Our story

  • 2018

    Homelync was formed in 2018 with a broad ambition of creating a technology company with deep social values and a social mission. A well balanced founding team was put together and since then, Homelync has rapidly grown from strength to strength. In our first year we developed an MVP, secured 3 pilot landlords, and raised two seed rounds. 

  • 2019

    In 2019 we secured several additional pilots, a number of 6 figure contracts to scale up existing pilots and won dozens awards. The team grew from 5 to 14 and we set out to raise a £2m investment round to help fuel the unexpected and exciting growth we were experiencing. Our existing IoT device suppliers showed a lot of interest in taking part in this investment round and we set out to negotiate a closer strategic partnership.

  • 2020

    In the Summer of 2020 we closed an acquisition by our industry’s leading brand and a company that shares very similar values to us; Aico. Together, Aico and Homelync are set to become the leading provider of IoT technology to social housing landlords.

  • 2021

    With the turn of the year, we've rebranded to HomeLINK to align branding and product families of the global Ei Electronics group that includes Aico in the UK.
