A multitude of smart home products have been launched in recent years, and broadband operators have also regarded Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the home as an important market for expansion. For example, the TV set-top box is now not only a home router, it is a hub for various smart home devices, connecting surveillance cameras, video doorbells, home appliances, motion sensors in a smart home. Smart home devices bring convenience and entertainment, however being connected also leads to concerns on data security protection. In the center of the solution is software and cloud encryption technology, but it also requires cooperation with product manufacturers to provide suitable hardware security designs.

In 2020, ThroughTek launched Kalay platform 2.0, adopting a decentralized architecture with a comprehensive network security mechanism and at the same time, connecting videos devices with other networking devices. Over 80% of devices on the Kalay platform solution are video surveillance products and the transmission data packet involves personal privacy information, which are protected through the latest versions of HTTPS (AES128), HLS, and RTMP encrypted transmission protocols during the data transmission from devices to cloud or cloud to cloud phase, and storage phase.
The Smart Camera solution of “Home+ Smart Home” series by Homeplus Digital Broadband uses Kalay Platform 2.0’s latest SDK version, providing state-of-the-art video surveillance solutions for homes and small commercial spaces.
