Background

HVAC manufacturers want to bring new cloud connected equipment to market at a faster pace, but face challenges. It takes time to build the infrastructure for device connectivity, management, and security using in-house services. The creation of an intuitive consumer design is an iterative process. Consumers desire many interactive features, such as voice enablement. Ayla addresses these challenges, using a set of pre-built services, dashboards, and mobile applications that appliance makers can buy as a solution and launch their cloud connected appliances faster to market.
