ROCKETHOME wins new partners viRaTec, wallbe and Get It Done for the connect program in smart gardening, electromobility and installation services

Cologne, 18. July 2018 – Introducing ROCKETHOME’s new partners for the multi-vendor Connect platform: viRaTec, a provider of smart garden and intelligent irrigation applications, wallbe, one of the leading providers of integrated charging infrastructure for e-mobility, and getitdone, an installation service provider. ROCKETHOME, the leading provider of IoT solutions, launched the Connect Partner Program in 2016 and since then, the company has won over notable manufacturers and service providers for its leading IoT Connect Platform in Europe.

As an important component of connected homes, the smart garden unlocks new potential
The seamless integration of viRaTec's intelligent irrigation systems provides users of ROCKETHOME’s solutions with new application possibilities for their connected homes. Roland Grösslich, CEO of viRaTec is looking forward to working together: “We share a common vision of how we can bring the trends of the smart home and Internet of Things (IoT) to the garden. This cooperation creates synergies that will benefit our joint customers in the future.”

Intelligent charging & energy management at home through the seamless integration of wallbe’s infrastructure
As part of ROCKETHOME’s Energy IoT solutions, wallbe’s wallboxes are linked to a PV system, Smart Meter and the individual customer building automation. The charging of the cars is automatically optimised by the system according to the energy production and self-consumption of the house. “We’re very pleased that with ROCKETHOME we have managed to win a motivated and innovative provider of smart home solutions as partner, who recognises the opportunities digitalisation has to offer,” said Dr. Dominik Freund of the cooperation with ROCKETHOME.
As the managing partner, Dr. Freund is convinced: The future is electric. This applies to both cars and modern buildings. “With our attractive complete package consisting of hardware, software and various solutions, many of our satisfied customers have almost all possibilities to meet their requirements.”

Get it done instead of do-it-yourself
GET IT DONE is an online platform that enables companies to round out their smart product offer with tailor-made services, such as assembly or installation, at a fixed price and thus boost customer satisfaction.
Even if many components in the connected home are “plug & play” products, there are a large number of users who do not wish to do the setup themselves and really value a high-quality service. Partners of ROCKETHOME who cannot or do not want to build up their own suitable personnel, can fall back on Get It Done’s 4,000 competent installation partners.
Sascha Kellert, CEO of Get it done Service GmbH, explains:
"Our goal is that together with companies, we provide the customer with the best buying and service experience. We plan and create shopping experiences that increase customer satisfaction and loyalty to the brand of our partners."

Interoperable and manufacturer independent Connect Platform as a success factor for IoT solutions of the future
As part of the certification process, ROCKETHOME guarantees interoperability with the overall system for its partners, which include manufacturers and other API providers. More than 100 devices and APIs from more than 40 manufacturers have already been integrated. The possible use cases, which currently extend from home and building automation, decentralized energy management and e-mobility to ambient assisted living, will grow as the number of interesting cooperative partnerships increases. After the successful integration in the platform the devices are offered to more than 50 B2B partners. Yüksel Sirmasac, Founder and CEO of ROCKETHOME confirms: "Strong partnerships are an important part of the success of our solutions in the marketplace, so we are delighted to have gained viRaTec and wallbe for our Energy-IoT and Smart Home platform. The areas of application are developing rapidly and the integration of leading brands has allowed our platform to grow at a rapid pace."

The company's products support the areas of energy management, intelligent home control and security. Together with its partners from the energy industry, telecommunications, commerce, hardware industry and other sectors, the company designs solutions and business models in dynamically growing market segments.
