CE distributor Capitol has announced that they will be adding FIBARO’s home automation systems to their growing catalog of connected home products. FIBARO, who manufacture residential IoT solutions, produce sensors, dimmers, wall plugs, remote controls and data gateways.
President and CFO of Capitol Curt Hayes stated that “FIBARO is a great example of a company that is clearly focused on using a powerful home network” and praised their products as “tailored to the needs of casual users” as well as bringing “security and controls together in one expandable package."
The company’s most notable product is the FIBARO system, a hub that makes use of the “Z-wave” wireless communications standard to connect with accessory products that provide home automation. This allows it to be compatible with a number of other controllers and solutions, such as URC, RTI and most recently Apple HomeKit. The hub can be accessed and controlled through smartphone, tablet or computer interfaces. Hayes is convinced that this decision will be beneficial, adding that FIBARO’s systems provide “an easy gateway for consumers to experience the many benefits of a connected home."
