Bridgetek Will Demo Their Home Automation Tech At CES
For this coming CES, Bridgetek has already announced that they are going to make a demonstration of their home automation system called PanL. The platform have features that make it possible for users to control a number of heating systems, security systems, lighting systems as well as air condition systems present inside the house by employing only a single point of contact.
There is not much coherence in the present state of the home automation market because of the systems that are developed by different manufacturers that utilize only its specific proprietary control technology. With this, users are forced to use not only one but different apps for specific purposes.
With this setup, the home automation system presents inconvenience in a way and its technology can be deemed as frustrating at times. Users have the desire to get a technology wherein everything is centralized without the need to create specific controls for each of the systems present inside the property.
With the PanL home automation, there are hubs that are made up of a wide variety of connection options either wired or wireless such as an Ethernet that is PoE-enabled with 100Base-T, a BLE or Bluetooth low energy and 802.11 b/g/n or more commonly known as Wi-Fi. Because of these, the tech has the capacity to connect at a number of systems at the same time. The processors used are 32-bit microcontrollers that are in the Bridgetek FT900 series.
Every unit has a second generation FT813 EVE or embedded video engine that is used by the high resolution graphic controllers which is responsible for the human machine interface or HMI of the system. This is the reason why the control available for the users is simple to use as well as intuitive. It also gives them access to content with rich graphics and a multi-touch function.
One of the biggest benefits of having a centralized approach that is adapted by PanL’s home automation systems is that the different systems are operating in a coordinated manner. Moreover, data coming from various systems can be joined together thus homeowners will be able to monitor their energy consumption as a whole.
