Partnering for a safer home: Smart home market leader eQ-3 and Smartfrog announce collaboration
Smartfrog’s home security solution is now integrated within eQ-3’s Homematic IP
Smartfrog, a leading European technology company focused on the Internet of Things (IoT), and eQ-3, the market leader covering over 35% of all installed Whole Home Systems in Europe, have announced a joint cooperation at the IFA 2018. Now, Smartfrog's complete security solution can be used directly within Homematic IP's cloud solution. "We are constantly looking to add value for our users. Thanks to this cooperation with Smartfrog a high-quality surveillance camera is now available that offers scores very highly in customer-friendly and commercial conditions. Security through cameras is the logical extension of our solution" said Bernd Grohmann, chairman of eQ-3.
With eQ-3’s Homematic IP app, users have a wide range of smart home devices and sensors available at their disposal - all operated from within a single smartphone app. The partnership with Smartfrog means this product range now extends to include a surveillance camera. "At Smartfrog we believe that interoperability between different technologies is necessary to make IoT solutions scalable and attractive for a wide range of users," said Charles Fraenkl, CEO at Smartfrog.
Smartfrog has developed a universal IoT platform designed to build dedicated solutions across product areas and international markets - initially within the field of security. Being present at home 24/7 is now no problem with Smartfrog’s complete security solution which offers continual surveillance via smartphone, tablet or notebook. Smartfrog’s security solution consists of an app, HD IP camera, and 24-hour video cloud storage. Quickly and easily installed, the user can observe, listen and even speak into their own four walls from anywhere in the world, at any time. The complete solution is available for just €5.95/month (cancellable monthly, no minimum contract term.)
Smartfrog attaches particular importance to data security. The company uses the highest security standards - similar to those used in online banking - and video data is transmitted securely using SSL encryption to TÜV- and ISO-certified high-security data storage centers. The independent security institute AV-TEST awarded the Smartfrog video surveillance solution its top-grade of "secure" and gave it three out of a possible three security stars.
