M2M Solution’s HomeBox drives your home into the 21st century

M2M Solution, a specialist in the integration of machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, will demonstrate its HomeBox gateway for the consumer market at Mobile World Congress, to be held in Barcelona from 15 to 18 February 2010. The HomeBox system incorporates accessories for both security and home automation.
Olivier Courtade, CEO of M2M Solution, says, “We are proud to announce our new MyHome solution and our HomeBox. More than just a launch, this is a genuine innovation brought to the market. Our new solution has already been tested by several telecoms operators, who should soon be offering new services to their customers in terms of home security, automation and multimedia.”

M2M Solution’s HomeBox is a complete Plug-and-Play home gateway that is interconnected to a wide range of accessories in respect of both security (camera, door/window opening sensor, motion sensor, remote control or smoke detector) and domotics (power plug relay, window shutter control and heating control). M2M Solution will soon add energy-management accessories (monitoring of electricity, water and gas usage) to its HomeBox, which has been developed over many years of R&D.

M2M Solution uses a white-label approach to supply all of the elements required to bring the HomeBox to the marketplace, including hardware, SIM card, server infrastructure, interactive voice response, mobile and web applications, back and front Office HMI, and billing system. The introduction of HomeBox will enable mobile network and service operators to benefit from new sources of revenue. It is also a strategic solution for a market that is constantly looking for new products and services able to provide differentiation and to drive growth.

A first commercial launch of the HomeBox has already been planned by Myxyty, the French specialist in smart home systems, which will offer this new solution as a complement to its leading MyAlert range of home-security solutions.

M2M Solution’s HomeBox provides a range of benefits, including a real-time alert system (SMS, MMS, email, voice call or fax); the ability to control the system from any mobile phone, PC or Mac; and, also, visualisation of the home via a camera integrated into the HomeBox or additional cameras. Besides, M2M Solution’s HomeBox ensures uninterrupted service operation in case of power outage or internet connection failure – the HomeBox features a back-up battery as well as a back-up GSM-GPRS connection.

During Mobile World Congress, M2M Solution will carry out a series of demonstrations on the booth of its partner, Texas Instruments (Stand 8A84).

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
