- FireAngel said its predictive algorithm management information platform had been granted a patent by the European Patent Office.

The company also announced a board shakeup as part of a strategic plan to transition to a more technology-led connected home solutions provider.

Graham Whitworth, executive director, would become a non-executive director with effect from the release of the company's annual results, expected in late March 2020. As a non-executive director, Graham would continue to have business development responsibilities, in particular working to exploit FireAngel's strong IP portfolio globally.

John Conoley, executive chairman, would then take over line responsibility for sales and customer service.

Nick Rutter, co-founder and chief product officer, would step down from the board with immediate effect and continue in his current role to focus on connected home development.
