Wireless Test Solutions for Smart Home Automation

Published: 22nd October 2015

More and more household devices are becoming connected to our homes. Our mobiles and tablets can control our thermostats, monitor our homes via video cameras, manage our security systems… from anywhere in the world.

In the not too distant future your car will tell your home that you’ve almost arrived and activate your central heating, heat up your oven, and switch on the lights.

Until recently, the use of Wi-Fi for home automation lacked efficiency with regard to cost and power consumption.
