How Yonomi Is Powering Smart Home Connectivity in New Jaguar Land Rover Vehicles
While Yonomi is most often thought of in connection with our mobile app, businesses around the world are becoming familiar with Yonomi’s smart home technology for entirely different reasons.
With the introduction of Yonomi ThinCloud in mid-2017 and Yonomi One in early 2018, companies ranging from small startups to global leaders have gained access to powerful new tools to help them develop and grow their smart home devices and services.
Among these companies leveraging Yonomi's suite of IoT platform products is Jaguar Land Rover. In January of this year, Yonomi partner Gentex announced that Jaguar Land Rover would be the first customer to debut its new HomeLink Connect car-to-home automation technology.
The new service, integrated into JLR's InTouch apps, uses the Yonomi One platform to allow drivers to control their homes from the comfort of their vehicle’s infotainment screen — no matter where they are on the road.
Gentex, a longtime leader in car-to-home technology, first approached Yonomi in 2017 to explore ways to extend its popular HomeLink service beyond garage doors and gates and into the home. By building on top of Yonomi One and leveraging Yonomi's existing connections to more than 100 popular smart home devices, Gentex was able to launch HomeLink Connect and announce its first customer in under a year.
While HomeLink Connect will launch later this year in all new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles, you can learn more about how this partnership came together in our latest case study. Click below to read it for yourself!
