“We have strict launching policies per country, in order for us to be able to guarantee availability, information and compatibility”, says Stefan Witkamp, commercial director of the company. “Because we launch the product per country, we can make sure that Homey also works well with devices that are popular in that particular country”, explains Emile Nijssen, creative director at Athom. In this context we are integrating, amongst others, the Hive Thermostat, Amazon Echo, LightWaveRF, Sartano and Nexa. “This way, we enable everyone to use Homey together with the devices you already have, know and like.”
Athom was founded at the beginning of 2014, by Emile Nijssen and Stefan Witkamp. In the meantime, Athom has grown into a team of 15 professionals that work on the development and realization of Homey. With Homey, the company wants to connect all in-house devices and makes them easy to operate for everyone.
In the Netherlands, Homey is available is several shops, amongst which Media Markt, iCentre and Ivizi, and online specialists such as ROBBshop and Domotica-shop. In the United Kingdom, Homey is sold through Vesternet, and Athom has found a partner in Amazon Launchpad.
