Dune HD presents the world’s first Hybrid 4K Media Player with integrated Z-Wave Plus technology.
„Dune HD“, an established provider of multimedia solutions and high quality media player presents the world’s first 4K media player & set top box with Z-Wave smart home integration. The dvice is a combination of:
- Media player & set top box – a Sigma Designs SMP8758 media processor ensures smooth playback of 4K Full-HD videos, including HEVC video codec support, 10-bit color encoding, 3D video, high-end audio formats with high resolution 24-bit / 192 KHz technology, IPTV and VOD content from various sources such as USB flash drives, SATA harddrives, LAN and internet streaming,
- The Z-Wave smart home controller function based on Sigma Designs ZM5304 Z-Wave module and the Z-Wave controller software “Z-Way” by Z-Wave.Me.
The software supports a wide range of Z-Wave devices such as radiator thermostats, lights, switches, remote controls, sirens and many more. The devices can be controlled via web interface or smartphone/tablet app. Moreover Z-Way offers a lot of Z-Wave configuration and evaluation opportunities as well as the possibility to create automations and scenes. Furthermore users can access the Z-Way integrated app store where they can download some ready-to-use automation apps (read more about the Z-Wave app store).
Thanks to Z-Wave integration users of Dune’s 4K media player are only one step away from an intelligent automated home as of now. The Z-Wave chip is already built-in onboard. Thus there is no USB dongle or similar device needed. The only things the user has to add are Z-Wave capable devices for its own four walls. These devices can be connected to the Dune 4K player and can be controlled via scenes, automations and smartphone apps.
