HELSINKI, Finland – May 26, 2015 – Bttn Inc., the creator of the simplest physical internet user interface in the world has chosen SIGFOX’s global network to dramatically expand the reach of its buttons.
Until now GPRS and Wi-Fi technologies have been used to connect bttn, the world’s first stand-alone, connected push button to the Internet. By qualifying its device in the SIGFOX Ready certification program, Bttn is assured the buttons will have optimal radio capacity wherever SIGFOX’s cost-effective, energy-efficient global network is operating.
“SIGFOX’s network, which is dedicated to the Internet of Things, allows us to build buttons that have better battery lifetime and a much lower cost,” said Harri Rautio, CEO of Bttn. “Furthermore, SIGFOX has strong network presence in countries like Spain and France, where we already have business customers in the transportation, elderly care, security and manufacturing industries. SIGFOX’s network connectivity adds a great feature to our great product.”
