IntelliHome was established in 1993 by Marc Quix. The idea was picked up in the USA and IntelliHome started with a selected range of X10 home automation products, universal remotes, wireless infrared transmitters and a limited range of alarm systems & security products..
In the first few years, sales to end users was organized through technology exhibitions & fairs and by distributing catalogs. At the same time, a distribution network for dealers was set up.
With the rise of the Internet in the mid 90's it was decided to transform IntelliHome into an e-commerce company. The Belgian market was too small and there was a need to reach a larger audience. The response was overwhelming and the Internet appeared to be the natural habitat for the sale of these products. The first IntelliHome site went live in early 1997.
A few years later, the site was expanded into a real internet shop and was set up in four languages. At the same time, the Marmitek product range of X10 home automation products, security products and especially the A/V Multimedia products was heavily expanded. Video surveillance/cameras, was added to the IntelliHome range as the 4th major product category. By that time, IntelliHome became the largest distributor of X10 products in Western Europe .
In 2009 a new large investment was made in a new internet shop to provide our customers with a better and more comfortable shopping experience and making ordering faster and easier. The company moved from Mechelen to bigger facilities in Rotselaar, near Leuven.
On November 1, 2012, the e-commerce operations and customer base of Intellihome.be BVBA were purchased by the new IntelliHome BVBA that decided to expand the home automation product range with new systems and products such as CoCo (Controlled Comfort) and IntelliHome was the first to offer the Insteon home automation system to end users in Western Europe. The A/V product line was also expanded with the distribution of ebode products. And in 2013 Foscam and Wanscam IP cameras were added to the surveillance product range. A new subcategory was also added: X-TRON. X-TRON offers simple and affordable alarm systems especially hidden camera products, better known as "spy" products .
Shortly after the acquisition the offices and warehouse moved from Rotselaar to Geraardsbergen. IntelliHome moved into a building with a warehouse of 500m ² and adjoining offices . These were needed to stock the increased product range and secure the high standard of our delivery service to national and international customers.
In early July of 2013, the innovative PowerCube products Allocacoc were introduced. Another new product line that finds its way into many offices and homes.
On January 19,2014, IntelliHome launched its new state of the art webshop offering the latest in technology taking the IntelliHome shopping experience to the next level.
The next expansion of our impressive product range is the introduction of LED lighting products. This product range will consist of a range of modern fixtures and spotlights by replacing the old incandescent lamps and halogen spotlights thus offering a more energy efficient alternative.
