Akuvox has revealed their new Wireless Smart Security System powered by Zigbee.
Introducing the Akuvox Smart Security System using Zigbee connectivity range of wireless smarthome and smart security devices.
The Akuvox X933-H Indoor Intercom Answering Panel is a premium door access / communication intercom featuring 7" full-colour touchscreen. This X933H model features Zigbee connectivity for integration with the whole range of wireless connected smarthome and smart security devices.
The X933H can be used as a smart home centre and provides HD audio and video communication via SIP 2.0 protocol and can work with Zigbee devices via Zigbee 3.0.
The Zigbee protocol has been around for more than a decade, and is considered as an alternative to standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for low-powered devices that don't require a lot of bandwidth such as smarthome sensors.
Zigbee does not focus on point-to-point communication like Bluetooth it operates; in a mesh network, which is why it is ideal for the smart home.
A mesh network functions as a network connection spread out among wireless nodes. These can then communicate with each other and share a network connection across a large area. Nodes are essentially small transmitters that function in the same way as a wireless router. Zigbee's ability to support mesh networking means it can boost data transmission range and provide greater stability (even when a single connected node fails and isn't functioning).
Supported housing smart solutions
Research strongly suggests that smart technologies can have significant benefits to residents' health and wellbeing - and this is particularly pertinent to elderly, vulnerable, unwell or disabled people living in remote or supported housing.
Smart building monitors - such as the Akuvox X933H smart system - can provide discreet 24/7 environment monitoring; allowing residents their independence and privacy, whilst ensuring family, friends or support staff can monitor their home for safety and comfort.
As well as monitoring day-to-day environmental factors such as temperature and humidity, a smart home monitoring system can provide alerts and emergency alarms over the network, either to PC or smartphone should any of the sensors detect a problem such as smoke alarm, gas leak or potential flooding.
