Skyworks Ramps Connectivity Solutions for Nest Video Doorbells

11 July 2018

Skyworks Solutions Inc., a developer of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, has announced that Nest, a division of Google (Alphabet), is leveraging several of its wireless connectivity products across their recently launched video doorbells.

The Nest Hello, which offers continuous, 24/7 recording capability and HD video, incorporates Skyworks' industry leading portfolio to seamlessly connect users and other network devices, as well as support extended ranges and long battery life for smart home applications. In particular, Skyworks' solutions enable the video doorbell to easily modulate among Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Thread communication protocols, while ensuring reliable data transfer at longer distances through obstacles such as walls and doors.

"Skyworks' advanced wireless engines are supporting the world's leading home automation providers," said Carlos Bori, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Skyworks. "Our highly integrated solutions deliver outstanding performance and a six-fold reduction in space requirements versus discrete implementations. Skyworks is delighted to bring breakthrough architectures to the increasingly connected world and expand our reach across rapidly emerging smart home security systems."

Technavio's June 2018 market research report estimates that the smart doorbell market will register a compounded annual growth rate of almost 70 percent through 2022, citing growing interest in home automation as one of the major driving factors. Home automation enables several devices to be interconnected in the home via the integration of numerous wireless communication technologies. According to Statista, the overall global revenue of the smart home security market alone is estimated to reach $18 billion in 2020.
