Latest WiFi and GSM systems also on display at smanos and ComLine stands

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 24 August, 2015 – Smart home and security expert smanos is pleased to announce that it will be bringing its Red Dot and Computex d&i Gold Design award-winning K1 SmartHome DIY Kit, as well as its highly acclaimed WiFi and cellular home alarm portfolio to IFA at Messe Berlin from 4-9 September 2015.

The complete smanos smart home portfolio will be on display at stand 214 in hall 15.1 (iZone) and stand 115 (distributor ComLine) in hall 17. The range embodies the design tenants of minimalistic elegance, self-installation and self-monitoring. Smanos solutions cater to today’s mobile-driven lifestyles and ever-evolving residential security and automation needs from WiFi, cellular, app-enabled alarm and video systems to remote energy and security management,.

The K1 is the ultimate home automation and security centre, and is smanos’ latest wireless smart home gateway, combining butler- and guard like functions into a stack of aesthetically pleasing round discs. The discs come with aluminum frames and texturized plastic surfaces, particularly designed for everyday wear and tear.

The 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. Wireless accessories include locks, HD cameras, alarm detectors/sirens and environmental sensors.  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.

“We’re excited to unveil the smanos K1 SmartHome DIY Kit to the European market and to showcase our latest offerings to distributors, dealers and retailers in the region,” says Brian Borghardt, General Manager of Europe at smanos.

“Comparable with high-calibre smartphones these days”, adds Daniel Chung, Global Business Development Director, “the K1 is easily mount-and-play, and adding/removing features is just like adding/removing smartphone apps. With such intuitive operation, gesture-based password protection and user-adjustable simplicity, your smart and connected home has just become that much more adorable and affordable with smanos K1.”

Other products on display at both stands include the W020/L020 WiFi/Ethernet alarm systems, the W100 WiFi/PSTN alarm, the X500/X300 GSM alarm systems, as well as a full range of wireless, battery-powered sensors and accessories.

Another highlight is the IP6 HD WiFi home security camera, which complements any smanos alarm platform and has a wide, 110-degree field of view and a state-of-the-art, SONY-enhanced, low-light vision that cannot be found elsewhere in the residential DIY security sector. The camera delivers uncannily smooth, HD quality video at 720p and also provides two-way voice communication.
