At least four A-list celebrities have already been on walk-throughs, a fact that seems entirely appropriate for a glamorous, 17,000-square-foot home designed with movie stars in mind. But being merely lavish in Beverly Hills, (a place where lavish is as standard as indoor plumbing and electricity), is not what makes the recently completed Sierra Alta mansion such a noteworthy addition to the 90210 neighborhood.

It’s an awkward fact of life: the smart home, and the Internet of Things in general, is meant to make life more streamlined but can often just leave us poking at our phones more frequently.

Today marks the availability ofCirrent, the new way to connect any smart, connected product to the Internet automatically and securely. Cirrent’s service enables connected products—such as home thermostats and televisions—to connect to the Internet automatically and securely, right out of the box. With more things on the Internet than people, it’s predicted there will be 30 billion devices online by 2020—ranging from sprinkler systems to teddy bears. In fact, approximately 88% of consumer electronic devices shipped in 2015 were Internet-enabled. Before Cirrent, the setup process for most connected products involved multiple steps, confusing passwords, and in more than 20% of cases, consumers failing to connect their “smart” products to the Internet at all (source: Accenture).  The difficulty of getting products connected to Wi-Fi is a fundamental barrier to the adoption of connected products, and results in lost sales, high support costs, and high returns.  Cirrent addresses these issues head on by making products secure, reliable, and easy to use, which adds directly to the bottom line of the product companies.
