At Computex Taipei 2015, Intel demonstrated IoT gateway solutions, Bay Trail processing platform and Quark SoC, which could be applied smart home applications.
The Quark SoC X1000 enabled IoT gateway can connect to analog I/O devices like temperature, humidity, smoke and Co2 sensors, or digital I/O devices like smart bulbs and connected shades. Supporting RS-485, the IoT gateways can connect to smart meters, fan coil units and total heat exchangers. The quark-based intelligent gateway enables heat recovery, and controls of lighting, air conditioning, motorized curtains, screens and projectors at home. Regarding wireless communications, the gateway supports 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Z-Wave and ZigBee. The Linux-based solution also features Wind River embedded software for cloud management of the intelligent connected systems.
Intel IoT Gateway platform Moon Island and Bay Trail processor(BYT) can be applied for the whole-home system. It can be applied for home health, security and automation like door lock/unlock and monitoring. Quanta launched a 10.1-inch control panel and four-in-one sensor to detect air quality (VOC), light, humidity and temperature. With Microsoft’s software, the Quanta Smart Home Gateway provides security alerts and ensures the temperature, lighting and air quality are just as the users like when they return. The users can change settings whenever they are to accommodate a new plan.
With increasing Internet security concerns, Intel McAfee, a cybersecurity software, creates secure home automation and remote home monitoring technologies called McAfee LiveSafe applied in ADT Pulse and Samsung HomeSync. Starting in 2014, McAfee LiveSafe service, the company’s flagship consumer security product, has been offered with the remote home automation features of ADT’s Pulse service to control home security equipment, temperature, lights, door locks, and other small appliances.
