      Still waiting to receive my 'Geek Edition' here in Australia.

    2. Silantyev Maksim on April 23, 2016

      It gets worse - It appears that my Homey is dead on arrival. It powers up and I get the spinning light, but the Homeysetup network doesn't appear.....let's hope I get a reply on the forum on how to get this fixed or a replacement. I have to say, quite a disappointment after this long wait.

      Just received my Homey - not had a chance to test it. I am quite disappointing that the issues which have been reported both here and on the forum about the UK power adapter haven't been fixed. The one supplied to me is also completely useless and wrong.

    5. Silantyev Maksim on April 6, 2016

      Heh, not received Homey yet :(

    6. Mark Van de Ven on March 4, 2016

      Geek Editions were shipped a couple of weeks ago. There is quite some activity now on the forums. Geek Edition users are essentially 'public alpha' testers while Athom is holding the rest of the delivery back until 'most issues are gone'.

      The product packaging looks professional and the build quality of the product seems to be decent. On the software side however, there is still a long road ahead. This product as a whole isn't yet close to what was promised in the Kickstarter, it looks like at least 3-4 months of software development is needed for making the core stable, release an ios app, and make it compatible with the devices listed on the Kickstarter campaign.

      (+Additional work by the community will then be needed to support the immense range of possible products to make it a real value-for-money controller)

      So it's moving in the right direction, but way over time and I hope not over budget...

      For those that have questions about Homey, I suggest you go to: forum.athom.com
      There is a lot of information there and helpful people discussing tips&tricks.

      Can somebody help: i can't get my homey connected. It seems that it does not make a wifi connection

      Also from the UK, and as Paul comments, the supplied power adapter is next to useless and is not fit for purpose. and the cable supplied is also not fit for purpose as it needs a right angle micro connection. This needs to be noted for mass production...and I am too a little disappointed with this following such a long wait :(

      Paul on February 12, 2016

      Also the supplied GB adapter does not go well with the USB power adapter, the holes are too big so its extremely loose.

      The UK adapter is clearly for Schuko 'type F' plugs, but your adapter is the 'type C' europlug....

      Paul on February 12, 2016

      Homey arrived (UK)

      The usb power cable supplied pushes the homey off its base so it falls forward.. I don't understand the thinking behind either the placement of the socket or not supplying a right angled connector?

      I'm also seeing holes all around under the light, as if its not fitted properly. Does this come apart?

      Slightly disappointed already :(

    12. Jack Krielen on February 11, 2016

      Received also Homey (Geek Edition) - Netherlands

      a response in the forums of Athom website:

      Update 28/01/2016 14:49
      Most production bugs are fixed! We're currently producing at about 250 Homeys per week. We expect to increase this capacity in the following weeks/months, but it's good enough for us now to resume production and resume shipments!

      If everything goes right, which of course we can't guarantee, the Geek Backer (so not the pre-orders) Homeys will be sent around the 8th of February.

    19. Jack Jansen on February 1, 2016

      Can we get a status update, please? I'm a dutch geek backer, so I would think that I would have received my Homey by now, but nothing has materialised yet....

      Maybe in 1 month's time, roughly, I can again switch my lights on and off. What a painful wait for all my KS projects this has been, but i can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.... well, can certainly see my living room lights anyway.

    22. Silantyev Maksim on January 13, 2016

      :( And i'm non-Europe backer.

      We're mostly working on stabilizing Homey, by squashing bugs we find. Issues can be found here. From then on, we will introduce new features.

    24. Vincent on January 8, 2016

      @Silantyev Super EB will be the last of the backers who get it, but before the preorders. If all goes well, it should still be this month.

    25. Silantyev Maksim on January 8, 2016

      I'm SUPER EARLY BIRD backer and i still waiting for my Homey :(

    26. Vincent on January 8, 2016

      For those not following the forum. There have been two confirmed deliveries with pictures. Emile said there were at least 5 Homeys set up. A couple of bugs were encountered, but Athom is releasing up to two updates per day with direct communication to solve all issues. I guess they are holding back sending anything out until they are sure they got the biggest issues resolved.
      An update would be nice though :)

    27. Werner Hellinghuizer on January 8, 2016

      Still waiting for my Homey.... (Geek edition)

      Q: I found nice wireless led lamps on the site of AppLamp. Do I need an aditional wifi-box to use the Homey of is the remote control sufficient?

    34. Harry Buurman on November 10, 2015

      Awesome news guys!

    35. Vincent on November 5, 2015

      No one mentioning the demo Emile will be giving for Tweakers.net? Live stream is at: http://tweakers.net/acties/meetup_domoticaedition/

      Emile will be on at 19.15 CET (the talk will be in Dutch, but might still be interesting).

    36. Vincent on October 25, 2015

      Emile wrote this on the forum (yesterday):
      >I'm gonna post a Kickstarter update tomorrow with a wrap-up and some more info :-)

      So let's hope an update will be done today or maybe tomorrow.

      @Everyone since @Athom can't be bothered to update it's Kickstarter Backers (Who by the way helped fund this project in case they forgot), here is the latest from Emile,

      "About the delays, it seems we can at least get new proto's within 1.5 week, which means that if they're good, +3 weeks and then we ship every order while they're being produced. So a total of max. 2 weeks delay. But that's not 100% certain of course!"

      They had an issue with IR so they needed to get this resolved....which has been as of today according to their forum
