When it comes to building a truly seamless smart home, one of the biggest hurdles can be managing multiple devices, each with their own potentially conflicting protocols, requirements and individual apps.
This is where the role of the smart hub comes into play and one of the latest offerings from Finnish tech brand Cozify is looking to orchestrate the noise of all your smart devices into an integrated symphony of connected perfection.
The Cozify Hub is a slimline wireless smart hub that aims to bring all of your smart devices into a single point of harmony and order, allowing you to control (and automate) every device in your home from one point of contact.
With different smart devices often doing their own thing around the house as well as at different times throughout the day, the major advantage of installing a smart hub is to unite them all under an integrated umbrella – effectively the command and control center of your interconnected home.
It’s in this role that Cozify is looking to excel with their take on the essential modern smart hub, allowing you to bring everything together and control it all from the companion Cozify app (Android, iOS, Windows) on your smartphone, wherever you are.
One of the things we particularly appreciate about the offering from Cozify are the variety of bundle packages that can be purchased for a comprehensive solution tailored to different situations. These are effectively smart device collaborations built around the hub itself, all of which are a good foundation whether you’re just starting out, or expanding your existing smart home ecosystem.
Bundling together the Cozify Hub with various flavors of smart home devices to meet your situation-specific requirements, the packs also offer a financial cost saving on the price of purchasing the components individually.
From the Cozify Starter Pack (which includes 2 smart bulbs, a WeMo smart plug and a Centralite motion sensor) to packs focused on safety and security, there’s a good selection of choice for putting together a set of devices centered around the hub, all of which are ready to go out of the box.
Alternatively of course, you could just go for the hub on its own and build your smart home rig around it yourself. And don’t worry, in this instance, there are a whole lot of devices that Cozify is compatible with.
Offering the ability to communicate with smart home products from brands including Philips Hue, SONOS and Belkin means there’s a good choice of essential compatibility for foundations to any new smart home set-up from lighting through to sound.
