TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a leading provider of advanced antenna technologies used to enable high performance wireless networking across a broad range of devices and markets, including connected home, enterprise, automotive, and Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it has been selected by home security specialists, Glate, to deliver the antenna technology for its DefenDoor Wi-Fi doorbell and burglar alarm system. Airgain has designed and deployed a miniaturized embedded dual-band Wi-Fi antenna to meet DefenDoor’s connectivity needs for the smart home environment.
The Airgain antenna technology developed for Glate has been designed to meet demanding radio frequency specifications, and to be water immersion compliant and optimized for the confined environment of DefenDoor. This latest Profile Contour Embedded deployment from Airgain builds on patented antenna technology to deliver high performance wireless connectivity through its Flexible Printed Circuit Board (FPC) embedded antenna design and integration innovation.
Available in early 2019, the DefenDoor is a wireless solution powered by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Beacon technology, and is powered through the use of AA batteries. It attaches to the front door, and when the motion detector senses movement, the camera turns on and takes a picture of the visitor, which is then sent to the user’s smartphone. Airgain’s antenna technology delivers high performance connectivity so the DefenDoor can be paired with up to five sensors, all within 30 feet of the device.
Jerry Lin, Co-Founder of Glate, said: “With their proven antenna design expertise, Airgain is the ideal solution for Glate. The high performance connectivity of Airgain’s technology is perfect for the DefenDoor, despite the multiple radio frequencies we are having to contend with in and around the home. The miniaturized design of the antenna means we have not had to make any compromises on the DefenDoor aesthetically.”
Jacob Suen, Senior Vice President of Airgain, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Glate in the design and creation of the innovative DefenDoor security device. Through leveraging Airgain’s antenna design expertise, Glate is able to help ensure optimal RF connectivity and performance. As the demand for the best connectivity in the home grows, Airgain is enabling the high performance wireless connectivity required as we connect the unconnected.”
Airgain will be attending Computex 2018, held June 5-9 in Taipei, Taiwan. Airgain will be demonstrating its latest embedded antenna technology and hosting meetings at the Grand Hyatt Taipei. Contact Airgain at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a meeting.
