifications and five emergency contacts. Service in tandem: Strengthen the home security/care function, connect hospitals, care centres & security operators in series, providing users with more comprehensive services. Privacy encryption: Multiple patented firewalls and anti-intrusion technologies protect the user’s image privacy and account information.
Mivatek Smart Connect (previously ‘Mivatek’), an interactive Protection Service platform provider, announces the introduction of its ‘Smart Connect as a Service’ (SCAS). The new offering is targeted towards service providers brand owners, and telco’s for ODM Smart Home, Smart Care, Smart Business, and Smart Community solutions and service. Mivatek Smart Connect mobile-cloud, and auto-configurable security, safety, monitoring, wellness, and automation control systems will help global service providers and brand owners with connected data; automation control; and recurrent, fee-based protection service. Rather than the ‘piecemeal’ approach, Mivatek Smart Connect brings complete protection and automation packages to a wide range of applications, including retirement communities, HOA, enterprises, retail establishments and more. Mivatek Smart Connect’s SCAS cloud service provides a video-integrated smart home, smart security, independent living and uniﬁed communication system to shape a well-protected community ActionView Video for enhanced protection In retirement communities, for example, Mivatek Smart Connect’s SCAS cloud service provides a video-integrated smart home, smart security, independent living and uniﬁed communication system to shape a well-protected community that delivers connected service to beneﬁt all residents. The mobile-cloud can easily manage multiple connected devices, functions, locations, and users, while integrating the ActionView Video in one app to further sync the information to assigned recipients for immediate response and enhanced protection. The Sha Maison Smart Residential Community Protection project in Chiba, Japan, is a proof of concept for SCAS. When completed, it will showcase the capabilities of the SCAS offering (and will also be the first all-WiFi connected protection system in Japan). The project calls for all Wi-Fi connected video, security, safety, and independent living devices for mobile-cloud, video-verified collaborative protection of all 700 units, as well as common areas in Sha Maison, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sekisui House, Ltd. Mini IP Cameras, Battery-Powered Wi-Fi Door/Window Sensors, Panic Buttons, Motion Sensors, and Sirens are used to cover each unit; Outdoor IP cameras cover the units as well as the common areas. (SCAS can work with Mivatek Smart Connect smart devices or devices from a third-party provider) When a device is triggered, family members will get mobile video alert, and emergency contacts will get mobile push notifications Mobile-cloud Command Centre The heart of the Sha Maison system is a powerful self-monitored mobile-cloud Command Centre managed by Mivatek’s cloud platform. The platform software is intuitive, and programmable to satisfy a variety of interactive protection applications. A community operator oversees the system using an iPad/tablet and or web browser. When a device is triggered, family members will get mobile video alert, and emergency contacts will get mobile push notifications. If there is no response within one minute, the community operator will receive an alert, after which the operator can communicate with the residence in the app directly and then call the first responder accordingly. Additional level of security and verification “Our new SCAS service allows communities, businesses, and other enterprises to capitalise on the benefits of a comprehensive, fully integrated, smart protection system,” said Joe Liu, CEO of Mivatek Smart Connect. “It’s no longer necessary to put together a system from disparate parts and have to worry about connectivity, interoperability, and overall functionality. “With SCAS, the enterprise gains an entire system that ensures all parts work together seamlessly. And the video capability brings an added level of security and verification that makes the system even more efficient.” The foundation of the SCAS offering is the Mivatek platform, a proven reliable, easy-to-install, easy-to-use, home, business, & community protection service cloud-app that integrates ActionView video with security, safety, care, automation, energy, data acquisition, in-app communication, and rich ecosystem partners’ control in 1-app for service providers’ turnkey value-added B2C connected protection service. The Mivatek mobile cloud supports 11 leading ecosystem partner’s smart devices.

This solution allows installers to generate new recurring revenue streams and enhance existing offerings.

Alarm and event video reporting The MivaTek Mobile Cloud supports plug-n-play, video-verified collaborative-alarm and event-video reporting, which guarantees prioritised response, reduces casualty, property losses, and false alarm fines, as well as lowering consumer insurance premiums. With more and more law enforcement agencies requiring video verification to confirm an emergency event, this capability cannot be overstated. Joe Liu, CEO of MivaTek, says that his company’s offerings give pro dealers valuable tools to generate extra RMR, always a challenge in an industry plagued by short profit margins. “For the pro dealer, any opportunity to increase RMR [recurring monthly revenue] is a welcome addition to their sales arsenal,” he said. “Through Interactive WorldWide Alarm, we are providing them with solid RMR potential while providing their customers with high-quality systems to keep them safe and secure.”
