Smanos Debuts at Mobile World Congress with Smart Home Solutions and More


Barcelona – February 27, 2017 – Smanos, a trendsetting innovator and dynamic developer of wireless smart home and DIY security systems, is excited to be exhibiting under its own banner for the first time at GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from February 27 to March 2, and is proudly showcasing its highly acclaimed WiFi and GSM portfolio. From WiFi, cellular, app-enabled alarm and video systems to remote security and energy management, Smanos solutions cater to today’s mobile-driven lifestyles and ever-evolving residential needs, and ensure property owners have complete control, comfort and visual confirmation right at their fingertips within a few short minutes and easy swipes and taps. The complete Smanos smart home portfolio speaks minimalistic elegance, self-installation and self-monitoring, and is available at D11 in Hall 8.0 at Fira Gran Via throughout the 4 days.

The K1, the ultimate home automation and security center, is Smanos’s smart home gateway, combining butler- and guard-like functions into a stack of esthetically pleasing round discs. Up to 50 wirelessly connected devices, including detectors, sensors and vision systems, can be intuitively operated as part of the system, either locally on-site or via an iOS or Android mobile device. “We have added a few cool features to the K1 smart home hub so that it is Z-Wave compatible and works with the Google Nest® thermostat and Amazon Echo,” said Hayden Hsu, SVP Strategy & Marketing. “With K1’s intuitive operation and user-adjustable scalability, your smart and connected home has just become that much more adorable and affordable with the Smanos K1.” The newly enhanced K1 kit will be globally available in Q3 2017 at an MSRP of €299.

Available separately or as part of the K1 system, Smanos’s UFO Panoramic WiFi HD Camera brings clarity, immersive vision and ease of use to home monitoring, through its surveillance-grade HD fisheye lens, superior night vision and accurate motion detection technology. The Smanos UFO camera can be mounted on the ceiling or a flat surface, and provides six selectable viewing angles for all possible monitoring needs, directly on your iOS or Android smartphone. The footage is stored on-site (via an optional microSD® memory card) and soon can be accessed, shared and archived remotely via the cloud. The Smanos UFO Panoramic WiFi HD Camera will be globally available in Q2 2017 at an MSRP of €179.

As a proud winner of COMPUTEX d&i and TWICE VIP Awards, Smanos’s new Smart Video Doorbell empowers you to answer the door even when you’re not home! The doorbell captures and sends real-time video and audio to the homeowner’s and their family members’ smartphones. With the iOS or Android app, users can speak with the visitor – or potential intruder – from anywhere in the world as long as the Internet (via WiFi or cellular signals) is available. The doorbell features simple DIY installation, is AC-powered (with backup batteries for usage around 10 weeks), and works independently or with any Smanos WiFi alarm system to connect to other wireless sensors as your living situation evolves. The Smanos Smart Video Doorbell will be available globally in Q3 2017 at an MSRP of €199.
