AlertMe developed its Smart Home hub so people can control their household appliances and devices using the internet or a smartphone. Its software powers the Hive heating service sold by British Gas. Last year the business moved its headquarters from Cambridge’s Silicon Fen to London’s Silicon Roundabout, to attract the tech-savvy talent it needs to go on growing. Since it was founded in 2006, AlertMe has raised £39m in venture capital from investors including Vantage Point Partners, Chrysalix, Good Energies and Index Ventures. The company grew sales to £18.7m in 2013, under chief executive Mary Turner, 56.
