Thanks to sensors and new intelligent systems, today's buildings and homes are becoming safer and more secure environments. Able to detect intrusions or create interactive environments with support for the elderly or people with disabilities, new technologies are making today's buildings and homes smarter, safer and more secure environments.
Sensors, IoT devices and new intelligent systems improve comfort and convenience by enabling a broader automation of tedious tasks and, in general, making lighting, climate, and security systems accessible via mobile apps to improve energy savings through more efficient scheduling of the various tasks and functions.
Making appliances in a home accessible remotely requires a gateway that provides connectivity between the local short-range network using smart plugs, for example, and the long-range, typically wireless, wide area networks (WAN).
ST offers a broad range of wired and wireless connectivity solutions for smart home applications, a wide selection of scalable motor control solutions to implement garage openers and window shutter automation systems, as well as power management ICs to ensure the highest possible efficiency at the appropriate cost point.
