At this year’s CeBIT, the smart home specialist ROCKETHOME will present an innovative home automation solution based on a Puma™ 6 Gateway by Intel, which is especially tailored to the demands of telecommunications providers. The showcase at the Intel booth (B60/hall 2) includes different use cases from convenience to security and energy management.
The “Internet of Things” as a generic term for networked living and working is among the key topics at this year’s CeBIT. ROCKETHOME has collaborated with Intel to develop a smart home application which is based on a widely deployed Puma 6 gateway solution. The Smart Home starter kit with a central control unit will be presented as the first joint solution from ROCKETHOME and Intel at the CeBIT booth as part of a showcase on the topic the “Internet of Things”. Several different sensors and actuators are networked together here along with the Puma™ 6 device as a central control unit for the smart home. They can be controlled and automated using the user-friendly web application by ROCKETHOME. Users can achieve greater convenience, security and energy efficiency in their home with this solution. Moreover, additional use cases such as energy management through the integration of energy generation systems are realisable.
Service providers – particularly from the telecommunications industry – which want to offer their own Smart Home solution – can turn to the solution by Intel and ROCKETHOME in the future. “We appreciate the collaboration with Intel because joint innovations in the area of IoT are future-oriented“ says Yüksel Sirmasac, CEO of ROCKETHOME, “For us, openness also means supporting new technologies and companies which want to get into the smart home market with an innovative solution – Intel technology is ideal for this purpose.“
Last year, Intel laid the foundation for its own smart home platform for service providers with the volume deployment of Puma 6 gateways. “ROCKETHOME is an excellent addition to the open ecosystem that we are developing around Intel solutions for IoT. Their Smart Home solution expands the choices for our customers to deploy comfort, home security, and energy efficiency for the home”, says Martin Despain, Director of Smart Home, the Internet of Things division at Intel. Service providers benefit from a reduction in the project risk and a decreased time-to-market through the collaboration of both companies.
Interested visitors can find out more about the smart home solution by ROCKETHOME and Intel at the Intel booth B60 in hall 2 March 16th-20th 2015. In addition, ROCKETHOME is also represented at a “get-started“ joint booth in hall 16 in order to discuss the strategies for getting in the smart home market and presenting the new products of its partners.
