Chief Executive Officer
From vision to reality: Universal Devices, Inc. was the first company to bring affordable, standalone, and web based home automation to the market. When I joined in 2007, the vision was just a set of slides and disparate codes in different computers. By the end of 2007, ISY-26 was an actual web-based, autonomous/standalone, and retail home automation product sold by SmartHome for $199.00.
Since then, Universal Devices has become the premier energy management and automation platform/framework sold through retail outlets (such as Best Buy) in North and parts of South/Central America. In addition, we have had numerous utility-related pilots.
