Shipshape, a company on a mission to make all homes safe, reliable, and efficient, today announced that it has secured a strategic investment from Aeotec Americas, a leading provider of smart home hardware solutions. This collaboration will empower homeowners to save money on maintenance and energy by integrating an ecosystem of smart home hardware and other sources of data to power advanced analytics, recommend actions, and connect service providers to reduce risks and improve system performance.
This announcement is timely as consumers are looking to get more out of their smart home devices. According to research from Parks Associates and Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) research, for the majority of homeowners with connected devices, the benefit is convenience. For example, smart speakers or smart lighting systems primarily give users the ability to remotely control devices from their mobile phones. Consumers want more value from the smart home. In the same report, Parks and the CSA note that customers are interested in services that go beyond smart home devices, like performance monitoring for their HVAC system and filter change services for their refrigerators.
This partnership between Shipshape and Aeotec Americas helps consumers unlock the value of their connected products and find new ways to save money on the operation of their homes to reduce home maintenance risks, improve system performance and increase energy efficiency. The platform includes an easy-to-use app, powered by artificial intelligence, and developed by experts with decades of experience in home maintenance and energy management.
“Shipshape has created an innovative platform with a straightforward approach that offers homeowners real visibility into the well-being and efficient operation of what is likely their greatest asset,” said Colin Marshall, President of Aeotec Americas.

Shipshape’s Seed Round investors include Alabama Power Company, a subsidiary of Southern Company the second biggest utility in the United States, the President of Signature Homes which is one of the biggest homebuilders in the Southeast, and Glenn Krevlin a consumer expert and former board member of Restoration Hardware.
