May 15, 2015 /prREACH/ -- Blue Rocket, a leading custom mobile application development studio, announced today a strategic partnership with Ayla Networks, whose Agile Internet of Things (IoT) platform enables manufacturers to make secure connected products easily.
Blue Rocket and Ayla Networks will work together to accelerate manufacturers’ and OEMs’ time to market with connected versions of their products, including thermostats, appliances, lighting and other everyday products, that can be controlled using a mobile app. By using the Ayla Agile IoT platform, manufacturers can also use the data generated by the connected products to improve their current products, innovate on future IoT products and enhance their warranty, maintenance and other services.
"The Ayla IoT platform handles IoT device and cloud connectivity for ‘things’ of any kind, and we also provide 85% of what’s needed to create a personalized, manufacturer-specific mobile app to control the connected products," said David Friedman, CEO of Ayla Networks. “Blue Rocket has become a trusted partner by working closely early on with Ayla’s IoT platform SDK to assist OEMs with creating fully customized iOS and Android mobile apps to manage and control their products.”
“Ayla is a perfect partner for us because their IoT platform includes the right building blocks for both iOS and Android,” says Jess Taylor, CEO of Blue Rocket, Inc. “This allows the Blue Rocket team to focus on user experience and quickly bring to market mobile apps that will provide real value to users and manufacturers alike.”
