Instant Access to Real-Time Video Feeds and Cloud Storage for Home and Commercial Security Systems

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - Kii, the leading Internet of Things (IoT) cloud platform provider, today announced it has teamed up with ThroughTek, a leading IoT and M2M (Machine to Machine) total solution provider, to develop a next-generation IoT Cloud Platform that will lead to the creation of sophisticated, smart security cameras and applications. This collaboration empowers home and commercial security systems to record motion-triggered video directly to the cloud or personal storage devices. Kii cloud will leverage ThroughTek's cloud platform, Kalay, to expand its IoT ecosystem and world coverage to provide enterprise and consumers with a comprehensive security solution.

Kii and ThroughTek's collaboration will deliver leading surveillance, video streaming, and cloud storage for retail, agricultural, construction, medical, and telecommunications applications. With the integration of IP cameras into the IoT Cloud Platform, video feed access is available in real-time via any Internet-connected device. The combination will facilitate a rapid on-boarding of new consumer and commercial IoT solutions for both Kii and ThroughTek's current and potential customers, beginning Fall 2015.

"The Kalay platform is an IoT solution provider in Taiwan offering a variety of cloud applications, one of them being advanced VSaaS (Video Surveillance as a Service) to enable IP cameras for live video streaming, monitoring and recording. Through our partnership, it immediately gives Kii stronger influence in this very exciting IoT category," said Masanari Arai, CEO of Kii. "We're excited to team up with a like-minded, innovative company who will help drive our latest initiatives to continue the explosive growth of the IoT."

Through the partnership, video and music applications integrated to the IoT Cloud Platform will enable over-the-top content (OTT) to deliver a wide variety of third-party multimedia directly to end-user devices, while also creating additional revenue opportunities. Users can access and stream videos and music on demand in real time, providing complete management of personal content anytime, anywhere.

"We partnered with Kii because of their well-renowned reputation of scaling customers globally and their deep knowledge of IoT devices and connected systems," said Patrick Kuo, President and CEO of ThroughTek. "The partnership with Kii represents the latest step in ThroughTek's ongoing mission to expand its IoT ecosystem of service and content providers."

The collaboration will also empower device manufacturers and mobile carriers with easy and cost-effective deployment solutions to generate full-fledged scalable IoT solutions, which will enhance user experience at all levels.
