"Adomo, Inc. announced today that it has successfully closed a seed funding round from Bridge Ventures Fund III in Denmark. This investment, along with prior investments, brings Adomo's total seed funding to $4 million. The funds will be used to continue development of a Linux server-based home information system that allows families to network Internet enabled devices and share important family information. This market is expected to reach $5 billion by the year 2005."

"Adomo's system addresses the need for a home information system that fits the patterns and lifestyle of the family. It consists of a Linux-based server, thin client terminals, home information applications, and web-based services. It is designed from the ground up for the family environment, allowing fast access to information by all family members from anywhere in the home. The applications support common home information needs such as address books, calendars, and playing digital music."

"Adomo's home server, the AdomoBase, acts as a residential gateway, combined with centralized storage and distribution of the custom applications and data to the remote devices. Adomo's thin client terminals allow fast, easy access to the information and the Internet from anywhere in the home. Both the server and the appliances use the GNU/Linux operating system."
