EDMOND, Okla. — Petra Industries, the consumer technology authority and wholesale electronics distributor, is partnering with Fox & Summit to simplify the connected home.
Most smart home systems are designed to work with a hub. As the central core, the hub talks to all the peripherals like lights, sensors and so on, as well as relays information to the system’s controlling app. Fox & Summit has taken their products in a different direction.
Their components directly harness the power of a home’s internal Wi-Fi® system to create a hub-free ecosystem. This simplifies installation time and reduces cost. The company’s FS Home app and Cloud-based platform ensure an easy-to-scale-up, smart home system.
“When consumers invest in hardware for a connected home, they are also buying app-based software,” says Tate Morgan, Petra President. “So, the app and underlying Cloud structure need to be as robust as the hardware. Because of the care Fox & Summit has taken to develop both software and hardware, all parts work together seamlessly to create a sophisticated yet easy-to-use system. Our retail and e-tail partners looking for a lower price-point and a scalable smart home system will find Fox & Summit an excellent solution.”
Fox & Summit smart home products include light bulbs, indoor plugs, window and door sensors, control buttons and motion-triggered spotlights. Its FS Home app operates on many levels—from simple power or hours-of-operation settings to the creation of more complex schedules, groups, scenes and rules. Recognizing the demand for voice-activated systems, Fox & Summit products can also work with Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
