Qwinix and AWS Transform Smart Home Community Living with AYU.
AYU (Ah-yoo) – a secure, subscription-based platform, helps members of residential communities find amenities within their communities – such as transit information, home maintenance scheduling, parcel collection, and community events. AYU, Sanskrit for “life”, seized the opportunity to create smart home living for multi-dwelling units by tapping into the expertise of Qwinix Technologies and leveraging Amazon Web Services.
