Michigan auto supplier teams up with smart home software developer

Jim Harger for mlive:  Automotive supplier Gentex Corp. is moving inside the home with  a $5 million investment  with Yonomi, a 5-year-old software company that focuses on smart home applications.

The relationship will allow Gentex to use Yonomi's software applications in more than 70 popular smart home applications, the companies said in an announcement on Monday, Jan. 8.

Gentex is using Yonomi software to launch HomeLink Connect, an new home automation app that pairs with the vehicle and allows drivers to operate home automation devices from the vehicle's center console display or rearview mirror controls.

Drivers of HomeLink Connect compatible vehicles will be able to download and configure the app to control individual home automation devices, or set up entire home automation "scenes," the announcement said.

"For instance, when heading home, one HomeLink button press could adjust a thermostat, turn on home lighting, disarm the security system, unlock the door, and begin playing music."  Full Article:
