Which other controllers are simular to Homey?

Are there any other controllers available yet which are simular to Homey?

The strong points of Homey is that it can control several systems (zwave, zigbee etc etc) in one device.

In the past there was no other device which could do this, but we are now almost 2 years further and it would not surprise me that other brands have copied this, so which brabds/devices are simular?

    Except for DIY-projects none that I personally know of. And taking the UI into account then none at all...

    Saw this one, coming soon in the USA -> http://atmoshome.tech/ Has also z-wave/zigbee on board

    ok zwave and zigbee both is not that unique, vera has also both and is a very open system and easy to program for.
    VIn that case i would prefer vera because it is a proved system and also for years available.

    It is more protocols such as IR, BT, RF 433/866, NFC etc what most systems do not have

    As can be seen above also has IR/BL but no 433/866 but that is normal because it's US market and they don't have 433/866 (kaku). Also here you see the movement from KaKu (433) to move to Zigbee because that is a more futureproof signal with two-way information. 433/866 will die in the near future for home automation when users want more stability and reliability
  • There is also "myhomebox" https://www.myhomebox.house

    Has most of the same controllers as Homey. Don't have hands on experience with this one yet :)
