Was o2 too quick to drop the Smart home product?

Got an interesting news story link yesterday.


Apparently Vodafone are launching an IoT/Smart Home range in conjunction with Samsung. Currently only available in Spain but believed to be followed with other countries.

 

As someone who used (and found it both useful and simple to use) the o2 Smart Home I wonder if dropping it was just a cost cutting excercise or if they realised it was not going to be profitable.

 

Any opinions?

Interesting news @gmarkj, thanks for posting! I'm curious, are you still using any other smarthome products  after O2 Home? slight_smile

Yes and no @Marjo.
The Tado heating is still in use, and we have recently added an Echo dot but the cameras are currently for display only.
I do need to sort them out as there are ways to get them back working but as yet I have not had any time to do it.
Another item on the never ending list of jobs...

Good luck! slight_smile 

Is it then somehow linked with Alexa?

No the Tado is a stand alone system.
I had not thought about linking the Tado to the echo dot we have, but apparently you can. That will make the other half happy - she won't need to open the app just shout at Alexa!
