How a custom installation business put an end to awkward software, saved truck rolls, improved scalability, and made sure that everything was perfect for their clients.
HOMEPLAY, a UK based Home Technology business, have been offering support services for the last 3 years. Prior to discovering Domotz Pro, the HOMEPLAY team used to combine little bits of software like VPNs and TeamViewer to remotely troubleshoot issues for their customers. Over time combining bits of software proved to be quite awkward to manage and impossible to scale. HOMEPLAY was looking for a better solution.
HOMEPLAY initially tested out Domotz Pro on 3 client sites. After validating the features and customer experience, Domotz Pro was quickly implemented on a further 12 client sites. Now HOMEPLAY uses Domotz Pro anytime an installation is completed to ensure that everything is working. Domotz Pro was the right solution, to bring everything together under one user interface.
In one instance a HOMEPLAY installer was onsite finishing an installation. By using the Domotz mobile app to validate that everything was working for the client, the installer identified that an important device was offline. The installer immediately re-plugged the device and resolved the issue. Without Domotz the issue would have only been discovered upon returning to the office. In the end, Domotz saved the HOMEPLAY team another truck roll out to the customer’s home and made sure the client satisfied.
“Domotz PRO did everything we expected, and more.”
“We were one of the first customers for Domotz so have seen a huge amount of improvement to the platform over the years. Today, Domotz is by far and away the most comprehensive tool for remote systems management available, and still relatively inexpensive. It’s one of those tools that makes me think ‘how did we ever get by without this?!”

On a day-to-day basis the HOMEPLAY team frequently use Domotz to remotely reboot Sky set top boxes for their customers. Domotz PRO’s alerting features notify the team in real-time when a device has gone down and through remote power management they can reboot the device, sometimes even before a customer notices. Domotz enables the HOMEPLAY team to proactively prevent issues to keep their customers happy.
