Total turnkey solutions comprising system-on-chip (SoC), modules, software and mobile apps that enable any home device or Internet of Things (IoT) device to be smart and controllable for energy saving and home and building automation purposes are now available from Greenvity Communications.
At the core of these solutions are Greenvity’s patented Hybrii® SoCs, which integrate HomePlug Green PHY powerline communication (PLC) and ZigBee wireless for robust and extended range communication for smart LED lighting, home and building automation, industrial M2M, and energy management.
The Greenvity system solutions provide all the functions that are needed for rapid prototype and even pre-production design. Ready-to-go boards and software enable significantly reduced time-to-market and cost of development. OEMs and ODMs have the flexibility to customize and scale up or down the modules and the baseline software to fit specific applications. Customers only need to add their own software layer to quickly develop innovative and differentiating IoT devices.
Greenvity’s first IoT solutions focus on controlled LED lighting and home and building automation products such as LED lamps, down lights, high bay lights, LED tubes, street lights, and also thermostats, HVAC, routers and set-top boxes.
Three modules being introduced include the GV-Controller, GV-LED and GV-Sensor, powered by Greenvity’s Hybrii® SoCs, GV7011 and GV7013 chips. Each GV-LED module and GV-Sensor module can communicate with and be controlled by the GV-Controller via either PLC or wireless to form an IoT network that mobile devices can access and control wirelessly and remotely.
Greenvity Smart Lighting Software suite and mobile apps (supporting iOS and Android) are provided with the modules without a licensing fee and enable monitoring, controllability and intelligence of up to 255 lighting devices and communications with mobile phones and tablets. API is provided so that OEM/ODM customers can add their own application software to differentiate and enhance their products.
“Greenvity’s new turnkey IoT solutions enable OEMs/ODMs to quickly build their products and get into the hands of consumers without compromising performance and reliability,” said Hung Nguyen, CEO of Greenvity. “Our solution for smart LED lighting and home and building automation consists of system-on-chips, modules and software that together will significantly reduce time-to-market and cost of development for our customers.”
