Homey - Everything at home connected


      Homey brings your home to life. It can talk to many devices, and you can talk to Homey. Say what you want, when you want it, and Homey takes care of it. Homey learns your ways and predicts which things to do, to make you happy. Whether you’re a businessman, student, grandparent or housewife, Homey is there for you when you need it. We want to get technology out of the way so you can focus on what matters most to you, and Homey takes care of the rest.

      A few things Homey can do… Homey combines your devices and the internet, allowing for smart scenarios: When you get home, your lights fade on, your thermostat is already set to a comfortable level and your favorite music is streamed to your receiver.
 
      When you need to wake up, the curtains or blinds are opening, your morning tune is playing on your stereo while the weather for today and your e-mails are being read to you. The smell of fresh and automatically made coffee gets you out of bed.
 
      When you’re in the supermarket, you decide it’s going to be pizza tonight. You tell the Homey app to pre-heat your oven by switching it on. If you have a smart fridge, your grocery shopping list is sent to you. When you want to watch a movie, the blinds close, your lights dim, your music fades out, the TV is set to the correct channel and your media center plays the movie.
 
      When you leave your house, Homey tells you it’s going to rain soon, and reminds you to take an umbrella. When you're the last person to leave the house, Homey turns down the heat and switches all your lights and devices off to save energy. Finally, Homey makes sure that your front door is really locked.
 
      When you get a call, your music pauses while the call is routed via Bluetooth from your phone and sent to the speakers closest to where you currently are.

UPDATE: Stretch goals
      Since we have reached our goal this fast, there is room open for many more. We have a lot ideas for Homey, but limited time to develop. With more funding, we can invite more members to the team, which can develop more functionality!

      It just works When you plug it in, Homey already works with most of your devices, and support for many more will come. Next to home appliances, it connects to your entertainment systems and online accounts. Homey is the living hub that intelligently connects everything in your life.

Science!
      While this sounds like magic, it’s actually science: Homey includes 7 wireless modules that work on various frequencies and protocols, all integrated together in an intelligent and easy-to-use device with state-of-the-art speech recognition. And to make sure we don’t miss out on your older devices and television sets, we’ve added an Infrared Power-LED. Yes, you may throw away all your remotes now.

      There’s an app for that Because there are a lot of devices used out there, and new ones being released every day, Homey features an app store, so you can continuously get freshly made apps by fellow enthusiasts and device brands. All apps are checked, so you don’t have to worry about privacy and safety.

      Developers and hobbyists can also publish directly to the Labs section, where you can freely share your own homebrew projects. Homey already works with the most basic devices at home, such as your older, infrared-controlled TV set. Let Homey connect to your mail, calendar en weather service and your already have quite the smart assistant, which only gets smarter and smarter as you purchase more (wireless) devices!

      When you use Homey for the first time, it already knows how to talk with most of your devices. In the event that you own a device that Homey isn't yet familiar with, like your older television, you can easily learn Homey how to talk to it using your remote. As a bonus, these device codes are then shared to other Homey owners, so that everyone that owns the same device can profit instantly.

Multilanguage
      Because not everyone is a native English speaker, Homey is multi-language. At first we support English, Dutch, German, Spanish and French, and more languages will be added later on, prioritized by our backer's locations.
