Kii and HOUZE collaboration aims to create zero-energy home

Kii has announced it is collaborating with HOUZE, a technology commercialisation company, to help integrate disruptive technologies into consumer and commercial real estate development and buildings.

Creating an affordable net-zero energy home specialising in the commercialisation of advanced building technologies is a pillar of the HOUZE mission that Kii is helping to fulfil.

“IoT is a disruptive force that will revolutionise the housing and building industry by redefining quality of life,” said David Goswick, CEO, HOUZE. “In order for us to capitalise on applying IoT to homes and buildings and to achieve our zero-energy vision, we chose Kii as our IoT platform partner provider to help us build upon the HOUZE Ecosystem.”

By using next-generation building systems, technologies and materials, the HOUZE zero-energy home aspires to meet the highest energy efficiency standards while creating a safer, stronger structure and touts a near-zero carbon footprint.

“Kii will help HOUZE to create IoT solutions and services for the real estate development and building industries, for both new development and retrofit,” said Masanari Arai, CEO, Kii. “Combining the innovative energy management from HOUZE and IoT platform solution from Kii, this will revolutionise the way all homes are built and retrofitted with advanced energy-saving technologies.”

HOUZE is establishing a network of ‘living labs’ across the globe that will illustrate the lifestyle benefits of IoT in both residential and commercial buildings. Kii will be the platform enabling smart automation and monitoring in these living labs, which will contain smart devices and solutions from a variety of device manufacturers that operate within the HOUZE IoT Ecosystem.
