The Smart Home Begins Now
Smart homes are becoming a reality. Residents are using applications for home monitoring, improved energy efficiency, light & access control, and lifestyle & family monitoring. Service providers and utilities are launching smart home applications that can be managed through a set-top box or gateway, allowing subscribers to turn their homes into state-of-the-art environments and connect from anywhere in the world, via the cloud, on their smartphones. Smart home devices require an ultra-low power network, using IEEE 802.15.4 wireless technology. Qorvo’s chipsets can easily connect devices to a central home gateway with a safe and reliable, maintenance-free network.
