Whether it’s smart security, smart lighting, or other subsystems in smart homes, they all require a smart home gateway to achieve the ultimate results. So, how do we choose a smart home gateway? Let’s go and find out together.

How to choose a smart home gateway?

1. Stability and reaction speed

Because the gateway is equivalent to the “brain” of the smart home system, it directly determines the stability and response speed of other smart devices. In addition to its ability to reproduce and transmit signals stably and quickly, it also has strong anti-interference ability. For example, it will not be affected by the smart devices of neighbors.

2. Compatibility

Although “smart home” can make people feel convenient, its content is a bit complicated, related to various devices, systems and different manufacturers. If the compatibility is not good, then the user has to go to the unified brand, and may also need to give up buying some of the favorite smart home products. In addition to increasing costs, this is not conducive to users to build the ideal “smart family.”

3. Self-organizing network function

What is self-organizing network? To put it simply, all nodes present a mesh structure. Any node has a connection function. When a node fails, it does not affect the operation of the entire network. If the terminal wants to communicate with a terminal outside the coverage area, the intermediate node can act as a transmission medium, breaking the distance limit. In addition, the number of nodes that can be accommodated determines how many devices can access the network.

Want to stably control the smart home remotely, and want to make smart homes, residential areas, office buildings, factories and other large places to achieve intelligence, it is necessary to have a strong self-organizing network function. And what exactly is this function depends on what protocol the gateway uses. It is currently recognized that the ZigBee protocol is the strongest self-organizing network.

4. Security

What should the user do if the gateway is attacked? Just kidding, how can such an important protection work be thrown to the user, the manufacturer of the production gateway should build a strict protection system for the user. Although the gateway itself is a line of defense, if the hacker needs to break through many other firewalls before attacking the gateway, the security will be much improved. At the same time, the gateway encrypts all transmitted data to avoid being acquired by the outside world.

5. Technology upgrade

The most feared thing about buying electronic products is that the replacement is too fast. If you can upgrade your software by simply updating the software without changing the hardware, is it easier for users to accept it? However, such a gateway is rare, and there are not many smart home brands that can be used as promotional highlights.

The above is how to select the entire content of the smart home gateway. In fact, when various intelligent hardware products make people feel that smart life is within reach, the industry is fiercely engaged in the “gateway” and “entry” of smart homes. Perhaps it will affect the popularity of the entire smart home industry.
