The company's KNOCK service is intended to help consumers by providing a unified dashboard to manage and support multiple IoT devices and services with user-based profiles, management and sharing for all family members in the household. It's designed to address the growing problem of multiple and incompatible apps that come with each new device or service consumers introduce into their homes and digital lifestyles. It applies user-based profiles that allow access sharing and control privileges to family members as desired. The WORKS WITH KNOCK branding, also new, is intended to let consumers know that devices and services bearing that mark will be guaranteed to be compatible with the KNOCK platform.
"We believe that consumers are having a love/hate relationship with the digital life experience," said Sumit Parab, head of product at the KNOCK division of UXP systems. "On the one hand, they are able to do amazing things they couldn't do before and enhance their lives both at home and away, while at the same time, they have the growing challenge of managing numerous applications, user interfaces, compatibility and control issues. Plus, the problem grows exponentially when you think of the whole family."
KNOCK is available at http://www.myknock.com or can be downloaded on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
The company is also demonstrating its MINT Digital Experience Engine, which is intended to enable an identity driven service architecture. It's designed to manage each user's lifecycle and provide access to core, cloud and OTT services via digital IDs for every user.
