HouseMate

The Smart Way to Control Your World.

HouseMate enables people with disabilities to access their smart phone and control their environment.

Independently control your smart phone and use it to operate appliances in your home or work environment.

How it works

1. Connect your switch

You can operate HouseMate with it’s built-in switch or you can connect up to five external switches. For joystick users interface cables are available for popular wheelchair controls. 

Whatever your ability there is a way to control your smart phone using HouseMate. 

Switch control

There are literally dozens of accessibility switches available from a.t. companies today, each designed with a particular disability in mind. All of these are compatible with HouseMate. Buddy buttons, Sip & Puff controls, Proximity switches, etc. can all be used to control your device.

Joystick control

Imagine the convenience of being able to use your own wheelchair joystick to control your phone. Well, depending on the brand of electronics in your chair, now you can! Simply switch from driving mode to external access and, hey presto, your joystick is now controlling your phone.

Other access methods

As well as using your phone’s touch screen the Apps can be controlled with other input devices such as AbleNet’s Blue2, our own Point-It! joysticks and even Eye-Tracking devices. In this case HouseMate acts as a hub for controlling the devices in your home. 

 

2. Launch the app

HouseMate is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. Pressing your switch starts the scanning on the screen. Launch the HouseMate app to begin environmental control.

OS or Android Housemate is compatible with both. You choose.

ClickToPhone

HouseMate works in conjunction with the ClickToPhone app, giving switch and joystick users full access to Android devices.

3. Control your house

The app uses symbols to represent the appliances in your house. When you choose a symbol the control box transmits the corresponding InfraRed or Radio signal.

Testimonials

Darren Gabbert, U.S.A.

Life changing technology! Very impressive!
I have been using HouseMate to control my Samsung Galaxy S3 for the past four years. It is important for me to have full access to all device features via my single switch and HouseMate has proven capable of doing just that. The crosshairs feature is excellent for efficiently tapping touchscreen targets, and the swipe feature actually gives me the feel of using my hand. HouseMate has greatly increased my independence. Developer very responsive to questions and suggestions.

Lindsay Adams, U.K.

Awesome application and hardware.
As a C3 quadriplegic of 17 years this app is simply the best thing since sliced bread and gives me 100% access to my Samsung S3 and Note 10.1 (with built-in mobile). We were particularly impressed by the developer who took note of all of our comments and even managed to implement some changes to suit our particular needs. It’s quite simply the only solution available for 100% access to a modern-day smart phone for a hands-free user.

Thierry Boinay, Domodep, France

HouseMate has become the top environmental control in France
HouseMate has allowed so many people to control their environment with ease and pleasure.

By allowing them to use a smart-phone, like so many other people do today, HouseMate does not stigmatize a user, like a traditional disability product. They can use apps like Facebook and listen to music alongside environmental control and communication.

The Housemate control opens new horizons and gives autonomy and pleasure.

Bryan Boyle, Occupational Therapist, Ireland

A single system for security, independence and communication.
Having a single system for security, independence and communication makes it easier to install, set up and support a person with a disability and their family at their home.

Because the HouseMate Pro can be accessed by touchscreen, alternative pointing device or by switch it makes it suitable for those whose physical functioning may be changing or deteriorating.

Using a SmartPhone at the heart of the system makes it a desirable technology for people with disabilities. They have become tired of using specialized, disability products. My favourite piece of user feedback so far is “it brings home control to your home screen!ew horizons and gives autonomy and pleasure.

Martine Rujiter, Occupational Therapist, The Netherlands

Benefits many of our clients on a daily basis.
The HouseMate, in combination with the Click to Phone app, gives our clients a lot of autonomy in their lives. With a switch or wheelchair integration they can, in spite of their disabilities, use their entire smart-phone. In addition, they once again can control, for example, their doors, lights and television. In other words, a great aid that benefits many of our clients on a daily basis.

Petteri Jämsä Kajo, Apuvälineet Oy, Finland
