CONNECTIVITY

Secure and managed communication

Internet. The SMARTLINK automation gateway resides on a global IOT platform, hosted on world class server infrastructure for redundancy, to maintain your mobile connection to your property. Each device is shipped with an onboard sim card that creates a Virtual Private Network with AES 128 bit encryption between your phone and your property for your security. This ensures all communication is managed and connectivity is maintained without the need for you to do anything.

Z-Wave. It’s like wifi for machines. It is the wireless language your connected devices talk to each other and your Smartlink gateway. All AES 128 bit encrypted for your security. Each device becomes a repeater node within your property and serves as a communication exchange for other devices, ensuring the fastest and most reliable communication at all times.

VIDEO

Stay in touch with rule-based video notification

Internet Access
The SMARTLINK automation service is a stand alone and self – contained solution at a fixed monthly fee. For cameras, you require internet access with a minimum of 2Mbps upload speed for reliable video communication. Cameras can be connected by wifi or ethernet cable to your internet router.

IP Cameras
For security reasons and with the stability of your video feed in mind, we are currently only able to connect our own range of SMARTLINK IP cameras, where we have the ability to manage its compatibility. Click here for more info.

We are however busy testing a new service where we will be able to connect your existing ONVIF compliant IP cameras through our platform with the aid of a video server embedded in any of our IP cameras. This means that you only need to buy one SMARTLINK camera to act as a video server for up to 15 of your own IP cameras. This solution should be commercially available within the next 3 months.

AUTOMATION

You create the rules

Our range of automation gateways speak Z-wave. The Z-Wave protocol is an interoperable, wireless,  RF-based communications technology designed specifically for control, monitoring and status reading applications in residential and light commercial environments.

It is wireless and enables smart functionality to your existing home devices. It does not require invasive cabling or replacement of any existing devices.
