From new wireless solutions to intelligent door intercoms for the existing telephone system and wine refrigerators that can be monitored using an app, innovative smart home products were one of the highlights at CeBIT 2015.
By offering a wide range of useful solutions which meet the actual demands of millions of users, manufacturers are confident that the latest developments will lead to a booming smart home market, as Ludger Voetz reports.
Many manufacturers of Smart Home products chose this year’s Cebit to showcase their latest innovations for the modern home. Most of the new solutions aim to make the life of the user easier and safer at the same time. Z-Wave Europe and Western Digital presented a USB stick which retrofits the NAS systems WD My Cloud and My Cloud Mirror with the Z-Wave wireless system. This way, the network storage turns into a control panel for the smart home. In combination with the plug-in Smart Home UI, the smart home can be set up via a PC, smartphone or tablet.
