The Awards program is an annual competition that honors outstanding design and engineering in the field of consumer technologies, with each application being evaluated by a panel of highly respected experts, including consumer technology designers, engineers and members of the media, based on criteria such as engineering qualities, global impact, and smart energy sustainability. Honorees of the Innovation Awards would be featured in the CTA’s flagship magazine – It Is Innovation (i3), a publication with a reader base of over 58,000 people. Additionally, Honorees of the Awards have the opportunity to showcase their award-winning product at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, an event which attracts over 4,400 companies worldwide. To receive such an award is a testament to a firm’s capabilities in product design and technological innovation.
Having undergone a rigorous selection process against other applicants, Computime’s Wireless Gateway Thermostat stood out from the crowd as it represents the world’s first smart thermostat gateway that integrated thermostat and gateway function with home Internet of Things (“IoT”) console and ZigBee gateway. With its IoT cloud connectivity along with the built-in Alexa Voice Service that enables users with a simple and instant control over all home IoT devices, the thermostat is able to offer total home IoT solutions with intelligent monitoring and control, all under the smart, modern, energy efficient design.
Dr. King Owyang, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Computime, commented, “It is Computime’s great honor to receive such recognition from the jury, and we are grateful to the CTA for acknowledging our continuous drive and contributions in consumer technologies. Our winning product, Wireless Gateway Thermostat, is a further proof of our capability in offering total IoT solutions, which integrates Zigbee, thermostat, voice control, IoT Home, smart console control and energy saving elements into one. Meanwhile, its smart and one-touch control, together with the modern metallic design and private data security, also offers great convenience and comfort to users. As technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence and 5G become increasingly prevailing, we believe consumer technology would be the next blue ocean market. Looking forward, we will continue our efforts in R&D, and will look to bring new, integrated and cost-efficient solutions to users.”
