The collaboration between DSP Group, Rockethome and Prosyst has delivered another home automation solution for service providers.  DSP said they have integrated Prosyst’s mBS OSGi (Open Service Gateway initiative), Rockethome’s smart home plug and play solution with their DECT and ULE chipset into one end-to-end home automation and security platform.  The solution will provide a cloud and OSGi Internet of Things (IoT) architecture that allows service providers to enhance their service offering.

The jointly develop solution is based on DSP Group’s DHX91 DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE) SoC (System-on-Chip) and ULE stack technology, which allows it to be used in a number of Home Area Network (HAN) devices, such as AC sockets, door magnets, healthcare pendants, sensors and smoke alarms. The chipset is based on advanced ARM9 core, with state-of-the-art RF transceiver, power amplifiers and enhanced hardware accelerators for voice and video applications.

Rockethome’s smart home plug and play and cloud management solution will provide allow users to access and manage connected home appliances via its web portal or smartphone application.  Prosyst’s middleware for smart home via the gateway will provide local management and easy connectivity to the service provider.

 "We will contribute our next generation home automation software with a lot of new features like alerts, scenes, logic, time control and big data algorithms. The Rockethome apps upgrade the joint platform with one of the best user experiences in the market," said Yuksel Sirmasac, CEO at Rockethome.

"Integrating ULE and simplified 'upper layer' cloud and local management into our product portfolio provides a hybrid multi-technology solution,” said Daniel Schellhoss, Executive VP at ProSyst. "Our OSGi environment acts as an 'in between' layer on the gateway, addressing DSP Group's ULE solution from 'below' while presenting a technology-agnostic API to our local management logic and Rockethome's cloud management.”

"DSP Group works to constantly grow ULE market awareness. Our collaboration with ProSyst and Rockethome in the home automation and control ecosystem will extend the reach of ULE beyond the gateway and into the cloud," said Raz Kivelevich-Carmi, Director of Marketing and Business Development at DSP Group. "The OSGi framework, coupled with a robust cloud management application, creates a compelling home automation and security services solution that operators can rapidly bring to market".
