D-Link has every intention of making sure your home remains smart – or at the very least, to get some “brains” along the way – with their range of devices and peripherals that will help to keep your home connected in one way or another. Well, one of their upcoming devices, known as the DCH-G020 connected home hub, looks set to arrive taking into consideration how it has recently made the jump through the FCC, and passed with flying colors, of course. Apart from that, this particular system is widely tipped to make an appearance some time next month at CES 2015, although various items such as its manuals and photos have been spotted on the FCC already. In addition, this particular hub will control Z-Wave (low-power RF) in addition to WiFi devices, which means that it will also play nice with third-party alarms, detectors and cameras atop current D-Link WiFi cameras and accessories.
For the first time, D-Link looks set to roll out a slew of new Z-Wave sensors, where the hub will function with WiFi and Z-Wave devices, where it will simultaneously hook up to a WiFi router as well. The entire shebang will be controlled through a smartphone, where you will be able to use your smartphone to add devices manually or through the scanning of QR codes.
One can then obtain the normal scheduling and notification options from there, although there has been no word on pricing or availability as at press time.
