Nokia launches their Smart Home Solutions program which essentially covers solutions centered around the Nokia Home Control Center.
Nokia Home Control Center is a solution based on an open Linux based platform enabling the home owner to build a technology-neutral smart home that can be controlled with a mobile phone, using a unified user interface. Nokia Home Control Center supports the most common smart home technologies, including Z-Wave as well as enabling the incorporation for proprietary technologies. Thus, it allows third parties to develop their own solutions and services on top of the platform, expanding the system to support new services and smart home technologies.
In short this means that the Nokia Home Control Center supports “MyHome – Your Intelligent Home”.
