How much does it cost?

Hilo is free for the full duration of the prelaunch phase. We’ll lend you the smart devices and install them free of charge (which represents $400 in installation savings). Once the prelaunch phase is over, if you want to continue using Hilo, you can take advantage of an exclusive offer: up to $500* off the total price of your smart devices. And if you decide Hilo is not for you after the prelaunch phase, we’ll reinstall your old thermostats free of charge and take the smart devices back. Simple as that.  

 

*For the installation of 12 thermostats and on the condition of participating in Hilo challenges in intrepid mode and answering our surveys.

What exactly am I signing up for?

You’re agreeing to test our smart home service from start to finish, with the official launch set for the fall of 2020. You’re also agreeing to participate in challenges to reduce your energy consumption during peak periods. Lastly, you’re agreeing to share your experience. Our goal is to develop the best smart home service, so we need to know what works for you and what doesn't. We’ll send you short surveys to see where you’re at.

Am I guaranteed to be selected?

Unfortunately, no. We’d love to invite everyone to test Hilo and help us improve our smart home service before the launch, but we can only say yes to a limited number of users. However, if you fill out our participation form, we promise to get back to you as quickly as possible.
