Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leader in secure, intelligent wireless technology for a more connected world, has launched its 3D virtual smart home platform – an interactive journey that takes users through innovative smart home solutions, various applicable protocols, and ecosystem connections.
Users can take a self-guided tour and explore three different uses cases: home security, home automation and health, as well as the protocols and ecosystems they work with and connect to.
“The past two years overhauled the way we live, forcing us to spend most of our time at home and leading many to enhance their houses with new, modern applications for both practicality and aesthetics,” said Jake Alamat, vice president and general manager, IoT Home & Life, Silicon Labs. “At Silicon Labs, we have believed in the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the smart home for a decade, propelling us to a leadership position in product simplicity, reliability and robustness. Our foresight and ability to work with all protocols makes Silicon Labs an ideal partner for developers.”
The self-guided Silicon Labs tour allows users to explore each area of the virtual home: the front door, kitchen, bathroom and office, as well as their different applications and use cases, painting a full picture of an integrated smart home. The platform will continue to evolve in lockstep with Silicon Labs as new programs are launched with ecosystem partners and new products and applications are integrated to meet the world’s growing IoT needs.
Silicon Labs created the Z-Wave wireless protocol and for years was the sole manufacturer of Z-Wave microchips. More recently, the company transformed Z-Wave into an open protocol that allows others to also manufacturer the microchips to the specification.
