WiZ “Connected Lights” joins Conrad Connect platform to broaden service portfolio

WiZ “Connected Lights” joins Conrad Connect platform to broaden service portfolio
To more-easily link its “Connected Lights” with other smart home applications and IoT offerings, WiZ now joins Conrad Connect platform to connect intelligent devices, apps and services from various manufacturers to one platform for free. This is an important step toward for WiZ, making its lights even more attractive to private households in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

“After presenting our Connected Lights at a major trade fair for the first time at this year’s IFA, participation in Conrad Connect is another important step. We see a growing interest of German consumers in smart home applications and at the same time a certain amount of uncertainty. Conrad has been a household name for electronics know-how and quality for almost 100 years. That creates trust,” explains Thomas Walch, Market Manager Consumer Electronics Europe. “Conrad Connect makes it even easier to connect our lights with products and services of other manufacturers. A big plus in terms of usability and comfort.”

Although design and energy efficiency remain important features, WiZ brings a new aspect into play: powerful software that enables the simple linking of lights via Internet and their control via smartphone and many other additional functions. In addition, the comfortable voice control via Google Home and Amazon Alexa is possible.

WiZ products are based on the “Connected Lights” approach, which means that each light source becomes a stand-alone element within a Wi-Fi network. Every WiZ lamp and bulb can save settings thanks to its own memory and is connected to a cloud platform via the domestic WLAN. This communicates with the help of an app with the smartphone or the tablet of the user. The user is thus not dependent on a bridge or other hardware.

The features of Conrad Connect platform for IoT makes it possible to connect intelligent devices, apps and services from different manufacturers to one platform for free. Users can design their own projects using a drag-and-drop editor or rely on a growing number of proven “Smart Living” projects from other users.

“As we continue to evolve our connected lights, we are always looking for technologies and companies with whom we can combine our products. Together with Conrad Connect, we want to make it even easier and more attractive for people to get smart lighting into their own four walls, “concludes Thomas Walch. “The Conrad platform and WiZ technology are so open and flexible that there are sure to be many more exciting new applications and features going forward.”
