digitalSTROM, based in Zurich, is the easy, intelligent way to make your home smart—by connecting, via existing wiring, all electrical household devices to apps in the cloud.
Says CEO Martin Vesper, “Our goal was to provide an infrastructure where cloud-based services, like weather and security, can be used very easily and reliably to make people’s homes smart and reactive to events, but without a large cost. To do this, we needed tremendous computing power; very high performance because latency is a big issue in the home; and an open, very secure platform.”
digitalSTROM needed an inter-operable platform that would integrate multiple technologies in the Internet of Things and easily provide new functionality. It was imperative that the platform be able to differentiate priorities between events, like a fire alarm versus a motion detector. Fast automation for responding to a homeowner’s use of their smartphone home-control app was another requirement.
The company searched for a high performance, scalable, and highly reliable platform and selected TIBCO® Cloud, a set of scalable solutions including TIBCO integration and event processing, that deliver high-performance capabilities on-demand. They are also making smart use of TIBCO API Exchange to manage their growing partner network.
