Heat Map: 4 Top Smart Home Control System Startups
For our 4 top picks, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 4 interesting examples out of 424 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
Sentinel Electronics – Full-Stack Smart Home Control
Smart homes have a range of different sensors and control functions for electricity, lighting, entertainment, security, and more. Each of them requires a control system that maintains multiple devices for a user. Startups focus on developing single control systems to manage multiple smart home functions enabling the user to have an improved customer experience.
Australian startup Sentinel Electronics provides smart home and building automation services that include a central smart home control system solution. It gives users access to multiple functions such as temperature control, energy monitoring, video security, lighting control, and much more.
Smartzone – Smart Home Heating
Regulating the temperature in cold climates is essential to create a comfortable living environment, so heating systems become a vital component for any home. However, they also have drawbacks such as high power consumption and manual controls to make adjustments. Smart control systems have the potential to obviate these issues.
Irish startup Smartzone provides smart heating systems for home automation. Their solution creates up to three heating zones independently and remote-controlled, which allows for greater heating efficiency and reduced energy consumption. They also offer smart energy and automation services for businesses.
Deako – Smart Home Lighting
The lighting industry sees rapid development and innovations due to the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) in lighting systems that, in turn, allows for more advanced features. As the number of smart lights in homes increases, the task of managing them individually becomes more complex. Smart lighting control systems aim at creating a network or groups of lights with central management points or controllers.
The US-based startup Deako is a smart lighting control system provider for home automation. Their Bluetooth-enabled switches and dimmers allow for lighting features such as light grouping, scene-setting, and dimming, that work on existing wiring. They also provide connectivity modules to integrate smart home management systems like Google Assistant and Alexa to control home lighting.
Appartme – Smart Home Energy Management
Today’s smart home systems include many intelligent products and devices, all of which require constant monitoring. Many startups develop all-in-one smart control systems that focus on the control of devices rather than the conservation of energy.
Polish startup Appartme is a smart home device manufacturer for both control and energy management of home heating and lighting systems. Their Bluetooth-powered relays, sensors, plugs, and switches wirelessly transmit and receive data, which helps users to remotely control their smart devices and also create schedules based on the utilization of energy by heating or lighting devices.
