Helsing, CEO for VEEDIMS, LLC. “We are very excited for the opportunity to partner with the most prestigious megayacht builder in the world with our smart data platform and patented IoT technology.”
With the grand opening of their new Benetti office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on October 29, 2014, Azimut-Benetti will showcase VEEDIMS’ IoT integrated technology in a real-world environment. The new office will feature models of Benetti megayachts; IoT controlled lighting, HVAC, windows and shades, multimedia and entertainment controls.
