Avnet Booth #302 – first booth in front entrance

Exhibit Hours:
Tuesday May 16, 2017 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Wednesday May 17, 2017 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Thursday May 18, 2017 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The theme of our exhibit is “smart neighborhood”. We are building a “home” in our booth that demonstrates technology used inside (smart home) and outside (smart city) by featuring our key customer products and Avnet designed kits, showcasing how Avnet helps customers’ reach further. Featured in the booth are the following demos:

Customer demos


Ubicquia logo



UBICQUIA® offers municipalities, utilities and broadband service providers a cost effective and expandable platform for deploying Smart City services including advanced lighting control, environmental monitoring, citywide WiFi and more.


Rubicon Logo

Rubicon Global


Rubicon Global is taking action to change the future of waste. Our asset-light, technology-enabled platform connects customers with an independent network of haulers that bid on their business. We reduce waste and recycling costs for our customers, empower small businesses, and increase landfill diversion. Our goal is to create more sustainable solutions for businesses and the planet.


Twist Logo



Transforming traditional retail stores into smart, digitally connected environments, the Twsyt Smart Bag creates an "easier than internet experience" and gives your customers their time back. Consumers want efficient, valuable experiences online and off, that's tailored specifically to their needs, with the brands they love. The Smart Bag connects online and offline profiles to enable the creation of a personalized in store experience.

Knowing what's in a customer's cart as they shop gives retailers the opportunity to collect new sources of data giving you deeper insight to the shopper's buying patterns, behavior and journey. Deploying Twyst technology allows the anonymous tracking of shoppers as they move through the store, capturing consumer behavior via data and analytics that empowers the retailer to respond dynamically to constantly changing customer behavior.


Owlet Logo



Peace of mind in parenting is closer than you think. The Smart Sock 2 uses pulse oximetry to measure your infant's heart rate and oxygen levels while they sleep. This information is communicated to your phone via a base station that is designed to notify you with lights and sounds if something doesn't appear to be just right with your baby. Using our app, you can view your baby's heart rate and oxygen levels in real-time


Avnet demos


Avnet BCM IOT Starter Kit

Wi-Fi Connected (AWS IoT) Amazon Alexa Home-Automation Demo


Wi-Fi Connected (AWS IoT) Amazon Alexa Home-Automation is demonstrated using a voice-based user interface together with multiple output display options, for implementation of a home automation system. Sensor monitoring, event triggering and on/off control of household appliances is shown in response to voice initiated instructions. Voice I/O and sensor measurements are processed for local display as well as being forwarded to Amazon Web Services based cloud services, for triggering of additional output actions and appropriate voice responses.

LTE Connected Home Security Camera Demo


Like many other electronic devices, today’s home security cameras are far superior to their ancestors. When tied to the cloud, they can send alerts to your phone when they spot suspicious activity at your front door.  But not all security cameras are smart enough or secure enough to keep you and your family safe from harm.  Avnet has put together a demo of a security system camera which transmits it's data over LTE network rather than relying upon home WiFi for internet connectivity.  Combined with the flexibility of the Raspberry Pi development platform, the AT&T LTE IoT Add-on Kit from Avnet places security and wireless capability within reach of any system designer.


AT&T and Raspberry Pi parts

Cloud Sense Home Automation Demo


This platform uses the Raspberry Pi Sense HAT and the AT&T LTE IoT Add-on Kit from Avnet for secured wireless access to the cloud where all of the application logic can be easily updated and sensor information analyzed for home activity and environmental data patterns. A series of bright multi-color LED indicators are used to reflect the status of the accelerometer/temperature/pressure/humidity sensors used in the Cloud Sense Home Automation demonstration.  This technology enables prototyping for the following Smart Home applications:

  • HVAC
  • Micro-Agriculture
  • Lawn Irrigation
  • Weather Monitoring
  • Residential Construction

Avnet AES ATT M18QWG SK G kitbox

LTE Connected Sense Platform for Micro-Agriculture Demo


All sorts of fruit and vegetables are pollinated by honey bees and this natural process is vitally important for nearly all food we eat.  The LTE Connected Sense Platform for Micro-Agriculture demonstrates how low-cost connected platforms can enable location tracking and remote health monitoring of bee hives that we depend upon to help grow our food supply.  The Avnet Global LTE IoT Starter Kit found in this demo provides a sensing platform that also connects to the cloud via LTE, enabling the design of IoT edge devices that can operate in over 200 countries around the world.  The integrated GPS feature and sensor expansion capability of this module makes an excellent fit for Smart Agriculture and Asset Tracking applications.


Avnet Visible Things

Visible Things™


Avnet’s Visible Things™ is an edge to enterprise IoT platform that connects smart devices with various sensor technologies into a central dashboard, providing access to leading technologies through a simplified user interface. Our dashboard makes sensor and controls data relevant by applying this technology to real world applications. Users can interact with electronic hardware, learn about the electronic components used in the design and connect with Avnet’s engineers for design assistance. Our platform enables gateways to gather and deliver data to the cloud, as well as use the mobile application to configure fixed gateways that can be purchased through Avnet.
