Vivint Standardizes On A Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub For Securing Automation Of The Internet Of Things – Yahoo Finance

Without a central internal repository to gather and analyze the data generated from each sensor, Vivint was previously limited in its ability to innovate and to add higher intelligence to its security offerings. For example, knowing when a home is occupied or vacant is important to security — but when tied into the heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) system, you can add a layer of energy cost savings by cooling or heating a home based on occupancy. Similarly, by adding geo-location into the equation, you can begin to adjust temperature changes to a home based on the proximity to an owner’s arrival, for instance, when the owner has a connected vehicle. HVAC systems are the single largest contributor to a home’s energy bill and carbon emissions, accounting for more than 40 percent of residential energy consumption in the U.S. Studies have shown that consumers could see 20 to 30 percent energy savings by turning off HVAC systems when residents are away or sleeping.1 Vivint knew it wanted a partner with the broadest big data ecosystem, to ensure support as more and more devices are connected to the Internet each day. Having the assurance that Cloudera was open where it needed to be and that it worked with hundreds of companies was a key consideration in the company’s selection process. “Hadoop is capable of producing value quickly, and for us the ability to look across data and track inferences brings immediate value to our customers,” said Bunker.
