What's Homey and how does it work?

Homey is a small hub that allows you to control all your home automation equipment.

You can connect your Smart devices, such as Twinkly, to Homey, access and manage them. The smart devices can be linked together via the app, creating scenes (flows) in which one device is allowed to respond automatically to the specific input of another.

 For more information about Homey we suggest you to visit the official page.
