Zentri Labs enables companies to provide secure market-ready connected products to their customers at scale. The business unit provides domain specific connected products including hardware, embedded software, and cloud services in a fraction of the time it would take to develop products from scratch.
LOS GATOS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–November 18, 2015–
Zentri Labs’ customers benefit in the following ways:
- Offer market specific connected product by configuring a field proven product design in days
- Harness ZentriOS, the most powerful connected product operating system for resource constrained devices, to build highly efficient and robust connected products
- Leverage Zentri Device Management Service which enables reliable encrypted software updates, an enterprise app store for embedded product apps, and product geolocation.
Some of the successful products that Zentri Labs have deployed include in-store wireless location products for tracking consumer behavior, wireless audio control products, asset tracking products, and wireless products for commercial fitness equipment.
“OmniTrail Technologies, developers of the world’s most accurate and power efficient micro-location protocol, leverages Zentri Lab’s expertise to serve its enterprise customers. Zentri Labs has a unique and powerful model that helped us launch a connected product for our key customers without the inherent risks and delay of building a secure connectivity solution ourselves,” said Richard Fuller, Head of R&D, Omnitrail Technologies. “In addition to the product itself, we really valued the incredible support provided by the Zentri Labs team.”
Zentri Labs is led by Chief Innovation Officer, Mike Conrad, a serial entrepreneur and connected products expert. Conrad has founded three successful startups that revolutionized the connected products business and has launched a series of successful products to market. Conrad’s focus is on the drastic simplification of wireless connected product design and configuration which has been a major driver for the Zentri platform.
“The unique opportunity we have in IoT is being able to create a near market-ready product design in days. Companies can take years to do this if they don’t have a secure production-ready platform and years of accumulated knowledge of how connected products are built,” said Mike Conrad, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer, Zentri. “Our customers value the speed of productization and the fact that products are reliable out of the box.”
