A true “smart” home is when you’re sitting at your desk at the office and can control temperature in your kid’s room and lower blinds in the living room. But a phone is not enough to control the smart devices. You need a server. A hub that can connect up to 100 devices over different channels was designed at the studio for Nero Electronics.
The hub is equipped with four Wi-Fi and radio antennas, and inserting a SIM card allows it work over cellular networks as well. The hub can notify the owner of an emergency via text messages, for example if there is a leak or a door sensor was triggered. The connection works both ways: the owner can send text messages with commands back to the hub. Server state messages are shown on the round display surrounded by the touch ring.
The server has a built-in battery that can last for four hours. If power is suddenly cut, the hub will continue to work and notify the owner.
