At ISE 2017 Bang & Olufsen announces the BeoLink SmartHome is now open for integration with other home automation solutions, with support for Crestron, Control4 and Savant products.
The system also works with products and services from Danfoss Link, DoorBird, Ecobee and OpenWeather. A BeoLink Gateway enabler allows installers to open the system, before customers choose suitable connected device from both things already installed and things yet to come.
A real-time configuration tool comes complete with "hundreds" of pre-installed drivers, with a simple graphic interface removing the coding out of home automation programming. The manufacturer's remote control allows customers to manage the home automation system and 3rd party devices, and cloud-based services provide a secure remote connection dedicated to B&O solutions, allowing installers to upgrade or service existing setups from remote locations.
“In the development of the BeoLink SmartHome the key word for us has been openness and flexibility," the company says. "Bang & Olufsen is the global leader in creating high quality sound and picture experiences and our ambition is to integrate these experiences with other in-home technology solutions through a simple, cloud-based system. That is exactly what BeoLink SmartHome is doing."
