Easy to Setup

Enhanced Safety & Security

Quickly and confidently secure your home using Reemo. Instead of walking to a keypad, fumbling for light switches, or opening an app, with Reemo you simply point and control. You can turn on interior or exterior lights, lock doors, or arm the security system, all in moments, from a distance.

Greater Independence

Reemo frees caregivers and seniors from the frustration of solving everyday technical problems. Reemo becomes a natural part of everyday life and enhances your ability to control your environment. Since Reemo uses intuitive gestures and natural movements, it is simple to use and the commands are easy to remember. This increases independence and confidence when interacting with the growing amount of devices in our homes.

Compatible with OpenHome Devices

We’re proud to be working with OpenHome Labs to make Reemo an OpenHome Certified Device. Once certified, Reemo will work seamlessly with all other OpenHome devices, so managing all connected devices will be as easy as point and control! Imagine controlling the lights, appliances, and electronics in your house without needing to open an app or finding the remote to control them.

Compatibility with other Home Automation Systems

Even though Reemo works great by itself, we also designed it to work with leading smart home systems. We focused on compatibility with OpenHome Labs to begin with, since they have the largest number of devices in use, but we’re not stopping there. We are also working with other home automation platforms to make Reemo compatible with their devices as well. We will announce those developments as soon as they are finalized.
