Housejoy launches home automation services

On demand services company, Housejoy has launched home automation services.

"While the space of home automation has picked up pace, there is curious dearth of information on offer, in terms of prices, usage and functionality. Housejoy aims to reach out to the consumers and understand their psyche, thus helping them provide tailored solutions to each household," said Harsha Chaittanya, Category Manager, Housejoy.

Another largely unorganised sector that Housejoy plans to penetrate is the offline at-home space for home tuitions, it added.
