Life360 and Duchossois Group Converge Family Location with Smart Home
Life360, a leading app for family location and tracking has announced a partnership with The Duchossois Group and portfolio companies, such as Chamberlain and Brivo Labs.

The Duchossois Group has become a strategic investor in Life360 in participating in a thus far undisclosed follow-on of $7 million to the $10 million Series B funding Life360 raised earlier this year.

Life360 will work with The Duchossois Group's companies to enable their Internet-connected smart home services to use family presence data via its private Family Graph API. For example, users of Chamberlain's internet-connected garage door openers could program their garage to automatically close when all members of their family were out of the house.

Also, using Brivo Labs' Social Access Management API (SAM), Life360 can easily enable their communities of users and families to control, manage, and operate other home access devices such as networked door locks.

20 milllion families, mostly in North America, are said to use Life360 products according to the company.
