Nortek Security acquires Numera (Updated)

Updated. Numera, which those of us with long memories remember as iMetrikus (before 2011, and also a Grizzled Telehealth Pioneer), announced late on Tuesday that it has been acquired by Carlsbad, California-based Nortek Security & Control. Nortek is known for security and home controls/automation (2GIG), with a significant holding in generally white-labeled traditional PERS units mostly under the Linear brand. Numera’s Libris and Libris+ PERS with telehealth connectivity will be sold under the Numera brand and be fitted into Nortek’s existing health-related business and home controls, according to the press release. The EverThere telehealth/activity/location reporting platform, according to Nortek’s FAQs, is especially important as this cloud-based health and wellness software platform can integrate into their home controls area. The transaction, according to Nortek, is valued at $12 million and they disclosed that the acquired businesses recorded unaudited net sales of approximately $5 million in 2014. It does not include the Numera Social behavior change/social engagement business which will be “rebranded”.
