Started in 2008: Thomas Moser and Martin Oeller liked the idea of having a home in which the majority of functions like safety, energy efficiency and comfort could all be centrally controlled. After all, this was at a time where cars could already parallel park themselves and robotic lawnmowers could take care of the gardening. So why were homes so far behind?
Both Martin and Thomas wanted intelligent and convenient automation in their own homes. They scoured the market for something that would meet their needs but found what was on offer to be impractical, complicated and expensive.
