These devices offer superior quality, reliability, robust customer support, and most importantly, ongoing security updates giving customers peace of mind on the safety and privacy of their personal information.

The solution is made even easier to use with a smart living app developed by Ayla, which enables smart home device management with various partnered brands accessible from a single location and also enables the management of new and existing smart home devices. The solution is also compatible with the new Matter communication standard, ensuring support for a wide range of off-the-shelf smart home devices today and in the future.
