As seen in

We're excited that editors and writers from respected industry publications get Reemo. Plus, our parents couldn't be prouder to see us in: 

Enhanced Safety & Security

Quickly and confidently secure your home using Reemo. Instead of walking to a keypad, fumbling for light switches, or opening an app, with Reemo you simply point and control. You can turn on interior or exterior lights, lock doors, or arm the security system, all in moments, from a distance. 

How secure is Reemo? Reemo devices will not respond to commands from wristbands that have not been authorized by the primary user to control them. Furthermore, the Reemo system will also log and report unauthorized control or access attempts. The way devices are provisioned onto a Reemo system during setup or expansion of a system requires a simple yet secure proprietary two-factor authentication providing a level of security that exceed the standards for existing home automation systems while being simpler and more intuitive. The only way to highjack someone’s Reemo system will be to steal their Reemo wristband. Even in that scenario, the missing/stole wristband can be stripped of all its permissions or completely removed from the system from our web / mobile app in under 30 seconds.

Greater Independence

Reemo frees caregivers and seniors from the frustration of solving everyday technical problems. Reemo becomes a natural part of everyday life and enhances your ability to control your environment. Since Reemo uses intuitive gestures and natural movements, it is simple to use and the commands are easy to remember. This increases independence and confidence when interacting with the growing amount of devices in our homes.

Working Prototype Demo

We demoed a working prototype of Reemo at the Solid Conference May 2014. Will also be showing live demonstrations of Reemo at Tech Crunch Disrupt SF in Startup Alley on Sept 8-10, 2014 and at CEDIA Expo Sept 11-13, 2014. Please stop and say "Hi", we'd love to demonstrate Reemo for you!

Easy to Setup

Compatibility with OpenHome Devices

We’re proud to be working with OpenHome Labs to make Reemo an OpenHome Certified Device. Once certified Reemo will also work seamlessly with all other OpenHome devices, so managing all connected devices will be as easy as point and control! Imagine controlling the lights, appliances, and electronics in your house without needing to open an app or finding the remote to control them. 

Compatibility with other Home Automation Systems

Even though Reemo works great by itself, we also designed it to work with leading smart home systems and connected devices. We focused on compatibility with OpenHome Labs to begin with, since they have the largest number of devices in use, but we're not stopping there. We are also working with other home automation platforms to make Reemo compatible with their devices as well. We will announce those developments as soon as they are finalized. 

We've come a long way
