MALVERN, PA, June 13, 2013 — Zonoff, Inc., creators of the Zonoff Connected Home Platform, today announced the availability of their Open Device Software Development Kit for qualified partners who are currently (or will soon be) manufacturing connected devices. The new SDK enables device OEMs to take advantage of rapidly developing innovation within the “Internet of Things” space, in order to deliver compelling connected home solutions to consumers.

Whether they are manufacturer-specific wireless protocols, differentiated devices features on open protocols, or proprietary interfaces for IP connected devices, all manufactures can now bring value to the consumer experience in a way that best suits their business model and their consumers.

Zonoff’s developer platform is a key initiative in the company’s mission to become the common platform that enables all wireless standards to communicate with each other. Those brands that leverage the Open Device SDK will enable a seamless consumer experience that combines Zonoff’s best-in-class software platform with a brand consistent user interface.

“The Internet of Things has already reached the mass market, as consumers understand and covet the wide range of innovative solutions available to automate the home,” said Mike Harris, Zonoff CEO. “Whether consumers are looking for trusted brands to deliver high quality and robust solutions or innovative new participants, our Open Device SDK enables brands to leverage their current investments and technology to make the Internet of Things come alive in the home.”

Zonoff’s Open Device Software Development Kit provides a powerful yet simple way for retailers, service providers, device manufacturers, and others to integrate with an ecosystem of over 1,000 connected devices. The SDK provides device manufacturers with access to the software tools needed to integrate their differentiated technology directly into Zonoff’s Connected Home Platform, while still participating in the customer experience and maintaining the security of their own intellectual capital.

Common Design Pitfalls When Designing With Hall 2D Sensors And How To Avoid Them

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

This article discusses three widespread application issues in industrial and automotive end equipment – rotary encoding, in-plane magnetic sensing, and safety-critical – that can be solved more efficiently using devices with new features and higher performance. We will discuss in which end products these applications can be found and also provide a comparison with our traditional digital Hall-effect sensors showing how the new releases complement our existing portfolio.
