INTRODUCING MYOCTOPUS: THE INTELLIGENT SMART HOME TO WEBSUMMIT 2015


DO YOU LIKE YOUR HOUSE? DOES YOUR HOUSE LIKE YOU?


Dublin startup MyOctopus Ltd   is delighted to be showcasing MyOctopus, the Intelligent smart-home multitool at the upcoming Websummit 2015 . This 5th global tech gathering will be the biggest one yet, bringing startups, investors, tech giants, journalists and top companies together for a week of talks, discussions,workshops, and events.  This ecosystem defining global 'think-in' promises to be the best one yet! You will find us at booth M145 in the Startup Village on Wed 4th Nov.- Be sure to come over and say 'Hi' - We will make you feel at home!



INTRODUCING MYOCTOPUS: THE INTELLIGENT SMART HOME
 
With MyOctopus, we are creating an open-source intelligent home, a creative smart-home multi-tool, which users can customise at any level, from application to hardware.  At Team Octopus, the user is at the heart of our design.  By this, we mean that we are thinking about people, every step of the way.  Every home, every lifestyle is unique; we are creating a smart home that will be personal to each home and user.

 
The self-learning capabilities of the AI will allow MyOctopus to be the 'brains of your home', managing your data, devices, schedules, and even your diet (if you so wish!).  A quick example: MyOctopus can change music and lights as you move around the house, and adjust this depending on the time of day.
 
Fully open-source, both hard and soft, packed with onboard sensors, a self-learning AI, able to connect to virtually any device, and to record and store data from 'dumb' devices, with an integrated IDE within the sensor dashboard, MyOctopus is the most fully featured, flexible, 'human' smart-home solution on the market.

MyOctopus is also the only smart-home offering an embedded IDE within the dashboard, which will allow our users to design their own apps. We will have intermeshed communities around the maker / parts part of our business, and also around an AppStore for software apps.

We will be offering special perks and offers to early members - follow us on Twitter and sign up to our mailing list to get in on the action.

DESIGN CORE
We have recently partnered with DesignCore , Carlow IT to work on elements of MyOctopus design, user connection and innovation.  We feel that their human-centred design ethos fit's well with our design concept of 'a human-centred house'.  We received a warm and enthusiastic response from the DesignCORE team . We look foward to working with them. 
 
MEET US:
All 4 founders will be attending at Websummit 2015: We are seeking to meet with interested parties to build partnerships & lasting relationships, and to discuss future investment and our detailed plans. We already have a few meetings lined up, but will be in attendance for the full Websummit, please contact us using the Websummit  app Twitter or Scheduit for a chat over a pint or coffee.
