Connect new things, instantly!

Yanzi connects things automatically and instantly. The only user interaction needed is one “accept” click in the Yanzi App, and the devices are up and running in minutes. No WPA keys or pushbutton needed—this is true Plug & Play!

Hello, we are your things!

All the connected things will automatically update you on their latest status, warn, and remind you. Your things are always connected and you can access them from anywhere.

Frost Alarm

Keep track of temperature changes. You can set your own temperature limits and receive notifications when these are exceeded. PDF reports can be sent to you regularly for administrative use.

Control Lights

Control your lights directly from the app. You can certainly turn on/off an individual light with your phone, but more importantly, your lights may be controlled by a motion detector or by the timer connected to the Internet clock. You can also dim your lights or control multiple lights with one click.

View images and video

With a camera you can view live and recorded video together with high-resolution images. Easily find the recorded sequence when something actually occurred. Combine with a motion detector and receive a notification showing what just happened.


See and compare usage of energy at your location or for specific things. It is possible to view consumption in watts and kWh as well as actual cost. PDF reports can be sent to you regularly for administrative use.

Control Heating

Remotely control the heating systems with the Smartplug and know how much energy it uses. With the Yanzi thermometer, temperature may be automatically controlled.

Detect Motion

Place a wireless motion detector anywhere you need and get notified when there is movement. The motion detector feature can be used in combination with the Smartplug to control the lights and for a burglar alarm or simply just to detect presence.

Seamless & automated security

Would you like me to turn on the alarm?

With an invisible fence, Yanzi can automatically detect if a person (phone) has left the building and then ask if the user wants the alarm to be armed. In addition, when the user is about to enter the building, Yanzi will automatically ask if the alarm should be disarmed.

Advanced Video – Live & Recorded

Yanzi features live and recorded video from your connected cameras for the user to enjoy and share in multiple devices.


Multiple Sites & Multiple Users

Yanzi makes it possible for a user to have multiple locations with only one single login. Users can also invite friends and family to a location.
