CES, LAS VEGAS, NV - Tuesday, January 5th, 2016
Ooma, Inc. (NYSE: OOMA), a leading smart business and home communications platform, today announced that its Ooma Telo home phone service now integrates with even more connected devices and services including Apple Watch, Android Wear, Philips Hue, WeMo, LIFX light bulbs and Dropbox, in addition to Ooma’s current integrations with Nest and Amazon Echo.
“Ooma’s smart home phone service can be the centerpiece of your connected home, enhancing the services provided by our partners and creating new ways for you to interact with your home phone,” said Eric Stang, CEO of Ooma. “Our new integrations with popular products and apps leverage the award-winning Ooma communications platform to help make homes smarter than ever.”
These new integrations provide Ooma customers with the convenience and flexibility of using their Ooma Telo with their mobile devices and connected home devices. A sampling of possible uses include:
The new integrations complement Ooma’s Nest Alerts feature. Nest Alerts makes an Ooma customer’s home safer by alerting them on their mobile device whenever their Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide™ alarm detects the presence of smoke or fire, and enables the homeowner to call 911 from wherever they’re located using their home phone number and address. Originating a 911 call from your home phone number when you’re away from home means you’re connected to the correct local emergency services personnel for your home’s location, no matter how far away you may be, saving valuable time in an emergency.
Ooma Premier users can connect their Ooma Telo with these smart devices and more through the My Ooma web portal. Ooma enables the integrations through partnerships with Nest, Amazon, Dropbox and IFTTT, a free web-based service that allows consumers to creatively control their favorite products and apps to perform functions based on conditional statements.
