Qualcomm integrates Cognitive Systems’ Motion technology into its Mesh Networking Platform

Qualcomm integrates Cognitive Systems’ Motion technology into its Mesh Networking Platform
Chip maker Qualcomm has built a partnership with Cognitive Systems to enable advanced motion detection and home automation through a mesh network.

Under this cooperation, Cognitive Systems’ Aura Wi-Fi Motion technology will be offered as the standard option for developers creating products based on the Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform.

The Aura Wi-Fi Motion technology works by having multiple beacon sensors placed around the home. The beacons monitor motion by detecting ripples in wireless signals. Homeowners will be notified when unusual events are detected. In other words, users can use this technology to monitor their homes without installing security cameras.

In addition, the motion technology connects with smart home platforms like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT. The technology is already commercially available as part of the Aura smart home monitoring platform.

“The Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform delivers robust and consistent connectivity in every corner of the home. Our collaboration with Qualcomm gives us access to an ideal platform that provides whole home coverage, which combined with Aura WiFi motion, provides full home monitoring with no need for additional hardware,” said Taj Manku, CEO of Cognitive Systems.

For OEMs and broadband carriers, Qualcomm’s Mesh Networking Platform gives them the ability to incorporate smart home control into their products without the need for design changes or additional hardware.

The technology will be rolled out via Qualcomm’s platform during the first half of 2018.
