    Developments HomeWizard

    HomeWizard keeps a close eye on the smarthome market. Here we see that there is a demand for simple solutions that can be operated by everyone. The smarthome market is changing fast. In the jumble of home automation solutions we see an important trend in voice control. Large brands will focus on voice-controlled solutions in the coming years.

    We have been working hard to develop new solutions that are in line with these two trends. We have noticed that there have been a lot of questions about the developments around HomeWizard. We would like to share the latest developments with you.

    We have 2 new product categories - Switches and Lighting.


    These are HomeWizard's lighting control products. They allow you to remotely switch lights on/off or dim them remotely. They all work as standalone products, or when combined with the HomeWizard Hub and App give an extra level of control, allowing lights to be switched on when motion is detected, or combined together to make 'scenes'.

    These are lighting products which are fully compatible with HomeWizard's switches. They are energy efficient products, designed to allow automation while saving you money. We have currently added a selection of high quality LED bulbs, which are rated at 25,000 hours - meaning if used for 4 hours per day they should last over 17 years! Keep your eyes peeled, as we will be adding outdoor lights and Philips Hue lights in the coming days!

    If you have OS X Mountain Lion or higher, you could have problems to download the 'Configuration tool'. Apple has a program called 'Gatekeeper'. This should help people against malware. In other words, Apple ask developers 99 USD to sign their app. If you do not pay, the app will be automaticly signed as 'dangerous'. The HomeWizard Configuration Tool does not work if Gatekeeper is enabled. You will see the following message:


    If you (eventually temporarily) disable Gatekeeper and allow applications off 'anywhere', you can download and open the HomeWizard Configuration Tool. You can do this to go to: 'System preferences > Security and privacy' and select 'Anywhere':


    Now it is possible to open the Configuration Tool. You will see a message that the file is downloaded form the internet, with the question if you would run the program.

    Why Apple choosed to give a message 'file damaged' for a program that is not signed, we cannot give you an answer. Apple could choose also 'unknown developer' or something like that. But for now, this is the way to open the Configuration Tool in OS X Mountain Lion or higer.
