TV Connect 2016: SoftAtHome Awarded in Best Smart Home Service Category for its CloudAtHome Internet of Things Solution
TV Connect, London ExCel, UK – April 28, 2016– SoftAtHome (stand 79), a software provider for operator CPE devices enabling convergent services for the digital home, is proud to have won this year’s TV Connect Industry Award for “Best Smart Home Service”.
The Internet of Things is changing our world and the way we use our connected devices. Retail connected objects remain vertical and forbid communication and connectivity between all in-home devices.
With CloudAtHome IoT, SoftAtHome proposes a multi-standard multi-protocol solution, enabling interaction between all connected devices. The protocol-agnostic, open architecture and strong standards support means CloudAtHome will include new technologies as they become available.
This approach also means that CloudAtHome can easily be ported to any newer hardware. Home Gateway (HGW), onebox, Set-Top-Box (STB) but a NAS can also host IoT services and on dedicated IoT gateways.
CloudAtHome IoT is a Software-only service that can run on a large variety of devices. Independently of radio protocols or standards, this new service enables all objects (sensors, heaters, garage doors…) of the home to interact between each other, and to be easily managed by the end-user. It deals with all four Internet of Things domains: security, energy, health-care and comfort.
CloudAtHome IoT is agnostic to radio protocols with field deployments already supporting DECT ULE, Bluetooth BLE, Z-Wave, ZigBee and Wireless MBUS for example. Its openness makes the solution future-proof.
The TV Connect Industry Awards celebrate excellence in connected entertainment innovation around the globe. This event is widely respected and recognized within the industry.
The awards were announced on Wednesday 27 April 2016 at the OXO2 in London during TV Connect, where SoftAtHome demonstrated its awarded solution, Personal TV, and many more on its stand 79.
Meet SoftAtHome on Booth 79, in ExCel during TV Connect from 28th to 30th of April 2015.
