Semtech Corporation (NASDAQ: SMTC), a leading supplier of semiconductor products and advanced algorithms, announced that YoSmart, a high-tech company focused on smart home systems and products, has integrated Semtech’s LoRa® devices into Its new “YoLink” IoT product line for smart homes. Taking advantage of the ease of deployment of LoRa devices, the solution can quickly connect to a variety of smart home applications such as doors, security systems, electrical outlets and water pipes to accurately monitor data in real time and create a safer and more economical home environment.
“Semtech’s LoRa devices provide an ideal platform for building smart home IoT solutions that fill the technological gaps of traditional home networks such as Wi-Fi,” said Manxiang Xu, CEO of YoSmart: “With LoRa, YoSmart develops IoT solutions that give homeowners instant visibility into how efficiently their homes are being used. The YoLink portfolio, now available in the US, connects multiple apps on the same platform for smarter management.”
The YoLink portfolio includes a complete home starter kit, a variety of LoRa-based sensors, and a gateway/hub that enables long-range connectivity, providing stable network coverage up to 300 meters from device locations. This long-range network coverage enables reliable connection and monitoring of applications over a greater range than traditional home Wi-Fi networks can reach.
YoLink Smart Home Starter Kit
The YoLink Starter Kit is a cost-effective portfolio of home sensors that provide comprehensive data on a variety of applications in the home. As the first LoRa-based consumer smart home kit, the YoLink kit includes a range of sensors for applications such as motion tracking, door lock management, garage door monitoring, gas/water valve usage, plumbing leak detection, and power outlet monitoring. The solution integrates seamlessly with existing home infrastructure and provides real-time data including energy usage and usage status. In addition, door locks and plumbing leak sensors alert homeowners to potential risks and unusual movements in their homes, giving them peace of mind for their home security and the ability to react quickly to avoid risks.
Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT, Wireless and Sensing Products Group at Semtech, said: “LoRa devices provide a complete set of development accelerators that simplify the process of creating, deploying and managing IoT applications, providing users with immediate operational benefits. LoRa-based The application makes it more convenient and easy for homeowners and occupants to connect home systems, and provides an ideal platform to solve the shortcomings of traditional network platforms in indoor connectivity.”
