Having a cheap tablet in each room is a much easier way to do proper control, and is also wife-approved ;)


Agree, but I keep my hopes up. Also for Homey, I love the guys are trying.

its 2 years back and still not good at all, They will most likely fail, like a lot of kickstarters (sadly) do.
Its taking them way too long and if it works (like voice) the Homey is way to slow.

yes indeed , it is sadly to see the speed of progress is so slow, they can get help from a lot of people on their slack and fora but decided to keep everything very closed , i think they are afraid somebody will steel there idea's but that will kill them.

It took homeseer years to get a decent product. All other after that are still trying to get to the same level. This is the reason I didn't back this project. The thought of having a product which can do all in such a short time is Utopia. If it was easy others would already have done this in the past. Nice try but it will not work....

all the people disappointed in Homey are now ordering Neoo also a kickstarter domotica project. They can't wait for some user experiencev which is quite differnet from the promises made on websites made by kickstarter projects.

I backed both. Have to say, Homey was there faster. Neeo still no sign of delivery. I saw the remote work in Amsterdam so im not to worried. Just affraid they'll deliver in juli 2017 and are to late by then to have a good competitive position.

Re: Homey hits Retail Shops

Homey is now grown up but still a very young adult after a turbulent puberty.

it is the first Dutch kickstarter project hitting the retailshops, i real milestone for Athom b.v. , Dutch domotica and Holland.

Home isnt much mentioned in this domotica forum , is that because they have their own forum and chat rooms
