Tantiv4 is pleased to announce the unveiling of its flagship product, FetchitGO, at Connect 2016, the city’s premier event in ICT. The event, organized jointly by the Confederation of Indian Industry and the Government of Tamil Nadu, is being held for the 16th time. This year’s theme is “Building the Digital State: Fostering Ecosystem”.
Mr. Lokesh Johri, CEO, Tantiv4 explained the advantages of Open Interoperability and Integration, adding “It is normal for each vendor to try and build silos for its products, such that you have to be buy controllers, actuators, and services from the same Company. However, as we have seen with the growth of smartphones, consumers much prefer an Open Platform which will work with multiple service providers. Today, we can deliver that”.
FetchIT provides a single view to control and trigger IoT devices, with up to 16 programmable buttons. Each button is customizable by the end-user, to trigger actions. Unlike other products available, FetchIT can integrate with multiple ecosystems simultaneously, preventing vendor lock-in and enhancing the value for consumers. It also enables, through its use of data analytics and smartphone Apps, the ability to understand, predict and proactively trigger responses to consumer behavior. The in-home ecosystem uses standards-compliant technologies, including the Thread Protocol and IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN).
“We are happy to see actual solutions in the consumer space that utilize the advantages and benefits that the IPv6 stack brings to the marketplace”, said Mr Linus Tan, VP, IPv6 Forum (Singapore). “This is a device that interoperates, and achieves fantastic power savings by its use of the standards”.
Currently, FetchIT can be directly and simply utilized by end-users to control thousands of devices and from vendors like Phillips Hue, Amazon Alexa, Fitbit and Google Nest. It also integrates with software services such as Yahoo! News, Google Calendar, Yelp, and eBay. FetchIT operates via middleware services, supporting, among others, IFTTT and Stringify. All this is available to the end-user with no additional programming or license fees.
“Additionally, DIY enthusiasts at home are creating smart ecosystems on their own, with the capacity to learn and build a system that works they wish it to, without being stuck if a device vendor goes out of business”, said Mr. Nehru Babu, of Tantiv4 India.
Tantiv4, headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA, is a member of leading IoT industry associations like the Thread Group, and is committed to produce inter-operable ecosystem devices and protocols.
