Bang & Olufsen launches BeoLink SmartHome at ISE 2016-- a cloud-based means to integrate B&O products with other home devices, including custom installation offerings from the likes of Crestron, Control4 and Savant.

BeoLink SmarthomeTo bring together audio and video products with home automation systems BeoLink SmartHome uses an IFTTT-enabled channel on the cloud. IFTTT (If This Than That) allows users to create simple conditional commands combining and programming products and services lacking a common home automation standard.

"IFTTT provides B&O customers with intelligent and flexible options for programming their homes and combining products and services that are not at the outset directly connected to one another," the company says. "An example could be 'when the sun rises, turn up the lights in the bedroom and start playing music from a pre-defined playlist on your BeoSound 35' or send a text message to 'turn off all your BeoLink products' to make sure the kids are studying and not watching TV."

Change and control of SmartHome settings comes through either BeoRemote or the BeoLink App. In addition a real-time Configuration Tool features hundreds of pre-installed drivers and a simple graphics interface for easy setup, modification and updates.
