Startup of the Year goes to customer of Develco Products


December 7, 2016

The Norwegian energy management and home automation provider, Home Control, has recently been named Startup of the Year at Oslo Innovation Week. Supplied with our Gateway, sensors and smart plugs, the company offers end-users a unique platform for controlling and managing their smart home.

Smart living with our intelligent products

Home Control’s smart home platform provides end-users with a connected, energy efficient, and secure home without compromising levels of comfort. By using the Gateway, the company has been able to develop a unified solution, avoiding the complexity and confusion that appears when each device has its own gateway.

In addition, the platform allows users to manage and control e.g. lightning, temperature, and even remote controls for TV or music through only one app built by Home Control on top of the gateway. Moreover, by integrating Develco Products’ sensors and smart plugs in the platform, Home Control offers a solution that is easy to install, enabling people to build their smart home faster and save money on their energy bill.

Nationwide competition

In the running to become Startup of the Year, Home Control competed against more than a hundred startups from all over Norway. After presenting the company to a jury at Oslo Innovation Week, Home Control was announced the winner and received 300.000 Norwegian kroner.
