Today we have for sale a new version of the TV-Box Vosen V1 this time compatible with a USB adapter Z-Wave included that allows us to use it as a control center for home automation, also has an IR blaster to control devices with compatible home devices such as TV, air conditioning, lights or smart plugs among others. A model that we had previously seen in other stores but did not clearly commented what functions were possible with it.
SoC, RAM and storage
This model Vosen V1 includes the Amlogic S905X2 SoC, a Quad Core chip that reaches up to 1.8GHz and integrates a GPU Mali-G31 MP2 quite more powerful than the classic Mali-450 and that takes for video playback a VPU TruLife Gen8 with specific hardware for coding and decoding. We have 2 GB of LPDDR4 RAM memory and 16 GB of eMMc storage memory that can be extended from the microSD card reader that includes this box in one of the sides of its plastic box.
The TV-Box Vosen V1 includes Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity. The connectors included in the plastic box are few, just a USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, analog audio and video output port, a 10/100 Ethernet connector and HDMI 2.0 video output. The installed system is Android 9 Pie in its classic version and we have as standard among the accessories IR remote control that includes some keys to clone other controls.
In addition to the IR Blaster function this device is compatible with a USB Z-Wave adapter that allows us through the SURE app on our mobile to connect with compatible devices, we just have to follow the steps of configuration of the app. To connect remotely we need to link the adapter with our local Wifi network and have the system turned on.
