Starting with the SmartHome Gateway, it acts as the brains of whole system. It supports Zigbee, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Miracast function is also on board so you can beam your phone’s content onto a screen.
ASUS SmartHome Open/Close Sensor
Looking like 2 capsuls, the open/close sensors can be attached to doors and windows. You can pair it with the siren module to create an alert.
ASUS SmartHome Motion Sensor
The motion sensor detects motion from 8 metres. Pair it with the SmartHome Meter Plug and you can have the house lights turn on when you walk in.

Access your lock with a password, NFC, the SmartHome app or a traditional key.
It comes with an anti-tamper design which alerts you if anyone tries to mess with the lock.
