What if every device in your home had its own IP address? At CES, a joint demonstration from NXP and Belkin demonstrated a “smart home” network that allows control of light bulbs – each with its own IPv6 address – using a smartphone or tablet. The network features a WeMo device from Belkin that enables mobile devices using Wi-Fi to interact securely with smart home appliances using JenNet-IP – NXP's ultra-low-power wireless connectivity software based on 6LoWPAN and IEEE 802.15.4.

“We've released a series of tremendously popular smart lighting and smart home control videos on YouTube featuring JenNet-IP, and are often asked, ‘Where can I get the router?'” said Sean McGrath, general manager, smart home and energy product line, NXP Semiconductors. “At CES, you'll see a number of solutions, including an easy-to-use WeMo device from Belkin you can attach to your home router, enabling it to serve as a secure gateway between your smartphone and the Internet-enabled appliances in your network using JenNet-IP. We're very excited that Belkin, a world-class provider of connectivity solutions, is bringing JenNet-IP into its new WeMo Home Automation ecosystem.”
