The new WiFi-based products improve homeowners’ ability to scale up and remotely view both the interior and exterior of their home

 (May 16, 2016 - Shanghai) smanos, a trendsetting innovator and dynamic developer of wireless smart home and DIY security systems, is proudly bringing its Red Dot and Computex d&i Gold design icon K1, newly launched UFO Panoramic Camera and Smart Video Doorbell, as well as its highly acclaimed WiFi and cellular portfolio, to CES Asia Shanghai from May 11 to 13.

The complete smanos smart home portfolio speaks minimalistic elegance, self-installation and self-monitoring, and is available at Stand 1268 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) throughout the 3 days. From WiFi, cellular, app-enabled alarm and video systems to remote energy and security management, smanos solutions cater to today’s mobile-driven lifestyles and ever-evolving residential needs, and ensure homeowners have complete control, comfort and visual confirmation right at their fingertips within a few short minutes and easy swipes and taps.

The K1, the ultimate home automation and security center, is smanos’s ultimate smart home gateway, combining butler- and guard-like functions into a stack of esthetically pleasing round discs. “The discs come with aluminum frames and texturized plastic surfaces, particularly designed for everyday wear and tear,” said Hayden Hsu, SVP Strategy & Marketing. “smanos K1 connects to up to 50 wireless accessories with ease, and its intuitive operation both on-site and on the smartphone is a breeze. Users, young or old, can rely on their basic senses to see, hear or touch to check if K1-enabled things at home are working properly.” Such connected but wireless things include locks, HD cameras, alarm detectors/sirens and environmental sensors. A recent strategic alliance and acquisition also means that the K1 is Z-Wave compatible and works with the Google Nest® thermostat and Amazon Echo.

Comparable with high-caliber smartphones these days, smanos K1 is easily mount-and-play, and adding/removing features is just like adding/removing smartphone apps. “With such intuitive operation and user-adjustable flexibility, your smart and connected home has just become that much more adorable and affordable with smanos K1.” said Brian Stark, GM of North America. The K1 kit will be globally available in August 2016 at an MSRP of US$299.

Available separately or as part of the K1 system, smanos’s new UFO Panoramic WiFi HD Camera brings clarity, immersive vision and ease of use to home monitoring, through its surveillance-grade HD fisheye lens, superior night vision and accurate motion detection technology. The smanos UFO camera can be mounted on the ceiling or a desk surface and provides three selectable 1080p views simultaneously: a 360-degree bird’s eye view, an auto-corrected 180-degree panoramic view and a 90-degree quad view. By using your iPhone or Android smartphone, you can zoom in and out digitally and view the scene anywhere, anytime. The footage is stored on-site (via an optional microSD memory card) and can be accessed, shared and archived remotely via the cloud. The smanos UFO Panoramic WiFi HD Camera will be globally available in July 2016 at an MSRP of US$179.

Also available as a stand-alone solution or for integration into the K1 system, the Smart Video Doorbell lets you answer the door even when you’re not home! The doorbell captures sharp images of visitors even at night and sends real-time video and audio to the homeowner’s and their family members’ smartphones. Using the smartphone app, users can then speak with the visitors from anywhere as long as the Internet (via WiFi or cellular signals) is available.

The doorbell features simple, DIY installation and is battery-powered for usage around 10 weeks and allows you to wire to your existing door chime if desired using the AC power module. Homeowners can select either a metallic or wooden faceplate to blend in with their front door/porch. The smanos Smart Video Doorbell will be available for purchase globally in July 2016 at an MSRP of US$199.

Designed in the Netherlands and marketed worldwide, smanos is our complete security, monitoring and automation system lineup for today’s homeowners, Hsu said. “What makes smanos a must-have brand to distributors and retailers is that we’re truly committed to researching, designing and delivering innovative, comprehensive and easy-to-use smart home solutions that will help them outperform their sales and profit targets.” Worldwide, what’s being demanded in the residential market these days is smart, simple, sleek, mobile yet compact and integrated ingenuity, and smanos will continue providing just that, with even more home automation, remote management and monitoring options.
