Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney attended the launch of Smartzone. “This is a fantastic announcement, not just for Cork, but for the entire country as it will create employment and save money for households. Ireland’s economy is improving because of innovative companies like Accuflow who are identifying opportunities for growth in key areas such as wireless home technology,” he said.
Speaking about the investment Accuflow founder Justin Mc Inerney said: “Up until now smart home technology was limited to a very niche audience, mostly trade – but at Accuflow, we want to transform the home heating and water market by making it easy and affordable for everyone to see this incredible connectivity technology at work.”

“Even though we have an international goal to make our marquee product Smartzone a global success, we’re proud of our Cork roots and are collaborating with the Nimbus Centre at Cork Institute of Technology and Ireland’s dedicated “Internet of Things” (IOT) research centre.”
