Allegion expands IoT footprint in Yonomi alliance

Dublin, Eire

Allegion, plc, a leading global security products and solutions provider, has made, through one of its subsidiaries, an equity investment in Yonomi – a leading mobile application and cloud platform provider for connected living.

Allegion Futurist and Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships Rob Martens called the investment a strategic alliance between two smart-home IoT thought leaders.

“As an IoT thought leader, Allegion drives connected device integration in both residential and non-residential security markets,” said Martens. “We form strategic alliances with others who embrace the IoT as we do, furthering our capabilities and pushing innovation in our industry. This new alliance with Yonomi is a perfect example. We’re impressed by the flexible IoT solutions Yonomi offers to manufacturers as well as end consumers and look forward to using this technology to give our customers smarter security experiences.”

Through the alliance, Allegion’s portfolio has elite access to Yonomi’s Thin Cloud Infrastructure and cloud computing expertise. Schlage® recently deployed Yonomi Thin Cloud to support millions of its smart locks.

Allegion will also further its integration into the smart-home market through the Yonomi consumer application that fosters seamless communication between smart-home devices. The mobile application allows users to set conditions and personalised routines that control multiple smart-home devices with simple voice command. The app currently integrates with more than 60 popular smart-home devices, including some Schlage locks.

“We’ve designed Yonomi to be both easy to use and powerful, much like Allegion’s IoT-enabled products,” said Yonomi CEO Kent Dickson. “As a company that’s focused on simplifying smart-home experiences, we’re excited to have a strategic partner like Allegion with expertise specific to the evolution of smart security devices – an important part of the connected home.”

The partnership is consistent with Allegion’s strategy to drive growth and create shareholder value by investing in new technologies.
