A NEW DIRECTION IN OPEN HOME AUTOMATION


BEYOND SMART-HOME HUBS TO INTELLIGENT, RESPONSIVE, CONNECTED HOMES 

 

Dublin, Sept 25th 2015

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.
 
"MyOctopus is the first device to focus on the brain of the house, and not the muscles"
