Now, you can read below an interview to the HOMYHUB’s team
Tell the community who you are and what is your project about:
The garage is now no longer a place only for your car, boxes or your bike. The possibilities are endless, and HOMYHUB makes them possible for you. HOMYHUB’s mission is to unlock the full potential of garages to make them a valuable space in people’s lives. Our company focuses on products and services for garages, all designed and developed around our main value: simplicity.
To achieve our mission, as a first step, we have created a solution that turns the smartphone into a Smart Garage Remote. This allows to control, monitor and manage access to the garage from anywhere and at any time. So you can open the door from your mobile, revoke access or give it in a personalized way as specific as you want (unlimited, for months, days or hours), and know in real time who enters and leaves, or if the door is open or closed. Without forgetting, that also allows the door to open automatically when you approach it, so that you always keep your hands on the wheel. In addition, HOMYHUB not only allows you to open the garage from your smartphone from anywhere you are, it goes much further. It offers you a New Generation Services marketplace, to unlock the full potential your garage has.
What differential value do you contribute to the sector that doesn’t do your competitors?
The most important value that HOMYHUB provides or to say only HOMYHUB provides, is the power of New Generation Services. Services in the sectors of Deliveries, Sharing Economy and Connected Cars.
In short description, the three layers of new generation services are:
- Secure delivery : After a successful pilot in 2018, this year HOMYHUB and Correos are launching the service of Citypaq Garaje. With this new generation service, single-family home users will be able to get their packages delivered in garage without physically being present during the time of delivery. Also saving millions of euros for the logistics company due to the issue of the last mile failed deliveries.
- Sharing Economy: Not just a place to park your car or dump boxes rather garages will be a smarter place and make you monetize it, by allowing various sharing economy platforms like, parking sharing, car sharing, EV charging sharing, etc. to integrate with HOMYHUB’s solution.
- Connected Cars: Behind the curtains many premium car brands are on the stage to integrate with HOMHUB’s solution to allow premium services directly in the garages. Also with the feature of Proximity Opening, now you don’t have to take your hands off the wheel while entering your garage.
This is how we commit to our mission to unlock the full potential of garages.
Who is your product or service aimed to?
Our product or service is aimed at anyone who owns a garage, anywhere. It can be someone with a single family home garage, garage in a community or garages in office buildings. If you have a garage, HOMYHUB is the smartest solution to turn your garage into a Smart Garage.
Tell us about your team, what motivates you and how is your journey so far:
HOMYHUB’s team is made of the perfect attribute and aptitude. Comprising of entrepreneurs who showcase the perfect startup formula of a “hipster”, a “hacker” and a “hustler” as the founders of HOMYHUB. This helps in engaging a very strong, smart and diverse team, making a small group of people motivated to achieve bigger goals and thrive for excellence.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In the coming five years, HOMYHUB aims at unlocking the full potential of more than 300.000 garages and making them Smart Garages. We want to be the “APPLE” of garage door openers and with our new generation services connect more verticles in the sector of mobility and disrupt the world of garages. All these not only in Spain but all over Europe.
How do you see the mobility sector (in the specific sub-vertical in which you work) in Europe?
Our sector is changing the way we interact with the mobility sector. As HOMYHUB, we are opening the doors for the different sector in the mobility ecosystem by not only improving their business but also allow them to create new business models to bring more value to the customers in a unique way. We see that until now the mobility sector has been innovating but growing individually. But now there is more development in the mobility ecosystem by connecting them with each other, known as connected mobility. That’s where HOMYHUB is disrupting by allowing different players to collaborate and make people’s life simple, convenient and safe.
