ZigBee chip targets smart home & IoT applications

Qorvo’s ZigBee chips will be incorporated into Levarys’ Luna Smart Home System, including thermostats, radiator valves, doors, windows, and smart plugs wirelessly connected to a home gateway. The ZigBee chips have been designed as highly integrated RF solutions and SoCs with long range and high interference rejection. Qorvo’s ZigBee Green Power chips’ very low current draw significantly extends battery life, making the system very low maintenance. Levarys offers starter kits that can be extended with extra devices to fit the requirements of any house. With an included easy-to-use app on a smartphone or tablet, users can turn devices on and off and control the thermostat while at home or on the road, providing comfort and significant energy savings. The Luna system also makes intelligent decisions based on input from sensors.
