CHIMNI FOR HOMEOWNERS
An online tool to revolutionise how we run our homes
A Chimni Log is a new tool that will revolutionise how we run our homes in this increasingly complex digital world. It will bring together all the apps, services and online accounts related to your home (eg utilities, insurance cos) into a single, easy to use dashboard.
It gives simple reminders and messaging from the various local authorities, residents associations and community groups.
Most importantly, it helps you manage all the major home 'activities' (buying a home, DIY, maintenance, sale) with simple templates, document stores and info tools.
As homeowners, all the organisations around us - from utilities to local authorities & insurance companies - are turning 'digital'. All the key things we do - from bill paying to buying & selling - are moving online, and new systems are being invented that bring even more new tech into our homes. For homeowners the result is a chaotic mess of apps, passwords and competiting services.
At the same time, our home information is increasingly valuable. Our homes produce more and more data. But, we currently let other organisations create & control it and homeowners are the last group to get access to the good things this data could deliver. Chimni believe that homeowners should own and control of all the information created about their property.
