Perth IoT co. will take smart home tech to US market
Perth-based IoT company Quantify Technology is taking its home automation solution to the US in September following recognition by the Austrade Landing Pads Program, which focuses on introducing Australian scale-ups to the US market.
Currently making waves in Australia, Quantify Technology’s simple, modern and futureproof solution incorporates adaptable products that transform traditionally wired houses into smart homes using a Wi-Fi-connected flexible wall switch. The cloud-configured system allows all devices within a home to be controlled via touch, app or voice, with Amazon Alexa integration.
Being selected for the Austrade Landing Pads Program is part of Quantify Technology’s plan to capitalise on the US$28 billion smart home market in 2020.
Quantify CEO Brett Savill commented that the 90-day program will give Quantify the opportunity to benefit from Austrade’s extensive global network of contacts to accelerate its expansion.
“Being close to Silicon Valley and Seattle, the Landing Pads Program provides easy access to major technology companies, as well as potential partners in the building automation space. Our aim is to use this program to develop a short list [of] partners to work with for entry into the US in 2020,” he said.
Quantify is partnered with award-winning designer Natalee Bowen, director and creative brain behind Australian interior design business Indah Island. Bowen is known for her timeless, classic Hamptons style and has previously worked alongside top New York architects who have designed homes for Marc Jacob and Tommy Hilfiger in the Hamptons.
Bowen said Quantify’s products suit any interior design style and should be well positioned in the US market.
“Quantify’s devices are stylish, sophisticated and effortlessly simple. They have been designed to meet different aesthetics of interior design, which not only makes it easy for me to seamlessly integrate their products into my Hamptons designs, but also for any other designers with their own styles,” she said.
“Quantify offers many benefits — not just to the designer but to the electrician, builder and home owner. The US should get excited about what Quantify is bringing to market. They’ve got something unique going and it’s very exciting to be a part of it,” she said.
