“Shin Kong Security has been supporting clients with cloud computing and serial signal connection 24/7 since the beginning of its service. With the emergence of Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT), SKS will leverage on the expertise of UnaBiz to integrate AI and IoT to enhance smart learning and predictability in connected devices. We will dedicate more resources in the area of smart homes, elderly monitoring, robotics, green energy, smart surveillance, image recognition, to provide competitive, intelligent and innovative service in the security industry.” – Frank Hung, General Manager of Shin Kong Security.

“We are very excited to welcome Shin Kong Security as our new investor in Taiwan. The investment not only instil great confidence in UnaBiz, but it also encourages the entire security market to jump on the IoT bandwagon. With the network established, UnaBiz will focus on supporting early adopters of IoT by providing high quality, scalable and price-fit IoT solutions, including the offering of professional services.” – Philippe Chiu, Managing Director & Co-founder of UnaBiz Taiwan.
