A Truly Connected Home
AXON Platform for Networking translates and arranges data from a variety of sources to create intuitive and useful solutions for monitoring and controlling a wide range of home activities. Imagine a home that’s smart enough to help your customers. A home that turns on the porch light as a car pulls into the driveway, unlocks the front door as the owner approaches and adjusts the thermostat to the perfect temperature as the door opens. A home that wakes your customers in the morning with pleasant lighting, percolates their coffee as they roll out of bed and even turns off the coffee pot when they leave for work. How is all of this possible? Thanks to the AXON Platform, the system detects when the homeowner’s smart phone is within a certain distance from the door.
All of these scenes — and hundreds more — are possible through IoT services supplied on a managed network with AXON Platform for Networking.
With AXON Platform for Networking, it’s easy to offer compelling new smart home services that build customer loyalty and create additional on-going revenue opportunities.
Home Automation Reference Application
AXON Platform for Networking powers a variety of reference applications that illustrate how Greenwave enables partners to deliver state-of-the-art connected services to their customers. Here, we provide an overview of connecting lighting to illuminate some possibilities.
Our sample connected lighting solution leveraged the NXP JenNet-IP™ protocol, a leading IPv6-based stack for low power networks, because the protocol offers several advantages over alternative low power protocols. Its secure, scalable and lightweight design allows for fast response time and quick recovery when used in conjunction with legacy wall switches.
Each lamp contains a wireless antenna that delivers high-quality, reliable communication between the bulbs. The solution supports up to 250 lamps on a single network and multiple lighting gateways can be combined to form an even larger network that includes thousands of lamps.
The smart lights typically consume about 80% less energy than equivalent incandescent or halogen lamps. The LEDs deliver a pleasing, warm light rated at 2700°K for incandescent replacements or 3000°K for halogen replacements.
The reference application includes:
- System integration for residential connected lighting solutions
- Software and hardware for lamp control and communication modules
- Wireless gateways and bridges
- Remote controls
- Connected lighting applications for smart phones and tablets
- Cloud-based lighting as a service with diagnostics, reporting and support capabilities
- Turn-key lighting solution with a wide selection of lamps from our partners
Connected lighting integrates with smart devices to provide a smart lighting environment that lets users control and adjust home lighting for comfort, convenience and energy savings. Lamps can be easily connected onto a home’s Wi-Fi network with their own IPv6 addresses, so they can be controlled individually or as part of a group with a smart phone, tablet or computer. Users can easily set their lighting system to turn on and off while arriving at or leaving the house, or adjust brightness on a timer to create a desired ambiance.
Unleash the Power of Your Networks
Connected lighting is just one small subset of the type of managed services that AXON Platform for Networking enables. Imagine a home that helps your customers. Imagine the managed services that make it possible.
