Clear2there Joins Z-Wave Alliance, Viewbiquity Cloud Application Suite Supports Z-Wave Technology

By Rory Lidstone

Clear2there LLC today joined the Z-Wave Alliance, an industry-leading organization which aims to promote the interoperation and adoption of wireless devices for smart home and other smart premise applications.

As such, the company's Viewbiquity Cloud Application Suite allows service providers to easily and cheaply offer advanced smart premise services that use Z-Wave compliant sensors and devices.

As a member of the Z-Wave Alliance, Clear2there joins other industry leaders — 2GIG Technologies, Sigma Designs, Aeon Labs, LG, Motorola and many more — in aiding the development and deployment of smart solutions that leverage Z-Wave technology.

“For service providers looking to deploy smart services to their customers, integrating the broad array of available devices is crucial to operational efficiency,” said Craig Steen, president and chief executive officer at Clear2there. “The VCAS solution employs a combination of CO- and Cloud-based elements to create an open and unparalleled operational environment that support Z-Wave, along with other wired and wireless standards.”

Clear2there is a developer of advanced video surveillance, smart home and smart business, communications and M2M solutions for service providers and enterprises.

The company’s smart home and smart business portfolio for service providers features a number of turnkey customer premise bundles, as well as cloud and on-premises application service platforms.

In October, Clear2there expanded its smart home and smart business solution deployments via the Viewbiquity platform with local service providers to 13 states with the 13th deployment being in Alaska.

At that time, trials and deployments were also underway with operators in Colorado, Kansas, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin.

In recent Z-Wave Alliance news, the Raspberry Pi, an inexpensive ARM-based mini-computer that has made waves in the development community, received an upgrade in the form of a plug-in module that adds Z-Wave support.

Unveiled at CES 2013, the Z-Wave hardware module enables developers to access the Z-Wave ecosystem of home control products.
