YoLink solutions offer long range, low power and fail-safe connectivity for a growing product line of smart home and community applications
CAMARILLO, Calif., Aug. 26, 2020 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that YoSmart, a high-tech enterprise company focused on smart home and life solutions, has increased registered users and sales by more than 50 percent every month since its November 2019 product release. YoSmart integrates Semtech’s LoRa® devices into its “YoLink” line of Internet of Things (IoT) consumer products for the home.
“Our mission is to help make home life simple for everyone. Semtech’s LoRa devices have allowed us to make innovative and cost-effective products to successfully achieve this goal,” said John Xu, Chief Executive Officer at YoSmart. “Leveraging Semtech’s LoRa technology for our solutions allows us to easily deliver coverage to large houses and backyard applications using a single YoLink Hub. Also, Semtech’s technology can penetrate dense building materials, such as thick concrete walls, metal mailboxes or refrigerators found in many of our customers’ dwellings.”
YoSmart’s portfolio of 20 smart home and community products sold on Amazon and other retail outlets includes a smart leak system, Amazon’s highly-rated and top-selling water leak detector device, smart temperature/humidity sensor, smart door sensor, smart alarm, and a comprehensive smart home starter kit. The family of YoLink solutions enable the unique capability for the devices to communicate with each other offline. With this functionality, downstream devices can reauthenticate and communicate using messages and remote controllers even when disconnected from the YoLink Hub. The dual mode (YoLink + LoRaWAN® protocol) proprietary feature is critical for smart home application deployments during power outages or Wi-Fi service disruption. The YoLink Hub works as transparent connection between sensors and the Cloud, so users can set up automation of the smart sensors between the home, office and other locations throughout a community.
“The array of LoRa-based YoLink smart home automation products are well suited for do-it-yourself projects due to their ease of installation, non-complicated sensor provisioning and the ability for repeat customers to expand their smart home systems over time,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT Product Marketing for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “YoSmart and Semtech have successfully introduced enhanced consumer solutions in the expanding global smart home device market that overcome previous challenges associated with connectivity and interoperability.”
