MyOctopus is developing a revolutionary new kind of home-automation solution: beyond smart home-hubs - a connected, responsive, intelligent home multi-tool that will completely disrupt the smart home industry. It marks a paradigm shift in home-automation design - an intelligent, self-learning home, connected, flexible, more springboard than platform; jetting our users intelligently into the connected, converging IoT world; elegantly, easily, safely.

The working prototype will be available to view at WebSummit 2015, Ireland's biggest Tech event, in Dublin, in the Startup Village. "WebSummit will be the first such event in MyOctopus' existence, we're thrilled to be a part of such a phenomenal event!" (Wawrzyniec Wawro, Co-Founder & CEO of MyOctopus).  We have a few surprises in store for everyone!


MyOctopus will be the ultimate solution for connectivity, within the home, community and online. Team Octopus aims to empower our users, whether in a dorm or a mansion, office or garden; developer, maker, home owner or millennial; Our goal is to see our user community easily and safely creating the intelligent homes & connected communities of their dreams, their way.
 "With MyOctopus, we are aiming to create a 'human house' , because we are replicating ourselves inside the machine.  MyOctopus shares its senses - you can share MyOctopus' discovery of the world, as it learns, you explore your own environment." 
(Sylwester Hyzynski , Co-Founder & CTO of MyOctopus)


Users can install it in their homes, and configure it in a matter of minutes, through a smart phone or the webapp, and use the standard apps, or download them from the AppStore, and enjoy a responsive, connected, intelligent home automation solution. It can control your lights, heating, house-ware, door locks; - essentially any electronic device that can be switched on and off, controlled electronically or through software in any way.


MyOctopus is an extremely versatile device, with huge potential.  Users can customize any schedule, any setting, any app.  Our software and OS is hosted on GitHub.  New apps can be written and added to our AppStore, apps that can utilize the plethora of data MyOctopus will be aggregating, or apps to link with other sensors and hardware devices.  MyOctopus is also completely buildable and customizable at the hardware level; you can order the parts from us, and build the electronics yourself, add or remove sensors from your system, and change the OS.

This extreme flexibility will be a cornerstone of MyOctopus' success; the demand for customizable DIY focused home-automation solutions is growing within the smart home market.  

“I wanted to create something for the maker community. I believe that they are the most talented inventors and innovators; and they will create the future. I want to give them tools. That’s why I created filamentshop.ie and that is why we created MyOctopus as a multitool platform. Penknives and multitools are by far the most versatile tools there are.”

(Wawrzyniec Wawro, Co-Founder & CEO of MyOctopus)
