In the cooperation with Telekom Austria Group, we have developed a functional prototype of the Smart Multi-Purpose Home Gateway (SyMPHOnY 1.0) which may act as a centre-piece in any smart home or residential building.
The main aim of this project is to create a demonstrator of universal smart home gateway which merges the detection and forwarding of alarm systems’ events, local smart metering with other smart home services, sensors and actuators.
The demonstrator is able to run on OpenWRT-based standard IP home gateway (router) and on Linux Ubuntu-based device (e.g. netbook) as well. As the primary communication platform the state of the art and well recognized wireless and wired technologies as well (e.g. Wireless M-Bus, IEEE 802.11, Zigbee, Bluetooth, Ethernet, IMS, 3G/4G broadband, etc.) are utilized.
The demonstrator's design follows a snippet approach when specific tasks are performed by the regions of re-usable source code which can be easily created and managed.
The demonstrator provides following features:
