Kemuri is an early stage start-up in the Internet of Things sector. It develops both hardware and software for B2B customers who need machine learning to provide improved services. Manufacturing is located in Surrey.

Kemuri produces multi-sensor Smart Power Sockets with an API to a continuous pattern detection and alerting system. The first use, as a minimum viable product, is as a wellbeing monitor for vulnerable people living independently, such a with early stage dementia. Trials have started in sheltered housing and plans are in place for scale-up and further development.

In the short term, the UK market is for 800,000 with dementia and 2.5 million over 75 live alone. Globally, there is a growing market for millions of ageing people.

In the longer term, with the planned development, mains networked smart power sockets will be installed with artificial intelligence control of switching equipment to minimise use of electrical power. We predict 20 billion to be installed within two decades.
