Barcelona – Feb 26, 2018 – smanos, a trendsetting innovator and dynamic developer of wireless smart home and DIY security systems, is thrilled to be back at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from February 26 to March 1, and is proudly presenting its newest smart home security portfolio, with simulations and demos of the K1 system and UFO camera working with the Google® Assistant and Amazon® Alexa voice interactions. The complete smanos smart home portfolio speaks minimalistic elegance, self-installation and self-monitoring, and is available in Hall 8.0 at Booth F18 at Fira Gran Via throughout the 4 days.
According to Gartner research, artificial intelligence (AI), not 5G, is the main source of excitement at MWC this year. The most compelling innovations this year will deliver more personalized smartphone experiences based on device ecosystems, says a pre-show Gartner statement. “In other words, the smartphone will interact with an increasing number of new types of devices, such as sensors and intelligent ‘things,’ in the home, on the move and in the workplace.”
The K1, smanos’s ultimate home automation and security center, does just that, combining butler- and guard-like functions into a stack of esthetically pleasing round discs that work with major smart home ecosystems. “We’ve added a few really cool features to the K1 smart home hub, the most noticeable of which is Works with the Google Assistant,” said Oliver Tseng, Sales Director of Europe. “For us, it was very easy to adjust our app and cloud infrastructure. Integrating with the Google Assistant has enabled us to better serve our users across multiple languages. Instead of being limited on a single device at home, we can meet our users where they are – on the phone, in the office, in the car, while watching TV – enabling them to interact with our products not just by voice but also by typing and tapping.” The newly enhanced Red Dot Product Design and Computex d&i Gold Award winner K1 kit is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Hue® lights and Nest® thermostats, and is available for end users worldwide at an MSRP of €270, with a Z-Wave® Plus option coming out in the next quarter.
Available separately or as part of the K1 system, smanos’s 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 can be mounted on the ceiling or any flat surface, and provides six selectable viewing angles for all possible monitoring needs, directly on your iOS or Android smartphone. The footage is stored on-site (via an optional microSD® memory card) for free, and soon can be accessed, shared and archived remotely via the cloud for a fee. The smanos UFO also works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, and is globally available at an MSRP of €180.
As a proud winner of Computex d&i, TWICE VIP, DISTREE Diamond and National Hardware Show Silver Awards, smanos’s new Smart Video Doorbell empowers you to answer the door even when you’re not home! The doorbell captures and sends real-time video and audio to the homeowner’s and their family members’ smartphones. With the same free iOS or Android app, users can speak with the visitor – or potential intruder – from anywhere in the world as long as their mobile device is online. The doorbell features simple DIY WiFi installation, is AC-powered (with a built-in backup battery), and works independently or in tandem with the smanos K1 to connect to other wireless sensors as your dwelling’s requirements continue to evolve. The smanos Video Doorbell is available globally at an MSRP of €190, with optional cloud-based storage for easy sharing and archival.
