About Us

HUB Controls is award-winning Irish tech start-up in the home automation/energy management sector. Founded in 2014 by CEO Oliver Hynes, we launched our first product, a state of the art smart thermostat called the HUB Controller in November 2016. 

At HUB Controls our aim is to be the gateway between the home and the energy market. We want to create the first smart home that is smart enough to control its own bills. 
"We believe that you and only you should be in control of your bills" 

Proudly Designed and Engineered in Ireland


Every aspect of the HUB Controller is developed in Ireland. From award-winning design, engineering and manufacturing. 

HUB HQ is in Tallaght, South County Dublin while manufacturing is in Rathcoole Co.Dublin.
