What’s this all about? “We provide a free platform that allow you to control your home from anywhere in the world.”

After you create your account you can find a complete tutorial tutorial inside, but I’ve decided to post here a sneak peak!

This tutorial example is something really easy that anyone can follow trough. This was the best example I could create to explain how this works.
