The portfolio combines the open and secure Qivicon Smart Home platform with smart home gateways, apps, devices and services.

For example, the Qivicon Home Base smart home functionality can be integrated into existing gateways, and different pricing models can be defined. This provides smart home customers with freedom of choice – they can opt for a one-time payment or a monthly fee. The white label app also provides new opportunities for optimizing customer loyalty and retention.
