Homy a TV-Box with DTT/SAT receivers and home automation controls

In the picture of the TV-Box Android as we know we have many similar products, today I want to present a very interesting innovative concept called Homy Player. 

This device developed by the brand SmartHomy Electronics  based in San Jose (California) offers unique options as we will see both multimedia and home security and home automation.

The first differentiating point of Homy Player see it at first sight and is its exterior design, with very contained measures 20 x 11 x 6 cm have an anodized aluminum base color copper hand - brushed, above this base we have a grid ventilation and the plastic casing covering the TV-Box.

As a remote control next to Homy Player have a remote control Bluetooth remote  with buttons to simulate a gamepad which also includes motion sensors to control compatible games with them, we also have a microphone so we can give orders or initiate searches of content. This control has backlit keyboard  to have more visibility in dark environments such as our living room when playing a movie.

As for hardware specifications in the Homy Player have a SoC  AMLogic S905-H Revision C  Cortex-A53 64bit and GPU MALI-450mp5, mounts 2GB of Ram and a generous storage of 32GB . On the back we can find the AC connector, HDMI 2.0 compatible CEC output, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 USB 2.0 connectors. In this same area have hybrid connectors receiver  DVB-S2 (Satellite), DVB-C / T / T2 (Cable / Terrestrial) or  ATSC (North America, South Korea) to view content in broadcasts.

As for the system within Home Player we have  Android TV   specifically version 7.0 Android - based Nougat. This allows us to have direct access to applications adapted to the TV and use from remote, we find our favorite app like Netflix, YouTube or Spotify. This device has DRM certificates for all types of streaming services and permission to Netflix to play content in HD quality , could even access streaming  4k @ 60 FPS  in the future.

The most striking aspect of Home Player is the ability to manage smart devices Z-Wave Smart Homy, with which you can monitor from your mobile or tablet your IP cameras, sensors, sockets, thermostats. We can also manage these systems directly from our TV screen with an integrated application that allows you at any time access all your home automation peripherals while you're watching or playing content on your device. To control devices have a separate IR emitter that can be mounted where needed.

Undoubtedly  Home Player is a unique and very interesting device because it integrates in a single platform our security systems, TV, game console and home automation system.

From December 1 campaign financing will start Indiegogo where you can buy this on Home Player for a promotional price of $ 199 . You can choose the delivery system to buy.
