The distributed home monitoring, information and automation system

Internet of Things

Dimming the light by voice, turning on the heating in the bathroom already from the bed and on leaving the house to be reminded to close open windows - these are the tasks of a smart home.

2013 we researched the smart home and developed a comprehensive prototype for a distributed home monitoring, information and automation system. Discarded smartphones can find new uses in this broadly scalable overall system as sensors and actuators. Numerous other devices such as smoke detectors, dimmers, microphones, motion detectors or webcams can be integrated into the flexible system - mostly wireless.

Speech recognition allows devices to be switched intuitively, and even a call for help can be placed in an emergency.



Secure contactless payment via NFC

Money was created to do three things. It has a value preservation, a means of calculating and a means of exchange. It is no wonder that electronic money is becoming increasingly attractive in the digital age.

Here, the NCF technology is particularly interesting as a medium for contactless payment transactions. For a company specializing in this technology, together with leading NCF and RFID companies we researched secure and encrypted communication capabilities and developed a prototype application.


Data Privacy Management

With our predecessor, the software house Phenom IT, scince 2010 we supported the project DaPriM – a data protection technology based on digital rights management, initiated by the FH Muenster. The goal of the three-year research project was the development of a privacy-enhancing technology.

The idea

A trusted system stores and processes data in compliance with digital rights. Direct access to input raw data is impossible. Only precisely specified processed data is output. Raw data remains irreversibly locked under hardware anchoring.


The use of DaPriM technology allows secure handling of personal data. Designing the technology for ready-to-use products provides confidence in the processing of data not previously available on the market.

Project partners

Besides us, other partners were the Chair of Network and Data Security of the Ruhr-University of Bochum, the Independent Center for Privacy Schleswig-Holstein (ULD) and the 2B Advice GmbH.

The project was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the FH-proFunt program.
