UnaBiz, in collaboration with IMT-IPAL, Omate, and LITE-ON, introduces Family 4.0 Initiative at the Consumer Electronics Show, the world’s largest technology tradeshow, held this year in Las Vegas from 8 to 11 January 2019.

The first IoT dedicated network operator in Asia launched the "Family 4.0 Initiative” under ENGIE's Innovation booth at Eureka Park. Dedicating the entire week to "Family", UnaBiz announced 4 essential IoT Sigfox-Ready solutions to equip users with the latest and simplest technologies to ensure Health, Safety and Security of the most vulnerable members of their family - the young and the elderly.


UnaBiz and French-Singaporean lab IPAL Centre national de la recherche scientifique will showcase an Eldercare Smart Monitoring System that consists of lightweight, affordable sensors that can be easily deployed to track the living habits of elderly persons in their respective households. The system incorporates security and measures to alert caregivers to ensure the safety of these senior occupants without impeding on their privacy or independence.


Out of home, UnaBiz collaborates with Omate to launch an affordable and energy efficient smartwatch - the Omate O6S, to further reinforce the health and safety needs of seniors. The pedometer smartwatch boasts an impressive 30-day battery life and can be used to send SOS alerts in the event of emergencies via the UnaBiz network. This allows the wearers loved ones to locate them in real-time via a mobile app. Equipped with a magnetic charger, the Omate O6S is available in Q3 of 2019.


For the young ones, UnaBiz pairs up with LITE-ON to launch a Child Protection Device with an alarm function that allows young children to be located immediately in case of emergency, and a new Consumer GPS tracker the size of a credit card that can be easily inserted into any wallet.


“At UnaBiz, family always comes first. In this digital age, we want to pursue an inclusive society for both the young and the elderly, where the vulnerable do not get left behind. As an IoT operator, we believe our role is to empower IoT with the right purpose. Together with our ecosystem partners, we are trying to slowly, but surely, change the world, and the first step is to bring peace of mind to you and your loved ones." said Henri Bong, CEO and co-founder of UnaBiz.
