Living is a smart hub designed for my former company
AR-Smart. Living was the connection with all the smart home
devices that supported Z-wave, wifi or bluetooth.
● Intel edison board chosen over more popular boards like raspberry, because it fitted better into a final product.
● Zwave and zigbee tested, but Zwave chosen because of the large number of compatible products
● Before choosing technology, couple of board were made to test Intel edison (left), and zigbee and wifi module (right)
Designed in Altium. 3d Views helped selecting and fitting the enclosures. Acrylic with the shape of the PCB was cutted with laser before the manufacturing to testin sample enclosure.
