Managing Director of Home Connect Plus gives an outlook on the upcoming payment function.
Home Connect Plus – the intuitive smart home solution!
More and more people are using smart gadgets at home. It gets annoying when you have to use multiple apps. With the Home Connect Plus app, you can connect, automate and centrally control various smart home devices and entire systems from different manufacturers.
In an interview with t3n, the managing director mentioned integrating a payment function. The basic functions for device operation and automation should remain completely free of charge in the Home Connect Plus app. The company also wants to introduce value-added services. For example, energy costs can be saved for an extra charge. The interview also mentions that smartphone notifications are often missed as well. For example, when you are on a plane or in a meeting. Home Connect would like to work with partners there, for example to strengthen the sense of security. With this, Home Connect wants to refute the prejudice that Smart Home is a gimmick.
The interview is very interesting. If you want, you can read the full interview here read. I don’t think the idea is bad, but I have to admit that I wouldn’t be ready for something like that myself.
