This year's CES has definitely confirmed the strength of the "Internet of Things" trend, says for ICTbusiness Sebastian Popović, the founder of Zipato. Zipato is the company employing thirty employees that's in the business of home management devices from the Smart Home category.

"Most of the exhibitors presented the possibility of connecting their products to the Internet, in order to enable control via mobile applications, and connecting with similar products or systems. We are very pleased because of this as Zipato is one of the "Internet of Things" systems that allow you to connect different devices to the Internet, and to control and automate them. That is why this year's Connected Home zone was significantly bigger than last year", said Popović.

According to him, Zipato is already a recognized name in the Connected Home zone, and the attendance at the stand was very high despite the large number of new exhibitors in this zone. Therefore, we are pleased with the contacts we have made, and we hope to make new deals during 2017, says Popović, adding that they plan to develop their platform and expect that it could be interesting to large producers as well who can build their ecosystem on it.

Let us recall, Zipato was awarded the CES 2017 Innovation Awards for the new version of their solution ZipaTile for the smart home control. The products included in this award are evaluated by the expert jury that awards the design and technical aspects of technology solutions for end-users in 28 product categories in total.

ZipaTile is the smart home control panel installed on the 8-inch tablet that is run by Android OS with a large number of different sensors. Users can easily install it on the wall in any room of the home, and thanks to the numerous software solutions, it will easily replace the usual security system, thermostat, intercom and home automation controller in one device.
