Mount Kelvin revolutionizes indoor living

In 2007 Apple reinvented the phone. A few years later Tesla did it with cars. Today, Mount Kelvin is doing the same thing to buildings.

Mount Kelvin, a company at the apex of next generation smart buildings, was founded in 2014. The Finnish company, originally called Houm (pronounced ”home” by Finns), begun their journey by making smart lighting solutions to private homes. The software evolved day by day and as the number of installed systems grew to hundreds, the technology proved its reliability. Word was spreading, and the reliability and exceptional userfriendliness of the system got hotels, restaurants and offices around the world to request demos and start adopting it.

The old name now reflected only a fraction of the business. For this reason the company has now gone through rebranding. The new name is Mount Kelvin, referring to installation (to mount) and color temperature (Kelvin).

Jakub Järvenpää, CEO of Mount Kelvin comments: “Right now, there is this huge tornado of digital transformation sweeping over the construction industry, and we are right in the eye of it. The year 2018 has been very eventful and productive. In addition to the rebranding I’m glad to welcome five new members to our team, further strengthening the marketing, sales and technical development of Mount Kelvin.”

Mount Kelvin gives perfect control of lighting, curtains, heating, air conditioning etc. All these can be controlled with wireless and battery-free switches, a mobile app and voice control. In addition, Mount Kelvin offers a wide range of sensors to monitor the usage, status and health of the buildings. Mount Kelvin is intuitive and easy-to-use in daily life. The system is also easy to assemble, commission and configure. Adding a new switch or water leakage sensor is at the fingertips of the user with a few clicks on the mobile application. Mount Kelvin is for all interiors, whether it be for a hotel, office building, retail shop, cruise ship or individual home.
