Motorola Mobility to acquire software, services platform firm 4Home

Develop new services for consumers that utilise the growing number of connected devices in the home

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola Mobility, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Motorola, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire 4Home, a developer software and services platform that bridges the gap between the consumer and the devices that deliver services and information in today’s connected home.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

4Home provides connected home services through its carrier-grade software platform, ControlPoint, which include energy management, home security and monitoring, media management and home health.

The company said that ControlPoint is based on a customisable design, using open standards that allow partners to develop new services for consumers that utilise the growing number of connected devices in the home.

Motorola Mobility president Dan Moloney said they continue to invest in their converged experiences portfolio, and 4Home provides a wealth of services and software applications that offer consumers control and information for their digital lives.
