Smart Hub is a home remote control center. The smart hub is responsible for the communication of sensors with each other and the transfer of data collected from sensors to the cloud. The user connects via the Ferguson Smart application (for iOS and Android systems) to a cloud located in Poland, where the status of individual sensors is waiting for him, ready and constantly updated, and from where alarms are sent to the application in the event of a threat. Using the application, the user can send commands to the sensors, he can control his smart home, he can create scenes (user-defined settings of sensors and other devices depending e.g. on the time of day, so you can control heating or power supply for selected elements of the Ferguson Smart Home system).
Smart Hub supports both Wi-Fi and ZigBee standards. Using Wi-Fi, it communicates with the router and the cloud, using the ZigBee standard, it communicates with most sensors. The ZigBee standard is one of the more widely promoted mesh communication standards, which is distinguished by high stability, minimal power consumption (thanks to which the sensor can literally operate for years on one battery) and communication security.
Ferguson Smart Hub also plays an informative role: in the event of a threat (smoke, flooding, traffic, CO, etc.), the control panel activates the built-in alarm siren and gives strong light signals using the built-in LEDs.
