CES®, the largest global gathering of innovation and connectivity, has been the launch pad for next-generation technology solutions that have changed the world. CES® 2017 convened more than 3,800 exhibiting companies, 600 startups & 175,000 industry professionals in Las Vegas to drive the ever-evolving global technology industry forward.
After the successful launch of its Modular IoT Gateway reference platform late last year, Volansys, ‘One Stop IoT Solution Enabler’, launched its latest solution HomeBridge – A Smart, Cost-effective and Multi-function IoT Gateway for Home Automation at CES® 2017, Las Vegas, Nevada. Along with showcasing various IoT solutions, it also announced its strategic partnership with Ayla Network, a leading IoT platform provider.
“The enormous response from design manufacturers, OEMs, cloud service providers & media for HomeBridge at the CES exhibition suite suggested that 2017 will bring us closer to our potential customers’ needs and we will thrive upon serving them the best way possible and enhancing our position in the IoT and connectivity space,” said Dhruvesh Patel, CTO, Volansys.
HomeBridge is a highly reliable wireless ZigBee® Gateway with the quick & easy commissioning of sensors/devices & can be plugged into a standard wall outlet anywhere at home/office. It is designed to connect & control a broad range of devices such as thermostats, air conditioners, light controls, door locks, garage doors, security systems, & various appliances; it can connect 60+ such devices.
Volansys’ partnership with leading IoT platform providers has opened opportunities for OEMs & device manufacturers to develop cloud-based IoT enabled appliances with pre-certification support at the reduced time, capital & effort. These collaborations will further rightly place Volansys to offer IoT and connectivity solutions for Home & Industrial Automation, Utility & Energy, and Consumer Electronics.
“Looking at the potential of HomeBridge combined with our end-to-end product engineering expertise, we are already working towards making it an indispensable & flexible IoT gateway solution, by adding other IoT cloud support, mobile application features and getting it pre-certified, to further shorten time to market for our customers and partners. We also plan to launch its other variants to support multiple other applications and optimize the cost further,” said Dhaval Parikh, Director of Engineering, Volansys.
