With home automation systems and IoT devices coming to the forefront through both proprietary, closed ecosystems as well as individual smart devices, one would think the industry s got it all covered.

But what about your other electrically-powered devices, that either don t have automation or are simply standalone products, like a light bulb?

To fill the gap in the automation market, British entrepreneur Mark van der Spuy has developed Vome, a voice recognition platform to allow for easy turn on-turn off functionality for all electrical equipment with a plug.

Think of Vome as the modern day Clapper, but with added intelligence.

Vome will bring your home to life.

As Van der Spuy is an iOS developer, Vome integrates with Apple s HomeKit and Siri, letting users easily speak to LED strips, underfloor heating, lighting, coffee makers, and more.
