Smart Home, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Connected Life - terms that were still dreams of the future for the majority of consumers a few years ago, are already omnipresent today and will revolutionize our daily lives even more in the future. Whether language assistants, intelligent kitchen appliances or remote controlled Smart Home technologies - our future will be increasingly connected. The prerequisites for a successful digital transformation of our society are transparency and essential information about the opportunities and challenges of intelligent, connected technologies and services as well as the generation of a better understanding of the potentials of smart devices. This is where our new member home&smart comes in, which has set itself the goal of preparing the topics of Smart Home, IoT and E-Mobility comprehensibly for its users as well as implementing content-relevant digital services.
The internet platform homeandsmart.de, founded at the beginning of 2017, is the leading independent consumer portal for the topics Smart Home, Internet of Things (IoT) and E-Mobility in Germany. In around 2,000 articles in more than 100 categories, homeandsmart.de offers cross-vendor information on products for the connected living and housing of the future, presents current trends and innovations and supports end users in purchasing decisions with sound advice, reviews and tests on relevant market products. Every month, the multimedia information service is visited by more than 590,000 active users.
In addition, the information portal is provided as content-as-a-service (CaaS) via a white label solution to B2B customers, especially energy suppliers and municipal utilities, for their own web presence. They can thus offer their end customers digital consulting services as well as interesting content from the Smart Home world under their own brand and can position themselves at the same time as a competent, innovative company.
The young company offers a look into the future with its editorial format "Pretty smart!", where it introduces startups and crowdfunding projects with innovations in the fields of Smart Home, Internet of Things, Energy and E-Mobility.
The aim of the startup is to further expand its existing white label offering in the future and to add new digital user-oriented services.
Since March this year, the homeandsmart GmbH is a member of the Berlin Innovation Center Connected Living and will enter in the future in the cross-industry exchange of experience and knowledge with its more than 60 members in order to expand its know-how in the fields of digitalization, IoT, Connected Life and Smart Home and enter into profitable partnerships.
"Smart home and E-Mobility are THE trend topics of the future. We are pleased that we can join Connected Living as a member and help shape these topics", says Sven Häwel, Head of Cooperation at home&smart. "The Smart Home of the future is in the focus of our portal – Connected Living with its diverse activities is therefore the ideal partner for us and we look forward to an intensive and fruitful cooperation."
