By definition, home automation systems are all connected devices, automated and remotely controlled in our homes in order to improve our comfort, our safety while controlling our energy expenditure. Recent studies estimate that between 2016 and 2022, our homes will be equipped with about fifty connected devices all connected to your Internet.
If this seems insignificant, the hidden face is much less and this is for your safety. Let’s take an example: Philips Hue bulbs are LED bulbs connected using a network called ZigBee that enables communication of small remote devices, it is the equivalent of Bluetooth but cheaper and simpler. A network that is already widely used for home automation devices. The installation uses a gateway connected to the Internet and the home network. Bulbs are remotely controlled through an app on iOS or Android smartphone, to change color or schedule them for a progressive light, all for a price of 200 € for 3 bulbs. It’s a bit pricey but nothing to compare to the vulnerability of this system that allows any hacker to easily infiltrate into your home network and dip your house in the dark as well as take control of your home security system or have a total access to all your internet history.
K3OPS, a French-Based company co-founded by Alexandre Despallieres and Xin Wei, identified the problematic and established different protocols of communication for preventive system against piracy and offers a wide variety of home automation devices from smart bulbs, thermostats, motion sensors, smoke and CO2 detectors, smart locks; Wi-Fi enabled cameras, embedded with an intelligent micro controller that takes into account the different factors such as meteorological to regulate the temperature and optimize your expenses. The two creators have already introduced products such as the Stick’N Charge, SQUID, K3-Case and definitely made the change in green technology introducing RF Energy Harvesting to replace all redox process in batteries look like for a safer world.All K3OPS products recycle electricity using the Surrounding RF Energy Harvesting system as a source to operate or to charge the batteries of all kind of electronic products in everyday life.
Alexandre Despallieres and Xin Wei started ‘Stick’N Charge’ development back in 2012, have since then, built an international team with solid backgrounds in such diverse disciplines as Mathematics, IT and physical chemistry. This next-generation K3OPS company that leads the green energy revolution is doing an amazing work to protect people health and also to preserve the environment, this is certainly their force and the key of their success.
