The home security market is saturated with services that perform adequately. Today’s solutions aren’t good enough because they don’t incorporate the necessary intelligence to make decisions for the occupants as a human would. They can’t because their software platforms are old, brittle and unable to add intelligent services to keep up with constantly evolving consumer expectations. People Power is different. We can expand the home security market because our systems are designed to understand the inherent uniqueness of people at home. We do this with our advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to respond with informed decisions. This is done by extracting data from a wireless in-home sensor network to predict trends and behavior patterns of occupants. That’s the magic that enables a new generation of intelligent home security solutions. Consumer brands can now deliver next-generation in-home services quickly, affordably, and with noteworthy differentiation to their customers for recurring revenues.
People Power’s advanced software combined with hardware by Develco Products work together to help people remain safe and secure at home 24/7 with the most comprehensive safety net of alerts and emergency response procedures. Service providers seeking new revenues are encouraged to contact us today.
There’s an urgent need for the next generation of energy conservation. But current solutions aren’t good enough. They can’t engage consumers on their terms, in ways that encourage participation.

Even with years of experience and billions of consumer interactions with our smart home solutions, we embarked on a mission to learn even more about how to serve people in need. In 2018, People Power was awarded a research grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA) focused on in-home supportive solutions for dementia caregivers. The collaborative research with University of California, Berkeley will produce critical information about how connected in-home services can best administer assistance and peace of mind to caregivers actively involved in providing care for a family member with dementia. Additionally, the findings will improve quality of life to help aging adults live more independently. State-of-the-art research methodologies are being implemented to assess emotional functioning in persons with dementia and their caregivers, and to evaluate the effects of People Power’s connected in-home services at the Berkeley Psychophysiology Laboratory, one of the world’s leading research laboratories for the study of human aging.
While the study is still underway, one thing is clear. It will provide critical insights and validation to help tomorrow’s aging adults, their families, and caregivers.
Everyone is a consumer. That’s why we all understand the never-ending desire for improvements to consumer services. What seems adequate today becomes antiquated tomorrow. Today’s services aren’t as good as they can be, because they’re too often built on development architecture that resembles shambolic scaffolding from a previous century. Brittle, unsteady, inflexible and potentially dangerous. We’re different. Our services are built on architecture that was envisioned from its inception to address human values – human needs, really. In fact, it’s the core enabler of People Power’s mission – to empower people in their everyday quest for safety and security, efficiency and comfort. Simply put, other companies are gravely limited by the architectural choices they made. We, on the other hand, are liberated by our architecture to address the never-ending needs of consumers. Frank Lloyd Wright, preeminent architect of the mid-twentieth century, confirms the vision by which our architecture was inspired.
A smart home service becomes part of the family when the architecture helps solve the truly important stuff.
1. Differentiated white-label consumer services.
People Power develops intelligent in-home consumer services for homecare, safety and security, and energy management for brands interested in recurring revenues. Integrating consumer research for positive outcomes and industry-best user experiences, our services are built to help people easily manage the growing complexities of their lives. We build white-label solutions for our business partners, helping them rapidly approach new markets and revenue opportunities with differentiated consumer offerings. These services are the pinnacle of why we do what we do. People Power is proud to provide consumer solutions for some of the world’s largest brands to positively affect the lives of people.
2. Modular functionality for optimal performance.
Our leadership in AI-based smart home technology is well known and undeniable. People Power’s services are configured with a collection of AI microservices that deliver modular functionality for stunning smart home performance. By learning key activities and patterns in the home, microservices understand how to best serve people. Each designed to perform a specific machine learning function with extraordinary capability, they work with other microservices to form higher-level decisions. Together, they form comprehensive consumer services that command larger monthly subscription fees. Enabled uniquely by the People Power Bot Server, microservices are both a software design philosophy and a breakthrough financial model to enable revenue-building differentiation.
3. Creating the perfectly behaved smart home.
Are you home or away? Are you asleep, or on vacation? Your smart home needs to know. Central to every smart home subscription service is the ability to recognize these critical occupancy conditions. Enabling solutions vastly superior to today’s location-based services in smartphones that provide non-contextualized data, People Power’s activity detection technology is different. It’s based on machine learning algorithms from in-home sensors that understand and react to resident occupancy patterns. Users can now be better served in a variety of new and compelling ways. No surprise here, People Power is the only company developing activity detection technologies to deliver industry-best smart home solutions.
4. Bot configuration and control made super easy.
We all see it. Smart home devices are rapidly gaining popularity. But they won’t become more intelligent with the conventional apps that drive them today. To do that, we next depend on the creation of machine learning services that use time-series data to take simple control and personalization to the next level. People Power has spent the last 7 years preparing for this moment with our patent-pending Bot Server to help developers build intelligence on top of any internet-connected device with capabilities the original manufacturer could never have envisioned. Leading the industry, People Power’s solution enables our white-label customers to rapidly deliver AI-based consumer services addressing high value market opportunities.
5. Collaborating with key people, easily.
With our solutions, every home can be part of a community of friends, family and neighbors‚ but without the noise and conflict often associated with today’s social media experiences. Research proves that perfectly tuned social connections will positively affect the health and happiness of people. People Power’s partnerships with leading social science research laboratories at UC Berkeley and Stanford University provide us critical data about how best to connect people for enriched experiences. Add these learnings to our expertise in developing smart home services for homecare, safety and security, and energy efficiency, and we hold the ingredients for the next viral solution which in recent history has always depended on the ability to unite people through social connectedness.
6. Simple, intuitive smart home setup and control.
It must be simple. Achieving commercial scale depends on solutions that users can easily setup and control. Not only has People Power focused on creating the most elegant out-of-box experiences that both DIY and professional installers love, but we’ve learned that people want to interact with their homes through a variety of ways in addition to a mobile app. With a team of trainable AI-based personal assistants and conversational UI technology integration, our solutions make users feel comfortable and ready to enjoy their newly equipped intelligent home. Our understanding of user perceptions, knowing what they need and value, along with their abilities and limitations helps us build experiences that keep them happily coming back for more.
7. It’s a requirement, not a feature.
For the smart home to become truly intelligent, user data collection and analysis of activities is a necessity. There’s no way around it. That doesn’t mean a privacy tradeoff should exist. To the contrary, smart home data demands more robust protection than ever before. Fully aware of consumer expectations for privacy and security, we have long considered this a basic tenant of serving people around the world. With GDPR and HIPAA compliance, People Power’s services are designed for strength greater than banking websites. Our system protects against modern and evolving threats of botnet attacks. Our commitment to privacy and security is designed to make our white-label solutions stronger than any other service development architecture available today.
8. Edge gateways make ultra-modern services possible.
For extreme reliability and low latency of in-home connected services, People Power has developed the first edge computing smart home gateway able to migrate intelligent services from the cloud to the home. This becomes essential for AI-based microservices to operate when the internet goes down, delivering service reliability in the face of uncertain connectivity. Our embedded software SDKs enable gateways and devices to connect easily to our cloud. With future proofing in mind, our gateways use a number of protocols including Zigbee, Z-Wave, cellular, Wi-Fi and BLE for flexible connectivity to a wide range of devices. People Power’s patent-pending edge computing technology delivers a significant competitive advantage when compared to other smart home solutions.
9. Devices tuned for intelligent consumer services.
Intelligent smart home services begin with great sensors and devices, critical in helping generate high-quality data to facilitate perfectly designed services. Future proofing those services begins with open connectivity to support a variety of devices through different protocols to swiftly meet market demand. We connect the industry’s best sensors and devices to generate the highest quality data for the most powerful AI-based services in the smart home industry. These result in bulletproof smart home services that predict user needs, support diverse lifestyles, and are depended on daily in the private homes of people around the world.
10. Our service development architecture does everything right.
It provides all the capabilities for developing, deploying and managing advanced consumer services. To quickly connect devices, we have the fastest way for unified connectivity to the cloud with an open source SDK, APIs and a developer console. To delight consumers, we have an iOS, Android and web app framework for great experiences. For intelligent services, we are able to deploy AI-based microservices to the smart home. For service delivery, our scalable cloud enables social connectedness, e-commerce and a rules engine for use in any data center. For commercial service management, our Maestro command center helps program managers keep subscribers happy and coming back for more. Our architecture does everything right.

Our architecture is hardened end-to-end with industry standard security, wrapped inside HIPAA-compliance with administrative processes and training to open new healthcare channels for our service provider partners.
There’s a need to make sense of the swirling buzzwords around the term artificial intelligence, or AI. Surprisingly, just two short years ago the term was synonymous with job-killing zombie takeovers, or worse. Since then, cooler heads have prevailed. And cooler end-user solutions are beginning to make their way into market. Much less important is how we refer to the expanding vocabulary surrounding the term, than what remarkable outcomes result from the intelligence.
We, as leaders in AI for the smart home, look at technology as a tool to solve problems for people. People with real challenges care only about being safe and secure, efficient and comfortable. For instance, there's nothing artificial about a senior loved one who’s fallen and can’t reach their antiquated emergency response button. That’s a real emergency where real intelligence should come to the rescue. Because every room in a home can be a location for wellness or disaster – often changing in the blink of an eye – intelligence is needed to solve the constantly evolving puzzle of occupant wellness. Our AI technology can solve multiple puzzles in the home simultaneously, rapidly, benefiting the health and wellness of people around the clock. That’s the essence of our system’s genius. Can we tell you more? Contact us today.
There’s a clamoring need for the next generation of smart home services. It’s painfully obvious that today’s market-leading solutions fall short from the definition of ‘smart’. We fix this with a truly intelligent safety net of capabilities in our services that help conquer the challenges of living in a complicated and sometimes dangerous world. So intelligent is our system, that it responds with informed decisions as humans would. This is done by extracting data from an advanced wireless in-home sensor network to predict trends and behavior patterns of occupants. The center of the hardware solution is an advanced internet gateway from Develco Products, a technology leader based in Aarhus, Denmark. Their dual-SIM gateway is built upon a modular architecture for connecting devices and transferring data reliably and securely to the People Power cloud, where intense AI calculations are made to keep track of events in the home to assure peace of mind. People Power’s unique architecture is centered around AI-powered bots running in the cloud which can be downloaded onto the gateway for added performance, reliability and security.
