Friendly offers a robust embedded client for Smart Home gateways.
The middleware enables Smart Home service providers to:
Manage multiple types of Smart Home gateways on a unified management platform
Convert existing routers to Smart Home gateways*
Friendly’s Embedded Smart Home is designed to support Zigbee, Z-wave, and other proprietary protocols. It enables remote Smart Home gateways and sensors, monitoring and management, and real-time control of lights, HVAC, and shutters. The middleware facilitates alerts for events and profile shadowing (specific protocol activation, even in the absence of an Internet connection).
The Friendly Smart Home Embedded Client is designed to overcome the challenges of Smart Home service providers looking to use multiple types of Smart Home gateways from different vendors. For example, different types of smart home gateway for varying market segments or to avoid dependency on one hardware vendor. All of this is available on Friendly’s unified Smart Home management platform.
