Unified Inbox Pte. Ltd. (UIB) has announced the global availability of UnificationEngine intelligent IoT messaging platform on the IBM Cloud. With UnificationEngine, people can chat using voice and text with their smart devices as easily as they chat with their friends.


Using voice and text messaging to remotely control and receive alerts and notifications from their smart home, smart enterprise, and smart city devices, users can communicate in natural language on over 20 different communications channels, including SMS, email, and the most popular global social media, messaging, and chat platforms, without the need for a separate app. UnificationEngine is the newest technology on the IBM Cloud to help developers integrate high-performance cloud services into their IT environments.

Bosch is one of the leading innovative companies that has started to integrate the UnificationEngine into its products. Speaking about UnificationEngine on the IBM Cloud, Michael Goh, Bosch’s Director of Smart Connected Solutions (Southeast Asia) said, “As a global supplier of technology and services, Bosch has developed a unique integration of UnificationEngine into our surveillance cameras. Leveraging UnificationEngine’s unified API, our surveillance cameras can communicate with users like security officers via text messaging and videos to provide them with real-time information. Users are therefore able to access a situation beforehand and plan the best course of action to address specific security situations.”

Goh added, “Authorized users can also effectively monitor crowd movements, such as queue build-ups. Using voice command or text messages, they can retrieve images and video footage from any point in time on any communications platform – be it SMS, social media or messaging apps.”


UIB CEO Toby Ruckert concluded, “We’re excited to have the security, interoperability, and convenience of UnificationEngine now be available globally to users, developers, and manufacturers through the IBM Cloud catalog. Because UnificationEngine scales with smart home, enterprise, and city solutions to make IoT solutions both frictionless and fun, we can’t wait to see what existing users like Bosch and new IBM Cloud users will create!”

1: Register as a developer;
