Qorvo’s ZigBee Chips Included in Levarys Smart Home System
Qorvo, provider of RF solutions, and Levarys, a developer and manufacturer of smart thermostat solutions have announced that Levarys' new Luna Smart Home System for energy management includes ZigBee chips from Qorvo's Low Power Wireless business (formerly GreenPeak Technologies).
Qorvo's ZigBee Green Power chips enable secure, long range and highly reliable wireless transmission of data between the gateway and multiple sensors and activators of the Luna Smart Home System. Qorvo's ZigBee Green Power chips' very low current draw significantly extends battery life, making the system essentially maintenance free.
Levarys' new Luna Smart Home System consists of thermostats, smart radiator valves; temperature, door and window sensors, and smart plugs that are wirelessly connected to the gateway. The flexibility of Qorvo's wireless network allows Levarys to offer starter kits that can be extended with extra devices fitting the requirements of any house. With an easy-to-use app on a smartphone or tablet, users can turn devices on and off and control the thermostat while at home or on the road. The Luna system also makes intelligent decisions based on input from sensors.
The new ZigBee Luna Smart Home System will be available as an end-user kit at electronics retailers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as of September 2016.
