Imagine… The lights turn on when you wake up… Your kettle switches on at 7am sharp… It’s telly night and your TV automatically plays your favourite show… And if that’s not enough, this connected box will even give you a weather report before you step outside… Imagine all this without lifting a finger. Too good to be true? Not if you’re a Homey user!

Create some magic with your Homey system
Magic thanks to Homey’s interface that’s easily programmed from your PC or Mac. You can also remotely control your home’s functions with Homey’s smartphone app (iOS and Android). Let your imagination run wild and push your home comfort limits.
Homey‘s not your average, run-of-the-mill system: it also works with voice commands! You can choose between English and Dutch or French via Amazon Echo and Google Home. Plus Homey can answer back – for example to confirm the time of your favourite TV show. Homey‘s more than a machine: it’s a personal assistant that uses state of the art intelligence.
Thanks to its elegant, spherical shape, the Homey home automation system can be placed wherever you want and takes less than an hour to configure. And to stay in control when you’re on the move, you can download the iOS and Android app to your mobile or tablet.
Homey’s only limit is your imagination.
