growth
Finance, Insurance, IT or Data Analysis [ Energy management solutions, Information technology ] Internet of Things
The problem with Smart Homes: they are either expensive, complicated, fragile and quickly out of date or filled with gadgets with limited applications. That's why we invented dingz: a Smart Home should be easy to install and even easier to use. It doesn't need to cost too much and has to remain open to future developments. We think we did it. What might just look like an elegant light switch is nothing less than the bridge from traditional living towards the standard of the future.
