Here is our story

Our goal remains, but our approach has changed.
From working during our free time alongside full-time work and studies to becoming a full-time job with 90 employees and counting. What started as an idea has become a real business. The ball started rolling when we sold the first 20 smart home packages.

The journey of Futurehome is the journey itself. From getting support from our first investors, our first major deal with Get, our partnership with Arca Nova and to finally buying back the shares of our company in December 2021. The journey has brought us on the course we are today, the course of smart energy management.

At the start of 2023, Futurehome celebrated its 10th anniversary and for that occasion we gathered the entire company at Finse in Norway. We reflected on the first 10 years and looked ahead to the next 10 and our goals for the upcoming decade. Check out the highlights of our trip!


2013 – Futurehome was born

In 2013, four individuals joined forces to bring an idea to life. From noticing a gap in the smart home market to developing and testing the idea and getting our first customers, 2013 is where it all started.


2014 – Struggles

Without a loan or major interest from investors, we started the original crowdfunding campaign. With a goal of raising at least 200,000 dollars in two months, the beginning was challenging. However, the goal was ultimately reached just a few hours before the deadline.


2015 – Gaining recognition

After a successful crowdfunding campaign, Get, a Scandinavian TV provider, along with other major investors, was interested in purchasing Futurehome. Futurehome ended up receiving 10,000,000 NOK of investment from IKM Invest alongside others, but we remained in close partnership with Get. 


2016 – Going official

Futurehome’s official launch party was held in 2016, with many of our first customers, clients, and investors in attendance.


2017 – Futurehome evolves

After having Get as one of our largest customers and as a supportive party for a few years, Get eventually purchased 51% of the shares of Futurehome. Get was later aquired by the telecommunication company Telia, which meant 51% of Futurehome was owned by Telia.


2018 – Smart energy

In 2018, collaborative work with Enova (Norwegian government enterprise) and Arca Nova (real estate developer) launched, and Flex projects were developing in different places in Norway. This led to a major acceleration of our introduction to the green shift.


2019 – Recognition

Working with apartment buildings and smart fire alarms allowed for major growth in the company. Ultimately, Deloitte awarded us with the fastest-growing Norwegian technology company award, where we were placed second for the same award the following year.


2020 – Global workforce

Remote work became the norm in 2020, which allowed us to grow as a global workplace. We expanded and started recruiting talent from all around the world.


2021 – Back to the roots

Towards the end of 2021, the founders of Futurehome, together with multiple employees and investors, purchased Futurehome back from Telia.


2022 – Launch of StrømKontroll

In 2022, Futurehome merged with the Norwegian hardware company Connecte, which prepared us for our launch of StrømKontroll. We are now creating more of our own hardware products and expanding our smart energy product and service offering.


2023 – Into the future

With a new focus on hardware, a major position in the energy sector, and owning the major shares of our own company, we are ready to push the envelope even further. The real journey begins now!

in numbers

With ten years of operation, our growth has taken us around the world. From one small office in Stavanger to three offices and employees from around the world, Futurehome now maintains a global presence.
