Posted on 02 Nov, 2018

Abingdon-based Canary Care, a developer and marketer of wireless sensor-based smart home monitoring systems, has been acquired by Lifecycle Software Ltd, a specialist software company with more than 20 years’ experience in delivering industry leading subscriber billing, provisioning and Customer Relationship Management solutions and reporting tools to telecommunications, high street retailers and utility companies.

Stuart Butterfield, managing and technical director of Canary Care is confident about the future of the company. He says “This is a really positive development for our company. We will continue to provide the Canary Care product and service that our existing customers know and love. Our new owner provides us with the stability and resources to further enhance the Canary Care offering and we’re very excited and optimistic about the future and the opportunity to bring Canary Care to a wider audience.”

Adoption of innovative assistive technology has been slow in the UK. Lifecycle and Canary Care will work together, not only to improve the Canary Care product and service, but also to increase market demand and adoption rates.

Lifecycle Managing Director Kim Craven says “We are looking forward to working with the existing Canary Care team, its users and its partners to extend the product’s use of technology by adding 4/5Gservices, building Wi-Fi interfaces, adding new sensors and integrating with existing home hub technologies in this fast-moving Internet of Things space.”
