Beltrade: Elica enters the world of IoT

Thanks to the partnership with Vodafone and IBM, Elica enters the world of IoT with Snap, the Air Quality Balancer. This product, equipped with three sensors and a sophisticated algorithm, is an innovative system that monitors and automatically improve the air quality. According to the partnership, Vodafone has contributed to the App implementation and provides the Data SIM card, allowing the device an alternative connection to Wi-Fi. IBM owns the cloud where all data collected are stored. Snap learns to know the home environment through continuous measurements made by its sensors. In this way, it is able to calibrate its mode of operation based on an “ideal situation”, specific for each environment. Snap has 5 operating modes that can be activated with an App (downloadable from the Apple and Google stores) or with a remote control: Automatic, Manual, Detox (focus on air quality), Dry (it reduces the possibility of mold growth and prevents the musty smell) and Link (the appliance dialogues with Elica’s Sense hoods). “Snap for us is not a point of arrival but of departure – said Francesco Casoli, President of Elica -. New technologies and digitalisation are part of our lives and our homes. With this project we want to open ourselves to the IoT era, bringing our know-how in air treatment for the benefit of the whole house”.

But also Everel has a substantial growth in the automotive sector as well. In the automotive business, Everel manufactures components such as switches to control the opening of the doors or passenger compartment switches. Everel Group has direct relations with Volkswagen and the Valeo Group, which then supply components to automakers such as Peugeot-Citroen, Renault, Opel, Toyota, Fiat, BMW, Ford, Mercedes-Benz. Today the automotive business is only a small of the company’s turnover. The growth prospects are now interesting, to the point that in 2015 the Group achieved ISO TS to serve as Tier 1, to directly supply major car manufacturers. Only a company with significant financial strength – along with other important skills, high standards of quality – can successfully enter this market, in which the development times can be very long: from opening the job to production many years can go by.
