Solo Technology Holdings, Rem-Fit Win ECRM Buyers Choice Awards  3/22/2018

Smart home devices are one of the fastest-growing categories in consumer technology, so it's no surprise that the winners of the ECRM/Levin Consulting Buyers Choice Awards at ECRM's Consumer Technology EPPS -- held recently in Chicago -- were both smart home product companies.

Solo Technology Holdings, LLC won the first place award for its iKey Pro Smart Safes, and Rem-Fit was a finalist for its ZEEQ Smart Pillow. Both were selected from among dozens of suppliers who had their products on display during the session's Innovation Hour, as retailers mingled with suppliers during cocktails and cast their votes on their favorite consumer technology products.

Purchase, N.Y.-based Solo Technology Holdings is an 'Internet of Things' company that leverages a modern event driven AWS infrastructure to deliver innovative and easy-to-use solutions for both personal use and commercial applications. It introduced a line of Smart Safe storage devices, the iKeyp, to protect everything in real-time from valuables and documents to medications and personal items. As a smart home device, the iKeyp smart safes employ multiple, active security measures that deliver real-time alerts, allowing users to monitor the safe remotely.

The company's iKeyp Pro is equipped with a patented expandable wing system, which can be installed in a kitchen cabinet, medicine cabinet, bookshelf or drawer in seconds and does not require the use of tools or leave behind any damage. The new iKeyp Bolt can be mounted with screws directly to a wall, stud or inside a cabinet. Both models feature the same proprietary IoT technology and can be opened using the built-in digital keypad, a smartphone, backup key, or remotely by customer service if needed.

REM-Fit is an active lifestyle bedding and technology brand focused on driving the development of sleep technology introduced in 2014. With offerings that include activity and sleep trackers, recovery-enhancing mattresses, high quality bedding and the ZEEQ smart pillow, REM-Fit provides full sleep systems designed to improve rest and recovery.

Designed to improve your sleep by combining multiple inputs, data tracking and responsiveness, the ZEEQ Smart Pillow is equipped with an array of 3D motion gyroscopes and sound sensors. It's developed to provide precision sleep data, while Bluetooth connectivity and 8 built-in speakers provide crisp, clear audio from any smart device. In addition, ZEEQ detects snoring, and responds by issuing a gentle vibration that urges the sleeper to change positions to reduce air path congestion, according to the company.

The ZEEQ connects to both Amazon Alexa and other smart devices through IFTTT, which enables it -- upon the user's waking or sleeping -- to trigger multiple actions throughout the house. By clicking the Stop Sleep button on the app, for example, a connected smart coffee maker can be started, or by clicking the Start Sleep button users can turn down connected lights or lock smart door locks.
