    "Smart Living as a Service"-Platform & Marketplace enabling businesses for digital ecosystem compatibility and the future of smart services with artificial intelligence

  • home-iX keyvisual


  • Has your industry or business ever thought of participating in the smart home, smart energy or smart metering business?

    These verticals, the so called smart-x industries, require significant cross-domain integration in order to create more compelling value propositions and innovative smart living solutions. Big companies within these verticals often view each other as competitors and fight for the “ownership” of customers by promoting their proprietary ecosystems and standards. The resulting interoperability issues and plethora of alliances, interest groups and solutions are forcing interested parties to cooperate with multiple partners at the cost of seemingly endless integration efforts and countless business contracts.

    home-iX unchains your business from these burdens by offering a flexible platform and marketplace which simplifies and reduces the complexity of business relationships. This allows your company to focus on its core business while home-iX enables it to effortlessly enter the smart living market. With home-iX your company can achieve competitive advantages, new revenue streams, and increased customer satisfaction by offering a smarter connected lifestyle.

Our Mission

  • Our mission is to empower businesses and industries to take advantage of the smart living market by providing them with a suitable and flexible platform for easy integration.

    We believe that the success of smart living services cannot be driven by big companies or single industry sectors. In our view, the success of a cross-domain and customer-friendly smart living ecosystem can only be achieved with an open smart living & IoT platform which connects traditional industries - e.g. insurance, healthcare, automotive, entertainment and consumer products - to the huge potential offered by smart living systems such as smart home, smart energy, smart metering, ambient assisted living, and mobile health. As a neutral startup, we want to democratize the smart living market with open standards, sources and cross-domain services.

    home-iX was founded as a B2B startup in 2016 with the goal of enabling industries and businesses to fully participate in the smart living & IoT market. home-iX solves the interoperability issues between multiple smart-x providers and allows its customers to create new revenue streams across the smart living ecosystem.

home-iX offers an open, neutral platform and marketplace which simplifies and reduces the complexity of managing multiple relationships between different partners by providing a single connection to the conUgate platform.
The platform has been designed from the ground up to ensure compatibility between smart-x ecosystems and enables industries, such as the automotive industry, to fully participate in the smart living market. It does this by allowing these industries to connect to, and orchestrate, ecosystems via a standardized, cloud-based B2B-platform using single point of contact.
