Homeflow Smart Living are a newcomer to the smart home market, however they have a great line up of smart home devices new to the market designed to enhance your life by automating lighting, appliances, sockets and more.
Their system is completely plug & play.
Simply replace your existing light bulbs for the new smart bulbs to gain full control over your lighting.
Create lighting scenes and recall them with your voice using Amazon Alexa.
Set schedules so that your outside lights can turn on and off automatically every day.
You can even set the robot vacuum cleaner to clean the floor on a daily schedule!
Homeflow Smart Living Devices
Based on the popular, and reliable, Tuya Smart Life platform the brands products include;
- Smart bulbs
- Smart switches
- Motion Sensors
- Contact Closures
- Indoor & Outdoor Smart cameras
- Smart plugs & extension leads
- Smart locks (indoor)
- Robot vacuum cleaners
The range looks to be high quality and comprehensive enough to solve most smart home problems from the same brand.
It’s important to note though that you can also use other Smart Life devices from other brands on the platform so if you’re trying to achieve something that Homeflow doesn’t do (i.e a wire in relay, siren, water leak detector etc.) then you can simply add other Smart Life compatible devices to the app and use it within the system.
There is a free app which lets you take control of all your devices, set times, schedules and automations.
Smart Life is a very good system with a great app, you can achieve quite a lot without spending a fortune or needing to re-wire your house.
As with all smart bulbs you do need to leave the light switch on for them to work, in my home we almost completely use Alexa to turn the lights on and off.
Homeflow Smart Living Works With Alexa & Google Assistant
You can also use all of the devices with Alexa, we had great fun with the robot vacuum cleaner – “Alexa, hoover the kitchen floor”!
All in all with Homeflow Smart Living you can simply replace your existing light bulbs, add plug in sockets etc and create a fairly comprehensive smart home without spending a lot of money or requiring specialist installation.
You can also tie the system in with IFTTT (If This Then That) for greater integration with other smart home systems.
