A powerful interconnection platform
The cloud-based smart home solution enables faster smart hardware development and shorter production launch cycles for Eco-partners, and
allows their products to connect to other hardware in the HiLink ecosystem to improve user experience.
Open and co-built
The SDK and HUAWEI developer community provide developers with a full range of searches and one-stop development services, and assists them from the open environment building to conducting integration and testing.
Easy to use
Automatically connects detected HiLink devices to the home network, and syncs modified router passwords. All smart hardware is managed by the Smart Home app.
Secure and reliable
Provides end-to-end smart hardware access management, data transfer security solutions, and reliable smart home cloud services with differentiated chip-level security capabilities.
Low cost
The HiLink SDK occupies a small memory resource (<10KB), which is only one-thousandth the size of a high-definition photo. This effectively reduces the cost for hardware device manufacturers.

Success cases
The release of partnering products on HUAWEI online stores, where users can purchase HiLink devices through the Smart Home app, has quickly driven the sales of popular products (such as the ECOVACS cleaning robot) into short supply. With the abundance of products available, services to users are becoming more humanized and personalized, demonstrating the strong synergy among products.
OPPLE's smart home lighting solution, enabled by HUAWEI HiLink, bypasses the shackles of the wall, and along with other peripheral devices, creates a warmer and happier atmosphere for families.
With HUAWEI HiLink smart home solutions, HUAWEI's real estate partners are able to provide users with a new comfortable smart home experience.
