A Kenyan startup is targeting to automate your house by allowing you to switch on the lights, set temperatures, let the neighbor in to feed the dogs as you are still at work and draw your curtains remotely via your mobile phone.

Flint Home Integrators is pushing that brave idea into the Kenyan market saying the quality of real estate in the country has reached that level of Internet of Things (IoT).

Founder Steven Ngosia says there is actually zero competition in the country which is a major advantage for him and his team of engineers.

The company which also enables one to view the videos from the CCTV cameras of his house is also looking for investors to solidify its presence in the market as high end developments rise in Nairobi at a fast pace.

Kenya’s real estate capital investment has been largely concentrated in upmarket areas and activities remain intense in both residential and commercial space providing a market for the startup started last year.

Property managers Knight Frank said in its latest report that Kenya is on the radar of high net worth individuals seeking to buy a home abroad for holiday.
