Smartifying homes the secured way

How does a smart home differ from a regular home? A smart home is equipped with technologies that make our lives more convenient and energy efficient. Today, the growing range of technologies encompasses smart home appliances, mobile devices and home automation systems, many of which are interconnected. But being ‘smart’ in this sense requires appliances and systems fitted with the right semiconductor solutions. They empower smart appliances, devices and systems to make sense of their environment and current situation. Working together, sensors, controllers and actuators enable members of a smart home to properly collect, interpret and process real-time data, then trigger the appropriate action or response. In an age of mounting security threats, security solutions keep all activities and system secured and out of harm’s way.

From intelligent lighting control to optimized energy consumption, each smart home function depends on intelligent semiconductors. As this rapidly changing field continues to evolve and mature, having a reputable and reliable partner in smart home semiconductor technologies such as Infineon makes all the difference.
