News - Piper @ CES 2015

My first introduction to Piper was at last year’s CES, this year they were back again with an updated night vision version of their innovative Z-Wave home automation controller/camera. The Piper NV (for night vision) also upgrades the ARM processor (allowing for more imaging processing options), sensor (to 3.4MP), and ups the field of view to 180 degrees. Naturally the price also receives a bump to $249. Best part is that you won’t have to wait too long if you want to grab one up; the expected ship date is January 21st.

News - SiliconDust @ CES 2015

SiliconDust didn’t have any new products to show in their suite this year, but we did get a chance to look at the new packaging which is important as they make a bigger push into retail, especially in Europe. We did get a chance to discuss some of the products that should have launched, but unfortunately were delayed due to merger/acquisitions in the silicon industry (e.g. Freescale bought one of their suppliers). Fortunately this only translated into delays, both the six tuner CableCARD and the dual DVB-T2 are still on the road map – with the later expected to ship very soon (Huzzah!). SiliconDust also has an eight DVB-S tuner in the works, which will be a global device with hundreds of channels available from around the world.

News - NETGEAR @ CES 2015

NETGEAR had a lot to show at CES this year besides routers, and we ended up skipping those because with the rapid release schedule (AC3200 & AC2400 launched earlier) there wasn’t anything new. That’s not to say that they’ve been standing still in the networking space with several new product to enable more bandwidth around the house.

The biggest news from Vera Control is that we finally have a controller with the new Series 500 Z-Wave+ SoC. In fact, there will eventually be three different models; VeraEdge, VeraPlus, and VeraSecure, with VeraEdge available now and the other two expected to ship early summer.

News - Intel @ CES 2015

Intel is moving hard into small, low power devices and that was evident in what they were showing at CES this year. We started out with tablets, but the really interesting stuff started when the new Broadwell NUC came out.
