”Real-life” social-network supports ZigBee Home-Automation

Hong Kong, London, Miami, January 22, 2008

myrimis/ nanonavi, the most comprehensive-location-based-social network offered today on personal computers and mobile phones supports with immediate availability the ZigBee global-standard for Home-Automation (HA).

The myrimis platform allows the user to set up their own "Real-life" location-based social network including family members, friends, pets and assets like cars, boats and home, and create innovative services like virtual-caring for persons, pets, cars and home.

HA provides standard interfaces for the control of lightning, HVAC, power outlets, motorization, security, audio/video and other devices.

By automating and centralizing control of all these individual systems from virtually everywhere, HA increases comfort and security, and most importantly, becomes more efficient at reducing our need of energy.

"The growing global focus on improving energy efficiency can play a key role in introducing consumers to the value of home automation solutions," said CEO August Bodo Schnabel. "ZigBee is ideal because it is a standards-based technology with worldwide approval."
