Next Generation of Aura home security system honored at CES

WATERLOO, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cognitive Systems Corp., creators of WiFi Motion, today announced the availability of the next generation of the Aura home monitoring system. Aura allows consumers a view into their home – without cameras. The system is simple to setup and uses advanced WiFi Motion technology to monitor the disruption of wireless signals caused by movement, and alerts homeowners to when and where motion occurs. This groundbreaking technology has been recognized by the CTA as a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree.

“The latest version of Aura provides even more insight into activity happening in the home, while maintaining the privacy of our customers,” said Taj Manku, CEO of Cognitive Systems.

WiFi Motion Technology

Unlike other sensors that use heat or light, Aura uses wireless signals – a more accurate and dependable way of detecting motion. The new Aura expandable Beacon-based system uses a combination of advanced algorithms and machine learning to distinguish between people, pets and mechanical motion (like a fan). With the use of three or more Beacons, mesh motion sensing is unlocked, allowing homeowners to be notified where and when motion occurs in their home. The engineering team at Cognitive is continuously optimizing and advancing WiFi Motion. These advances will be provided as software updates.
