Shaspa and Tatung have shown a new smart home platform at Ifa in Berlin. Powered by the IBM Informix software, the jointly developed platform will allow consumers to manage and interact with the home’s functions such as energy, security and entertainment systems, using voice recognition, mobile applications and physical gestures. 

The first product based on this combination will be a low-cost, scalable Smart Home starter kit aimed at property developers and managers. The Smart Home kit will allow businesses and individuals to improve the energy efficiency of their home or building by managing energy and security remotely through the Shaspa Bridge. As a result, users will have the ability to automate many tasks such as setting alarms or adjusting air-conditioners via an interface accessed using the internet, a mobile device or even 3D applications such as gesture control. 

The Shaspa Bridge acts as a central hub that processes data from sensors and actuators such as air conditioners, thermostats and lighting systems. Combined with the Informix database software and its native TimeSeries capability, Shapsa is able to store data and respond to consumer requests, as well as provider business customers with trend analysis to gain insight into customer behavior and increase efficiency of services.
