30 Jul Status update – Smart Hub
It’s time for a status update on our coming gateway: The Smart Hub. The Smart Hub is the brain of Future Home, and it communicates with everything that makes your home smart. After endless months of development and preparations we are finally at the last steps of prototyping.
The Future Home Smart Hub comes with a brand new operating system and it’s packed with new functionality, like easier WiFi setup, faster memory, Z-Wave radio and support for installation on locations without an internet connection.
In spite of some delays during the development process, cutting corners have never been an option. The Smart Hub should be able to work uninterupted in peoples homes for years, so doing a proper job here is vital. The Smart Hub’s hard- and software are designed perfectly for each other, by people who work together daily. This is the only way we can make smart homes both functional and feature rich, with the Smart Hub as a rock solid foundation for it all.
You can also find some more details about the Smart Hub in this earlier blog post.
We hope to have the Smart Hub ready in October, in the meantime we will deliver our current Gateway. So it’s still possible to order Future Home and upgrade to the new Smart Hub when it arrives, or pre-order the Smart Hub now.
As soon as the new Smart Hub is launched, we will also add support for a whole range of exciting new Z-Wave products. This will add a larger variety of devices that can be controlled by Future Home!
