From motion sensors and detectors to door locks and "smart" AC plugs, home automation (HA), control and security applications represent the latest addition to the digitally connected home. As the leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications at home, DSP Group offers an RF-based solution for addressing the rapidly growing HA market. Ensuring the highest level of reliability, performance and durability, the solution enables CE manufacturers, operators and service providers to easily introduce diverse HA, control and security products to their customers.
DSP Group's cutting-edge solution is based on the DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE) standard. An extension of DECT, the new standard enables development of multi-year, battery-run HA applications that enjoy all of the advantages of DECT such as interference-free connectivity and extended range. Leveraging its long-term technological and market leadership in DECT, DSP Group designed the architecture for DECT ULE and, together with the DECT Forum, is driving its adoption.
DECT ULE is a natural choice for HA, control and security applications. The standard enables delivery of automated messages to wireless network HA devices across an extended range. DECT ULE creates economies of scale and lowers total cost of ownership (TCO). As a result, the technology is ideal for the development of varied HA products including:
- Motion sensors (with and without voice-enabled capabilities)
- Smoke/flood/CO2 detectors
- Door locks
- Glass break-in devices
- “Smart" AC plugs
- Valuables trackers
