By Chrissie Cluney September 06, 2019

Ayla Networks and King I Electronics have partnered together for the networks’ smart thermostat family of products.

King I Electronics Company is a provider of climate-control solutions for room, multi-family, small business, hospitality, government, commercial buildings, retail and industrial applications in automation and energy control. The King I thermostats are powered by Ayla IoT cloud technology. This enables temperature changes, HVAC system monitoring and maintenance, vacation mode setting and programming through King I's iT-Ctrl app. As a result, users can reduce energy costs and gain an improved customer experience, the company said.

“In the Internet of Things market, no single company can fully master all the knowledge and technology needed for successful connected-product development,” said David Wan, GM, King I Electronic Company. “Therefore, future competitiveness will be determined not by an organization’s ability to succeed alone, rather by its ability to partner effectively and seek cooperation with other companies. Working with Ayla Networks helps us stay ahead in this increasingly tough competitive environment and expand our share in the global market. Leveraging the benefits of Ayla Network's technology, King I's smart thermostats with wireless remote sensing applications bring users unparalleled benefits and performance.”

King I selected Ayla Networks’ cloud platform services on the basis of the networks’ worldwide presence and reliable, secure and easy IoT connectivity. In addition to the ease of service integration, Ayla Networks is capable of supporting millions of simultaneous device connections. This easily allows King I to configure its devices for machine-to-machine communication. The Ayla Networks’ platform provides all the required managed integrations. This includes over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates, device management and cloud connections.

“King I is among the world’s leading climate-control technology companies, and we are excited about the potential of our partnership to transform the comfort and energy management space,” said Jonathan Cobb, CEO, Ayla Networks. “This announcement is yet another strong validation of Ayla’s flexible IoT platform and our ability to deliver meaningful business outcomes for consumer and commercial OEMs.”
