Resideo's European evohome Smart Home Journey Gets Even Smarter Through Collaboration with Homey
Rolle, Switzerland, 25 January 2023 – Resideo Technologies Inc. (NYSE: REZI), a global provider of home comfort and security solutions, announced today that it is collaborating across Europe with Homey, a market leading, cutting-edge smart home platform, to offer Honeywell Home evohome users the ability to integrate the smart heat zoning device with other smart home products and services in their home.
The move is another milestone in evohome's smart home interoperability, which already includes compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Google Home and Samsung SmartThings.
The collaboration benefits both Resideo and Homey customers. Users of Resideo's Honeywell Home evohome smart zoning thermostat will now be able to simplify their smart home experience, while also increasing energy awareness, efficiency and creating custom Flows (automations). Homey users will be able to integrate a high-performing multi-zone heating and cooling controller into their smart home. Through this collaboration, Resideo’s Honeywell Home products are compatible with both the Homey cloud-based service as well as the Homey Pro hub.
The innovative integration features that make evohome and Homey a smart choice include:
- ✓ 24/7 control of your home comfort and more from wherever you are – via the all-in-one Homey mobile app.
- ✓ Makes your home heating more connected to what else is going on in the house – via an open platform that works with thousands of other smart products.
- ✓ All your smart home devices in one place. In addition, works with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri.
- ✓ Easy to customise to individual requirements – just a few steps to add your own devices and automation.
- ✓ A smart home comfort solution for the energy management conscious generation – the evohome is a universal zoning solution that includes heat pump compatibility. Users of reversible heat pumps can easily switch control between heating and cooling mode, keeping comfortably warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Aldo D'Ingeo, Business Development Manager EMEA for Resideo explains the importance of the collaboration: "Innovation is in our DNA and we already offer a wide of range of smart heating controls that can reduce gas consumption and save on heating bills. Therefore, collaborating with Homey to offer our customers a more connected smart home experience makes sense. Our European launch will initially focus on the Netherlands, as well other European markets where Homey is currently available."
Stefan Witkamp, Co-founder and Commercial Director at Athom, creators of Homey, adds: “Homey aims to create a better smart home by making smart devices work together in a great way. We’re pleased to add Resideo to our list of official, verified partners and include their terrific heating controls to the Homey experience, allowing our users to increase both comfort and energy-efficiency.”
