The home automation market today is quite small compared to the IoT market. And this is due to problems that the users are experiencing with smart home systems today, such as the high cost, the complicated and messy installation, the technology fragmentation, the difficult way to use and configure the system and so many more. Also the users think that smart home devices do not apply to real everyday needs.

Despite these problems the home automation market has an AGR of 30.3%.

The answer should be a system easy to use, easy to install, easy to expand, to configure and to update.

This could create a mass implementation of smart home systems to new constructions.

One of the main concerns for the construction companies today is the cost of money and the access to funding. So, usually everyone is trying to create added value for the client in order to sell before the competition. Smaller sales cycles mean less paid interest and biggest profits.

Also this could trigger a result of higher revenues because the same funding can be used for more construction sites.

This is a challenge that could be addressed with a system that provides added benefits. A system so smart but so easy to use at the same time, either the user can see, walk or is familiar with technology in general.

This is the housemate smart home package. A complete, inexpensive, almost plug-and-play smart home system in a box that can be installed in a couple of hours and then the user simply talks to his house and his commands are executed. A system that can be controlled from a distance and also provides all smart home system features plus any kind of information (like the weather, news, calendar events etc.), voice activated alarm, wake up call, music, a camera for real time interaction and so many more.
