Nestor Ayuso's curator insight, September 4, 9:31 AM

make sense as Verisure Innovation AB and Sigfox are member of ETSI LTN (Low Throughput Networks), ETSI M2M and oneM2M groups.

 

Securitas need not change the alarm unit, just update firmware as it already has a 868 MHz transceiver. One question: Is it compatible with current sigfox V1 protocol or sigfox will just update the SDR firmware in base stations to receive a new radio frame?

 

Next Securitas Direct alarm units will replace GSM modems and SIM cards by wifi/ethernet as main communication and sigfox as back-up. And will be sold bundled with Telefonica's Fusion quadruple-play (security, domotic, entertainment..)

Meet the winners of the Digital Enterprise Greenwich/SIGFOX Hackathon at the Connected Conference in Paris on the 18th and 19th of June

Meet the winners of the Digital Enterprise Greenwich/SIGFOX Hackathon at the Connected Conference in Paris on the 18th and 19th of June | SIGFOX | Scoop.it

On the 19th and 20th of May, Digital Enterprise Greenwich and SIGFOX organised a hackathon at Ravensbourne, in Greenwich, London.The event highlighted the potential of the SIGFOX connectivity solution, brought to you in the UK by Arqiva. The event gathered students from the University of Greenwich & Ravensbourne, as well as London based SMEs, in the common goal to have fun building innovative concepts around the world’s only Internet of Things (IoT) network. The winning team, “Life Link”, presented an innovative solution based on a quantified self wristband for elderly people. A simplified wristband that will amuse the users and provide motivation for being active and at the same time enjoying the security of having a helping hand only a button’s push away.


The “Life Link” team won development kits from the company Snootlab as well as SIGFOX subscriptions so that they can carry out their project. The team will be showcasing their concept at the SIGFOX booth during the Connected Conference and we invite you to come visit and learn about their concept and the innovative ideas they have for taking the project further.


The hackathon also resulted in many other brilliant concepts, including the runners up:

2nd: “The Internet of Stings” - An innovate way of easing the lives of beekepers, by keeping the bee-keepers up-to-date with the status of their hives.

3rd: “Bumper 2 Bumper” - A simple, yet extremely ingenious way of improving road safety, by connecting road barriers in order to alert maintenance staff of the real-time status of the barriers.

The hackathon was funded by the Digital Accelerator Programme, which is open to London- based SMEs interested in developing and applying digital technologies to Smart City solutions. The programme offers businesses the opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders to access new market opportunities and eligible companies can also benefit from a tailored programme of interactive and in-depth support.
The Digital Accelerator Programme is part financed by the Greater London Authority’s European Regional Development Fund Programme 2007 to 2013.


The Connected Conference also features a panel on Smart Cities, where Trevor Dorling from the Royal Borough of Greenwich, and Thomas Nicholls, from SIGFOX, will participate in a discussion on how cities can make use of the IoT.

Wearable tech for pets? Devices are not just for humans anymore | SIGFOX | Scoop.it

"By removing the cost and energy barriers of connectivity for the internet of things, [SIGFOX] enables two-way communication for connected devices through a simple and cost-effective wireless system," Jacobs told CBS News.

The SIGFOX on-demand wireless network has yet to be enabled in the U.S., but when that happens at the end of this year, it could help the so-called "Internet of Things" really take off. Affecting not only pet devices, it could also have real-world human implications."
