1Home Digest: January '24 - Week 3

Here's a quick breakdown of everything we've been following in smart homes over the past week:

When in Dubai…

Tim and Rok had an awesome time on their trip to Dubai this month!

They visited the Light+Intelligent Building Middle East and Intersec Expo, packed with smart home novelties and innovations. This was also a great chance to connect with dozens of new customers.

The trip was also a great opportunity to strengthen connections with existing partners in Dubai and assist them with their 1Home integrations.

One of the trip’s highlights was a demo for a luxury project of 50 villas, powered by 1Home products. Thanks, Sophisticave Smart Home Solutions, for showing us around!

We are already looking forward to visiting again - watch out Dubai 😀
