A9 (CEO Park Yong-yeon) participated in the world's largest technology exhibition CES 2020 opening in Las Vegas on Jan. 7-10 and displayed its NB-IoT one-person household and lonely death management in CES startup zone Eureka Park MIK INNOVATION HOT SPOT with the support from Sungshin University Startup Support Group.
A Nine's Bplug provides LTE Care Plug
service by B2G. As a welfare service to manage the lonely deaths and safety of
increasing one-person households and socially vulnerable households, sales and
transactions are being made to public institutions, autonomous districts, and
When the LTE Care Plug is installed in the
welfare-vulnerable household, it monitors the activities of the vulnerable
household every day. It manages safety by analyzing the power consumption of
home appliances and changes in illuminance of households in real time. If a
certain amount of power consumption and home lighting use does not occur for a
certain period of time, a "danger" alarm sets off on the management page and
smartphone, and the manager in charge checks the safety by phone or visit to
prevent lonely deaths.
The service is provided with integrated
control screen, operation screen, and smartphone web monitoring screen that can
be checked anywhere in case of risks.
The LTE Care Plug adopts a new method of LTE
communication called NB-IoT, so that data can be transmitted by connecting to
electricity from anywhere, regardless of the Internet.
The low cost of introduction and the small
size mean that the manager in charge of managing the vulnerable households can
carry it directly and install it easily when visiting the vulnerable household.
Since the installation location is invisible to the eye, it is viewed
positively that the privacy infringement factor is low.
The official from A9 said, "A Nine is looking
for a company that has built a B2G service sales network that provides welfare
services such as one-person households and senior care services. In terms of
long-term B2C services, it is also looking for smart homes and security
companies that have servers and platforms."
