Fremont, May 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mivatek Smart Connect (formerly “Mivatek”) announces today the signing of a partnership agreement with Asia Pacific Telecom (APT), whereby APT will use Mivatek Smart Connect’s plug-n-play Smart Home solutions and service.  Mivatek’s mobile-cloud Video-IoT platform and smart devices will form the foundation of APT's Home Guardian program - a leading DIY MIY Smart Home & Business service available to 1.9 million APT's customers.

The new APT Home Guardian program is the company’s first offering in the smart home arena.  Home Guardian provides APT customers with a turnkey video-integrated interactive security, safety, and wellness service solution.  Each system package gives users advanced “one-touch-to-responder” features that allow them to make video-integrated protection and control with family, wherever they are.  The collaborative protection design allows the user, their family members, caregivers, and even neighbors to protect their homes and achieve peace of mind. 

There are three in-a-box starter packages available to APT customers.  The entry-level package allows the user to create a basic Home Security system comprised of a Mivatek Cube Camera, two Door and Window Sensors, and a Hub for system control.  All Home Guardian systems can be easily expanded with additional Mivatek devices to cover security, safety and/or care capabilities; the zero-pairing technology allows the expansion of accessories in seconds.

Ultimately, these packages cover the areas that APT believe will bring their customers the most peace of mind: home security and safety; care of elderly to allow them to independently and safely in their own homes as long as possible (the “aging in place” trend); and the care and safety of infants and pets.

The creation of Home Guardian evolved as a result of APT’s desire to bring additional value and service to its cellular subscriber base, currently at 1.9 million and growing.

“We looked at a number of value-added solutions to make our wireless products and services more attractive,” said Oscar Kuo, APT Senior Project Deputy Manager.  “The zero-pairing technology and the comprehensive capabilities of the Mivatek Smart Connect platform and associated devices, spanning from security, safety, care, and video, really impressed us.” 

Joe Liu, CEO of Mivatek Smart Connect, emphasized that this new project dovetails well with the company’s new focus on service providers, brand owners, and telco’s.

“We are excited about serving global service providers and brand owners with our turnkey Smart-Connect-as-a-Service,” said Liu, emphasizing the company’s commitment to a private label and OEM business strategy.  “We are also thrilled that a leading telecom and cellular service provider like APT chose Mivatek's Smart Connect platform.  We made video-integrated Smart Connect easy, reliable and cost-effective, and we’re confident that APT and its customers will appreciate these advantages.”

Additional capabilities of the new Home Guardian system include:

  • Multi-point installation: Use a single account to simultaneously manage devices in different locations and monitor multiple locations at the same time.
  • Collaborative protection: Five family members can be authorized to receive instant video push notifications and five emergency contacts.
  • Service in tandem: Strengthen the home security/care function, connect hospitals, care centers & security operators in series, providing users with more comprehensive services.
  • Privacy encryption: Multiple patented firewalls and anti-intrusion technologies protect the user’s image privacy and account information.
