Jasco Products | January 31, 2023
On January 30, 2023, Jasco has exclusively contracted with Stanley Martine Homes, one of the prominent homebuilders in the United States, to offer JascoPro Series smart lighting systems.
Homeowners on the East Coast will accommodate new builds with Z-Wave technologies through Stanley Martin’s Digital-Ready Homes program, and JascoPro Series lighting systems will be part of this program. Z-Wave technologies will offer homeowners voice control through the Alarm.com interface of Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
The National Association of Realtors’ Home Buyers and Sellers Survey 2021 has reported that around 20% of buyers purchased a home with energy or green efficiency and smart home features over a new one. So JascoPro series will provide convenient and total control over smart lighting systems in their new home.
National Director of Sales for Jasco, Joshua Roberson, said “Jasco is one of the earliest adopters of the Z-Wave protocol. Our proven track record of reliability and scalability is the reason our technology will appear in brand-new Stanley Martin Digital-Ready Homes. He added, “Stanley Martin is setting itself apart from the crowd through its differentiated smart home program. Customers expect app driven technology solutions for their new home. We are proud to be a selected partner delivering the quality home buyers expect.”

KORE | February 28, 2023
KORE, a leading company in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and global IoT Connectivity-as-a-Service (IoT CaaS), recently announced that it will introduce and demonstrate its new technology software MODGo at Mobile World Congress Barcelona. This innovative solution offers a systematic approach to managed services designed to assist companies in overcoming the challenges of IoT implementation and management.
MODGo, a SaaS-based platform, makes it simple to Manage, Order, and Deploy IoT on the Go, providing businesses with a single solution to streamline the entire procedure. With MODGo, companies gain greater control over their IoT ecosystem, which involves device deployment, hardware configuration, network connectivity, inventory and order management, lifecycle management, device monitoring, and reverse logistics.
For example, a company selling devices for usage-based auto insurance must first manage the logistics of distributing the devices to the appropriate customers before resolving the complexities of IoT, such as configuring the devices with the selected network connectivity and data plan.
Moreover, once a client receives the devices, they must evaluate whether or not the devices are operating correctly, transmitting data, and reporting accurately. The company is also responsible if the customer requires additional or replacement devices or wishes to return their old devices for repurposing or disposal. The solution is designed to simplify, visualize and handle all aspects of IoT deployment, from order to device monitoring.
IMS, a leading provider of vehicle driving data and connected insurance solutions and a KORE customer, collaborated with KORE to develop MODGo. KORE will demonstrate MODGo at MWC Barcelona from February 27 to March 2, 2023. It will provide a free demonstration and additional information on how MODGo and the full KORE portfolio are designed to simplify IoT.
