Introducing the Homey Pro smart hub; the company claims it’s the most efficient gadget of its kind. As with its forerunner, the Homey, the module enables you to link over 50,000 smart devices. You can also manage them with web or mobile apps or with Google Home or Amazon Alexa voice control.

Many communication options are available, namely Wi-Fi – 2.4/5.0GHz b/g/n/ac & BLE 5.0. Also, newly added to the Pro model are built-in wireless bandwidth extending Zigbee, Z-Wave, Infrared and 433 MHz tools; the prior model required a secondary device, the Homey Bridge, to activate these functions. Future improvements include Thread & Matter capability, which will come to the device in Q3 and Q2 of 2023, respectively. Other tools include Flow, or the updated Flow. This is the tool, which you can use to construct smart home automations, such as producing notifications or modifying a gadget’s settings based on a trigger device.

The Homey Pro uses local computing, allowing it to run even though your internet access is down. The gadget includes a 1.8 GHz Quad Core ARM v8 CPU with 2 GB RAM and 8 GB eMMC Flash memory. You can officially pre-order the Homey Pro smart home hub for USD39999 in the US and Canada. With the first batch of orders shipping in December, you can add the Homey Pro Ethernet Adapter for US$29.
