Homey, the smart home platform developed by the Dutch company Athom, has integrated Vanderbilt’s SPC security systems. The integration allows users to use their security system for other purposes, too.

“The integration between Vanderbilt SPC and Homey offers a unique best-of-both-worlds combination: EN 50131-certified security, combined with the versatility of the Homey Smart Home platform,” explained John O’Donnell, product manager at Vanderbilt.

Emile Nijssen, creative director of Athom, added, “The best thing about this collaboration is the fact that it allows you to get more out of the sensors you already have. Therefore, it’s not necessary to purchase double sensors or have parallel systems for both security and smart home.”

Since all the sensors of the security system show up in Homey individually, users can easily integrate them into their automation scenarios. They can have lights in the hallway turn on temporarily when motion is detected there, get a notification if a door or window is open for too long, and turn their TV and heating off when the system is armed to conserve energy.
