SiMPNiC S1 Gateway

The S1 gateway is the central command of the IoT solution launched by SiMPNiC, a sub-brand of Connection Technology Systems Inc. (CTS). The gateway uses the Z-Wave protocol to connect to different kind of sensors for different purposes. It connects to 6-in-1 sensor (for motion, humidity, vibration, UV, illumination and temperature detection), for example, to assist with home automation, intrusion detection and home environment monitoring.

SiMPNiC said the gateway is “open but secure.” The open platform makes the gateway’s API available and integration with clients’ back-end systems can be completed easily. The gateways also features “edge security.” All the data going in and coming out the gateway are encrypted, to ensure that only authorized users have access to the home network.
 

Ava Design AVA-88 Gateway

The gateway can connect to a number of Z-Wave sensors to enable home automation. The gateway has scene control features built-in, so that all the scenes will still function when there is an Internet outage.

The gateway has both wire and wireless connection to meet the need of different installers. It also supports Amazon Alexa and Apple HomeKit so users may control their smart homes with Siri.

Other features include advanced occupancy sensing, push notifications and custom automation scenes where one devices triggers another, a set time triggers light, door or lock controls, among other applications. Homeowners can also receive notifications when water is detected in the basement, when the smoke detector is triggered.

To ensure data security, the AVA-88 gateway connects to a cloud server via VPN encryption.
 

Dome Smart Electronic Mouse Trap
