Neotion, which specialises in the production of secure devices for digital TV applications, has unveiled a secure smart home eco-system called â€˜Neohomeâ€™, aimed at enabling broadcasters and operators to exploit new revenue streams.
Neohome is based around its suite of Home Gateways and its own GS1 security processor, designed in-house and compatible with a wide range of wireless smart home devices â€“ and will be presented on its IBC stand in Hall 4 booth B53.
Neotion describes the aim of the new eco-system as being to position itself as a smart home technology solution provider, by offering a complete eco-system driven by gateways using smart home communications standards such as Zigbee and Z-Wave, together with home automation devices including secure Wi-Fi cameras. The company anticipates this package will meet consumer requirements for safety and security as well as lighting and energy control.
Neotion says that by using a Neohome network, all data, videos and photos transmitted across it, at home as well as in the cloud, will be encrypted and fully secured. In addition to being driven by its GS1 security chip, Neohome gateways will feature an NFC (Near-Field Communication) solution enabling them to be easily and securely paired with smart home devices.
Leveraging its long track-record in promoting interoperability for CE and operator products through its Conditional Access Modules (CAMs) and other TV products, Neotion also plans to launch a certification and approval program for gateways and RF devices, to ensure full interoperability with all operator devices.
Launch of the first Neohome commercial and deployment offers is planned for Q2 2016, the company says.
