Levarys chooses Qorvo's ZigBee chips to facilitate smart home automation

July 21, 2016 – Qorvo, a provider of RF solutions and Levarys, a developer and manufacturer of smart thermostat solutions, announced that Levarys’ Luna Smart Home System for energy management includes ZigBee chips from Qorvo’s Low Power Wireless business (formerly GreenPeak Technologies). Qorvo’s ZigBee Green Power chips enable secure, long range wireless transmission of data between the gateway and multiple sensors and activators of the Luna Smart Home System. Qorvo’s ZigBee Green Power chips’ low current draw extends battery life.

Levarys’ Luna Smart Home System consists of thermostats, smart radiator valves; temperature, door and window sensors, and smart plugs that are wirelessly connected to the gateway. The flexibility of Qorvo’s wireless network allows Levarys to offer starter kits that can be extended with extra devices fitting the requirements of any house. With an app on a smartphone or tablet, users can turn devices on and off and control the thermostat while at home or on the road. The Luna system also makes intelligent decisions based on input from sensors. For example, residents can efficiently heat individual rooms by combining a smart radiator valve with a small temperature and window sensor. If someone forgets to close a window, the Luna system will automatically stop heating the room. It will also turn the heating back on once the window is closed.

From the gateway to the smart plug, all Luna smart home devices are designed for today’s contemporary homes. In order to protect the personal data of the residents, information from the devices is collected and managed on secure servers hosted in a German datacenter. The ZigBee Luna Smart Home System will be available as an end user kit at electronics retailers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as of September 2016.
