Jun 10, 2020 1:20 PM ET

DENVER, June 10, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Arrow Electronics is teaming with Silicon Labs, AWS and TE Connectivity to find and support new technology that will make homes more secure, better connected and easier to control. The companies have launched the Smart Home Innovation Contest to inspire inventive and original solutions to solve the challenges consumers face in their homes.

Inventors have the opportunity to win a share of $5,500 cash award by submitting a brief explaining their cutting-edge smart home idea and how the Silicon Labs wireless, TE sensors, and AWS IoT Core technologies will power their solution.

Smart home technology transforms lives, infusing a new level of convenience, control, security and efficiency in daily routines. This proliferation of smart home devices into everyday spaces has altered consumers' expectations for simplicity in user experience and hardware integration. Smart home technology also has improved access for those with reduced mobility, making it easier to perform everyday tasks in the home. 

Contest submissions will be judged based on their creativity, how well the potential solution is explained, the feasibility of the solution and integration of sensors, wireless connectivity, and the cloud. For more information about the contest requirements and to submit ideas, check out the contest page.

The deadline to apply is July 2, 2020.

ArrowPlus connects Arrow customers with a global network of engineering services professionals to help fill critical needs faster and more cost effectively. Through the contest, the division hopes to cultivate engineering talent and encourage the exploration of new ideas.
