How does RoomMe identify people?

RoomMe uses the registered smartphones of family members to identify their room level location.

Are there any privacy risks?

No! RoomMe uses the Bluetooth signature of smartphones to identify them. It knows nothing about the actual user to which the smartphone belongs.

Can RoomMe detect people that do not carry their smartphone?

No. To be detected, people need to have their phones with them.

How many RoomMe sensors are required?

One sensor is required for every room where presence detection is desired.


A minimum of two sensors is required in every installation.

Will RoomMe work if the smartphone is off, RoomMe app is killed or Bluetooth is off?

No. RoomMe requires the phone to operate, the RoomMe app to run on it in the background and Bluetooth to be turned on.

How much battery does the RoomMe app consume?

Our tests show that the RoomMe app running on a smartphone for 24 hours consumes about 1% of battery.

How room control priority works?

RoomMe uses an intelligent priority system to dynamically decide who of all present people controls a room.


When programming the RoomMe system, you define every user as either a parent or a child:

  • When several people are in a room, RoomMe gives control priority to parents before children.

  • When two parents are in a room or several children are in a room, RoomMe gives priority by user type and then by the time of entry - whoever entered the room earlier, gets priority first.

In addition to the parent/child priority, every room can be defined with a "room master" - one user which whenever present, gets control priority for the room, regardless of being a parent or a child.

Must RoomMe sensors be mounted on the ceiling?

Yes. Each sensor comes with 3M Command strips for super easy and damage-free attachment to most surfaces.


RoomMe only works with flat horizontal ceilings. Its cannot work when mounted to diagonal ceilings.


Command Brand is a trademark of 3M.

Autonomous Smart Home

Imagine walking through your home as light, temperature, music, TV, camera and other appliances automatically set themselves to your time-based personal preferences.

It's Amazing!

Makes Your Smart Home Amazing

RoomMe integrates with your smart home to enable fully automated room devices personalization by telling your smart home who is in a room and by who's preferences, of all people in a room, room devices need to be set.

You’d think the home-automation industry would have a little more home automation by now, after three decades of telling our smart-home systems what to do by pressing a button or otherwise announcing our presence in a fairly non-automated way.

The RoomMe “room-level personalization” platform from Intellithings could be just the accessory for getting our “smart homes” to do exactly what we want them to do in any given room, at any given time.

Your Energy Savings

What's smart about having to remember to turn room devices off when you are the last person to leave? How many times did you forget to do it?

RoomMe tells your smart home when you leave a room and if you were the last person in the room, so your smart home can autonomously turn off room devices or set them to energy saving mode.

I didn’t tell my wife about it, but when she walked into our room for the first time and the lights turned on, she said, “Wow, the lights just turned on. That’s cool.”

As a “power Nazi,” I love that the lights also now turn off when the last person leaves a room.

Family Safety Video Switch

Family Safety & Security

RoomMe sets a new standard for family safety and security at home by analyzing family members' presence to generate personal safety and security insights and alerts.

Monitors Your

Children's Home Presence

RoomMe gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your children are back at home on time, without you having to do any monitoring yourself.

Once you program RoomMe with the child's expected daily room presence hours, RoomMe automatically detects when the child does not enter the room during the expected hours and alerts you.

Monitors Your

Parent's Home Activity

1 of 3 people at the ages of 65+ fall every year. 1 of 5 falls end up with head injury or broken bone(s). However, many seniors avoid using emergency pendants due to shame.

Installing a RoomMe system in your parent's home gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your parent is active at home based on the parent's smartphone and without requiring the parent to use a pendant.

Once you program RoomMe with the hours during which your parent is normally present in different rooms, RoomMe automatically detects when the parent does not enter a room during the expected hours and alerts you.

Gives You Peace Of Mind To

Manage Home Emergencies

When there is an emergency at home, the first thing you want to know is who's there and might be at risk or can help resolve the emergency.

RoomMe works with voice assistants to provide you with the ability to ask who is at home or where at home a family member is, and get a fast answer.

Reduces Your

Parent's Chance Of Falling

One of the main causes of falling is the need for seniors to reach the light switch in dark conditions.

RoomMe makes your parent's home a safer place by connecting with an existing smart home or smart light system in your parent's home to automatically turn the light on and off based on your parent's presence.
