Device Icons & Indicators

We've just released an update for the iOS & Android Homey app. So, what's new?

You can now choose your device's icons, and their status indicators.

New! Custom Icons
It is now possible to change the icon of a device to something else. For example, a built-in module can now be a light. Or your plant sensor can show as a… well, plant.

With many choices like curtains, soundbar, tv and even an aquarium, your device overview instantly feels more like your home.

New! Status Indicators
A device’s status indicator —which shows a device’s information at a glance— can now also be chosen.

Additionally, a numeric measurement (e.g. temperature, power usage etc.) can be chosen, as well as a beautiful battery indicator.

A better smart home
We’re very proud that Homey is the most customisable smart home system that always looks & feels great. Your home is unique, and your Homey should reflect that in every way.

So go ahead, make sure you've updated to version 6.8.0 of the mobile app, and upgrade your devices!

🎬 See it in action.

As an added bonus, Alex invited Homey's founder Emile to the studio to tell about the design process of this new feature.
