Smart home manufacturers to show ULE developments in Berlin

Panasonic

The number of smart home solutions based on Ultra-Low Energy (ULE) technology is increasing rapidly.

Companies like Panasonic, VTech, Crow, Gigaset, and Sercomm have developed a wide range of new products such as sensors and detectors, dimmable lights, and starter kits which leverage the benefits of the Ultra-Low energy standard.

As a result, smart homes are becoming affordable for millions of users for the very first time. The latest developments and innovations will be presented at IFA.

Members of the ULE Alliance, a non-profit organisation dedicated to developing the full potential and worldwide market adoption of ULE, will showcase their new ULE-powered products for the smart home and IoT at IFA 2016 in Berlin (September 2-7). ULE technology is deemed to be the most secure and stable wireless networking solution for smart homes. With its long range and support of two-way-communication for voice and video, ULE allows the setup of entire home solutions at low costs.

At IFA 2016, the ULE Alliance will highlight products from its members Crow, Gigaset, Sercomm, VTech Telecommunications, and Panasonic. The companies will showcase a broad range of certified devices for smart home and IoT applications, based on a number of semiconductor platforms. Chip manufacturers such as DSP Group, Dialog Semiconductor, and Intel will also demonstrate live at IFA how ULE products can be controlled via voice command.

Among the highlights at the ULE Alliance stand are a motion sensor with pet immunity function from Sercomm, a dimmable light from VTech, a curtain motion detector from Crow, a base station for up to 48 sensors or actors from Gigaset, as well as smart home products and starter kits from Panasonic.

The majority of these products have already been certified by the ULE Alliance. The ULE Certification Programme is a standards-conformance programme, enforcing high quality requirements for product operation to achieve a consistent user experience. As certified devices from different manufacturers can be combined within one network, users can setup their smart homes of choice and shop around, meaning that the smart home is becoming affordable for many consumers for the very first time.

The stand of the ULE Alliance and its members is located in hall 6.2 (booth 102).
