Internet of Things Provider Uses Big Data Analytics
Vivint, the largest home automation company in North America, is leading the charge in the data-driven, connected home movement. Serving more than 800,000 homes, Vivint’s touchscreen panel, the hub through which all of their other products communicate, creates a streamlined network that connects all of the home’s smart systems including security, HVAC, lighting, small appliances, video, and other devices.
Intelligence is the center of the smart home and Vivint is using big data for the connected home and larger Internet of Things movement. By using Datameer, Vivint is able to shorten the time it takes to go from raw data to actionable intelligence and enhance their customer’s home experience.
Vivint was looking for a solution that could make their staff more efficient and seamlessly integrate with their Hadoop analytics platform rather than just retrofitted to work with Hadoop. Another key consideration was the ability to integrate and analyze not just row data but also streaming data, which is a key component to their smart home analytics solution to big data for Internet of Things.
Datameer is used to join and analyze terabytes worth of data collected from Vivint’s Internet of Things solution, including various in-home automation, security, and energy management devices (thermostats, smoke alarms, automatic locks and door and window sensors) to better understand usage patterns and improve services.
