February 03, 2013 by Jeff Shepard

GreenPocket GmbH and ZyXEL Communications Corp. announced the immediate launch of their smart home cooperation. At this year's E-world (5th-7th February in Essen) GreenPocket will be premiering its smart home solution with ZyXEL's SHG3305 Smart Home Service Gateway. Coinciding with the E-world 2013, ZyXEL and GreenPocket have announced the launch of their Smart Home cooperation. In the first phase of the collaboration, GreenPocket is incorporating the ZyXEL gateway SHG3305 into its smart home solution.

"We're pleased to have won a strong hardware partner. The SHG3305 gateway is the perfect access point for our new smart home package," commented Dr. Thomas Goette, GreenPocket CEO.

The SHG3305 gateway supports a variety of functions and services for more energy efficiency, convenience and safety in the home. In combination with GreenPocket's smart home software, the gateway enables the targeted control and automation of heating systems as well as electrical and domestic devices or of entire rooms. The user can operate the solution quickly and simply via various devices including tablet PCs or via smartphones. The solution is based on the wireless standard Z-Wave via which the individual hardware components, like actuators and sensors, are controlled.

Sebastian Richter, Project Engineer at ZyXEL is also delighted about the new collaboration: "Both companies complement each other ideally with their know-how. Fusing our technical competence into a smart home solution is therefore a logical step."
