LEXI, the company behind the comprehensive IoT technologies that are transforming how both enterprises and consumers manage and automate their smart spaces, announced the LEXI IoT platform – a sizable step forward in easing the IoT experience for everyone connecting products, across apps, and across ecosystems.
LEXI’s suite of software and hardware provides complete functionality for enterprise customers to deploy a comprehensive smart home offering or commercial IoT project. Fully interoperable with IoT products/brands, the LEXI IoT platform is being deployed across market segments including smart building, smart city, smart home, smart agriculture, environmental monitoring, industrial control, logistics and HVAC.
Universal, multi-protocol, interoperable and intelligent.
What differentiates the LEXI IoT platform from everything else on the market is it’s far-reaching, future-ready design that supports all major wireless protocols including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, 900MHz, LoRaWANs and cellular – plus it’s upgradable to Thread and Matter. Intentionally universal, the LEXI IoT platform caters to all major smart home ecosystems including Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, IFTTT and soon Apple HomeKit, HomeAssistant and HomeBridge.
“This essentially is the missing piece to move IoT stakeholders and users into the next level of smart living as the future is multi-protocol and it’s all about interoperability,” says John E. Osborne II, COO, LEXI. “Manufacturers, telcos and retailers need a flexible, future-proof IoT platform to wrap their brand around, while their customers need the ‘it just works’ factor to finally kick in and spur the adoption and expansion of smart-everything.”
Already being rolled out to international telcos, the LEXI IoT platform is comprised of three core components:
- LEXI mobile apps: Customisable, white-label iOS and Android mobile apps to add, control and manage devices. Works both with and without the LEXI Universal IoT Gateway.
- Universal IoT Gateway: Includes support for ALL 5 major wireless protocols plus a NXP processor to run AI models at the edge.
- LEXI cloud: U.S.-based cloud includes an admin portal, customer service portal, roles-based access control (RBAC), remove device control, a Big Data backend, and rich reporting & analytics dashboards.
Additional differentiators include:
- Only IoT cloud platform built independently; delivers up to 90% cost savings over AWS IoT Core (utilised by competitive offerings)
- 40% faster in performance (compared to major cloud services)
- Forward compatibility with new wireless standards including Matter
- White-label options: App, cloud, software, smart devices, Tier 1 customer service, reporting & analytics, warehousing
- Platform-as-a-service: Reduced operating costs, effective scalability, provides platform maintenance and flexibility, ready for the future
- Multi-layered network security with the power to run AI models at the edge
- Four U.S. patents in the applications of machine learning (ML), computer vision, and artificial reality to IoT
- Flexible suite of recurring revenue services can be resold as monthly subscriptions
The LEXI IoT platform is interoperable with third-party devices as well as a wide variety of LEXI white-labeled smart devices for smart homes, buildings, and industries. Products fall under the categories of lighting and controls, sensors, security cameras, air quality monitors, water management, asset trackers and more.
“Companies can buy devices from overseas manufacturers, but they don’t have the resources to develop all the necessary software to competitively deploy, manage, report and support the IoT universe they’re offering to customers,” says Scott Cahill CEO, LEXI. “Our white-label, edge-to-cloud LEXI IoT Platform, which we have spent six years developing, brings relief to today’s often frustrating digital existence by providing not just smart, but intelligent connections to generate new revenue streams, attract new subscribers, and increase customer loyalty through a rewarding connected experience.”
