Deep expertise in every facet of home and building automation applications

Whether you’re developing a smart-home appliance or a system to control all of the functions in a commercial building, you need a partner who understands the associated standards, security aspects and data models. With Avnet, you have access to a team of experts who not only understand the standards, we actually helped create them.

We know the ins and outs of standards found in home and building automation, including EnOcean, KNX®, Thread, LonWorks and BACnet just to name a few. In addition our team has expertise with using multiple connectivity standards across your application such as Bluetooth™\BLE and Wi-Fi™.

We’ll guide you to the right standard to follow for your specific application. And with our global reach, we can guide you through the standards you’ll need to follow in markets you are looking to export to. From there, we work with you to create a standards-based design.

Our knowledge also extends into security. We’ll explain the different options for encryption, along with the use of public or private keys and guide you to the best choice for you. The same holds true for wired or wireless connectivity. We’ll find the right fit for your application and help you design it into your device or system.

Design tools and services

As you move into design, Avnet offers reference designs to help you refine your software code and validate your system components. These tools are specific to the standards and features you’re likely to implement in your design.

Create a home and building automation solution with Avnet

We also provide the technology options needed to build your application, enabling you to design a board with components such as processors, analog and interconnect. If you prefer embedded system building blocks, we offer boards, wireless and add-on modules in different form factors and performance options. If your focus is on developing Intellectual Property (IP) and you need a hardware appliance to run your code, we provide a variety of servers or integrated systems to meet your needs.

Avnet is ready to help you get your home and building automation solution off the ground and into the market. To begin the journey, contact your local Avnet specialist or complete this form and we’ll respond right away.
