Cognitive Systems Corp. has developed WiFi Motion, software that turns all your connected devices into motion sensors without installing any additional hardware. The software runs on WiFi 5 and WiFi 6 Internet routers to provide whole-home awareness of movement by sensing and deciphering small changes in WiFi signals travelling through the air.
“WiFi Motion is being offered as an optional service by more and more Internet Service Providers (ISPs),” said Bob El-Hawary, executive vice president of worldwide sales at Cognitive Systems. “Since January 2020, 120+ ISPs have installed WiFi Motion in approximately one million homes. The initial focus has been on home security applications.”
Currently, Cognitive Systems is refining its core WiFi sensing technology, and supporting partners on applications such as:
- Home security – WiFi Motion provides alerts about unusual movements of residents and possible intruders to homeowner applications.
- Smart home – WiFi Motion provides data about the presence of residents to help home automation software determine if lighting, blinds and temperature should be changed.
- Wellness monitoring – WiFi Motion provides data about residents’ movement patterns to determine if support is required.
