Next Up: Multi-Home Support

by | Nov 2, 2018 | Announcements, Beta, Features

We’re currently working on bringing multi-home support to Homeboy. If you own and manage two or more properties using Insteon, you’ll soon be able to switch between homes in Homeboy to control each of them. This is great for people who own a vacation home or manage multiple rental properties. Insteon’s own apps don’t all offer this feature. Android users currently have to rely on a Windows or iOS device to switch between homes.

If you’d like to be one of the first to try this new feature in Homeboy, we’re looking for beta testers with multiple homes controlled by (2245-222) Insteon Hubs. We’re making an early beta release available for Android, following up shortly thereafter with our beta release for iOS. Unlike our previous updates, this will initially be a closed beta. So even if you’re in our beta channel now and receive beta releases when we make them available, you’ll need to specifically sign up for this one.

But signing up is easy! Just send us a quick message to let us know you want to participate in this beta and what mobile platform(s) you have (iOS or Android). Please send your message from the email account associated with the device you’ll use for testing. Otherwise, please be sure to indicate what email address we should use.

We’re excited to be adding this new feature, and we hope you’ll be willing to help us put it through the paces before distributing it widely to the entire Homeboy community. And, of course, we’re hoping to get your feedback along the way!
