Origin Wireless raises $14M to advance commercialization of WiFi sensing technology

Origin Wireless announced it has closed its recent financing round and raised a total of $14 million from key investors and partners including Verizon Ventures and Alarm.com.

Prior to closing, Origin achieved key milestones as a high-tech startup, including its first award-winning commercial product with the Linksys Aware in 2019, and continues to build a solid IP portfolio.

“With the support of our investors from this funding round, we will be rapidly commercializing our wirelessAI value-added products and services with many global partners,” said Dr. Ray Liu, Founder and CEO of Origin.

“At Verizon Ventures, we’re excited about the future of connected living services that can be delivered in an unobtrusive and natural way,” said Michelle McCarthy, Managing Director of Verizon Ventures.

“Origin Wireless is a pioneer in applying AI to wireless signal disruption data, enabling motion sensing that doesn’t require several single-use-case devices and sensors. We look forward to supporting this seasoned team as they develop their proprietary technology.”

“As innovators in smart home and business security technology, we actively seek out technologies that offer practical potential application across our platform,” said Alarm.com Chief Product Officer Dan Kerzner.

“Investing in Origin and their team broadens our research and development and enhances our efforts to deliver additional value to our partners and customers.”
