YoSmart’s products, based on Semtech’s LoRa Technology, enable low-power and cost-effective smart home management.
Semtech Corporation announced that KingTing Tech (YoSmart), a high-tech enterprise company focused on smart home and life products, is committed to implementing Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless RF technology (LoRa Technology) as the platform of choice for its Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
YoSmart has developed a series of LoRa-enabled products, including a HUB, a thermostat, a sprinkler, door lock, and a smart outlet for the smart home. All five devices are energy-saving and environmentally-friendly. The smart thermostat automatically adjusts the temperature of the climate control equipment in the home according to the homeowner’s preference, and the smart outlet allows a person to turn electronic devices (i.e. lamps, water heaters, humidifiers, and water dispensers) on or off remotely from their mobile phones. The IoT devices using LoRa Technology provide homeowners and property managers the ability to control the indoor climate and conserve energy.
LoRa Technology’s long-range, low-power capabilities also reduce network infrastructure costs, and its low per-unit and deployment costs allows for easy adoption of IoT devices and fast expansion of different types of use case applications.
“Our mission is to help make home life simple,” said John Xu, Chief Technology Officer at YoSmart. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology allows us to make products that bring us closer to achieving our mission and our customers are able to achieve a smart life.”
Mike Wong, Vice President of Marketing for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group, said:
“LoRa Technology works on a micro-scale, like a home, and just as well at a great distance.”
“It was designed for excellent performance with an emphasis on data security. This is what homeowners look for—something that works well and provides protection and peace of mind at accessible price points.”
The YoSmart products will be available to purchase online in the U.S. by late-2017.
