RF Technology for the Smart Home... and Smarter World
Wireless networks have existed in our homes for decades.
Cordless phones and wireless data networks like WiFi and Bluetooth are common applications in our daily lives.
Today, the third wireless network of home applications is now starting to emerge, addressing low power consumption and low data rate sense and control applications like remote controls, energy efficiency, home security, access control, HVAC monitoring, lighting, home health care, etc.
The Smart Home is finally becoming a reality.
Remote controls are among the first applications that have benefited from the ultralow power ZigBee RF4CE communication standard.
Today, many large operators, service providers and utilities are launching Smart Home applications that can be managed via the set-top box/gateway and from there over the web, allowing their subscribers to transform their homes into state-of-the-art machines that can be monitored and controlled from anywhere in the world via smart phones or tablets.
Introducing the Smart Home Butler
Consumers are not interested in connected devices, they want a Smart Home Butler who can assist them in turning off the lights and the heating when nobody is in a room or locking back doors when that was forgotten.
The Smart Home Butler is a collection of services that includes a wide range of connected sensors, connectivity to a hub or gateway, actuators, and cloud intelligence that gathers and analyzes this input, learns how the family lives and how the home is used and can make intelligent decisions to make homes more comfortable, safer and more energy efficient.
The Smart Home Butler will take care of your home, your most valuable asset
