Primax Electronics Partners with Morse Micro to Launch Wi-Fi HaLow Smart Home Doorbell

New Buzz-HaLow Doorbell Elevates Home Security with Best-in-Class Features and Long-Range, Low-Power Connectivity

SYDNEY and TAIPEI, Sept. 19, 2023MWC Las Vegas 2023 – Primax Electronics Ltd. (TWSE: 4915) today announced their collaboration with Morse Micro, a fast-growing fabless semiconductor company focused on Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to deliver a smart home doorbell powered by Morse Micro’s MM6108 Wi-Fi HaLow SoC. The new Buzz-HaLow doorbell provides an innovative solution for modern home security systems supporting IEEE 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow, a leading long-range, low-power IoT connectivity protocol. Pioneering the fusion of cutting-edge wireless technology and elegant design, the new Buzz-HaLow doorbell is set to redefine the way homeowners interact with their environment and safeguard their loved ones.

The Primax Buzz-HaLow doorbell is designed to support a wide field of view (FOV) of up to 178-degrees, including both vertical and horizontal views. Equipped with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi HaLow connectivity, the new home security doorbell can deliver farther reach than traditional 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless protocols. The sub-GHz frequency range of Wi-Fi HaLow enables longer range wireless transmission (1 km and beyond) and superior penetration of physical barriers. With Wi-Fi HaLow technology’s ultra-low power consumption, the Buzz HaLow doorbell can sustain years of operation on battery power.

“Together with Primax, we’re elevating the smart home experience,” said Michael De Nil, co-founder and CEO at Morse Micro. “The Buzz-HaLow Doorbell is not just a product, but a testament to our partnership transforming home security and connectivity, seamlessly fusing innovation and design for today’s homeowners. Our collaboration builds on the excitement and momentum of Wi-Fi HaLow across the globe as we expand our portfolio and accelerate the use of our technology across a range of applications.”

“Primax’s ODM services provide clients with exceptional platforms to transform their smart doorbell concepts into reality,” said Joe Chu, the GM at Primax. “By leveraging Primax’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and expert engineering team along with Morse Micro’s Wi-Fi HaLow technology, clients can craft smart doorbells that seamlessly integrate with their brand’s identity and meet their specific functional requirements. From high camera quality to advanced motion detection algorithms, Primax perfects every detail to deliver top-tier performance and user experiences.”
