TeamViewer enters the Internet of Things (IoT) with HARMAN and offers a dedicated IoT solution for companies with smart buildings and devices around the world
Göppingen – TeamViewer, the global pioneer of remote control and online collaboration software, today announced its cooperation with HARMAN (NYSE: HAR), the premier connected technologies company for the automotive, consumer and enterprise markets. Together, the two companies will provide a dedicated IoT solution for monitoring and managing smart buildings and devices by combining HARMAN’s Smart Building management system and IoT Gateway with TeamViewer’s leading remote monitoring control solutions.
HARMAN customers with smart buildings use the HARMAN IoT gateway to gather the status of building devices through more than 500 different sensor types. By combining HARMAN’s Smart Building management system and TeamViewer’s remote control offering, operations managers and service technicians can continuously monitor the HARMAN IoT Gateway. The operational status of the gateway will be displayed in HARMAN’s Smart Building dashboard, with additional detail available on TeamViewer’s own extensive monitoring dashboard. The solution will display critical information collected from a variety of sensors as well as monitor the sensors and gateways. Service technicians and operations managers will be able to receive notifications on the sensors, including common problems such as connectivity or battery power issues, as well as the possibility to access the gateway to run updates or troubleshoot remotely. Access will be enabled through a web interface on the gateway.
“We are pleased to expand TeamViewer’s partnership portfolio in the IoT area through our cooperation with HARMAN”, says Raffi M. Kassarjian, general manager IoT and Monitis at TeamViewer. “The Internet of Things connects millions of devices and sensors - and all of them need monitoring during operation. TeamViewer is the perfect match for the task, and we are proud to offer our support.”
According to Sandip Ranjhan, SVP, HARMAN Mobile and Communications Division, “We are looking forward to a great partnership with TeamViewer, which is another example of HARMAN continuing to build out the IoT ecosystem. The combination of HARMAN’s IoT offerings and TeamViewer’s remote monitoring and control solution, allows enterprises to seamlessly manage the operational aspects of IoT networks including our IoT Gateways and sensors, with the same convenience as that of enterprise IT systems ”
